I looked at those D7 turbo's, 90hp sounds like a lot of fun but I don't know. I know they say they are trail friendly but probably not the trails I ride, lots of mud and water and no good protection for that air filter and I would hate it if I couldn't get that exhaust out behind me. Also my Raptor now is only 6 months old and I have 2 more years of warranty left on it so I don't want to tear into it. I need to find a 250r to sit on, not sure my fat ass will work on that.

I may be getting older, but I refuse to grow up!

Good luck Bud!
^^^ I agree ^^^ Just race what you got. Or build what you want on a conservative budget that as said can be run elsewhere. Besides dirt , do you have access to asphalt or sand drags.

I have (for sale) a 250R that gives a 450 a run for its money. And there are lots of go fast parts out there for them.

You don't have to tear into a motor at all with the turbo kit. Thats what makes them so nice. They are actually fast as hell on a bone stock motor. Langford has all kinds of videos of his bone stock motor with a D7 turbo kit on it and raced damn near every weekend and it just kept on going. LMS there trail rides his turbo bike. And when he says trail ride he means it lol.

A Raptor 700, lowering kit, stock arms,*brand new* outsu 501(stock 2001 400ex rear)tires, msd programmer, 15t front sprocket, 12.5:1 CP piston, stg 3 hot cam, my mild port head, duals and a K&N filter kit. That setup runs low 5's in dirt 300' consistently on more than 6 different bike's. That's more than plenty to beat you average weekend warriors and it will be just as reliable.

not sure why my pictures don't show up ?

we rode in the deep snow with zero issues as well.

not sure what you call lots of mud and water deep as in 2 ft? or just puddles?

either way I was just sharing my experience with my kit. I will probably never go back to to a NA bike

Ok I got confirmation today they are for sure doing the drags. So if you guys were building one would you do a 660 or 700. I am thinking a mild build. High compression, big cam, dual exhaust, +4 swinger or so.
