Check this out: The American V4 | Motus



Very interesting. I know they did this in a Poo Poo, but what an awesome engine swap this might be! Imagine it boosted!

I had seen that video, but did not realize it was the Motus engine conversion in the Poo.
Stock YXZ motor with the 50-shot?

The low boost turbo kit at 5-6 psi is still putting down more HP than the 50 shot. Is NOS generally riskier than boost?

riskier only if done incorrectly. not sure the mpi kit puts down more than a 50 shot plus tune/exhaust. considerably less money too.

Hey Nate:

The NOS kit has been gone from your site for some time -- Any plans to re-introduce it ??

I also see the price removed from your cams -- Just curious ......... :)

Nitrous Systems – Straightline Performance Inc.

We decided to send inquiries directly to the manufacturer. Honestly, I didnt want to deal with the tech support. lol.

Cam pricing is removed because of availability. We are having a hard time keeping up. Sorry.

I have been thinking about this engine swap for a long time now. I really hope someone slaps a v4 in the yxz. if they make a kit I will be the first to try it.

Hi Scottdmax, sounds really sweet, I wonder how the rubber bands are holding up. About 5 years back I taken test ride in an Excalibur with Ecotec motor, great suspension super fast. They had a racing team, hard time winning races could not get belts to hold up. Love that Poo motor with shifter. ghosthunter

I have a Waverunner VXR with a 1800cc 180HP motor normally aspirated that I was thinking of doing a swap. It would need an electric water pump and possibly an exhaust. Massive low end power and it redlines 8600rpm's
