    From the first post on this thread.

    Riva and R&D make speed control modules that will bypass the stock speed limiter. This will allow for a little more speed, but still leaves other limiters intact which will slow down your ski.

    Riva SCOM and R&D boost box can be found on this page of the forums online store

    You can add all the modifications in the world, but your ski will not go much faster until the ECU is reprogrammed, or swapped out for a stand alone ignition system such as the Riva Athena or MoTeC system.

    The Athena base maps can be downloaded from this page

    There is no flash counter.
    There is nothing that will jump out at a dealer that says the ECU is programmed.
    You can flash the ECU back to stock with the V-Tech Maptuner before bringing it into a dealer for any service work if that makes you feel better.
    A dealer can see how long an ECU's been operated at certain RPM ranges... if they see it's been operated at more than stock RPM's then this is an indicator that the ECU has been tuned. However, I have not heard of anyone having any issues with voided warranty's.

    Air Intake
    The stock intake manifolds on these skis contain a flame arestor element that is very restrictive. Your ski will not operate at it's peak performance until this restriction is removed.
    Riva makes an intake manifold upgrade kit that removes the element and comes with a billet plug that mounts to the front of the manifold which is drilled and tapped for 1/8 NPT fittings. This makes it super easy for you to install the RRFPR of which you will need and also a boost gauge or blow off valve should you choose to run one. The intake manifold upgrade can be viewed here in the store http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=889

    Question: I was reading somewhere on the site that oil and other deposits can start building up in the long run is that true?

    The stock air intake system on these skis is also very restrictive and there are big gains to be had by going with an after market air intake system. You can view the different air intake kits available for your particular ski by following this link to the online store http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...dex&cPath=18_2


    Question: Would a 4" Fizzle intake do the job?


    Intercoolers

    While the stock intercooler is perfectly suited for a stock ski, it's not adequate for a modified ski running higher than stock boost levels and higher RPM's. This is especially the case with the intercooler on the 2012 and newer skis in which Sea-Doo has reduced the size of the core by 30% over previous model years. Riva makes a Gen 3 intercooler that is a direct replacement for the OEM intercooler. It's an extremely good performing and high quality intercooler. More details can be viewed here http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=1849

    Having moded my ski (Impeller, Intake Grate, 4" Intake, Waterbox/Exhaust Combo, possibly ecu would it cause stress on the stock inter-cooler do I need to have it replaced with a performance intercooler?

    Other intercooler options, including intercooler plumbing upgrade kits can be viewed here

    Inputs are appreciated!

    Yes this is true. Most everyone runs a catch can to keep oil/vapors from entering the air intake tract

    No undue stress on the stock intercooler from these mods, but you will get the best performance by upgrading your stock intercooler to the Gen 3

    Thanks Hulk!

    Just wanted to clarify the question below.


    I read about the catch can but I was referring to the "RIVA Intake Manifold Upgrade Kit for GTX-SC and all 255/260 HP Skis" http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=889

    I was reading a thread on the forum that backfire is evenly dissipated within if you keep the mesh inside and if removed that deposits can start to build up inside. I am not sure if it's been proven but I don't want to run into any issues down the road.



    Inputs appreciated!

    I have not heard of a single issue ever from removing this mesh. You still have an external intercooler which acts as a flame arrestor.
