    Just go with a motec, E1 wheel, JD intercooler and then do the small things and you will be golden. New impeller too! Add in an exhaust upgrade, new air intake, exhaust manifold upgrade, Jims modded VX plate, R&D INTAKE GRATE IS A MUST, 1000cc injectors, 3 bar map sensor, RIVA or JD cooling Kit, and you should be good to FLY!

    congrats on the purchase.......
    how much did you get it for?
    ok. know first and foremost get rid of the oem intake, unless you want to go flyin off the ski @ wot.......
    r&d intake and a plug kit.
    also i would highly reccomend drilling out the 4way for the hose connection going to the intercooler. that hole is really small. this is located in the back . where the waterflow comes in off the pump. you will expierence heat fade if you do not due to the ic is starved for water to cool the intake air.
    i would also reccomend the jd offshore air intake and of course his intercooler. that thing rocks.....and for half the price of a riva ic, if you include the hks bov......

    i would go with the jd air intake. he has 2 kits. one is an offshore kit, which is the one he has pics of on his boat in his build thread.
    definetly the jd intercooler. and i would remove the ribbon when you upgrade the intercooler. also look at his cooling kit too, when you upgrade the intercooler.
    i have the r&d cooling kit. which has been partially changed to the jd cooling kit.
    some upgrades you can do one at a time and others you see the benefit when you do them at the same time.
