    TDR vs RIVA waterbox

    Apart from the loud noise that TDR waterboxes make..., what will be the difference in between RIVA and TDR concerning to performance??
    many thanks

    The riva box flows better due to the mandrel bent tubing... but I don't think that really amounts to anything noticable performance wise.

    How much better does it flow tho? I've been contemplating between the two and am leaning towards the TDR for the sound but I'll be running a high revving ECU so i am also interested in flow/performance.

    I agree with bigdaddy, it will be very minimal loss if that, nothing your going to notice.

    No noticeable difference. The TDR setup looks better (stainless), is a bit cheaper. They sound about the same IMO.

    The TDR boxes are aluminum... not stainless. The riva boxes are powder coated, as aluminum does corrode. The TDR box is considerable louder than the riva!

    The Riva waterbox is constructed 10 times better. Riva also has a nicer non ear-bleeding controlled tone to it. Sounds alot better than the TDR, my 2 centavos. Heard both and liked my Riva box much, much more.
