    Please comment on my 04 GTX SC to do list

    04 GTX SC 20 Something hours

    1) Rvia stage 1 (Done)
    2) Metal washers,ceramic bearings & Riva wheel(figure do all 3 while i'm in there)
    3) PPG non res exhaust pipe
    4) Fill rideplate holes & mate grate to rideplate
    5) OPAS block off's
    6) Riva thermostat

    I would like to stay away from through the hull exhaust & intercooler for this season. The PPG pipe I already have and the washers are on the way(thanks PR & mxl16!). Not looking to have the fastest non IC out there, just looking for some nice reliable improvements. Ok people fire away....

    Looks like you are off to a very good start and right on track going forward..... The intercooler would definatley be my next choice.

    Why is that? They have both proven to be effective and you save a few dollars on the Riva one when installed correctly.
