Electric solenoid.I think it acts kinda like the doo factory turbo, bypasses the turbo at low rpm to have stock like throttle response. I’d like to know how it works though.
were you able to determine how much testing they have done?So I stopped by force turbos today to get the run down on the vcs system from Bryce. First I’ll say very cool system. Very similar to the factory doo turbo in the way it works. There is an intake valve and exhaust valve that open and close to bypass the turbo. On the exhaust side when the valve is closed, all the exhaust gets diverted through the exhaust turbine. When off throttle and rpm drops the valve opens and part of exhaust is diverted out the pipe, bypassing the turbo. Some of the exhaust still goes through the turbo to maintain turbine spin speed. I didn’t ask what rpm the valves open and close. They say if you ride their 850 Polaris with vcs turbo at 3.5lbs and then jump on a factory doo 850 turbo the bottom end and throttle response is the same and very very strong. Completely changes how you ride on and off the throttle in the tight tree stuff compared to a standard Polaris turbo without vcs. I for one love the doo factory turbo motor, just can’t stand riding that chassis. So if I can get my Polaris (or cat) to run like a factory doo turbo it would be huge. Would love to throw a leg over one and see for myself
I would think all the aftermarket sled turbo manufacturers see the end coming. With how well the doo factory turbo runs and Polaris and cat within a year of their own factory turbos, the market for aftermarket turbos is pretty much over. For 90% of guys buying turbos a factory turbo will suit them very well. The other 10% who want more can get that with a $500 tune.
As far as the force turbo kit quality goes, it is as good as you can get.
