    Def do it. Even spending the money on the full riva kit is worth it.

    Pal save yourself the cash and just remove it the hard way, takes an hr but why waste good money when it just takes time to remove it yourself =)

    Well worth the effort tho

    My buddy and I installed this mod last year and both saw nice gains on our 09 x's well worth the money - you will not be disappointed!

    In the Riva installing instructions they say that it is recommend to remove the Intake Manifold.
    And....
    it is realy hart to believe that the only way in, is to use the riva hole cutting tool.
    This is a picture from my Intake Manifold Modell 2014.
    Your´s look realy same?

    While you do need to unbolt the manifold, you don't need to completely remove it from ski. Took me 30 minutes to do mine by positioning intake enough to get the drill/holesaw in position. I did remove the TB and used a shop vacuum while drilling and an air blow gun to blow it out. If you do slowly and vacuum before you poke through, there will be very little shavings going in intake.
