I recently did the Riva relocator kit like seen here in the store... http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=935 and am overly pleased with the kit. It makes everything so much cleaner and the fit and finish is exceptional. As far as performance increase, I can't say for sure being I did it with a Riva shorty box at the same time. The ski definitely picked up with both items installed. It was a gain of close to, if not one full mph. As many will tell you, the cleanliness of the inside of the hull compared to the stock configuration alone is worth the upgrade.

This kit can be used as a complete replacement to the RXP-X intercooler system. http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=983 It's like "2 in 1" because it relocates the intercooler and you can sell your stock setup to recoup the costs if you'd like to.
With this intercooler there is a lot less of a chance to experience the swelling that most complain about when running high boost through the X intercooler.

No offense at all, but the XS IC is no upgradefrom a Stock X IC. The Stock X IC is far superior and as far as swelling If you do not want to take the time to install a propper set up then you may have swelling, but if you stay stock cooling or do the correct openloop cooling you will never have one issue.
The XS IC is for sure a relocation IC, but IMO no upgrade at all. You are going backwards.

Like I said the XS is a good kit for a relocation set up, but does not perform in the LONG runs.
James all I am saying is for his best set up is a Stock X IC he has and a Riva relocation kit is the best way.
Both IC have there place. I have used them both, because for most people they love the budget IC.
