    They both eliminate the restrictive screen in the intake from the factory, but the R&D kit also includes a spacer to install in the intercooler to free up a few more CFM. If you plan on upgrading the intercooler (and scraping the old one like I am) at any point, just go with the RIVA kit which does not include an intercooler spacer. Just the smooth bellow to remove the restrictive screen.

    The stock screen looks like this.
