Yeah, Im sure somebody, sometime will get it, maybe. But like you said, probally be 4k, or who knows...But if was that concerned with Performance, id got a Can-am Maverick or somthing like that. For what i use my Viking, for its just fine the way it is. Would i like more power? sure, but im not going to spend anymore money to get it.

Well said ^^

Big difference between a "want" and a "need." I have no need!

I would like to see one runnin with a turbo just to see what it does. I would think they would have to put a shimmed heas gasket with the compression it has.

I think they only run low boost to avoid needing to drop the compression. Yeah it would be interesting to see how much difference it makes.

I saw the video earlier on the other form didn't seem like much of an improvement over stock whatsoever actually look slower than a stock vehicle

I replaced the exhaust with the same size pipe coming out of the head and a generator muffler located across the back runs smoother, and cut the noise at least 25%
a good bit of power boost. Now if I can solve the problem with the red hot exhaust by adding a fuel programmer and gauges this is one all around sport and work horse machine.

^^^^what he said^^^^

I think they mentioned it was going to be in the $3,500ish range too! I'm sure someone will try this...but I have to believe this is going to be a very VERY limited market.
