    Riva S3 Supercharger feedback

    I need to upgrade my stock supercharger this winter and the new Riva S3 Supercharger sounds very good, but was curious to hear from people who own them about the performance gain (sounds like 300 rpm+ from previous posts), but also on the compressor surge. Is the surge quite noticeable on every SC sold? Anybody feel that this might cause a problem down the road?

    I've had no surging, No problems. The power gained is well worth the cost.

    Alex, are you running the BOV on yours? That might help due to releasing boost when not at WOT ...
