Research Research Research!

The first question I put in front of my self in this research battle is two-stroke vs. four.  It is definitely hard on my head because we do not have a Yamy dealer near my town.  I would like to go four stroke, but it isn’t overly practical.  BUT, that is where most of my research is based.  I’m pretty stoked on the new Nytro for 2010 so lets start with that.  
The three kits I’ve done most of my research on are Impulse Turbo, MCXpress Turbo, and Mountain Performance Superchargers.  All have their advantages, and all on paper (or screen) sounds amazing, but what I want to know is what is the easiest to work with?
Beyond the install how easy are they to dial in?  I am by no way new to the snowmobile world, but turbos and superchargers are new for me.  I plan on riding one next year and I’m trying to gather as much info as possible now.
If you have stories about yours, I’d love to read it and put it as a news item if you are interested.

Impulse: well over 300 hp with optional kits.
MCXpress: 240hp or 270hp (upgrade)
MPI: stage 1 = 220hp (11 lbs) / stage 3 = (well over 300hp)

Articles on each kit coming soon!

Theres footage of the powderlite turbo 1200 up on youtube climbing the monster chute. Very impressive! I would post a link to the video but unfortunatly I’m computer retarded. Just search powderlite turbo 1200 and you’ll find it for sure.

Aaron Bernasconi says:

OH, and I think we do have footy that should be up today or tomorrow!

Aaron Bernasconi says:

It wasn’t the MCXpress kit we did the interview with. It was a turbo kit done by Powder Lite kit, and it was very impressive!

Is there going to be a video of this doo in action from the shootout? Was it the specialty sled one that you guys had an interview with in the fall?

Aaron Bernasconi says:

I’m a HUGE fan of the 1200 doo on boost. HUGE FAN! Seeing that thing go in Revy was a big eye opener… wow.

I also have been interested in the turbo sleds. Not to the point where I want one yet, but I just think its pretty retarded on how much HP you can make on a pump gas. more than my old VW golf thats for sure. I think if your going to go the turbo route, you have to purchase a four stroke. way more efficent, don’t nessically have to run race fuel, alititude differance is better, and way more efficent. maybe with the ski doo 1200 there will be more tuned up turbos. Turbos are rad. after riding with a dude who rocks a nytro yamy, they are ridiculous! Stupid pwerful, scary, and I think a turbo will humble you really quilk, or kill yah. hahah jk….Jimbo out….Never Trust an Aussie
