    You can get an ebay one for 120.00 shipped. Probably the same $$ as getting yours fixed.

    Good luck!

    I agree, but I want to use the smaller Riva unit. More space.

    Austin, there is a smaller size XS style IC that is real close to the size of the Riva too, look at www.siliconeintakes.com

    As far as leaks, what I did with my XS is hook up air to both of the water fittings. I went to Harbor Freight and the local hardware store and got fittings that allowed me hook air directly from the compressor to the 3/4" water lines with no chance of leaks. One line had a quick connector to the air compressor, the other had a plug on the end. I dunked the whole IC in a wheel barrow filled with water, turned on the air compressor and let it build up to 50 lbs pressure then turned it off. I watched the IC for awhile, no air bubbles whatsoever.

    I was just gonna say "someone is using one"
    How's the performance over the OEM IC?
    I might go that route if my XS leaks.

    Yea, I like that, SO why mess with my Leaky $800 piece of junk anyway.
    $120 or so I can get this.

    HOW does it perform?
