    Intake Grate for SHO

    Hey guys, what intake grate are you guys using. I've looked at the R&D and Riva grates, don't see much difference between them. What intakes are you guys using the most with good results on these FX SHO's ? What kind of improvements in speed or handling can I expect ?

    R&D here for years, no problems at any speeds.

    I have the R&D, but didnt do any speed testing before putting it on. The only real observation I have is that it feels like you hit the brakes when you let off, and it improves hook up rough water. With just the intake grate and everything else stock i was running 66.5MPH on the GPS

    Riva claims that their Intake Grate stops the nose from diving down when letting off the throttle...wonder how true this is....does the R&D grate keep the nose from dropping when letting out of the throttle ?

    i think it does not only depends on the Grate but also on the Plate.

    Does anyone know what the stock pitch is on the impellar for my 09' SHO ? Maybe looking at repitching in the future, just need to know what stock is.

    Pretty sure it's 12/19 or 12/20.
