Looking for a 900 Fusion guru to give me a little help.....I just got the EPI clutch kit and going to get the Timbersled airbox and a Dynoport big volume can that is all I'm going to do this summer. I'm thinking that should be enough.

Would all of those items not have detail specifics for there installation?

Wonder how the can works with the EFI system?

Sounds like some great upgrades, should make for a real screamer :thumbsup:

Installing them is not a problem.....I'm just kind of looking for direction :unsure: I want a great trail sled! The sled is a screamer now but, The mod I'm making are more of a need to...The airbox is a heat problem and the belt guard. So if the belt were to break it wound just destroy the plastic airbox. The clutch from the factory is not very good at all. The can is for weight reduction and free up some room under the hood. There are not of lot of people that have these sleds, so I'm just looking for a little direction for a corner to corner sled. Not a drag sled! All I ever heard was how bad these were and this one is just incredible! I would put it up against any other sled as an all a round sled. :wink: Needless to say I'am very happy with it, just want to make it a little better.

Not since 2006 has there been a problem with the Fusion, beyond the vibration that exists in the 900. Buying a 2005 in 2006 or later meant the updates were done, and again, no problems. I love the darn things :D

Never heard of the airbox creating a heat problem... all it does is take in air and warm air burns easier from my experience. As for the belt breaking and destroying the airbox, I've never heard of that happening yet. Yes, the airbox doubles as a belt deflector, but I've never heard of it breaking. Then again, I've never heard of a belt breaking on the 900 either, it simply tears the teeth away and you have to replace the belt because it feels even rougher than normal. I had my belt "blow" and it never had a clean break, drove over 40 miles on it, then realized why it was riding rough. 2 inches of teeth were missing, and in two other places you can see where the same problem was trying to happen. I did have somewhere around 1,765 miles on it (I don't remember; I know I posted the actual mileage somewhere else on this forum).

Anyway, what kind of guidance were you looking for in terms of installation? The main thing is you manage to fabricate (if you're going that route) something that will work and fit the way you want. In terms of affecting the computer system (different air flow) you're going to need to talk to a mechanic in person anyway :crazy:

I must not be making myself clear :crazy: I have no problem with putting the parts on !!! I'am a prototype build technician, so I build and fabricate parts for a living. What I want is someone who deals with these sleds to give me a little direction in how to improve the sleds performance.
As far as the airbox goes I saw one where the belt broke and it destroyed everything! I don't know how the air is where you are :unsure: But here the colder the air the better.....the colder the air is the more you can get in the cylinder so the more power you make. The clutch is way to Conservative from the factory, and all I want to do is get it to the ground. The mods I want to make have no effect on the fuel mapping.

I was in the race with both of you guys and if I remember right I think you both need at least one turbo...maybe 101mm Garrett and you could keep up?
