    Question about Riva IC and a boost guage..

    I never looked too far in to it yet but from what I can see it doesnt appear that the sender is going to fit on the front manifold boss with a Riva IC. Am I correct in assuming this? I ask because the instructions (power cooler) want you to cut the front boss off of the manifold which Im guessing is due to space being needed.

    If I'm correct then is there anyway around this with the Riva IC?

    Are the same issues present with the R&D unit?

    Any major disadvantages between the two?

    Thx in advance!

    You can use the R&D port adapter for your boost gauge connection if you want. Thats what myself and many others have done.

    Yeah I though about that but wasnt sure about grinding the boss down. I already have a dynotube sensor installed there and wasnt sure if I'm able to plug it after taking the boss off.

    I run this adapter as well and its a great piece. Just a heads up... there is a new adapter for the 2011 skis.

    Nothing as far as I am concerned. The R&D kit is a little more 'professional' I suppose. I think a lot of guys just use a basic T instead of the 60$ kit.
