Posted 23 April 2014 - 09:05 PM

After a great season of riding, sled abuse, engine abuse, racing, braaaping, pure punishment, I think it's time I told everyone what I think of the RKTek 827 Kit.  The RKTek 827 kit changes the REV 800 from a good sled to a great sled, you know how you just always wish you had that extra bit of power?  This kit delivers it.  It went in as he said it would (I have the complete install video series on my youtube channel), I tuned it to exactly how he said and it was an immediate pull and go upgrade, if I can do this install anyone can.

 

I'd recommend this kit as the single best performance upgrade to the 800 rev, it changes it for the better, turns it into a hungry sled just looking for challenges and always has the power to get me out of whatever I get in to.  It gobbles up just about every sled it's up against in the fields or on the lakes - and by more than a length in most circumstances.

 

I am completely impressed with the rev turned beast and probably can never go back to a stock 800 rev - ever.  I have to thank Kelsey for his advice, his knowledge and his attention to detail with this kit as it truly is a masterpiece of a kit.

 

Powermodz approved.

That's about how many miles I ran this season too. The 827 in your vids seems to torque pretty good. You running the Sherbourne 94 in your sled? Did you measure the squish when you assembled the beast?

Yes I'm running Shellbourne 94 enhancer and I tried their 94 race fuel as well.  I didn't measure the squish.  Ya it has gobs of torque, more than enough for playing in these parts.
