    Riva hood kit vs Riva rear air?

    On my 04 RXP I have the hood kit ducted directly to the tube of my powerfilter, would I see any benefit going to the rear air setup? Has anyone used both? I have a rudecharger, riva ecu, t-stst kit, green water box and about everything else you can think of.

    Almost one full pound of boost when going with the Riva rear air is the biggest advantage + the sound of the SC whine is beautiful.
    If your going to run the Riva hood directly into Power filter, remove filter and connect it right to tube. when tube is connected right to filter it actually restricts air.

    Alex,
    That is the way it it set up and you can definitely hear the supercharger loud and clear, probably more so than wth the rear air kit...just wondering if it is worth it at this point to switch to the rear air or run them both!

    I was wanting to do the same thing. But you really can't run them both. If you use the Riva rear air you have to put the adapter on the super charger, I think this switches it from 3 to 4" diameter. Looks like you have take supercharger out to press it on.

    Question

    Guys if you get a 1 pound of boost gain from using the rear air intake..............would that be better than changing SC wheel?

    I already have a way figured out!
