Interesting first ride!
Picked up an 04 RXP215 a couple months ago and after countless hours of reading the goods and bads on here as well as spending about $2000 on it I finally got to ride it for the first time. Aside from the new groco leaking at one of the fittings, an injector wire that came unplugged and the connection for the charging system wires that I forgot to plug in the ride went well... after an hour of swearing.
Installed was an xs ic w/bleed mod, gen 2 wheel, 42lb injectors, 15/20R, exit nozzle w/81mm ring, opas blockoffs, removed nosecone, 08 exhaust, riva intake, catch can, riva washers, riva grate.
I got 72.1 on the gps, 1000ft, 65f, 7950rpms. Glad to see a reasonable number with not have ridden it before. Any more input on what I could to to get a couple more mph? I used the hose that goes out the exhaust at the back for the bleed mod is that a good place?
Here are some pics

I would go with a 4 inch air intake, and the freebee mods if they have not been done already..Speed seems a little low for them type of mods..hmmmmm

Pitch that prop to get your rpm's up to 8100

Pick up a guzzler rear air kit and your rpms will possibly be spot on.
Put a few hours in your ride plate sealing and filling it good and you will proabably be around 75.
Where did you get the blue hose for the water lines at?? that looks pretty cool.

Could he possibly be lean with the I/C and 42lb inj? Might need a RRFPR?

The only free mod that hasnt been done is filling the rideplate holes, and that will come soon. That should help a bit. Also gonna do that mod to the midpipe as well. That blue hose came from the local auto parts store. It is expensive silicone stuff made by goodyear, couldnt pass on the color!

PUT IN an 83 mm RING..
You will pick up about 100 rpm and a little speed.
Plus, your hole shot will improve.
I wouldn't think that you are lean due to your elevation !!
