I just read on snowest that snowtech had a dyno article with the polaris 900 vs. the cat 900. It said the polaris made 152.5 hp @ 7600. Did anyone read this? Was this a 2006? We do not have the latest issue of snowtech in our area yet.

The Pol peaked at 152.5 hp, and the Cat peaked at 152.8 hp.
The Pol made 150+ hp across a 400 RPM range.
The Cat made 150 hp+ across a 300 RPM range.
The Cat made 5 ft./lbs. more torque.
It's certainly close between the two, especially when you figure only half of an engine's power makes it to the track.

I think a bit more HP makes it to the ground than half...
At any rate, the Polaris and the Cat are so close the differences are almost not worth reporting... A guy on a Polaris who skips lunch will take a guy on the Cat, it's THAT close.

The biggest problem we had with hp last year eith our fusions was the rpm at which it made hp was a mystery,some dynos reported 7100 rpms and Starting lines at 7600 which is what polaris stated it should run at,but did they?? Most did only out of the gate,than once it shifted out would drop off sometimes all the way down to 7000 when mine ran at 7500 or so,it would rip,but it never held that rpm,now maybe poo has there clutching and motor mounts straighten out,if so they will truck!!
