    Riva Reduction Nozzle

    Have searched the forum, not seen an answer to this question. I recently bought a Riva Reduction nozzle setup in the GH classified section. It was brand new in box, but did not have the reverse gate holes drilled or tapped out where the gate bolts to the nozzle. Is this just the way they come or did I get one that was missed. The tech at the shop I get work done at advised that he has installed the reduction nozzles before and the holes were not missing? Any advice would be appreciated!

    On another note, just finished running all day WOT. Newly broken in GTXL with Stage 2 + from all the great tips on GH / advice and parts from Jerry. 72.2 on GPS was the top speed with steady 71.5 all day long, no heat fade. Thanks to everyone for such an informative site. Next stop, ECU and valvetrain upgrades looking to pass 75!

    The holes on each side of mine are drilled. The flat spots on the top and bottom are not drilled and don't need to be.

    For the gtx you need the rxt nozzle. The rxp nozzles are different because the reverse bucket is mounted to the trim ring.

    KiethKman,

    I am looking at my stock nozzle and all 4 holes have bolts going into them right now (steering nozzle bolts at top and bottom, reverse bucket brackets on left and right side), how would you use this without all 4 holes drilled and tapped?

    Mine is like that. Works fine, but I have a RXP. My reverse is mounted to the trim ring.

    AHA, that must be it, seller said it would fit GTX / RXT! Could I just drill and tap the holes myself or would that be a bad idea?

    I would call Skat-Track or Riva and find out before you do it.

    Thanks, you are right, would not be good to have a failure at 70 mph!! Guess I'll put back up on the classifieds and buy the right one from Jerry!
