Hello all, after a 3 yr absence from the firecat im now back. Tomorrow mornin im buying a 03 F7 efi. I use to have a 05 f7 carb diamond drive. I know the 03's r the fastest year. The sled has 1000 miles on rebuilt motor. 100 miles on rebuilt shocks, snopro track, bmp can, 6 inch riser and 4th wheel kit with 8inch bogies. I plan on sending ecu in to arctic cat to get the 06 remap. What other performance upgrades r a must on the f7 to make it a major rocket. Thanx all

Clutching, timing key, Y-Pipe & BMP Pipe mod
Whos got the best clutch kit, im gettin the bmp y pipe, thought bout either the bmp pipe mod or buyin the stealth pipe. I heard alot of bad yet good on the timing key. Which key is best? On the dash theres a switch red & blue, the blue is ethanol...where shud i run this switch?

Run the switch in ethanol.. Unless you can get non ethanol gas.

ODS has good clutch kit. That's what I ran on my 06.

Thanks all. I was thinkin bmp ypipe are theres good or is there a better one?

dont waste your money on the Y pipe if you are not going to get the rest of the pipe to go with it. The 1.5HP it gives it not worth the 200 bucks and you wont even notice the difference. . I would also get them all from the same company and not mix and match parts.

I had a D&D y pipe and I had to weld it. Go with a BMP Y pipe, Stealth pipe mod and get them both ceramic coated to keep the heat in. Put a 2deg timing key in and an ODS clutch kit and you'll be flying. Get rid of the fart can go back to a stock silencer and put an 05 seat on it. Just my 2cents
