    MCXpress 190hp turbo kit vs. MPI 180hp turbo kit

    Anyone want to give me some insight and opinions on turboing a 2012 Nytro? I am looking at putting one in and do not want to spend over $10,000 for a 240 or 270hp kit...

    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 only ever rode a 240 mcx kit but it was very reliable and relatively smooth power. More than enough for a typical rider but the 190 kits would be as well I bet. Save enough to change skid to racers edge or kmod or timbersled depending on which one appeals. Then change the front end to skinz or zbros. Your pushing your 10k mark but it'll be close. Oh and a dime or two for clutching. Almost forgot. All this of course depends on ridin style though.....

    I have the 190 MCX kit and I think its great. You will need to upgrade your track and drivers and go for a zbroz fromt end. Then it is really great.

    As for me, I am going away from the 190 and upgrading to the 270, after riding one this weekend. It was even better!!! Totally ridable and more fun IMO. The 270 has a bit more lag, but it still is fine. Everything depends on what you get used to...

    The other question is what are other guys in your group riding? A high boost turbo is significantly more power and much more capable in the deep pow. If you are a skilled rider, you can boondock on any of the above.

    That is a excellent point. Once you go big horse and don't have anyone else the same in your ridin group it'll get awkward. My nypex is near complete and I only have a couple buds to ride with where we can use them to full potential. I also have a Doo for ridin with the others. Makes the days more fun IMO.


    Ps-don't take post wrong way. You can boondock,tree ride, technical whatever the **** outta a nytro. Just way more learning curve to make it not tiring but once ya got it figured its blissful. Lol

    Re: MCXpress 190hp turbo kit vs. MPI 180hp turbo kit

    Thanks guys... ya I already have the skinz front end, timbersled skid, as well as many modifications; dropped a lot of weight and now it handles like I hoped it would (like a pro or summit). It handles great in the trees and that's where I like to hangout mostly and don't like to climb in chutes but I do like to be able to boondock through and up anything. 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.

    I have a 190 kit and it makes the Nytro super fun, and its still easy to handle. I am the only boosted sled in my crew and it is awkward sometimes...always waiting and I have been stuck where no one could get to me...good times.

    With the 190 kit you can always upgrade in the future I believe but with the MPI 180 thats all you got with out buying a complete new kit.

    Both kit are excellent, MPI is also upgradable just like MCX is. The one thing I like about the MPI you don't have to do any welding on you header to instal versus MCX you do. When doing the upgrade on the MPI you also have 2 or 3 stage in upgrade just as well like MCX. MPI is a bit more tuneable ratter than, you don't touch it and leave it as it is like MCX. MCX hold a reputation like no other as far as power, reliability and fit and finish. MPI is still new in the turbo world but not new in the BOOST industrie, there product are second to nun in fit, finish, performance and reliability. If you have more question on MPI or MCX give Darren Boychuck at E&S motorcycle in Fort Saskatchewan he will tell you all about these 2 wonderful kit. I own a MPI 180 kit on my Nytro and part of a MCX on my Nypex... I love them both.

    MPI kit is upgradable as well, 180, 230, 270 and one more that haven't been dyno yet as far I know that blows the 270 out of its league.... All on pump gas
