What can I expect form the Riva Intake Manifold Upgrade Kit?
I am running the mods in my sig - I don't want to go over board but since its 22 degrees outside I thought this might be a good winter upgrade. Thoughts? I ride at high altitude 5000-6000 feet.

I got it done to my rxp-x i felt a little more top end with it, I think its good for .5 mph easy, thats what i noticed when i did gps runs back to back.

You will get around .5 to .7 psi more boost just from eliminating the restriction. This will translate into better throttle response, bit better acceleration and small increase in speed as noted above.

DEFINETLY worth doing BUT, save yourself $100+ and just do it yourself by pulling the flame arrestor out of the throttle body end! It IS a bit tedious but, with patience, about 1.5 to 2 hours you'll get it out without buying Riva's kit.
I used long needle nosed pliers and long nosed tin snips and cut it up in a bunch of pieces. Use that $100 on other parts!!!!!!
I saw much quicker throttle response, quicker rpm rise, and about .5 mph increase.
