    In my opinion it just depends upon what you want....
    The stock rxtx cooler works fine.
    The upgrade kit just moves it out of the way to allow for other mods, etc. I don't see any difference between the two except you have more room to work on mods with the upgrade.

    I thought that there was a flow improvement and throttle response improvement due to the shorter, straighter pipes. Plus u can go with thru hull kit to help engine breathing and sound wink wink. R88

    That's true but I wonder if it really makes a performance difference. Not positive. I have no numbers...

    I gained .5 psi with riva relocation kit and flame restrictor removed with better throtle response.
    Also gained more room, cleaner look, and can work on ski without having to remove ic pipes everytime for any work.
    Not to mention i dont like any rubber hose in my skis on intercooler plumbing or exhaust.

    I gained 40 rpm from this mod, you will need to put in the thru hull exhaust and remove OPAS at the same time.

    Its way to exensive in my opinion. Not a lot of bang for your buck. If you need to move it to the side I would just make up a bracket rather than get raped buy Riva.

    Another negative is that the I/C no longer drains naturally as in the stock position. If it were to freeze your I/C is toast.
