Default Best ETEC Re-builder?

Mechanics come and go from Skidoo dealers all the time so I'm wondering who the best shop or mechanic is to rebuild an 800 ETEC in a 2015 in the Rocky Mountain Region? The motor has only 1500mi. and I'm pretty sure I have lost the bottom end in it. I'm going to pull the motor myself and tear it down, then make a decision what to do. Repair and keep it, trade it for a 2019, or sell it out right and buy a new one in the fall.

I would be looking for a dealer who sells Trygstad motor sports products in your region.

rocky mountain region is pretty vague but star valley skidoo would be worth a phone call.

If it was me.. I’d buy a re-man short block from Skidoo. Give your old one back as a core. New one has brand new parts, comes with 1 year warranty.

I would skip the rebuild with improvement, Reman from Ski Doo would be my choice, There are good dealers out there that can help you from start to finish.
