Rotax ?

I just bought a rotax conversion from jay at desert dog and am wanting to do a turbo. Just wondering if anyone has done one yet and if so what kind? I am looking for some serious dune power, wanting to smoke the buddys rzr. Was thinking turbo and nos or nxs kit for eliminating turbo lag. I
Any help would be great

Oh yeah i did the thru shaft and dalton clutch and got the ron woods exhaust

Sounds like it should be pretty Fast already. What does your buddy have in his RZR that you fell you need more power?



Also Welcome to the site!! There are a few Rotax owners here already and should be able to point you in the right direction.

Thanks to all the hard work from Todd at www.151fab.com for building my rhino!

All he did so far is a tunner intake and exhaust with shocks. Ive done the lone star mts should have done the longer kit but thought i would still be driving it in the woods more but i dont. I havent put the motor in yet just thought i would do it all now instead of rearanging everything again right after its done.

A guy showed up at Pismo with a Turbo and iner-cooler on a Rzr. really nice set up. Max Powers might know the shop that did it. they do Rhinos also I think. Turbo might know where also it was up by Pismo. The rzr was fast like R1 fast or faster.

Hey if you want to do the turbo you can talk to jay about that to. We turboed my two seater 800 Rotax and weve gained a lot of experience from it. We were a little overboard on safety of fuel delivery and it was holding it back, I was only able to use 1/4 throttle and it pulled like crazy and I havent messed with it much since I got the new injectors. It should be insanely fast now. And it should dune way easier with out worry of a melt down. Call jay and ask him about it,Hes real knowledgeable with this stuff Hes been doing it for years..

I have been hearing a bunch of good things about Jay and Dersertdog! Sounds like a solid shop!

the stock rotax will already smoke a rzr, you really should drive it before looking for more power, it already has enough power to climb just about any dune and it will get you in trouble real fast if your not carefull
a turbo only brings down your reliability. Take it on a trip or two, then look at more power options if your not happy, but I think you'll be surprised.
