Thread: R-Rated intake
06-23-2007, 06:18 PM #1
Took my first ride today after installing the R-Rated intake and filters on the bov's. Conditions: 84, average humidity, 2-2.5 ft chop. The lake I ride on is crowded on the weekends so rarely if ever do I get a chance to ride on smooth water.
66.8 and about 60-80 more rpm. I had not gotten the rpms lately in the heat like I did in the spring. My high reading today on the tach was 7880. My highest rpms in the spring were about 7820. One of the only times i ran in smooth water, it ran 67.2 and was still pulling before I had to let off. I can feel an increase in throttle response and midrange. The intake helped in the same areas as the waterbox and exhaust mods did. It gives you a different sound. You can hear the supercharger much more than before.

Good job Beagle, are you using the air suction blockoffs?

One more thing, I have not been able to tell how much top end all the mods have given because of different temps and water conditions from my spring speed (stock) of 67.6 I will say that with the exhaust and intake mods, this thing pulls much harder up to top speed. The mods along with the wedge make it jump out of the hole quicker than before. I have $484.00 in the exhaust U pipe, water box mod, intake, pump wedge and filters for the bov's. I have an additional $90.00 in valve cover block offs and billet aluminum exhaust outlet. And..... $16.48 for pirate stickers We shall see, but the way it pulls now, with some smoother water I see mine going at least 68 in the heat. When it cools off in the Fall, who knows?
I also bought 2 flow rite vents from R-Rated. I am gonna wait untill I get a few more runs in before I install those and do the ram air mod.

Are the prices you mentioned to include your newly installed air intake?

Yes it includes the intake. Rob - I have not done anything to the ride plate. I'm going to wait and see what shakes out in that area.
A lot of people have the Jim's rideplate mod and most have had good results. But with the cost of his mod and the shipping involved both ways, you could buy a new Riva rideplate. If they ever get it ready to sell, I'll be watching to see how it performs.

Zactly. Way steep for grinding bosses and a little cut on the bottom - unless it takes over an hour each, which i doubt. I'm sure it's cool, but i'm with beagle on this one.

Does Riva offer upgrades to its plate when more speed can be found in thier ride plate?, Jim does, If he comes up with more speed from his plate, he will upgrade it for $60.00.
