    UPGRADES?

    How can i tell if a 03 gtx supercharged is bone stock or stage 1+ or would i have to have a dealer look at it. just wondering its already fast enough weither its stock or not. Got it for my birthday and my dad said the guy said it had upgrades. the opas was removed and has some kind of riva "caps" covering the two holes.. new to this any info would be great! thanks

    Look for an air filter mounted near the front/right side of the engine. There would also be a spacer between your pump and your pump nozzle. The propeller would likely be 4 blades instead of 3. The "caps" are called OPAS block-offs and it sounds like it has the cheapie Riva set.

    take a picture of inside the hull where the supercharger is, should see a riva intake I would presume. Since it has the OPAS removed I would think that it does have a kit on it.
