Any speed gains from intake grate on 05 RXT?
I know other models benefit but I can't find any info on wether or not there are speed gains to be had. I'm using my stock grate ever since I snapped the Riva.
Also will I need to do the pump shoe upgrade since I'll be around 77mph? Can I just tap for longer stronger bolts?

I know Skoepp did some testing on a RXTX and found that a stock modded grate was fastest followed by a Riva.

Now...the same results prolly happened with me but I wanted better hook up in the chop...and had added other small mods all the while with no gps at the time.
My understnding is the better grates are bigger drags...but the more ponies you're pushin the easier it is to over come that extra drag and take advantage of the greater hook up.

When you fill your plate bolt holes...fill your grate's too and be sure to flush it to the plate. That will help with hull drag too. I also used permatex to seal and flush all the joints between grate/shoe/plate/hull.
