    rxpblast.... u'll have a LEGIT 215 HP, not an advertised 215 now that's no fun to brag about huh? lol

    according to riva charts...

    vortech SC, power cool IC, and air intake = 230 HP

    vortech and air intake = 215 hp

    air intake = 210-211 HP

    stock = 208ish HP

    Yeah you guys got to read a little closer:

    Column 1: (stock)
    208.9hp
    138.3tq
    Column 2: (Filter Installed)
    211.7hp (+2.
    139.4tq (+1.1)
    Column 3: (Filter and SC Impeller installed)
    215.3hp (+6.4)
    144.7tq (+6.4)
    Column 4: (Filter, SC Impeller and Power Cooler with Integrated BOV
    229.6hp (+20.7)
    151.4tq (13.1)

    I guess 209 hp stock isn't bad (it's certainly within parameters being only about 3% off advertised power) but it sure would be nice to see them under-rate it a little vs over-rate it a little...Because that's true hp since you know Riva has a motor dyno...there's no drivetrain loss in that figure...

    forget telling them the real HP numbers.... i just tell people that ask that it has a 110 HP motor and does 70mph they stand in dis-belief. I don't know why

    whoops. Having an intercooler would make that power gain. I didn't know "power cooler" was Intercooler. First time I've seen ANYONE call it that. Usually it is called either intercooler or aftercooler
