    idling rough after riva intake install

    04 rxp with riva intake and bov. After the install of the intake ski is idling rough. Any thoughts? Thanks. I also installed a new knock sensor pigtail and used some dielectric grease on the connections.

    Are all of the hoses connected tightly and correctly?? That would cause it to run rich which if it ran rich enough it would be rough idleing....

    double checked all the hoses and they are right and tight. If I had a bad plug could this cause the rough idle?

    When you reconnect the battery after a mod that involves air/fuel , doesn't the computer recognize the change and compensate for it?

    When I pulled my stock air intake, I also unpluged a sensor at the front of the motor and my ski did the same thing. So check all your connections.

    #3 rod was blown out the bottom of the motor. I wont have to worry about getting the water out of the motor cause it all leaked out of the gigantic hole in the case. The rod and some piston pieces were sitting in the bottom of the hull.
