    RXP-x260 Riva stage 1 review

    Bought and installed the Riva stage 1 kit with an added thru hull exhaust kit today. The exhaust sounds mean and the intake kit really helps the supercharger scream, but not seeing any real gains. OEM 70mph @ 8040 and 70mph "stage 1" at 8100. Not impressed. This thing pulls like a freight train until 8100 then cuts out hard. Hoping someone from Riva sees this thread and feels like a dink for promising legit gains. VTECH tune on deck

    So you are saying that Riva SCOM is fake and doesn't work?

    You just basically paid $800 bucks for an air intake, and catch can. The SCOM is a joke, but one hell of a money maker for Riva (thanks to those who are dumb enough to buy it)! Your best bet is to put that $$$ towards a reflash of your choice...... cause you'll end up doing it anyway in the end

    Your not the first person to feel duped by RIVA with there claims on stages. Unleash the ECU with Vtech or get another(i.e. MoTeC or Athena) then you'll start to feel the real power a 260 has.

    It takes about 2 minutes on here searching about SCOM for these skis to find out they do next to nothing.

    I highly recommend you listen to many of the posters on this site. This forum isn't like a lot of forums on the net with a bunch of rookies at best on it. Any wrong information giving is usually corrected very quickly by another member.

    Sorry to hear about the results. Lot of money for no gains. If it weren't for all the great info on this Forum I would have probly did the same thing.

    Doubt i'll be going down the Athena road and paying for any more Riva products. Seems like Vtech is the way to go
