    Open Looped vs Closed Loop?

    What are the benefits to each on a RXP? Is there a thread i may have not seen about it ? Seems like it would be more reliable and add HP. I bet JD or the Greenie have ran both Anyways have a Stage 3 Riva RXP and was just curious about each system. Thanks guys

    I really like having closed loop, but switching to open loop enables us to run aftermarket ride plates. Good things are coming, we just have to be patient

    One thing I'm quickly finding out, is that all the "theories" on poor temp control on open loop is HORSESH1T.

    I think its just a marketing thing for companies so they can say "Hey we added a new feature thats supposed to make it better and improve the craft."

    If a ride plate was made that did anything to greatly improve the numbers on an RXP, there would be an EPA disaster with all the antifreeze spilled from the changovers....
