  • I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

I was under the understanding that our sleds compensated for elevation with or with out boost or any other mod for that mater? thought it was just a madder of the right mapping for the mod and we were good at any elevation? was I misunderstanding it? my last 10 sleds hade carbs so I'm not very up on fuel injection ben avoiding them because of my lack of knowledge on them. help me understand if I'm wrong please!

as long as we can flash it back 2 stock everything un bolts after that we can still have warranty!!! shshshshshsh just don't tell them. if the topend pops ill pay 4 that but if theirs a defect in something I want them 2 fix that. with a turbo I am pos. they will blame all problems on it from tunnel 2 tub 2 melted wires if silber will re flash 2 stock we can still have our cake and eat it to :D!!! hope this is the case or I'm going to hold off on the turbo till warranty is up and I'm pos. their is no defects in the sled.. that will blow but that's the safe thing 2 do. don't want 2 just live with a pipe and can for three years but they do come right off for warranty. thanks 4 the reply on the pipe boston! and are u able{willing} to re flash to stock if warranty work is needed??


We reflash the ECUs back to stock at customers request. If the kit gets sold we have a reflash fee for the new owners ecu but all you have to do is cover the cost of shipping to return it to stock.

They do compensate for altitude and boost. You just need to make sure you have high enough octane for the boost pressure / altitude your operating at.

Without getting super technical, the difference is going to come down to power delivery and boost creep.

In my experience, the external wastegate hits a bit more smoothly, (more linear power delivery) and controls boost creep more effectively.

Is it night and day? Not really. But when faced with the decision, I'd go external all day long.

Most people will say 7-10 HP per pound of boost. 10 being the most common number thrown around.

wow that's BIG gains see y people say boosting is addicting!! what tuning is involved with changing the pounds of boost just the spring or is it the whole set up, mapping-clutching-injectors??

Swap the spring. That's it. Obviously, your clutching needs to match your output.

At a point, your charge temps are going to be too hot and you'll need to run an intercooler. I personally won't run more than 10 without an intercooler (though i don't even touch 10...)

The map compensates for boost as is. Injectors too are good until 10ish. (maybe past, not sure, uncharted axys territory for me)
