Please everyone go to the instructions page on our site first. Most questions can be answered in your owner's guide or troubleshooting manual. This can be found following this link.
I'm considering buying a used kit, how does this work?
- Answer: We encourage you to read this document first!
Question: How does the fuel management work on your turbo kits?
- Answer: We reflash your sled's existing ECU. This can be done by purchasing a reflash cable for your sled and doing it from home, taking your sled to an authorized reflash center or sending us the ECU via mail.
Question: Do I need any special tools to install the kit?
- Answer: With the exception of specific clutch tools (to swap springs, helix and weights) no special tools are needed to install the kit. Most can do it in the comfort of their own garage in 3-5 hours. Even the guy who built this web site was able to install his own kit, and he is no sled mechanic.
Question: Does a turbo effect reliability?
- Answer: So long as you properly maintain your sled, our kits have proven very reliable. In fact, we even setup a fleet of rental sleds every year in West Yellowstone. These sleds often see 5,000+ miles without a hiccup. As with any sled, proper care is key, as is paying attention to boost level, octane and RPM.
Question: I want to run pump gas, can I?
- Answer: That all depends. We have customers running pump gas from sea level all the way to 13,000 feet on all models. We test with pump gas and often run it in our test sleds. However, all pump gas is not made equal. Pump gas breaks down at a very fast rate, and often higher octane pump gas at lesser traffic'd gas stations is stale by sledding standards. However, if you are getting good quality pump gas that is ethanol free and running boost that is in check with your elevation (see your owners manual) you can possibly run it! We would prefer all customers run a bit of 100LL as a cautionary measure, but again, this isn't always required.
Question: My map is wrong, can you reflash it?
- Answer: 99.9% of the time, the map is not the issue with the runability of a kit. The only exception would be a situation where we found a hiccup under some extreme or unique operating environment. When this happens, we roll out a new map free of charge. Its also very rare, only occurring once in the history of this technology. Usually when a customer is having a problem it boils down to octane (not enough), clutching (something not working), belt life, a boost leak or a TPS issue. Please contact us or your local dealer and we'll get it figured out!
Question: How much boost can I run?
- Answer: This is the most common question from a prospective customer, and the least common question from a customer who owns a kit. Why is that? Because most quickly realize a clean running sled at even a "measly" 5psi in the mountains is a handful. Our kits reliably run up to 10psi in the mountains, slightly less at sea level, but 99% of our customers never go past 7 in the mountains and 5 at lower elevation. The sled simply becomes too much to handle this side of straight up drag racing.
Question: Do I need an intercooler?
- Answer: No, probably not, but we offer them. The intercooler is designed around our riders who don't like to stop and often do big long pulls WFO. If you hammer up the trail and dive into deep snow, only resting when your gas starts to run low, the intercooler is a great option to keep heat soak at bay. If you let your sled cool down intermittently, you probably don't need it, especially at "reasonable" boost levels (5-7psi in the mountains). We built the intercooler for the 2% of our customer base who would rather only stop when the day is done, which can create a lot of heat with no chance for escape!
