Riva filter vs R&D Filter
I am looking at adding a power filter to my sho and I am wondering which would be better, the Riva power filter or the R&D Power Plemun Air filter. The both look like the would do the same thing, the Riva is a complete replacement while the R&D just replaces the stock air box. Plus the R&D is $120 cheaper. What is your take and which one would you get.

Doing something like the Riva setup seems to be working well. I think because it moves the filter up and away from the hot motor. My 2 cents.

That is a good point about water getting into the engine compartment. Also it does make sense that the riva puts the filter further away from the engine. It sounds like the riva is the way to go.

Someone on here made a cheap copy of the Riva intake.
Get the FF exhaust and use one of the OEM exhaust tubes for the elbow and a K&N/Amsoil/AEM, etc.. filter with the proper dimensions

I would be the pioneer you speak of. The exhaust tubing works perfectly. It's like a two for one!

Hitman, I beleive the filter came from AutoZone. But don't quote me. I believe a K&N or a higher quality filter would be a better chose. Just using this one until I get off my a$$ and buy a K&N.
