has anyone thought of using a turbo kit on the xx? I was wondering because we see all these turbo raptors and the kits they sell for them and i've never seen or even heard of one for the xx. I want to hear some opinions about the subject and if it is possible. thanks

I remember an article in Dirtwheels where a US company built a turbo system for the Banshee. They showed up at "Competition Hill" with a stone stock Banshee + Turbo. They held there own and ended up selling 7 kits that day. Wish I could have seen that !!!!!!!!!!!!
They also built a kit for the 400ex. I wish I could remember the company's name. :confused:

For a wide open race quad... perhaps. Correct me if I'm wrong here... Doesn't the turbo need to be spun up to build boost?

Nope! there are trail turbos that are more mellow, and then there are sand turbos. these take a stock rappy to 85hp-145hp. And when I say stock I mean that they don't even have an aftermarket exhaust. Jokers Vault Racing, Lucas English Racing and Xtreme motorworks are 3 companies with very good turbos. $3500 - $5000 for a kit.

Yakahosu in Sweden is one of the manufacturers for the Rappy turbokits.. They have one XX in for a turboconversion now. I will get back when i´ll know more
Be sure to let us know...Maybe we could do a group buy to get the price down...:hey:

I dont know if that will work or not but I was hanging out with the English Racing guys this weekend at Glamis and they said it would be 3000-4000 for a turbo setup for the XX.

Lucas knows his stuff, he has even got a raptor to about 135hp with a completely stock engine with a turbo. This was just to see how much the stock motor could take, it lasted about a year of duning!
