Skidoo XP 600 E-Tec | Mountain Sledder

With the help of Al Bush of Valley Chainsaw in Pemberton and Gerry Dusessoy of BRP, I took delivery of my ’09 Ski Doo XP 600 E-Tec last week.   I just drove down to Colorado to see the kids and do a little riding.  The snow is pretty good here with 4-5 feet on the ground and snow forecasted all week…

I rode the 600 E-Tec the last two days, expecting it to be way underpowered at 10,000′ in CO but was stoked that it wasn’t that far off the power of the 800’s.  This sled is going to be sick!  I just put Fox Evol X’s on the front and the Fox Air Ride suspension on the rear Friday and it’s Awesome!  I can go full speed through the whooped out trail here with no worries….I also put RSI bars, riser and grips on it.  Next week it will get Slydog skis and soon will be the Boondocker Turbo!  Boondocker’s Performance is going to install a pump gas turbo on this bad boy pumping out around 190HP at elevation!!!  It’s going to be reliable and with stock rideability.  I can’t wait to get the turbo installed…Who wouldn’t want a 420lb sled with 190 HP on pump gas?   I  went back and forth between the 1200 E-Tec 4-stroke and the 600 and decided to go with the lighter more flickable of the two.  Don’t get me wrong, the 1200 would be a sick sled too but probably wouldn’t be as fun for big airs/drops or technical boondocking.  Boondockers told me that a turboed 1200 already hit over 400hp on the dyno – that is insane!

Yah that would be sick to see a 180 in a 600 thats awesome

Still 180 hp in a 600 is SICK! Can’t wait to see that little girl go!

Chris Brown says:

It will stay a 146. I’ll post some video of the stock 600 cruising through the tight tree in deep pow…It might be more like 180hp but it will be sick!

Kevin says:

Are you going to be stretching it out too or just leaving the 146 on it? But getting almost 200 horse out of a 600 on pump gas is amazing!
