A while back in the thread, there's pictures of a green bike with snorkels I developed my turbo kit pieces on. I haven't really heard anything from the customer since and just got this email from him today;

"Matt,
excellent work on the diesel turbo you installed for me. (im the guy that shipped it over from wisconsin) I just now passed 10k miles on my machine. you installed it at about 6k miles. Runnin great and strong. gets up to speed much quicker and tops out around 41 mph. might even be faster since i have 27in bighorns and have not adjusted speedometer. i love my arctic cat turbo from whitbread performance. just wish everyone could share this joy.
thankyou!!!

regards, mike s. Northern wisconsin"

I only have about 1400 miles on mine since turbo'ing so I'm glad to hear someone is out riding me!

Does anyone know how this build went? I just picked up a 700 diesel and want to go the same route with mine.

You can email Matt at <whitbreadperformance.com> I talked to him a while back before I did mine. He did a few at his place. I decided to do my own, it was about 10X harder than I expected, but it was worth it. #1 suggestion, even if you don''t turbocharge it, install a pyrometer. If you can get Matt to do the install, you'd be way ahead. You might want to read my thread. If you decide to do it yourself, PM me, might be able to help a mite.

I just emailed Matt. I hope he's still selling the kits. I just got a 700 and I really want one.

I haven't really done squat to the Cat since any updates here, needless to say it was long overdue for some maintenance beyond oil changes LOL.

My frame has been bent in the front for at least 5 or 6 years now causing funky steering geometry above 25mph. It accidentally got squished between 2 pine trees out on the trail it didn't fit between. Ever since, I've had a saved search on ebay for arctic cat 700 diesel frames. A 2014 brand new frame popped up a few weeks ago for $600 so I grabbed it! With the new frame, I figured it was a good time to do;

Dual battery conversion
All ball joints
All cv boots/diff seals/fluid changes
Oil pan gasket, valve cover gasket, and plugged pcv port on intake manifold with a 1/4" npt plug
Both u joints
Brake pads
New set of maxxis bighorn knock offs in 26" vs the old 28" tires
Balanced injectors
New turbo oil and coolant lines
All new filters
All control arm bushings
Prepped for adding second rear brake caliper, just waiting on hose/fittings to get here.

Got it done today and WOW! Engine is so much smoother, the handlebars don't try to rip themselves out of your hands anymore at random going down the trail, and the bike is just overall much tighter and not sloppy feeling anymore. It was a ton of work, but it should be good to go for a long time now .








Only difference of the 2014 frame was they changed the front gastank mount. So I cut off the new style mounts and cut the ones off my old frame. Cross tube is still exactly the same.


Balancing the injectors, forgot to snap a pic of the complete setup, hands were covered in diesel haha.


Back out in the wild!

Hey Whitbread, good to see your back. I crapped out shortly after picking up the second Cat and diesel Gator. Mother Nature bitch slapped me with a heart attack in the middle of an operation and 2 strokes shortly after that. Just recently gotten back together and have been dreaming of getting back to playing with toys. #1 Cat only has 13 miles on it, and #2 Cat and Gator have mess than 1 mile on them. Anyway, your Cat is looking good.
