    The ride plate you have is probably the r&d which is this one.

    The intake grate you have is probably the riva which is this one.

    Your blow off valve should be in front of the engine between the supercharger and intercooler.

    If it's an aftermarket plate, it is the R&D. Riva's is not available yet...see my signature. Did the seller give you the stock plate?...If not, you might want to inquire with him if he still has it. The R&D will give you better handling & speed in flat water, but the OEM will keep the ski hooked up in rough water much better than the R&D. It only takes 3 min to swap them out depending on the type of riding you will be doing.
