    Confused by question.. Riva rear intake and Riva IC W/ BOV have nothing to do with each other.. You can run the Riva IC w/ BOV with either the Riva rear intake or the Power filter.

    I ran the Riva stage III including IC w/ BOV with power filter long before the Rear intake was a glimmer in Riva's eye... maybe something changed????

    YES!! Big difference in power.. I'd look around a little at other options for IC, Riva has a hard line warantee policy. For that kind of money, you should have a little piece of mind. I personally paid twice for the same IC because the vortec IC that Riva sells sux in salt water and after prolonged use in salt water it will leak. Check for a post by "Danny" that list all the different IC's and there bench flow test. He really did some great work on this topic, his outcomes showed that there are some good alternatives to the Riva/Vortec IC for much cheaper.

    With the Riva IC? I think you're confusing the rear intake with Riva rear exhaust kit, which per your sig you already have???

    +1. James is a great guy! And his kit is awesome too. Great bang for the buck. I can't speak about it's performance against the Riva IC because I've never tried the Riva, but I gained 2-3mph and great acceleration throughout the RPM range with Fizzle's kit.
