    Water temp with Riva Open Loop

    So tonight I took a ride and had smooth water and made a few WOT Runs and watched my temps close. Above 8600 the Riva Kit Jumps from 165 to 175 and this is the first time I have been able to hold wot a bit. RPMS were just shy of 9k.

    Ski is running like a raped ape 68/140 XLE is no joke.

    That's almost exactly the same temps I used to see on my 08 with open loop.

    Stock pistons and internals holding strong for the time being. Compression still 135 or higher across all cylinders.
