    How long to install Riva Intercooler, SC Impeller, R Exhaust

    I have all the parts but did not want to mess with it. Called Riva and they said it will take them 9 hours or more to install the 3 components which yields to $800++ in labor. I will probably do it myself. Any locals that I might call for help? I am in Miramar Fl.
    Thanks
    Hector

    Thats ridiculous. I could do the same job in 2-3 hours.
    Hopefully you can find someone close by that can help you.

    Did you get the tools neccessary to do the SC impeller. If so you can handle the job yourself,if not you will need those and something to cut the hole in the hull for the exhaust.Here is a list of the impeller tools.
    backup wrench Part #529035949
    support plate Part #529035947
    torx socket set part #RS09531

    The impeller service plate and shaft tool are not neccesary, all you have to have is a 1" spanner wrench ( I got a cheap one at Harbor Freight tools for $2) a torx socket set, torque wrench and a tube of Permatex Ultra Black silicone for the sc housing and exhaust tip and a holesaw for the exhaust tip. The install is not difficult at all, I did mine by myself, took my time and probably spent around five hours doing it. I could probably do one now in three or four hours. One thing to watch for if you do it yourself is the wire that goes to the oil level sender, its mounted under the thottle body and pulls out of the plug very easy, it happened to me when lifting the intake to pull out the stock intercooler. Hope this helps!

    You can get by without the service plate but use a 1 inch spanner wrench don't try to hold a backup on the nut that holds the clutch washers. You will need the #8 torx socket a 1\4 inch wrench will fit the one you can't get the socket on. Guys on here will help you through it if you run into problems which you probably will but you can do this job.
