Riva waterbox vs gutted oem!!
Can anyone confirm if there would be, or if there is a performance difference
Between the riva waterbox and removing all the baffels from the oem. Anyone done it or compared the two?

I think the the riva one is better, but using a reflash or aftermarket ECU is the way you will get the most out of a riva box. A gutted stock box will do a good job. It all depends on what your setup is...

I've got motec. Aiming for 350-400hp eventually. Surly the riva is just an empty box. It's dimensions are about the same as the oem.

I hear ya. I've already rebuilt all the internals except crank. from what I understand you can run big boost 18-20 psi with low rpm . About 8300 . I've set limiter at 8500. Bit of a segue from the water box . I think I'll just gut the oem and run riva rear exhaust.

Anything is better then having the box stock.

Is anyone else, running a non-baffled waterbox, having horrible luck with O2 sensors? Even when using a heat sink bung extender, it still only lasted about 2 hrs before I noticed it reading wrong. I was told, the non-baffled waterboxes allow more water to splash back into the manifold...I just pulled my stock waterbox out of storage to try, when I hopefully get another sensor from autozone under warranty.
