    Is a 180 MPI or 190 MCXpress kit enough power or should I say screw it and go with a 240hp kit? Which brand and kit is better for power and reliablility? Throw me some pro's and con's of each brand of turbo and why you would go with a 180 or 190 or even a 240 or 270 kit

    Any information and input would be greatly appreciated...
    I have a 2008 Nytro with MPI 180 kit, and a few other upgrades like track and Skinz airframe boards. This sled is amazing from where it started, and the MPI kit does not skip a beat (2nd season on it). I ride with another guy who has the MCX 180 kit and sleds are comparable, one thing we did find is the boost recovers faster on the MPI kit which may come in handy when boondocking as you are on and off the throttle. Most of the Yamaha guys will tell you the boost is addicting, and i myself am looking at doing the 230 upgrade to my kit and streching it out to a 162". But like the other guys said it depends who you ride with and how you ride, my 180 kit is going where everyone else in our group is going and still fun to ride in the trees.

    Hhmmmm. You mention upgrading the turbo from a 180 to more boost in the future. I would recommend you look at the costs associated with going from the 190 to the 240/270. It will be cheaper to just start with the higher boost and be done with it. I'd probably recommend the 240 to start with. That will put you on similar footing with other boosted sleds (boondocker 2t pros/xm and so on). I find that the MCX 190 is pretty much comprable with the new 800s that are out now. Generally speaking, the 180/190 turbo equals you out with the new 800s from a horsepower to weight ratio, not withstanding you get the benefit of 4t torque!!!

    To upgrade later, which is exactly what I am looking at now is going to cost an additional $4000+, which seems kind of wasteful, knowing what I know after riding the 180 MCX for the past 3 seasons. I say, go for the bigger boost!!!!!

It is also a 153 so not sure if a 240+ will be necessary? The reason I went with a nytro is to turbo it and I am definitely worried that I will throw a 180 or 190 kit on it and then a year later want to switch it out for more power.

    And none of the guys I ride with have a boosted sled... so that is a very good point, although every group needs a trailer breaker haha.

    Very good point and thank you!!! You now have me thinking and leaning towards getting a 240hp... I take it you are upgrading to a 240hp mcxpress kit?

    Does anyone have opinons or thoughts on which turbo kit is better between a mcxpress 240/270 or mpi 240/270?
