riva air intake
Hey guys, can a few people post pics of their riva air intakes on x-model skis or older rxp/t's.

I posted some pics of the riva rear pro intake on the RXP-X. This was with stock plumbing at the time.
Since then I relocated the intercooler and using the metal pipes instead of the hoses.

I am following Enuf's setup as we speak. I am doing the rear air and instead of keeping the WB I am going to run the Gibson.

Hi, I just recently installed the Riva air intake kit on my X. Kind of a pain, but not the worst job, just don't do it in the sun. LOL It really lets you know what the charger sounds like on and off the gas. Sorry, no pics. I like the rough water, so the front intake was really the only way to go.

Nothing is totally reliable, but the front intake with its prefilter in place offers a better chance of protection from water ingestion (due to its more hidden location) than the rear setup due to its direct path to the blower, even with its prefilter in place. This is of course just my opinion. The sound of the blower is a little louder, not obnoxiously so, but I now notice decel a lot more due to the chittery hissy sound it makes. I got a couple of pics, but no tubing shots without disassembly.
