    Question Got My Riva Stg I Kit Today

    Is the "Intake Duct" plastic?

    I know Pette just got one for his RXT and this was questioned by another forum mbr. Green Hulk responded that it was indeed alum powder coated black but I could swear this thing is plastic.

    intake is plastic, yes.... exhaust is metal (thats what Pettee got, an exhaust)

    plastic intake is good, less heat absorption

    I think the exit of the SC is aluminum but no the intake side. There is no need for aluminum on the intake side.

    Pretty sure this is correct......

    Ohhh...I see. Looking at the pics Pettee posted that exhaust looks almost identical to my intake tube.

    I remembered reading about somebody's ski almost sinking because of something plastic catching fire and it was a Riva product so of course it concerned me.

    Thanks for the clarification guys. Now I just need to build up my confidence and install the kit myself.

    Intake is plastic, I put that on a while back ( will be making my own 4" soon enough I am sure)

    The thru hull, although it looks plastic, is in fact powder coated alum.
