anyone use a riva stage 1 p-x in the sea??
as above im torn between going stage 1 or adding work grate air filter sponsons and re-blockoffs.
the bad exchange rate and crippling import tax is stopping me from just getting the lot.
im intrested in how the stage 1 acts in the sea?i expect its more a lake set-up?and id probably be quicker going with my set-up in sea?
or do i get stage 1 minus grate and add the work grate?and also buy sponsons?and get re block-offs another time?
will wedge and nozzle etc make any diffrence in the heavy chop?

In my humble opinion if your looking for bang for the buck,
yes get a grate, opinions vary on which one, but all aftermarket grates for the X have about 2-3 mph top end difference. Stock is going to be the best hookup, its an F'n plow.
get yourself a home air intake,
and find someone to tweak your prop or do it yourself and thats only if you find your ski on the rev limiter.
thats it, if your in conditions in the ocean like over here in the northeast, you will never go WOT for a speed run anyways. You just want good accel and hookup.

You should consider the following:
If you run a front filter, extend it forward about 12 inches to get away from the leaky Ventalation tubes and RXP-X seat. The SC will be less likely to suck salt water.
Get a seat cover from riva.
Eliminate the wedge as IMO it keeps the P out of the water more than in when running in rough stuff.

ok cheers mate.was thinking on a riva seat cover.
jerry doubted the wedge would work in my favour either.
is an aftermarket intake not alot more inclined to ingest water than stock?id rather be safe than sorry alot of riding is solo or another ski at most miles from shoreline.
