    s.c. wheel delima E TECH11.3/ R&D C3/ RIVA B1?

    By looking at the product info in the online store.
    It looks like the etech is a step above the c3 as far as the boost goes by the rpms?
    I used to run with a C3 and had good results with the oem pump.
    I am looking for some real world results with those running the etech 11.3 and the riva b1.

    Anything in particular you're looking for? Speed/rpms enough?
    Mine won't be mind blowing but I hope to be able to have my gps numbers this weekend.

    I have installed many low boost ET wheels i have seen as much as 15 plus pounds of boost at 8700 rpm plus.
    The highest i have seen with the B1 is 14 plus at 8700 rpm.

    i have a ETSS setup and my bro has a B1 setup both R3 reflashes with the same supporting mods and the ETSS outperformes the B1 all around and its a lighter wheel aswell.

    i have a friend that he is running a type 14 IC, R&D R2 at 8200 to 8300 rpms, ET LOW BOOST WHEEL and he is running 82 mph. I think ET wheels are the best choice

    I am looking for a good reliable setup without getting crazy with the boost.
    I had good results with the c3/r2 with the oem pump except for the cavitation issue. But, with a 160mm liner and prop it did not have enough power to turn the prop.
    Then i went to a c5 and have been having motor problems since then. So i am thinking of going to lower boost and back to a r2 or r3 with oem injectors.
    I thought the et low boost wheel would be in between a c3 and c5 performance wise but it sounds equal to a c5 or maybe a small step up from the c5!

    Well, when i first installed the c5 i melted the #2 piston and rings. So i did the riva internals upgrade and know it looks like the oem exhaust valves got hot in one cylinder and the valve seals are leaking in two cylinders.
    My afr has been very rich under 11.0

    When i ran the c3 everything ran sweet. But, i have been wanting to be in the mid 80's
