    Riva Intake Extension?

    I installed my Riva Intake on my RXP last weekend and from the second I installed it I've been wondering why didn't they just and another section of pipe in which will extend the filter back up to the original intake spot at the front of the fuel tank???

    This wouldn't cause any sort restriction since it will be essentially a straight line shot forwards and would certainly provide cooler air than just simply next to the engine.

    I tried extending it up there, but it did not seem to help. The extra length must increase the restriction to offset the benefit of a little cooler air. I now have a homemade 4" all the way to the front which works alot better.

    Alright another question is:
    I have the Riva Intake, Soon have the Blow Off Valve, and Powerpipe exhaust, and a worx intake along with Riva Pro Series OPAS blockoffs. Next thing is gunna be a prop. Who's got the best out there for this setup? what's the difference between a 3 and 4 blade? I know stock is 4 blade.

    You attach a catch can to the end of the hose. You can buy one for $132 or make one for $20.

    Sure

    There's a thread on it somewhere, you should be able to find it with a search for 'custom catch can' 'homemade catch can' or 'home depot catch can' or something related to those phrases.

    Or...you can cut the appropriate sized hole into the side of the 4" hose, in the approximate location as stock and continue on.
