Default Silber Turbo OR Sidekick Turbo (AXYS)

Hi,

I am considering purchasing a turbo on my axys. I am only considering the base kit, non-intercooled. They are both the same price give or take. I like the thought of the boondocker tunnel dump but also don't love the thought of drilling through my tunnel. I also like how Silber has an external wastegate.

Anyone have valuable/experienced insight?

Thank you!

I work for Silber so keep that in mind.

Both kits work well. Anyone who says otherwise is semi-blind. In our group we have one Boondocker kit and two Silber kits. All have put smiles on our faces.

The Silber kit gives you more adjustability (you can pick how much boost you want to run via wastegate springs), more potential top end (you can run 10+ psi if you'd like without any additional parts), and a cleaner install.

Boondocker is cool in that it adjusts boost as you change elevation giving you the same net output (in theory) at all elevations.

As far as performance my pump gas silber kit (5psi at 8500 feet) was very close in all out performance as the side kick. Only notable difference is how the power hits. Silber was far smoother. Sidekick had more of a "hit".

Only drastic difference besides wastegate setup and boost controller is in oil use between the two kits. Silber's kit reflashes the oil map to compensate for additional load at elevation. Sounds like no big deal until you realize the stock ECU is programmed to put out less oil as you move up in elevation and the load theoretically goes down. (less air, less fuel, less load). This may not be a big deal in the short term but long term it could prove to be a massive differentiating factor. Time will tell!

Performance wise, both kick ***!

We will be at Grand Lake this weekend if you want to come ride a Silber. PM me for details. We will also have kits with us and can install if your interested.

I would encourage you to ride both and see what you think.

Have you looked into MTNTK? Another great option. About the same price, IMHO you get a better bang for your buck. Also now the same price as the Silber and Sidekick.

I am VERY pleased with my Silber Axys kit. Has been pull the rope and go. Cleaner kit IMHO with the option to adjust boost levels to where you might what them.

I have had both.. granted neither on an axys... but I have had a couple of boonie kits on cat and a silber kit on a pro.. I have been throughly impressed with the silber kit to this point. Great power.. running about 7 psi at 10k on straight pump fuel with a splash of oil in each tank... I think the silber kit has run just as well up top and honestly cleaner on the bottom... not enough miles and time yet to make a full determination, but so far I would say the silber reflash is the real deal.

I been running the sidekick for 600 miles from 5000ft to 10000ft
Kit works awesome, clutching is spot on at all elevations. Can't imagine another kit working any better. Lots of good reviews bout the silber as well. I think boondocker will provide better costumer service if ever needed.

Wow... the prices are coming down into the "Reasonable" level now.


The MTNTK looks like a nice package... I've always been impressed with the quality of their builds....And now... at $4000 with the BW-8258 EFR, water/air intercooler, Bullydog, injectors ... impressive.
