    Holeshot and low end are 100% my favorite part of the ski!

    I see we are all on the same page haha. I thought top speed was what you were after. I was running an 85.5mm nozzle and loved the hole shot but that's as far as you can bore the 300 nozzle. I'm in the process of deleting my ibr on my 2014 to try and kill hole shot with the 88mm rxp 255 nozzle 161mm 3 blade Skat and a lucky 13 cone for cc racing.

    There are a lot of threads and some some very in depth testing done side by side with the intake setups. As far as least restricted and BEST performance by a good bit the Riva rear won... BUT ...water can get into that intake making it iffy. If your going straight in drag style is think you'd be fine but me, I like to spin, jump turn hard and get wet I KNOW I'd have issues. Some say they've had no issue and some had to rebuild engines. I think the 2nd place went to the 4" kanaflex routed up to the front Wich did much better than stock but still fell short of the Riva rear intake. To me I cannot afford to loose an engine.... So the 4 inch works just fine. I sure wish the water injestion issue could be solved on the rear air though that would be perfect

    It sounds bad ass! You can really hear the supercharger with the intake and throttle response gets better. I've always done the intake with a bunch of other mods at the same time so I can't really comment on what exactly my results were from just the air intake. I can however, recommend the front air over the rear air.. I nearly caused an international incident in the Detroit river because of a rear air set up.. Only a couple more months till summer !
