About the Riva rear intake...
Why use the oil catch can? Would'n it be better to drill a hole and mount a fitting for the oil-hose to the intake, and let the oil in to the engine? That way, when you get some water into the intake, the salt would'n stick to anything because of the slippery/oily walls. ??

Its not oil that goes through the catch can its a gasy/oil residue that gums up the SC intake system...You need to keep that out of the intake system...PLUS oil attrackes dirt..IF your taking any kind of water into your rear air intake you need to get rid of it...or figure out a way to keep the water OUT of there..Salt water is your enemy...If ya ride in Salt water you have to keep after your ski like a kid..constantly cleaning...and looking after..

I know it's not pure oil that runs trough that hose but fog of oil ... But didn't think about the clogging of the intercooler...
I'll give it a little anti-salt in the intake once in a while then.
I always wash, flush and use anti-salt after every trip The ocean around me isn't very salty. Around 2% I think

Trond, If you are running stage 3 SC you might get about 1/4 cup after a tank of gas. It can make a mess of your intake and intercooler quickly. If you are not running a high boost wheel then you should be okay going back into the intake.

No going back to the intake for me!!
I'm not running a stage 3 sc yet, but will be bought soon
I'm running a 15hp sc impeller now...

this is a good way to go if you ride in salt.. just use kano flex instead of the temp bathroom vent hose...
