This has been covered before but we still get a lot of questions about whether or not our system contains a spark arrester in the exhaust. The answer is no. Why? Because the Aerocharger is the only turbo available for the RZR that uses 100% of the exhaust gases and uses them to achieve peak efficiency at any RPM range. This is also how we achieve boost much more instantaneously compared to all the other off-the-shelf turbos.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture's Forest Service guide to Spark Arresters for Off Highway Vehicles only turbos which use 100% of the exhaust gases do not need spark arresters. This includes some industrial type vehicles as well. Taken straight from the manual:

MCX use a spark arrester.

most turbos have a wastegate in them to control boost pressure.
I think Aerocharger uses adjustable vanes?

A wastegate would let some exhaust gases bypass the turbo vanes so that it doesn't meet the 100% qualification that they are talking about.

Correct?

That right, I forget we let some gas out thru wastegates. You are to smart, Cliff. LOL

yes, thats why wastegate have to tie back into the exhaust pipe before the muffler and spark arrestor.
