    Cool RIVA Waterbox

    What type of gains do you get from this waterbox? Acceleration? Top end? Any gains at all? I already have the Riva exhaust it sounds nice already but I'd like to hit that 70 mark and right now I'm at a stump for things to do.....Any suggestions?

    From looking at the mods you have listed, you need to get some fresh air into that ski. The R&D flat filter for the access cover that is under the glove box will help a lot. You can also remove the rear vent fittings and hoses that are under your seat base. These 2 mods will get more outside air into the hull of your ski. The rear vent hose removal will also help to get some of the hot air out of the hull.

    Remove the hoses and the fittings. You can buy just the flat filter or the entire cool air kit which includes filters for the relief valve and BOV. You may also want to remove your BOV and block it off.

    I guess there is little chance of water getting into those holes. I wonder if there is a flat filter like the access filter that we could cut the holes left in the ski a different shape and infill with the flat type filter. Am I over think this? Just remove um?
