It is a bad design, you only need to remove the two wires on the sled side. Before I figured it out I cut my buddies wires when we removed his engine. I used environmental splices putting it back together, but that was a nightmare as well. All you do is remove the small rubber plugs then push the wire out of the connector plug with a small flat tip. They never should have been designed like that.

Well, the time has come, time to build a Sled Head Racing 880 Ptec XM!

 

First a little intro on the sled. It started life as a prototype 13 XM 154. Boondockers ended up with it and built their XM turbo kit with it. Here's what the sled looked like when I got it. Got to love the little helpers in the garage all the time!

From there it sat in a shop for a few years till I was able to get ahold of it. I rode it for a year and a half decided I wanted to build an 880 XM, and possibly buy a G4 next fall and turbo it. Here's what the 13 looked like this season. I added an EZ-Ryde skid, 162x15x3" Camso track, Itek billet goodies, Air Frame boards, a home made carbon fiber hood, and a killer wrap from AFX!

I've had an 880 in my 07, so I know the capabilities of the motor, and would love to have the same thing in my XM.  Here's a pic of my 07 with an SHR 880

Why the Ptec instead of Etec? The Ptec's put out a little more power and they're much simpler and easier to work on as well. 

 

I was hoping to put the motor out of the 07 into the 13. Some of the 07 cases had the 08+ casting, some of them didn't. Unfortunately mine didn't so I sold the 880 out of the 07 and picked up a donor sled today. It's an 08 154 with a blown motor. The cylinder is in pretty rough shape, but after a closer look I think it's still reusable. It looks cracked in the picture, but after examining it a little it looks like just the nickasil is coming off, hopefully BJ can reuse it still.

I'd love to hear any tips or suggestions from anyone along the way, I'm always happy to learn things from anyone who has advice to give! Depending on how my other sled part out's go, I'm hoping to have this built rather quickly and get it on the snow sometime in late June if the snow holds out that long. We've had a great year and it's still snowing up high, so I think it's a real possibility!

So you got rid of the turbo? I thought you were in love with it, since you hardly mentioned your 880 after buying it, what happened?


Doo it while you can, you can always golf when you dead! ;)

Trippy that may be the trick but a 950 lindermann motor would be a f'in rocket to take you to the moon.

I did love the turbo, I didn't like frying coils and being stranded on the mountain in terrible spots, twice :headbang. My season was cut in half this year. My 880 hasn't left me stranded yet and can almost do everything the turbo did, except it was in an older chassis. 

 

With that said, that motor in a newer chassis will be a blast. Plus I'll need a back up sled for next season as well. I'll either end up with SP 850 or another XM. If I end up with an XM and I still haven't sold the turbo kit, I'm sure it'll end up on the XM. If I end up with an 850, it might end up turbo'd as well. We'll see what happens. One of each would be ideal, hopefully I can swing it.

Nothing sucks worse than getting stranded in a real bad spot, and then watching it snow for half the season when you're sled isn't running while you are stuck at home shoveling snow!! Been there a few times myself, if you play hard and ride hard I think it's inevitable! Fine line between power and reliability, a few tweaks either way can be disastrous. I love my 872, never had anything better but it's time to upgrade the rest of the sled. I will be stoked if my new 850 has the same torque as my 872, and the four year warranty is going give me the best of both worlds with any luck, power and reliability! :)

If you're serious about sledding I think you have to have one!
