It looks like boondocker has an etec turbo in the works. I guess reid hedlund, jared sessions and dan adams had a boondocker demo thing going on and some riders on the ride said there was an etec turbo. I have'nt got much more info than that.

I don't think the rev was turboed. I was talking to reid hedlund(boondocker canada) today and he said the etec they had on the ride was working good and it should be ready by next season. He said they have 3 years into turbo devolopment for the e-tech fueling system. He said besides a few little issues, the main one being the reeds the system is coming along good. He expects when kits hit the snow the should be up to par in terms of reliability and performance of the poo and cat.

I was on that ride, and got to demo all of these sleds. The new cat, the pro, and the etec.

The etec pulled insanely hard on top. It was definitely my favorite out of all of them in that regard. The bottom end definitely needs some work though. It wasnt that crisp at all on the bottom end, and even mid range. They gave full disclaimer that they really didnt have that much time into tuning it though. I think if you could clean up the bottom end a bit, it would be the sled to have.

i can tell you, boondocker will not clean up bottom and mid throttle simply because their box can't(too long to explane).dividing the throttle body in three load(low-mid-high like dobec fuel crap) is not permitting a good tune it is that simple.....every little change in temp,kpa,snow condition cannot be taken in account by those 60$ (manufacturing price!!!) small electronic board. i am earing this song and reading these lines for well over 5 years now and nothing as changed and nothing will change until we all move on programmable ecus....with good tuner/engineers company.

I was there and saw the new Boondocker etec run and I would say they are very close to getting it running perfect.

So how come their so called $60.00 works on the Cat and the Poo?
Maybe because their efi has been around for a few years and they have had time too get them dialed in.

I am positive that they will have them running good before the up coming season.

So we have been hearing from you for quite a while now about your product, yet you still have nothing for us too see.
Then you come on here pulling down other peoples product that are out there running with good tuners and engineers and a actual product.

You should probally put up some type of proof of what you have and quit bashing the ones that actually have a product.:boxing::face-icon-small-con:face-icon-small-fro

sorry if you got me wrong Smokindave.....as you already know my english is far from perfect(but probably better than your french ;) ) and it may be why you think i am bashing but i am far from bashing boondocker and his team....they do a great job on engineering turbo kit and they spend lots of energy developing new stuff, maybe too fast(i don't like to be a test dummie). the problem Smonkindave is you and me do not have the same defenition on "getting it working perfect" that's all(i don't want to elaborate again on this....) i have own more than 20 sleds with powderlites,mcx,boondocker,push,impulse ect. and tried every piggyback available and when i say it is far from perfection believe me it is! but enough on that . it will be a promising year this year for efi and not only me but other company are launching"real plug and play programmable ecu" no wire cutting and oem caliber(actualy more advanced than oem).IF you show up at haydays you will be able to touch and feel those ecus and you are more than welcome to show up and i will show you the product.
again sorry if it sounded like bashing but it wasn't(and far from it).
BTW all the industry will benefit from the advancement on the electronic department.....all the turbo kit builder will be very happy with what's coming All of them. and just for your reference i am far from being the only one developing those ecu but it takes a long time to come up with a board that will suit all needs(powersports and not only sleds)a and free of glitches and bugs. another guy out of the country will show up with an impressive lineup of ecu for sleds so not only me!!!

Thats funny....you didn't have much problem explaining yourself in your pm.
Apparently Supermods or "Super Morons" as you put it are allowed to have opinions but not post them...lol...suck it up princess:face-icon-small-dis:face-icon-small-dis:face-icon-small-con:boxing:

Hahaha, Yes this will be interesting to see, hopefully they get the so called "injection problems" worked out.

The unicorn is only located here with sasquatch looking over Fordy & Gravy, the ambiguously gay duo.

after installing the other two etec turbos out their on the market i have a few concerns

both other turbos have a great looking install and look, my concern comes to if boondocker resolved the hessitaion off the start, sounds like a electrical hessitaion, but it sucks, and should be addressed

discussing this problem with boondocker they tell me they are using a tps to help resove this issue, but i do not understand how that will help, they also mention they have another change with the raves that help in low end throttle response, it all sounds good, but just like the other brands out their, they told me as well they had no issues

the last concern i have is the reeds, stock seamed to work well but lasted less than one weekend of riding, this is not aceptable... i was told by boondocker, they built their own reeds, and they have been tested, but once again, talk can be cheap

they mentioned their fuel controller is years ahead of the dopec controller used on the other two kits

i wanted to buy a few sets of reeds for the other turbos i have and was a quick no, they never even had enought for their own kits,,,lol

so has anybody other than the boondocker boys run this kit, and have they taken care of these concerns

Hopefully they get these etecs figured out.
Every one was praising the trasks as the end all be all turbo kit for ski doo's. ETEC being fuel injected and trask being the god of turbo kits because he can build a kit for a harley. lol...
How did those work out?
Hopefully the boondocker kit works great. I would have to ride one before I would buy one though. Every one says their kit is great. They make these claims before they have even got them runing correctly. I know boondocker supposubly has alot of time on them, but I would still have to ride it to blieve it.

Fred.
Have you tried runing doubled up stock reeds? is boysen not makeing turbo reeds for the etec? If they are have you tried them yet?
Did you ever get the trask turbo kit runing decent? What is trask going to do for fuel control this year? they started useing aerocharger (dobeck) control boxes last year because they could not get a fuel control box to work. Is aerocharger going to provide control boxes to trask this year too? Does the aerocharger control box work? Sounds like the boost it control box may be working on the turbo etecs. Going to try one?
Thank you for your honest feedback on the turbo etecs.

I ran the trask kit last year on my etec. There was serious fueling issues with the aerocharger control box. My sled is the one neil has been testing the boost it controller on and it sounds like it is working sweet. Been out of town working haven't had a chance to ride it yet. Ran the boyesen turbo reeds last season and they held up so only time will tell if they keep working. This year sounds like a good one for the turbo etec.

i have turbo boyseen reeds in one trask kit, i also have doubled the reeds in my areo kit, both seam to work good the little time we had them on since we replaced them, but not many hrs in total, they will need more time to give a fair test, i feel we lost some bottom end

no i have never seen the trask work good yet, its been a fueling nightmare, and ran so lean we took out the mag side piston

as for fueling, trask has no clue, and are using what ever they could find from others to do their fueling, maybe why it runs like it is, as for this year i have no clue on the fueling, and not much has been said bye the guys selling them

i have another trask complete kit sitting in the box, and will not go on till we see one of their kits running good, and me driving it....enought said

You should check with neil from boost it Fred. I have been following his etec turbo thread on snow and mud and he has been playing with a trask kit with his boost it system and apparently it is working pretty good. He claimed it worked better than his pro turbo. If you check out sled golf on youtube you will see some footage of his turbo pro and it is really impressive. So if the etech does indeed work better all I have to say is WOW!

I had the very first E-Tech Turbo 600 from boondocker and I know that they have got the best R&D around and cant wait for my 800. I also learned my fair share from owning a E tech turbo and can say that they will be amazing sleds.
