Do you have any detailed info on the new 2011+ RZR 800 air to water intercooled kit? Such as what's included and where the intercooler is placed, ect.

Thanks

The 2011+ RZR 800 Air to water system is virtually the same as the '08-'10 setup.

It will have an AEM air filter between the seats just like the old kits due to the intercooler being in the way of the Donaldson filter featured in the non-intercooled 2011.

It uses a different throttle body adapter than the old kits.

The electronics and fuel injector are different due to Polaris changing the ECU.

Have you had any issues with the 2011+ stock pistons and the ring gap? I think they boosted the compression a little in 2011?

If I'm not mistaken they turned all of the engines into S engines and raised the rev limiter.

It hasn't been a major issue but there have been a couple people who broke ring lands. In all of the cases that I can think of, the RZR was almost brand new and the engines weren't broke in yet.

How many hours/miles would you recommend before installing one then?

I always recommend putting at least two tanks of fuel through the RZR and driving at a wide range of RPMs. Don't make drastic changes in throttle position, if possible slowly ramp up the RPMS and don't hold it wide open for extended times. Also keep a close eye on the water temp, new engines tend to be tight and easily overheat.

What kind of gains are you seeing over the regular kit you sell? Or is this more to prevent detonation? Can that be prevented with the methanol kit? I have no interest in running race gas.

I think your turbo is the best option with the self contained lube. Seeing as the new Can Am is also 64" wide like the XP, I guess a turbo is the only option out there for those that need a narrower platform and want more power. Should keep you guys busy.

With the Air to water intercooler you are roughly making about 10%-15% more power than the non-intercooled setup.

It does help prevent detonation by reducing the air temps, it also gives you denser air which means more power.

A water-methanol injection system can be added and we have been selling this since we introduced our 2011+ kits. The system works very well.
