    SuperCharger Imp Install hours away

    LOL ....... If all goes well after my sons T ball game tomm morn I will be installing the S/C Imp .. My gut feeling .. its gonna be a waste of 4 bills plus, but i am a "glass 1/2 empty" guy in life anyway .. i have yet to hear anyone say omg it is so worth it .... I hope i am wrong but we shall see ...
    this will put me at stage 1 and 1/2 .lol

    Riva cold air kit
    impros prop ..................................8100 all day
    Riva top loader grate
    Free flow xhaust
    blocked opas
    S/C imp

    One may ask why I am so pessimistic I guess that would be becasue w/o the impellar I still am not seeing 71 mph , I have seen 70.9 before the intake grate now i see 70.6 with the intake grate so unless my ski was doing 66 mph which it wasnt .. it was doing 68 in pure stock then I would have to say its all been a waste for the most part and advertised parts have not lived up to what they claim .. except for impros prop ... I have picked up an honest 2 mphand all of it has been with the prop so unless this impellar brings everything together i am going to be real upset ...

    How do you figure? Your still a pump wedge and Solas prop away from a stage 1.

    By the way, I was very happy with my Impros stocker re-pitch as well.

    Chris, you are such a pesimist! You will see a gain with the SC impeller just as you saw a gain in acceleration with all your other mods. If you are looking to see a gain in top speed with the SC impeller you will be disappointed. You will see very little if any. The gain is in the acceleration.

    I do not want a solas prop as it does not have the top end of an impros and i already tested the wedge and have long sold that i didnt like it at all .. you do not need a solas to make it an official stage 1 .lmao .. and my free flow blocked opas and riva s/c impellar more then make up for a wedge so therefore i am at a staged 1.5 .. maybe not in RIVAS eyes ...

    Well, officially the Riva Stage 1 kit includes a wedge and Solas impeller.

    It's okay to call your ski stage whatever, it's your ski!

    Im about a stage 20 by now

    jerry I am learning very fast that people bullshit about there speeds and acceleration gains me and the webmaster were talking about this earlier .. for example when people say o i installed the riva cold air kit and a prop and my boat comes out of the water 38 feet now and my arms are soar from riding 2 times ..or im doing 71 mph with a impros prop .... my problem was i was believing people to much ... as you know yourself people tend to bullshit a lil much these days with whats going on ...

    Thats funny because i don't ever hear anyone bragging that they achieved out of the ordinary results with the Riva Stage 1. The results are always less than advertised.

    I think we should have an oversight committee and form guidelines and come up with the minimal components that constitute a "Level." Riva, PPG, RR, and now Hulkanator Level 1.
