    cant make up my mind

    like it says im not sure. I want an intake for my 06 rxt. But im just not sure if i should buy something already done up like riva 3inch intake or make my own 4 inch? I ride in the river/inlet/ocean. so yes wave jumping and all. what would be safe but yet the absolute most power?

    If there is a link already can someone point me in the right direction or just send me pics, how to, or advice?

    Im really trying to get some extra power put in for the summer.

    Me personally i would go with the 4 inch,,,BUT with the 4 inch youll need to construct it yourself..they dont make a 4 inch kit..If your looking for simplisity then go with the Riva 3 inch..The 4 inch will give you more RPM over the 3 inch by far..Another option is the rear intake,BUT with wave jumping and surf riding i wouldnt recommend it for there is potential for water injestion..

    Some of us use a 90 degree, 4 inch to 3 inch reduser sold by silicone intakes..Then conect that to 4 inch Kana Flex up to the filter element.

    whats the average size filter?

    I use a 6 inch cone filter from Pep Boys.

    also i should put a sock on it too huh?

    Its not necessary..My wifes ski has her filter up by the battery with no sock and has had zero problems..

    lol. One of those links ought to work.

    No sock on mine either...works fine. Some will say that sock is restrictive.
