    Gen 3 vs r&d intercooler

    Hey guys...

    I building the shopping list for mods to my px260

    Been searching through posts and found a fair few with problems with gen 3 riva leaking

    has this now been sorted or is it still problematic ?

    has anyone tried the r & d for sale in the online store? More reliable?

    i live in Australia so the down time & high costs of return shipping a faulty I/c would really frustrate me ( I'm sure riva wouldn't pay the high $$ associated with return post etc..)

    I see fizzle has a new intercooler available however I don't want to remove resonator which is required of all the fizzle coolers so unfortunately they wouldn't suit me

    For the riva users, can anyone confirm if the gen 3 fits in the original mounting position and brackets?

    Thanks

    Get the gen3 and get it at the store since your Jerry and its Jerry site that will go hand in hand. Someone got to pay for the domain and such. Not to mention Jerry is a great guy he's only got one problem He is from LA J/K

    I buy all my goodies from jerry,and more to come , great site , great people , great info .. My skis would be all stock if wasn't for greenhulk....and how boring would that be. Lol

    but. ... Just wanna makes sure riva gen 3 isn't a high risk of leaking... I realise every now again things go wrong, but heaps of people seem to have problems ... Perhaps that was the first batch ... . Thoughts from riva users?

    Also need to confirm if gen 3 fits in standard px location , using standard fittings etc

    If you are willing to figure out the piping my intercooler will work on the stock bracket

    Fizzle love to see your intercooler be more plug n play for the diy's. your products are great and far less expensive and the only reason I did not mention your intercooler was the piping. I know the demand and cost does drive you out wards and that sure sucks!!!!

    Not true... the stock hoses work just fine.
