    Keeping the OPAS and without drill a hole

    Hi. I would like to install something like that on a new GTX Limited 2007:


    RIVA Power Filter Kit
    RIVA RXT Pro-Series Supercharger Housing & Impeller
    RIVA RXT Power Cooler Kit w/Pro-Series Blow-off Valve
    RIVA RXT Pro-Series Fuel Injector Kit (#42)
    Solas Concord Impeller SRX-CD-13/19R
    RIVA RXT Heavy-duty Supercharger Clutch Washers


    BUT I would like to KEEP the OPAS and would NOT want to DRILL A HOLE in the hull for warranty reasons.


    So, this way I can not use the Riva Rear Exhaust.


    The option would be the Riva Free Flow Kit but it has an ANOYING NOISE RESONANCE at about 3000 rpm.


    Does anybody has any suggestion for this exhaust problem?


    Does anybody has any plans to release a kit something like the new SeaDoos 2008 that have an external Intercoller and keeps the stock pipe?


    Any advice would be very appreciatted.


    Thanks

    Have you spoken with your dealer? the warranty varies from dealer to dealer and he may be ok with your mods.

    also you wont need the Fuel injectors if you dont upgrade the ECU.

    your best choice for speed would be just adding a Rude super Charger and the right prop leaving everything factory...most important leaving the factory air intake in which makes it safe.

    If the exhaust exits out the OEM exit hole (in pump cavity) you WILL have the annoying resonance when the resonator is removed...there really is no way around it.

    You can locate the thru-hull a little higher to clear the OPAS internally, it has been done...


    The new 08's have not been released yet, but there are kits that will be available soon after from aftermarket manufactures...

    Meirvin, the warranty I think would be ok if I talk with my dealer. The main reason is that I would like to keep the OPAS.

    About the injectors #42, Jerry has said that if we use RIVA RXT Pro-Series Supercharger Housing & Impeller we need to use them even with stock ECU .

    About the Rude Supercharger, it is expensive and will not give all the power it has with the stock parts you said. On the other hand, I am afraid of having it because it needs Fuel controller, maps... Too much complicated.

    Why do you want to keep the OPAS? It doesn't do much.

    I would like to keep the OPAS for 2 reasons:

    1) My wife sometimes rides teh jet and opas is good to her

    2) The lake where I often go has a river that is very interesting going there. And to ride doing the curves the opas also helps.
