    Thumbs up Riva stage III built finally here!!!

    Hello everyone, My name is Julio and I live in west palm beach Fl about 45 minutes north of Riva motorsports. I first bought the fx SHO back in january 2008 then upgraded to the FZS on december of the same year and I have been waiting ever since for the stage III kit, I always told Dave Bamdas I was either going to do it all or nothing at all.

    Having said that I'm very exited to anounce that I have purchace all components of stageIII and have started work on it. So far I have installed the fuel presure regulator and I'm in the middle of modifying the intake manifold to acomodate the intercooler and the blow off valve vacum hose fitting. So far I have to admit that the wait was well worth it!!! All Riva products come with a step by step detailed instructions that makes it extremely symple for just the regular guy like myself to do the install.

    I decided to go with the Vipec ECU since Riva build the maps, I like to be able to count on the same poeople that made all the other power making parts that depend on the ECU for any technical support I may need.

    This is it for now. I can't wait to put this beast on the water and see what it feels like to do 80+ on a three seater!!!

    I will post some pictures as I make progress as well as performance data.

    I was in your same predicament around this time last year. Then I joined www.soflariders.net and I havent regretted it. Great bunch of people! We'll ride with you regardless if your in the club or not, but we are trying to build a pwc army! Look forward to riding with you! (if you dont mind constantly waiting for a VX) Welcome to the forum!

    I'm in Delray right near Lk Ida if you ever want to come down with the ski once you get it finished. I know that little Belvedere Lk gets boring quick, & if we go to Osbourne they hand out tickets for racing.

    Good luck on the build. Should be a badass ski when it's done.

    For sure. I have made the trip from West Palm all the way down to lake Ida down the canals. I love the area near the freeway. Great place for some racing!!!
