Rotax swap versus Arctic Cat 1000

I have been doing a lot of research and thinking about a Rotax swamp on my Rhino but also considering the Cat 1000. If what I read is correct the Cat 1000 has 68RWHP stock so why spend the time and effort on a swap with a Rotax, am I missing something, does the Cat suck or have any major known problems?

Do the Rotax swap, the Rhino is a way better platform to build

Do you guys have more info, on why the Rhino platform is better? Is this just a personal experience or are there some real technical reasons? also, price for the swap versus selling my rhino and starting over on a CAT 1000 seems cheaper. I have long travel already on the rhino.

if you already have LT on your rhino, then the rotax swap will be very good indeed.

if you do decide to get a Cat, leave the motor all stock and do a cage and suspension.

wait for the 2011 Prowler 1000 to come out in another month and then decide!
