I have been saving for a turbo for some time. I'm putting my son through dental school so it has been slow going.

I don't need a big bad turbo, just a low boost application will work.


Some of the featuers I want are a good air filter system thats easy to service, an intercooler because I have seen many overheat without one. I also use my bed a lot so an under bed model is very appealing. I don't want really loud exhaust either.

Your opinions are welcomed, especially the "Low Boost" owners.

I have followed your posts on this project. You did a nice job. I don't know of any E85 in this area so I think an intercooler is a good plan for me.

Aerocharger looks well thought out.. I was looking at pro charger, but now am set on aerocharger Take a look on youtube they have install videos so you can see how it comes together.

When I buy mine for my XP, It will not be anything from MCX. I like the looks of the siber, thats probably going to be my choice.

Silber turbos has a great kit. You can run pump/race gas or E85 and it s all pretty much bolt on. They include everything needed and have great customer service and its only $3800.00 dollars.

I can only share what I own which is the MCX.

Great customer service...like outstanding

Good product that works very well for me.

You need to upgrade air intake to a Donaldson so keep in mind that will cost you a few more $$. I think they come standard with a pod filter (uni). I did not use it...

Couple things Im not 100 percent on board with:

1) Intercooler piping run right over the spark plug areas, so if you have to change them its a PITA. I havent had to, but if I did Id have to deal with moving those IC pipes. Not terible but take some additional time to do a simple plug change.

2) If you want to remove the bed to work on the engine, which shouldn't be that often, you have to remove the I.C. piping because it runs through the front side. Im sure other setups with any kind of piping, intake or otherwise has the same issue.

3) Pretty loud. The older I get, the less I want to hear loud pipes. Its not rediculous but its got some bark. Im sure all turbo's do.

On a good note:

The air to air I.C. really works well in that spot. I dont have aa incoming/outgoing I.C. temp gauge but I can tell you with my hand it drops intake temp ALOT and thats its main purpose. I think it works really well in that spot actually.

I don't have mine yet, but I'm leaning here as well. The engineering looks great and everything hidden is a plus. Air to water, great filter, A/F gauge comes with the kit.

I am in the same boat as the rest of you and looking at my options. I ran an Aerocharger in the past on my 800 and absolutely loved it. I ran the water to air at 12 psi and it was a beast. I thought the XP 4 might be fast enough for me but I am really missing the boost. I should have the cash next month. Hmmm so many decisions. I love that their are more and more options. It is better for all of us.

I wouldn't disregard the Silber kit, best bang for your buck Imo. Intercooler aren't always needed especially if the turbo is sized right. I have his kit on my pro rmk sled and it ran without hiccups last year and never ran into charge temp problems. And you load a motor on a sled a lot more than on a rzr xp.

The intercoolers under the bed are worthless unless they are air/water imo. His auto tune also makes it really nice.

I like being able to plug in my laptop, run data logs, review the fueling, and make changes on my MCX kit. But once it is set, I never play with it. They all have pros and cons. Pick the one that has the features you like.
