    Green Wheel or X Charger??

    Just trying to see which one is a better buy. Does the X charger offer alot more performance over a green wheel? They seem to boost almost the same PSI at the same rpm's, the X does boost a little more, but is it worth the extra $600? This is for a currently stock 2006 RXP. Thanx guys.

    The Xcharger has a larger diameter, so it moves more air. There is more to a SC than just how much boost it makes.

    In fact, the X-charger is so powerful, you can't just drop it in and go like the Green wheel; you'd need to add something for fuel management like a RRFPR. Early indications are that the X-charger is a good bit more powerful than even Riva's Stage 3 SC.

    You need to manage your fuel with the Green charger too if you're running an external IC. Either with 42# injectors or the RRFPR.

    If you go with the x charger you will still have you stock charger to sell. The x is upgradable also and comes with tit coated metal washers.

    Its not all about boost numbers, volume of air is very important. The X charger will out perform the green charger.

    Price, is the main diff. The Greenwheel inbetween Riva stage 2 and stage 3 charge prefonamnce wise, while the X charger is inbetween the Stage 3 and a Rude charger.

    Other benefits of the X is the improved oiling system over the 07 and prior chargers

    X-charger all the way, but you do have to spend extra money to make the X-charger safe to run!!, you can just bolt up the Green Charger and go!
