    Welcome
    Since your not looking at moding now, then sit back and wait for others to get the numbers, and in the mean time ride like you stole it.
    congrats and good luck!!!

    send your rideplate to jim. the service is offered through the online store. and if you aren't up to that task, atleast fill the rideplate holes with epoxy. both mods are good for a decent amount (.5-3mph depending on which one or a combination).

    cut the intake grate down to almost stock, so leave the inside scoop but cut the outside ones, fill ride plate holes with synthetic string then cloth tape and then epoxy so the head of the bolt doesnt get stuffed. then go 4" air intake, preferably one that sits under the steering column. if still got some money after that, its time for a solas prop. 15/22r

    IMO, don't cut your intake grate...

    1st mod should be remove the entire air intake system from the SC FORWARD, and replace it with a 4" Kanaflex with metal mesh filter...OH, and the R&D SC adapter in Jerry's store....Combine that with the Riva grate once available, and you'll have a great starting point...

    +1. Wait for the Riva grate and have a piece of mind that the hydrodynamics of the pump are working properly.
