My winter project
My rxt is going in for a little makeover this winter and would like some comments or thoughts on what we're thinking (well about 90% sure)of doing:
ss washers, yup I know 79 hours and counting
green wheel (since we're in there already)
riva intercooler, can anyone tell me where you can find an XS, any thoughts on performance difference?
42lb injectors, I assuming the stock ecu can handle this, yes/no??
riva thru hull with that shorty waterbox, love that sound!!! but wondering about the melting issues with riva, I understand the box isn't an exact fit so I'm also interested in finding the appropriate plumbing material (that won't melt) ???
Thermostat, if both perform about the same, then riva, any thoughts are again appreciated???
obviously, block offs are needed, i was thinking the riva standard ones, but now im seeing a few others that are bit more money??? What are the performance differences between the high and low end block offs?
Impeller, at this point, we're thinking of the one that comes with the riva S2 kit
Venturi nozzle, unless someone knows of 81 mm nozzle thats cheaper and better???
Tools: anything special besides the sc tool?
The ski already has all components of the riva s1 installed, which handles so much better now, wow.
Thanks guys, much appreciated. I see the results on the board and think this set up will come pretty close to 75, any guess guys??

Go with the Stage III SC. I have the green wheel. It is great, prolly the best bang for the buck, but it's just not enough for an RXT. I am only at 68 mph with a green wheel. However, I do still have the stock IC and stock air intake. And, I am hitting 8100+ rpm, so I know I can prolly break 70 with a rear intake and external IC. But, I think the only way to really make an RXT behave is massive HP.
Oh, and the skegs kick butt too. It turns so hard now that I can throw myself off every time if I push it hard enough. Without the skegs I could nearly turn it all the way at full speed and full throttle as long as I was leaning to the outside. It would just do a sweeping, large radius drifting turn. Now, anything above 40 mph requires careful application of full throttle steering if I plan on staying on the ski.

twins sound like fun...
But i was thinking more a long the lines of the the solas 15/19 or the 15/20 and then the green wheel... Rereading it probably comes off a little misleading.
Question, is it possible to run a riva s3 sc impeller in the stock sc housing and can i run the 42lb injectors, with XS intercooler, stock ecu with that combo and not have it too lean and no exhaust manifold issues???
Also why is there such a huge price difference between the XS and the riva intercoolers, a can understand a little difference but a thousand is crazy. thanks guys

just to clarify, you're running a sc3 wheel, xs ic, 42lb inj, on the stock ecu, with no exhaust or lean ?A/F issues??? thanks again, this is great info

the S3 sc'er comes with a new front housing too, just so you know. you still use the rest of the stock charger, however.
