Dakota Performance Has earned a rub and tug from AR
Default 2012 Arctic Cat M8 162 Sno Pro W/ Dakota Performance 920 Big Bore and Vi Pec ECU.

This is Jason from Dakota Performance and we are selling several of our project sleds to make room. All of these sleds are our own projects that started out with a specific goal while keeping the sled driveable, reliable, and as easy to own as a stock sled. All of them have made multiple trips to the mountains and are completely dialed in. Our most important goal is to make sure that we can hand the tether to anyone on the mountain and they can simply pull the rope and ride. Just like buying any modified sled there are probably a lot of questions you'd like to ask and we would be more then happy to answer them. Just give us a call our send us an E-mail.

This sled started as a project to see if we could make 200 horsepower in a naturally aspirated sled that only needs 91 octane fuel. We started with a stock Arctic Cat M8 Sno Pro and set about cutting and modifying the chassis to fix the problems that the first year of the Proclimb chassis is known for. Among other things we changed the tie-rod position for better turning, moved the skid mounts down and back both front and rear, and swapped out the 40 inch a-arms for a set of 38's. Next we installed 7 tooth drivers and a 3" Camoplast Challenger Extreme track to really make this thing climb. To keep the sled from trenching and to get it on top of the snow faster a set of OVS wheelie stops were added to the rear suspension. To reach the 200 horsepower mark we put in a Dakota Performance 920 Big Bore Kit that comes with BDX 50mm throttle bodies, a D&D Y-pipe, and a Vi Pec ECU. With a stock pipe and a stock can it made 206 horsepower and 137 lb-ft of torque on the engine dyno at Precision EFI while running 91 octane pump gas. Of course nobody wants to use the heavy stock exhaust so we installed a full SLP ceramic coated exhaust that shaved 18 pounds off but did lose 1 horsepower at Peak RPM's.

For pictures of this sled and other project sleds we're selling Google Dakota Performance Inc. (vbulletien won't let me post a link) I can also email you high res pictures on request. Asking price is $11,400.
