slx 1200 porting opinions and questions
I plan on porting my 1200 at some point. I'm looking on opinions on who to go with. If it were you who would you have do it and why? I'm not really up to snuff on who does good porting on polaris skis that's why i'm asking. I'd consider doing it myself if someone has some good specs, i've done my own sled motors before with excellent dyno and field results, but i'm pretty familiar with the port timing specs for sleds. It's a whole different ballgame though on the ski with it being direct drive and turning lower rpm than a sled motor. Much greater chance of screwing up. Anyone have some specs they'd share? One last question for the experts. Has anyone looked into cutting auxilary exhaust ports in to the pwc cylinders? I haven't looked at the cylinders in a while, but since the casting is very similar to the sled cylinders with triple exhaust ports, i was wondering if it could be done. I know guys have done it on other motors, has anyone explored this at all?

Sharp's Marine, Randy at Watcon or Chris Bush would be the only people I would trust with my Polaris engines.

I didn't know Chris Bush did engine work. Does he have contact info?

Never thought of Erich Long(Bikeman). He used to work at Chopper city and Hot seat, so i suppose he would know what he's doing.
