    I have a riva rear air and you can hear the supercharge wind up, the fellow racer here in region 5 have the fizzle and the riva front air that goes inside the ski, and you can barely hear the supercharger at all,

    But with the rear air kit you can get the boat wet really or really turn and get it in the water and stuff right?

    Yes you can injest water easily with the rear air kit and with the restrictive riva filter, you loose air flow. You can loop a kanaflex around and install the filter behind the front air intake and you will hear all of the supercharger

    I sure hope I don't ingest water. Before I ordered my riva rear air, Jerry said it's fairly hard to ingest water with the rear air and pre-filter on.
    Any can chime on water ingestion with pre-filter???

    I have not actually ingested water while riding. However, while washing my ski with the Riva rear intake I have had water go through the pre filter.

    I usually ride on fairly smooth lakes. When you ride prior to installing the rear air check the area forward of the rear grab handle to see if it is wet. That way you will know what not to do after the install. Doing the tight spins and high wave jumping probably will not be a good idea with any rear air kit. The Riva pre filter is very restrictive on air flow. I have seen almost one 1 Psi more boost without the filter installed.

    So it sounds like the Fizzle is a pretty good intake to go with then?
