    Slow91's 2008 RXT-X build.

    Ok, bought this as my "leave it alone" ski, well that lasted all of about 20 mins when i realized how comfy and amazing this ski was to ride than my GPRXP. Bought it in may 2011 with 38 hours on it, stayed stock with me for almost 1 full weekend. By the Next weekend, i had a R&D intake grate, Solas 15/22R, Riva Intake, ET137, Bosch 48's, Riva RRFPR. Ski in the cool weather went 77mph not even touching the prop, or even putting in reduction nozzles, stock plate and ECU. Having no way to monitor AFR's due to an exhaust manifold torx bit being stripped i decided to leave my fuel pressure at 57psi to be safe, this was big time rich. Over the winter, and in my spare time I decided to pull the head off to remove the manifold, and drill it for the wideband 02, i decided to install some Ferrea valves, then the Supertech Valve spring kit, a 29 cam that i lightened, Ported the head, and installed some of my custom made Bronze valve guides. At that time i decided i wanted to remove the TOPS setup all together. I took a stock 08 valve cover and welded on a bard fitting to run a catch can setup. Here are some pics of my progress so far, i will be updating it as i finish it.








    Tunnel Wrapped:







    Ported Head:





    Riva Gen3:








    The next round of parts will include: Vtec hand held tuner from Jerry, Duke Pitched Prop, Not sure if i want to go Rude2 or a ET 68/140. I might go ET because im taking a rude2 in on trade soon that needs a rebuild, Riva Sponsons, Riva PRO BO's,Finish up the Riva Open loop. Hopefully when all that is done it will be warm enough to water test. My goal is 83+ with this ski.

    My ski LOVED the R&D grate i put on there. The POS riva grate was horrible in anything other than glass water. The Riva Wedge Helped as well. With the riva stage 1 setup minus the reduction nozzle the ski would run 73-74 in the hot humid summer heat all damn day.

    Looks good Chris. 83-84 isn't that hard of a goal considering what you have and what others have done in the past with same or less.

    A few years ago we had Tommy Bonilla's running in that range with a 2 rude and reflash with my modded oem plate.
