    Riva or R&D free flow exhaust?

    I see in the online store both Riva and R&D have a free flow exhaust for the X series, whats the difference and which is better? I noticed R&D's has 2 pieces where Rivas is only one.

    most people use the Free flow pipe from riva...but the better piece is the thru hull but other mods like ic relocation kit and OPAS blockoff is needed...i ordered the riva free flow J pipe installng it in a week or so.

    Yea I know, and I have RE block off's just having a hard time justifying the cost of the IC relocation kit. I have a Riva for my P-X but I was going to get one for my T-X and was wondering which way to go.

    Get the Riva rear exit or save your money and get the Riva reso... bypass.

    I had the R/D exhaust and for the exact same thing and I didn't see the point. Sure it cleared up some room but it was quite a bit more than the Riva bypass....

    Are you on the Columbia....in PDX??? We need to go riding if so..!!!!

    I plan on doing the rear, my stage 2 and 3 RXPs are, just trying to save some of the dough thats gotten a little tighter here on the X boat. Wheres PDX? I'm in NCW up about the middle, north of Wenatchee/Chelan. So you think the Riva bypass is etter than R&D's. Thanks will order one of those until, the funds are there for the relocation kit, I have the rear exhausts from my other boats when I went with GH shorty H2O boxes
