    Riva Stage II riders. . .

    Well Im about to get my income tax back. . . so time to start spending again.

    My goal is to run consistant mid 70's in summer heat, so I will be upgrading to an external intercooler w/ spray, S/C Impeller, mabye 3-blade prop and pump, and Im kinda iffy about the RR ECU. I dont really plan on doing much more than that for this summer.

    My question is; for you Riva Stage II guys how do you compare to stock RXP's? With my current setup(basically Riva StageI) I pull away from stockers but not like I want to. . .

    or any other ideas that will get me to my goal without going internal or stand-alone.

    Jay

    The Riva Stage 2 is a great kit for those that want relatively cheap gains. Depending on your location, altitude, heat etc., you will see 73-75 mph in the heat of summer with very nice acceleration. There are some Riva stage 2 kits running 76-77, but I think those are running in ideal conditions. It's a nice package for the rec rider who just wants to beat all but the most highly modded skis on their lake.

    You will be able to pull away from stockers like you want to. The speed is deceptive, your rear view mirrors will come in handy.

    The Riva stage 2 kit will still leave your ski extremely reliable. Plastic wear rings are always in issue. Even with stock skis. The best thing to do is replace the wear ring with a stainless one.
