WHAT FUEL DO I USE WITH THE SYSTEM?
- Initial tank following turbo system install: 110 race fuel or equivalent
- Boost levels from 3-4lbs: 91 Octane with no more than 10% ethanol
- Boost levels from 5-7lbs: Mix of 50% 91 Octane (no more than 10% ethanol) with 50% 110 race fuel or equivalent
- Boost levels from 7lbs and up: 110 race fuel or equivalent
- Anticipate higher octane mixtures required for low elevation systems (from sea level to 3,000 feet)
Depending on boost levels, quality of fuel available, and other factors, the rider can consider experimenting with increased pump fuel ratios as long as you use extreme caution, and look for warning signs. Indicators and warning signs to look for to ensure your fuel mixture is in an acceptable range for proper engine operation can be: Engine detonation, loss of power, above normal engine temperatures, loose or broken spark plugs cause from detonation and general performance problems.
WILL THE INSTALLATION OF A TURBO SYSTEM VOID MY MANUFACTURE WARRANTY?
It is typical of manufactures to void the warranty on their equipment when high-performance products are installed.
ARE SNOWMOBILES WITH YOUR TURBO SYSTEMS RELIABLE?
With proper care and use our systems have proven to provide reliability well within industry standards. With high-performance products, there should be an expectation of an overall increase in care and maintenance.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF AN AFR GAUGE?
Recommended to verify that air-fuel ratio (AFR) is in proper range to protect against serious engine damage. Under hard acceleration or at full boost we would like to see the AFR reading around 11.5. If your system is operating over 12.5 it is too lean and will require immediate attention. Remember these are full boost reference numbers.

WILL I BE ABLE TO USE MY PUMP GAS TURBO TO RUN HIGHER BOOST LEVELS?
Yes, our systems do not differ between the pump gas (lower boost) and race gas (higher boost) turbos. We will either need to add a boost tee or change the wastegate spring. And use a higher octane fuel to support higher boost applications.
