    Riva Power filter vs. filter bolted directly to SC on SHO

    Anyone do any back to back testing between Riva Power filter and a filter element bolted directly to the SC on the SHO motor?
    Thanks

    I havent but I have seen water ingestion on the sc mounted filter when running in the ocean. The Riva power filter takes it up to a safer place.

    Not only is the RIVA power filter a safer place. The air from where the RIVA power filter is being drawn is cooler than where the filter would be mounted right next to the extremely hot supercharger.

    Thats my exact thought, thats why i have the Riva SHO intake on my conversion. Had to modify the bracket a little but it works well. Just wanted to know about power gains if any with both setups.
    Thanks for the reply's gents.

    Hitman posted somewhere he picked up 100 rpms from JDs intake vs the powerfilter. But for ocean the JD intake isn't the best option.

    i did back to back testing for a full weekend in different sea states (i ride in salt all the time) i purchased the riva power filter when i got my ski 2 years ago, i went with a filter dirrectly bolted to the charger and also tested with nothing on. i gained much more throttle response with filter bolted dirrectly to charger, and even more with nothing on.
    i also gained roughly 100 rpms i have since sold my riva and stuck with the filter bolted dirrectly. the filter i used cost $20 and the waterproofing i got from work,
