I'm stuck, can't decide which one to get, Riva's gen-2 or R&D Pro Series Racing Intercooler.
Riva is rated up to 500 hp, R&D up to 600
Riva can be disassembled for general maintenance, R&D can not.
Riva needs the hks backbreaking BOV to instal ( I'm never doing that again), R&D uses an easy clamp on BOV.
Riva gen one is a pain to install, gen-2 is bigger, so more of a pain, is R&D bigger then gen-2? Will I have to take the head off the block to install it?
They are neck and neck. Please help!!!!

I looked at the R&D I/C's also, both great coolers. For LI waters maybe you can get away with the existing Gen1, and if there is any heat soak during the summer months then you know. I'm pretty adept at stating the obvious

Yes you are.
Athena's dash logger does a great job at monitoring air temps, I will try to see if the gen 1 is doing the job.
Real question is, and a side by side comparison would be needed to see, which one does a better job around 20 psi. Things get weird after 12-15 psi, not sure if any intercooler can keep up with that flow.
