  • Welcome to the Snowest Swapmeet section. This is the correct place to be if you're looking to buy or sell something on the Snowest Forums.

    To help you in crafting the most successful advertisement possible, keep in mind that adding these key points to your post may very well help in cutting down repeated questions or confusion about your item for sale and hopefully help you to get your item sold more quickly.

    - If you are using the SW swap meet to list an item, then list the item description here. Don't link it to another website. (failure to do this will result in automatic thread deletion)

    - Adding PICTURES to your post either through the built-in "Attachment Manager" directly from your computer, or by using the [/I] code from photobucket. www.photobucket.com

    - Adding a [B]PRICE[/B] so people know what you're looking to get for your item is very helpful.

    - Adding [B]YOUR LOCATION[/B] either in the post, or into your profile using the "User CP" options at the top of the page. If people don't know where you are, they won't know if your item is worth the drive to get it in the first place.

    - Lastly, be sure to add a [B]DETAILED DESCRIPTION[/B] to your post. If you've got something you want to sell, don't keep it a secret! The best way to get something sold is to share everything you can about it in the opening post of the ad.

    --[B][U]AFTER[/U][/B] the sale: We prefer NOT to delete the thread of a sold item so future users can comparison shop. Please indicate the item is sold in the first or last post. PM a moderator to edit the thread title to include "--SOLD".


    [B]BUYERS[/B]: [B][U]DON'T INSULT THE SELLER BY ASKING WHAT THE BOTTOM DOLLAR IS.[/U][/B] You should see a price listed...there it is. If you want to get down to it, make an offer.


    If you don't frequent the forums, then be sure to add another method of contact to increase the likelihood of a possible buyer contacting you. Though Snowest is a community of fellow snowmobilers, we are not responsible for any information that you post so be sure that anything you do post is something you feel comfortable having out there.

    With these tips in mind, you should now be able to post an effective advertisement for your; part, sled, vehicle, or trailer.

    Good luck and thanks for being a SnoWest Forum Member!

Retiring from the sport after 40+ great years

I have two 156 M8s with electronic reverse.

Turbo M8: OVS style turbo package with some of my own drivability/reliability mods: Tial 2871 - 4" Intake housing w/fresh CHRA Single throttle body system w 4 injectors Intercooler, Fueling programmed for 12-17+ lbs of boost ( running at 13 on av gas when I parked it).
Bottom end of cylinders porting for turbo use, combo of porting, av gas, and single throttle body makes for very responsive bottom end power. Big mag weights set at 88 grams, secondary running 40-46. It has a Diamond S hood, Lightweight Boss seat, M10 air ride suspension with a Timbersled 38" front suspension. It sports a 156 2.5 camo track. There is a spare used Easyride suspension sitting on the shelf for it. It has a bit nicer big bump ride but wheelies much more than the M10. Lots more than I can remember.

M8: The other has a stock 09 motor in it, so that the turbo stuff would all swap over if needed. The chassis has been upgraded to all newer cat float suspension. Nothing fancy about this one, just a clean well setup sled. Both have the back of tunnel modded for deep snow and cross fire coolers to keep em reliable.

Enclosed Trailer: old school Wells Cargo Style enclosed two place drive in drive out trailer. It is 12" long... yeah I know they didn't make such an animal.. long story, but I'll tell it to a serious buyer. The sleds both fit in it, with room to spare. It is a little long in the tooth, but it works just fine, tows great!

Sled Deck: Silver Lake expandable sled deck. It was ordered an extra 3" taller to accommodate tall gas cans and other gear under neath it. It's in great shape and has always been stored on a rack when not on the truck.

Also included are tons of parts such as: Two spare lightweight Boss seats, Extra Diamond drives, Clutches, Springs, Weights, Belts new and used, Cylinders, pistons, spare turbo with bad center section, skis, cable scratchers, specialized tools etc etc etc. We never had much dealer representation here, so I stocked up on parts as I could afford and find them. There are probably a number of parts for previous sleds that I owned. Going off of my experience with all my old mod sleds I was in the habit of picking up spare parts (cylinders, clutches, etc) when I broke down. This little turbo blew my mind. It never broke... just kept on ticking. Don't get me wrong, I broke fasteners, reeds, stuff like that, but never lost a motor or diamond drive.

Also included is snow gear. I have lots of bibs and coats that I would love to see someone use. I know it's a personal thing, but if you want any if it, it will be included. Some Klim, Cat, etc etc etc.

Please, be mindful, this or any turbo is for a savvy, mechanically inclined individual. It also takes a pretty high degree of skill level to ride it to it's potential. That said, it has good manners while it's on the trail and I have allowed many people to take it for a spin... no lack of smiles and big eyes when it was brought back.

You ask why? I injured an eye in 2011 and I don't have the depth perception it takes to play where I used to. Trails are OK, but just not my thing. Now, I'm getting old, fat, and lazy too.

I am going to sell all as a package. I want $9,000 for everything listed above (plus stuff I've forgot about too) I am not willing to separate at this time.
