Best CDI / FI system/ for '08 700?

I recently bought a new '08 700 and was wondering if I could get some advice on which fuel management/ computer system to purchase. I would like to get a little more top speed / hp from my bone stock rhino without breaking the bank or blowing the engine. Thanks for the advice in advance.

the MSD setup works well also. I am not convinced that the preloaded maps in any of these are safe though. so be careful.

MSD all the way. I tried 4 or 5 dynateks before I asked for my money back. MSD has ben flawless for me, no problems at all.

Cdi

I went thru a couple Dynatek units before I got one that worked but still was never happy.
Currently running the VDI and am pleased with it.

how does the performance of the vdi compare to the msd for a rhino with a clutch kit? is the vdi worth the extra money? how about programming updates for each?

The VDI works great for people that are only going to do minor modifications to there motor. The MSD is better if you are planning more major mods to your motor in the future.

I think there are more vendors/motor builders that have maps for MSD than the VDI.

I disagree.

The MSD is a piggyback unit. It intercepts the output signals from the factory ECU and modifies them. It is simple, and works pretty well.

The VDI is a complete ECU, it is not a piggyback system. There are way more tuning options and capability with the VDI, but most probably don't need that many options and would get confused. I would chosse this system for a more heavily modified engine, as it has more tunability.

Both the VDI and the MSD are good products in my opinion.
