    Pitting on R&D intake grate?

    Just bought this intake grate used from a buddy of mine, should i be worried about the pitting on it? Is this normal?

    Very normal...! Lots of casting imperfections in R&D products. Whether it be intake grates, ride plates, intake manifolds, etc etc etc...

    Is this the best option for the SVHO's? MPH wise?

    I haven't seen anything on his "testing" that I thought was going to happen a week or so ago...

    Have had a couple things come up work wise.. After getting back from the Middle East I thought I was going to have time but something else came up. I am actually going to PM Jim this weekend and see if I can drop off the ski

    My R&D Intake grate almost killed me last season when it broke off and caused the ski to pretty much stop and nose dive at 80mph... cost me 14k to go to the damn hospital. I got the Riva now and let me tell ya when you hold both next to each other after one breaking I promise you will choose the Riva, its so heavy and strong compared to the R&D. Stay away if you wanna live but good luck to anyone with an R&D grate. Very scary. Click image for larger version.
