    Intake Grate Reviews for FX SVHO

    Anyone have reviews on the R&D vs Riva intake grate for the 2014+ fx svho?

    The OEM grate is close to the same as the Riva but the R&D is different.

    Is there mph loss in smooth water, alot better hookup in the rough, noticeable cavitation improvement?

    I am curious about this as well. Glenn said a few mph gain with his R&D grate. Anyone test this?

    Yea glenn told me 1mph gain with a lot better rough water hook up but Jerry told me the Riva was better, but Riva is pretty much like the Oem svho grate

    Not sure if it's worth the swap or not with having a stock top loader on the fx svho already

    Dis R&D offer a Stainless grate option yet? Have not been impressed with the aluminum cast versions, the quality was lacking.

    I've asked this question before. I don't think anyone has done a back to back test.
