Here at Boost-It, our turbo kits must meet the following criteria.
-Kits must appear like they could have been made from the manufacturer of the vehicle.
-Must leave as many stock components in place as possible without compromising performance.
-All stock fuel injection programming remains in place for stock like bottom end and ease of troubleshooting.
-Only extra injectors are used for fueling needs on boost and controlled by our standalone extra injector controller.
-All kits are built with overbuilt components to allow room for further motor mods and more hp.

We have fuelled and boosted hundreds of Yamaha 3 and 4 cylinder engines, and take pride in knowing these machines perform to the customers expectations.

We have selected a US distributor based on customer service. It was our number one priority because we are enthusiasts too. We understand any high performance machine can be more prone to issues, and the number one priority is getting customers back on the gas as soon as possible.
We also only use the best available components.
Here is a short list:
Garrett turbos
Turbosmart brv, boost control, wastegate actuator
Bell Intercooler
Bosch injectors and water pump
Donaldson intake systems
Our proprietary XIC fuel controller is built by SDS and supported with their 35 years of fuel injected turbo experience.
All exhaust is stainless steel
Turbo mount for YXZ is laser cut stainless steel.

We will have 2 different turbo kits for the YXZ. There will be a trail version and a water to air intercooled version.
Pricing to be announced Nov 9th.

Trail kit includes:

Garrett 2860RS turbo
Boost-It XIC fuel management with 3 extra injector
Intake air temp compensation
Barometric pressure compensation
Turbosmart low boost wastegate actuator
Donaldson intake filter
Aluminum airbox with velocity stack intakes and incorporated billet fuel rail. Airbox clamp system included.
Turbosmart BRV to turbo intake.


Hi Load kit adds:

Water to air intercooler with billet water end caps and standalone heat exchanger. Rollbar crossmember billet mount.
Electronic boost controller.
Liquid filled boost gauge and gauge mount.


Trail kit is designed for riders demanding hard acceleration, but stock like feel. Kit is recommended for riders that want a stealthy look and use stock tire size.

High load kit is designed for the sand, hills, and riders that want to hunt down their buddy's for a drag race. This kit will have you banging off the speed limiter before you know it.
For extended periods under boost, nothing makes your motor love you more than a water to air intercooler.

Who else uses water to air intercoolers? For 6.7 Scorpion diesel, Rousch Performance, Dodge Challenger Hellcat Hemi. Even the new Polaris RZR uses a water to air intercooler.

For 2016, we are building a total of 70 YXZ turbo kits and they will be on a first to order basis. Kits will start to ship Feb 2016 and will be available through Racin Station in Driggs Idaho.
Racin Station will set up a small dealer network across the US to dealers who meet the needed criteria.

More details to be released Mon Nov 9th.

More pics.
Intake air temps are displayed on XIC so no guessing.
If there is anything we have learned there is no substitute for proper header tube lengths with a Yamaha 4 stroke engine. With the stock cams, header tube length before the collector is critical for sustained top end power. We were very excited to see the work of art Yamaha used on the YXZ. It is very easy to work on, and affordable to replace if needed.

Sorry for the late response...we are slammed with snowmobile turbo builds right now.

The Dune kit will be 6495.00 cdn. Trail kit is 5495.00

Wow $6500 cdn = $4900 USD at the current exchange rate for the dune kit. Worth it to order from Canada...
You sure that $6500 is Cdn? From the post up above that looks to be USD. (I hope it's Cdn!)
Boost-It, can you clarify this please?

Yes that is cdn pricing. We will have to look at exchange rates before we start shipping to our US distributor. The US pricing may change.
We will not be shipping to US customers directly from Canada. There are always other charges when importing goods that most people do not consider.

Hey BOOST IT....I see you have chosen to keep the stock header in tact (like all but one other vendor RPM) What are the pros and cons of both kits? It's hard for us consumers to make the right choice when we have limited data on product comparison. Im gonna buy one or the other, I just want to make the right choice obviously. Dunes and Desert is my main playground. Thanks in advance!

These motors are very strong and the only 2 ways to really hurt them are overheating or detonation. Detonation is the result of not enough octane for the boost pressure, and/or high charge temps.
Our water to air intercooler is recommended for any use that creates sustained engine loads. People are naturally drawn to a low priced turbo kit, then find ways to justify that it is good enough for their application.
We give customers the opportunity to own a product that is likely more than what they need, but we also know that turbo customers want more once they become comfortable with the increase in performance.
We use a huge Garrett ball bearing turbo that does not create massive charge temps because it does not have to work so hard. We use the most efficient form of charge air cooling possible in any turbo application. Both of these have huge benefits in performance and built in safety for the engine.
We will hit the dunes with two different units in Feb, and want to invite members of this forum, as well as other turbo kit manufacturers if they want to join us.
Does a big turbo and stock header create lag? This vid is self explanatory.

We're and when in Feb? Boost it is well known in the sled world in the back country. They make some amazing products and reliable products. Look forward to seeing this product in person.
