I'm running a 98 Xc 700. Its got a boost bottle, clutch kit, Billet heads, and Fast Twin pipes. I'm wondering if the Tempaflow will elimate the jetting changes I may need to make because of temperature changes. I run at sea leven and anywhere from -5 to -25C
I talked to my mechanic (not a Polaris tech now but is a former Poo dealer/mech. He said he is not exactly recomending the tempafow or any other jetting system to be put in a sled because you have to drill holes in the carbs. Because of this he has seen more than one motor burn down. Does he just not know how to install these things and is doing it wrong causing engine failure, or is this not a legit concern? Any one with knowledge of installing one of these, your input would be greatly apprecitiated. Also, how hard is it to do myself? I am well capable of doing most repairs, so I'd like to know what all goes into this....
Putting the exhaust can on my rev seemed so much easier. Lol, a couple springs and done!!!

I would suggest that you check out this link and do searchunder tempaflow as it has been discussed a number of times
From my understanding you should not have any problems doing it yourself after you have read the instructions a few times
Good luck with it and let us know how it works out

Buy it. I will never have a sled w/o one again. Unless it's EFI!

Does the temp flow work on a pod filter set-up or do i have to have the air box?

I believe the tempa-flow does need an air box. Also, I run a ATACC unit in my sled and I love it. It automatically adjusts for elevation and temp. How sweet is this. Been running it this season and so far I love it!!!!! As far as installation I had someone put mine in. It cost me $60.00 to have it installed. Awesome deal in my book! Total job cost was $270.00us installed! No,none, nada,nothing,not one fouled plug yet!!!!!! Burning as sweet as a top fuel dragster on a 50* degree day!!!!

I was thinking it would need the air box for vacum purposes, but was wondering if i could get it set-up in some way and keep pod filters.

There is only one hole you have to drill in the carb and that's on a flat slide for a vacuum source. Simple.
I have not had any real testing so far this year [41 miles] but I can tell you my plugs and wash have never looked better.
You really should ditch the pods as it will work much better with the box. As far as jetting, like the instructions say's, jet for coldest temps and it leans from their up to +45.

I have installed a tempa flow on my Mach z. Had a hard time understanding the instruction but with some help from a friend in this forum I finally got it install as recommended by the manufacturer. The way it was installed , it looks very good. My jetting was stock. I have done several test over the last weekend & drove the snowmobile for over 400 miles without any problems. My sparks are a nice chocolate color and the tempo flow is set to 1/8 rich, I will wait till it gets colder and do the test again, I'm pretty sure that I will be able to set the unit to the factory dot & recommended setting without problems. I would recommend the tempo flow, but make sure you understand the instructions or even if you are not sure , just ask around , I'm sure you will get some help from a buddy.
