    riva gen 2 vs stock vs x charger

    I have a 06 speedster 200 and I don't know what to do. Any suggestions for best bang for the buck. On rebuild. I want it to still be reliable.

    im running a gen 2 wheel on my RXP and love the snappy response and extra couple lbs of boost. You can beat on that wheel all day its super reliable.

    if you are able to do the x-charger swap then do it! Bigger charger =more power but ur gonna need more fuel

    the gen 2 wheel gets me 9lbs of boost and i think stock boost on an x-charger is 10lbs.

    stock 215 charger makes around 6 lbs if i remember correctly.

    Thanks slydogge, I would start with the simple and cheap stuff first like 4inch intakes. That gave my first speedster way better throttle response I wouldn't waste my money on wheels especially if the chargers are nearing the 150 /200 hour full rebuilds. I would look around for a set of x chargers and some injectors. Like slydogge has on his boat that would be the way to go.
    Just get that trim setup done first real interested on that build.
    I been meaning to call you just been busy with work.

    Here is a list of things I am doing to my boat at 1 time I am installing 2 sets of jl 7.7 seperates 2- jl 10 inch subs and a 900 watt jl amp.lam doing the trim I have both pumps off and I need impeller's and wear rings. I have the superchargers off they have 175 hours on them and I don't know what to do spend 400 on rebuild each or spend 850 on rebuild plus gen2 wheels or 900 on x chargers plus injectors and I have know idea how much they are

    That's always a option also. It just depends on your budget and what your willing to spend. You can make all kinds of power with different chargers or wheels but its useless without being able to keep it hooked in the water. My setup makes good power but anything over 3/4 throttle and it jumps right out of the water. Buy most of your stuff thru the online store Jerry's a good guy who has more nowledge then us put together plus he stands behind his stuff and always answers your questions.
