Default M8 Twisted turbo Feedback?

I would much appreciate any feedback on this combination. I currently ride 06 apex turbo and love it. After a few minutes seat time on stock 09 M8 i think i may have fallen for this sled. My concerns with boosting a 2 stroke are same as everyones ,Im sure. Reliability. I would like to here first hand how twisted turbos or any turbo for that matter are fairing over , say, 1500-2500 miles. Thanx in advance. Fo.

Look in the performance/modified section and do a search for "twisted". Where are you in BC? I live just south of you in Idaho and have a Twisted M1000

I have a Boondocker M8 race gas, this is my second year on the sled and aprox 1000 miles on it, I had some trouble with the air box leaking the first year, got the air box upgrade from Boondocker and that fixed that problem.
The only other issue that I had was that I cracked the Y pipe at about 800 miles. Quite happy with the sled, I am running 12 to 14 pounds boost.

I saw the pistons come out of a Twisted M8 with 3,000 miles on it last year... Looked like new. That was a lot of heavily boosted miles, and Spectro oil. I'm running Spectro now. 600 boosted miles on my Twisted M8 and haven't had to do anything to it after initial tune and set-up. And Shain's customer service has been awesome.

I replaced reeds at 1500miles, helped a little, other than that runs great. and changed out dd bearing at 1200miles, it was on its way out.

Approaching 1500 Miles. Replaced Y pipe at about 800 miles because it sheared possibly due to the pin hole leak it had from day one as a weak point. Replaced Reeds at 1000 miles but I will never wait that long again. I will change reeds in the summer and as required throughout the winter.

Most of my riding friends have twisted kits and there haven't been any major issues. Nothing more than a mod sled or even stock for that matter.

Customer support for me has been outstanding!! I see Shain around B.C. several times through out the year helping his customers. Most of the turbo's around here are Twisted and they all flat out work.

Twisted kits are complete and leave you needing nothing. I would buy another twisted kit based on my experience. Not hard to tune and basically pull the rope and go.

I like to check my sled over after every ride some as the snow melts so I don't wait for things to go wrong on the hill. Turbo sleds are not for everyone but if you are keen on learning and don't mind getting your hands dirty doing the little things to keep you from wrenching on the snow you will love it!!

thanx guys I appreciate all of your feedback! Iposted this thread 18 or so months ago. and am just now getting feed back ...weird. I bought an m8 twisted from shain 2 summers ago(just a couple weeks after launching the thread) everything you guys said was bang f-ing on!! What a ride. Guess I should check in to snowest more often. Cheers, Forrest.
