I have been really putting a lot of thought into turbo chargers lately, but I want to really see how much difference they make, not just read about how much faster they feel.

I know my bone stock RZR-S will do 0-60mph in 16 seconds on pavement with the stock tires. How about a turbo RZR? I have seen a few acceleration videos on youtube, but most of them are on the sand or don't show the speedometer very well.

I would LOVE to see something like this video, but with a turbo RZR:


I shot that vid when my RZR was completely stock...there are no tricks, it isn't going down hill, there isn't a tail wind...that was just to show what a stock RZR-S does 0-60mph in. If one of you turbo guys (or even one of the big bore guys) could shoot something similar, I would GREATLY appreciate it.

Stock tires would be the best so nothing changes as tire height or weight goes, and preferably on flat pavement so traction and gravity don't add another variable...but honestly, I will take whatever I can get if somebody is willing to go out and take a video.

Thanks in advance

p.s.

If anybody is willing to step up to the plate, how about some specs on the RZR (year, turbo kit, boost level, tires, clutching, etc.)

I'll try to shoot one on my RZR4 as soon as I can get it back over to where I can run that fast. I could do a 0 to 40-45 or so for you in my back yard but that would be a SHORT video lol.

Sounds good, thanks.


this one has a turbo, a raised rpm limit, and a billet clutch:

wow...that thing runs! He takes off at 1:24, and right at 1:30 the camera flashes by the speedometer and it is just brushing across 60mph. So if the speedometer is still correct after their clutch work, it looks like he did 0-60 in about 6 seconds. That's impressive...a full 10 seconds quicker than mine.

I wonder what turbo kit that has?

5 pulls on my dynolicious I averaged 85 rwhp and 0-60 in 5.4 seconds. That was on a paved highway and with stock 26" bighorns. Sorry I don't have any vids of it.:pint:

the speedo pick up is on the transmission,,, so clutching wouldn't change that.
but the stock speedo is a little optimistic from what people report on gps checks.
63mph on the speedo might be more like 58mph in real life... depends on tires, air pressure, and such.

Yep...they are fun...
I've learned the hard way over the years,whether it be with ATVs,trucks,cars ect..you can drop a mint in bolt ons real quick and still not make much difference..most of the gains will be psychological because normally bolt ons include a louder exhaust..sounds faster..must be faster:rofl3: Seriously after a couple grand worth of bolt ons if most guys are dead honest they will tell you that seat of the pants wise they aren't 100% sure that it's got more power..no such problem when you bolt on a turbo kit.
FI is the way to go if you like power IMO. To build a reliable N/A engine that will compete with FI displacement to displacement would be next to,if not impossible,and to even get close would be RETARDED expensive. JMO.

"I have been really putting a lot of thought into turbo chargers lately, but I want to really see how much difference they make, not just read about how much faster they feel."

Here's a video that will illustrate the difference between an ill running Aerocharged '902 and a bone stock RzR - Both with paddles .............


I let Glen set the start and let him leave ............. Only ran to perhaps 40 MPH or so as I had "Issues" with the motor.

I've now solved all the "Issues" - She's a bit Faster now .. .. .. :rofl3:

Here is a quick vid of my Turboed RZR4 @ 9-10 psi...
Keep a couple things in mind..1) It is a RZR4 2) I am running a conservative 11.5 AFR
3) This is the very first run with this clutch set up..just changed the springs..didn't need to but I like to experiment and another member gave me the springs to try and Rayce told how much weight to run where...on the Grass it was perfect. But on the pavement I had to roll into it a little to keep it from slightly bumping the limiter out of the hole on the. I might add a little weight ,or I might not...as well as it is working off road not sure I really need to mess with it so it will be perfect for WOT launches on the pavement.
4) I was only trying to shoot a 0-60..above 60 mph I was starting to let out for a curve that was coming up.

Sorry about the quality it is from my cell,got over where I test top speed and my video camera was dead....hopefully you can gather what you need..
Click the picture..

Also I guess I should mention it has low compression pistons...8.5:1...hard to compare apples to apples unless everything is the same. Let me just say..for the set up I have it hauls the mail pretty well..I'm happy with the way it performs.

Wow...smokin' fast. That's going to be insane on the trails. I think I'd kill myself.
I tell ya I was worried about it being on/off like a switch on the trails based on my turbo experiences with cars...some set ups can be that way..one second it is bogging and the next....hold the F on...but actually it is very controllable..it's not on/off like some turbo cars are..combo of a good kit design and maybe more so the CVT tranny..it will make boost at part throttle so you don't need to go over kill with the throttle and then have it "come on" out of no where...trailability is EXCELLENT..better than stock actually IMO. The turbo allows you to clutch the machine like it should be clutched for the belt size it runs IMO. Now if you are the type to add a little liquid courage(I know you aren't just a general statement)..then yeah...don't go turbo without having your life insurance premiums paid.:ride:
