From last year August it was released. Every time I ask them they always say there in their last stage and figuring out the last problem and it's always a different problem. I can't see why a big company like RIVA can't get a turbo kit to work. Smaller companies have built them in way less time. Also it's not to say their building it from scratch. From last year August a perfectly working prototype was working.

Maybe the Turbo kit true is...
The true may be that a turbo kit may give only almost the same results as a supercharger kit - or just a little more final velocity!
So there is a question that is:
- Does it worth the risk of be just a little bit faster with all those turbo adaptations, hard-work and still having at the end a not reliable ski?
Because with all those new products and high-performance parts developed to superchargers kit now, it can even be better or almost equal as a turbo kit.
Turbos are complicated and hard to setup, I know this because all my life I´ve been working on it. And Superchargers have less parts involved to setup - that turns it into a more confident setup.
At the final, Riva may have recognized that it´s to hard to put a turbo kit like this to sell to everyone, with or without mechanical experience, and until give some warranty over the final result.
Maybe the turbo kit for jet ski only be good for those who really loves continuous challenges!
Heehehe...I love it, but for now I prefer to stick with the superchargers...
Riva could also explain their thought too. Or somebody!
But I still hope for someone to develop a reliable turbo kit so we all could afford and use confident!
Right or wrong, this is what I think.

I think turbo setups are not reliable in offshore application.
