    Wouldn't changing the muffler/resonator have minimal gains? Maybe not enough to be noticeable?

    Diesel mag of some kind did a bunch of dyno testing and found that even DPF back exhausts improved performance although not as much as when they replaced the DPF also

    How big is our exhaust? 2.5"? I'm thinking about having my muffler shop just make me a DPF back 3" to some slightly bigger tips. I doubt it makes much of a differnce

    Would love to have a chase truck just like you're building. I race UTV's everywhere from King of The Hammer to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

    Believe it or not, this is what my 2009 RZR-S looks like now:

    LOVE it!

    On the exhaust performance side of things...turbo engines don't see the same gains as non-turbo versions from this. The engine is already over efficient as the turbo's job is to add more air into the combustion chamber than atmospheric pressure alone would do. Yes, there can be small gains, but not at the scale of many normal aspirated engines sometimes see.

    Just watched a baja 1000 UTV race video, reminded me of this build. Any updates?

    MBDIESEL,

    It's been a couple months since your last post on the build...Any pics or updates on the progress? I'm sure there quite a few of us that are looking forward to seeing what you've done!

    I actually phoned them the week before the holiday to request someone come by with an update. Guess they're still busy.
