    Intercooler toss up

    Having a hard time deciding between the Fizzle and the Riva Gen 3 Coolers. I have a ‘18 GP stage one plus. I like the look of the Riva set up on the port side. But I see on a few other threads Fizzle seems to get most the votes. Would like to hear from guys that have been running the 3rd gen Riva. I know it hasn’t been out long, but someone has to have some good data or experience with it by now.



    thanks
    Salt

    I bought the riva gen 3 I/C, just got it installed last week. went in pretty easy and mounts pretty solid. not real crazy about the long intake hose going to the TB from the I/C but other than that it's real nice

    Fizzle all the way. There’s a reason fizzle gets all the points. It’s a proven product that does not need several versions.

    Thank you for the replies! Looks pretty good on the left side but almost stuffed up front.

    Yeah @gprdanny you're right about that, good shit sells itself.

    the fizzle I/C is a good I/C and if you go with it you wont b sorry. a friend of mine has one in his fx and the ski runs very good...the only thing i didnt like is the way it mounted. its a moves around some so he took a thick peace of rubber and stuff it between the motor mount and I/C to keep it from moving. he was worried it woud hit the hull if he didn't. that's why I went the with the riva gen 3 it mounts to the air box bracket and is more stable than the fizzle, also the riva is easy to take in and out and to tighten the house clamps to the I/C and TB plenty of room to get ur hands in. the good point with the fizzle is you have shorter I/C hoses going to the S/C and TB where the rive S/C hose is longer going to the TB. as far as performance between the two I guess the verdict is still out since the riva gen 3 is new

    Two things I don’t like about the riva.
    1) long silicone pipe to throttle body
    2) it’s not powder coated

    I just installed my second Fizzle, for my GP1800. My first is 6 yrs old on my 09 FZS and has been trouble free, that's why I went with Fizzle again. Nice large size fittings for cooling, quality throughout. I have also purchased a Riva Gen 3 for my son's GP as he wanted to go to Riva so we could do our own competitive comparisons but it is not installed yet. One thought about the Riva was both inlet and outlet on the I/C have to make hard 90 degree turns sideways, where the Fizzle is straight in top and sweeping out the length of the bottom. Riva's bottom hose has a downturn before 90ing up into the throttle body, more bends than I think is best. Probably no big deal, just my thinking.
