    R&D Performance T-1 Turbo Build in a 2014 FX SVHO

    Hello everyone! After quite a bit of debating and some encouraging nudges from a few members which are also my personal friends, I have decided to do a build thread on a R&D T-1 Turbo kit that I will be installing into my brand new 2014 FX SVHO. I am doing some other things to the ski in addition to the turbo build and I will also include pics and descriptions of what and how I'm doing. I will be including things like a Garmin 640 Marine GPS install in the glove box, 5.5 gal aux fuel tank in the front storage compartment, additional hull venting, engine assembly and installation, coolant routing, electronics relocation and some other stuff I have planned for this build. So without further ado......



    First things first, I decided I liked the newer FX hull over the FZ hull for all around and long distance riding. I ended up scoring a brand new 2014 FX SVHO for $10,800 shipped in the crate. I then tore it down to nothing and will start this build with a bare hull.

    My first step in the process will be to add some more air flow to the hull. I ordered some extra stock intake tubing and drilling 2 additional 4.5" holes next to the existing stock 4.5" holes. I will be adding some more along the way.

    Subscribed. Good luck with the set up, have you thought about splitting the hull. Installing the turbo will be 100% easier that way.

    These things are so cheap in the states!!
    We can't even buy a second hand older model SHO for that in Australia.

    it would be a lot easier but I'm not a big fan of splitting hulls as I don't trust it will go back together with the same strength it was glued at the factory. It's not too bad with the upper deck on it.

    That crank with zero hours will sell for good money. This way you can do the 2016 upgrade.

    Thanks brother!! I know we started talking about this last summer and it's a long time coming. I have been piecing it together all winter and had some extra stuff done and that added more time plus trying to juggle snowmobiling, motorcycles and side work extended the time frame a little. Plus that stupid thing we all do called a job got in the way a little lol. I'm all caught up and I'm just going to concentrate on getting this all wrapped up over the next few weeks.
