    is this RIVA supercharger a good buy ?

    I found this new supercharger blade on a local classified board.

    Just want to check with you guys if this sounds right
    I want to get my jet to go faster and i figured this would be a starting point.

    This is the description in the ad

    "This is a Riva supercharger upgrade will increase boost from 7lbs to 12 without any other changes huge performance increase I have heard of as much as 5mph improvement I bought a new one with the big supercharger in it"



    Asking price 250$

    Worth the effort and cash ??

    Thanks everyone

    You'll have to ask what the name of the supercharger upgrade is. If I'm not mistaken, every Riva upgrade even close to 12 psi requires either a front housing swap or a spacer, which is normally included with the blade.

    Not trying to step on any toes here, and I may be wrong, but that actually looks like the original Vortec/Riva Gen 1 impeller. If so, it produces about an extra pound of boost, at best.

    ok so bottom line, dont get it ?

    seller was saying no other mods are needed to install this impeller, no injector upgrade or anything.

    Effective,

    What is the Ckit you are selling ? Asking price on it ? Please send me a PM

    Thanks again guys, surely saved me a lot of cash on this one

    All the best,
    LG
