    R&D is currently the only option other than stock. I read on here that Riva is working on one. Also from what I read here the R&D is supposed to offer better rough water hookup with no top speed loss.

    For me, I have pretty much no issues with hookup running the stock grate at the moment, so I am going to wait to see what RIVA comes out with and base it our their results.

    Troy, are you running the R&D?? Chad over the winter will be upgrading to full Athena with the logging dash. He already ordered the prop and has prototype speedfreeks intake on the way to get things started. The ski only has 3 hours now though and only hitting 7700 and running high 64's on GPS.

    I will be helping fully with this build. Did you pull your FA out of the manifold as well?

    Yea, seems like he will be close to 70 and in line with what is expected. Hopefully he will get the prop and intake in from SF just after he gets those hours run.

    Still running the stock grate. FA is gone. My revs started to come up right after 4 hrs, then peaked at 5 hrs.
    Good luck with the build. Give me a holla if yall got any questions.
