    is it safe to use E1 to race in an offshore race for 75mins?

    Can the engine hold on to it?my engine internal is all upgraded with Riva's....

    It sounds like Riva would be the best one to answer that question.

    I've done it before but with a stage 2 and no engine internals so I say yea. You should be more than able.

    My opinion is NO. I don't think the clutch can stand a beating in the ocean for offshore racing. When that pump is coming un-hooked over and over and you are close to top RPM's...that is murder on any engine. 16 PSI of boost for 75 minutes cannot be good.

    It's not a matter of the engine internals being able to handle it......it's how long ur supercharger clutch is gonna last. Hooking and un-hooking is tortuous on the supercharger clutch.......especially if ur running higher levels of boost. Good luck though.....like to see how the ski handles it....

    Well great. This should be the test for the RIVA dampener. Post back and tell us how it holds up. Btw how many hours have you put on it so far ?
