What is the reason they choose to use fuel enhancer over say AV gas w/ pump gas or races/pump gas? Also is 100 octane the number that the turbos sleds like to see?

When the group of 5 go out west they go for 5 to 7 days of riding and five turbo sleds in the trailer, they found It was more convenient to haul 5 gallons of the Shellbourne Fuel Enhancer instead of 55 gallon barrels in the trailer. They really like the performance with the Shellbourne Fuel Enhancer.

i have to agree that fuel enhancer is more convenient to carry around than race gas or av gas there are a couple companies that make good ones . i have seen one called race gas that also apparently works well .. i will likely be ordering some fuel enhancer to carry around with me as well as mixing up a few cans of av gas and pump gas depending on how much boost i plan on running .. i was thinking 3 to 5 psi at 0 to 4000 ft would be alli would get but hearing you have guys running 7 with no issues has me thinking maybe ill go there lol .. only time will tell

Well i was bored last night so i went out to the shop to clean the sled up a bit. When i gave the front control arm a shake and found the bolts were all loose ... worried that the bolt holes are now worn from riding like this i droped it off at the dealer today to have it checked out . While i was there i picked up my new turbo reeds :)

i got the sled out for a little test and tune today in the 5 inches of snow that i have here ... definitely have some work to do with this fuel control box sled was not running very good at all . figgered out you definitely have to double up on the exhaust springs .. that is not a recommendation but a necessity and i also found out that i did not put in enough pin weight at 20 grams .. as it will hit the rev limiter almost instantly with a stab of the throttle i tried adjusting my clickers but wasn't enough adjustment to keep it from over revving.  so my current plan is just to give it a quick once over for loose connections add some pin weight and try it again .. so far im pleased with how everything mechanically is working it starts runs idles just fin and i think with a few more tries it should start to wake up but only time will tell what i'm in for ..

im @ clicker 1 with the 20.4 grams of pin 5psi boost @ like 200' elevation and no over rev issues as of yet. Likely will need to add more, but i was completely fine @3psi last year.  when i ran 7psi last year with this weight it over revved extremely fast like you are experiencing

i put 3 extra springs on the y pipe for a total of 7 and 2 extra by the turbo for a total of 4 . so 11 in total .. 1 short of doubling the springs but it should be fine .. this kit came with reeds but the guy i bought it from ( used kit ) must have left them on his sled .. the ski doo racing ones were very reasonably priced .. cheaper than stock reeds i do believe
