Awesome. Great way to get some first hand riding and running experiences of 2 great sleds and motors.
Wish we had one of each in our group.

The article dies put to rest those who question the reliability of a hastily thrown together turbo package as the details unfold they have been working on this set up for several years and have hopefully worked out all the kinks.

The thing I find hilarious is those people that are complaining about the price. They still sell the viper and the Apex if you want a run of the mill sled for great trail bashing but if you want to step up the game a bit this is very cheap.

Take that from a guy who has 2 turbo vipers and 1 blown motor under his belt. If you paid anywhere near sticker for a new 15 viper and added a stage 1 MPI kit you had over $20,000 in the sled after gearing, clutching. gauges, fuel pumps and other goodies. and if you were going over 6 #'s of boost a head shim and arp studs would set you back almost another $1000.00 if you had a mechanic in a shop do it.

This motor is built for boost and can be pushed much further with no changes to compression or internals to keep it together.

I actually got mine for $14,056 out the door and that included a belt and hat. If I would have waited till last week I could have gotten it out the door for 13,700 at another deal who just called me.
