Hill Climb Coordinator for Arctic Cat Inc.
I work and build snowmobiles in the Race Dept. The main job is building ECU programs for hill climb sled.
The CH701 I built has a 3 cylinder 660 turbo Suzuki engine from a snowmobile. It runs very well.
Like your choice of engine! I have some questions: In regards to weight of the engine as installed... how heavey? Is this a water cooled setup? Do all Suzuki 660 3 cylinder engines come with a turbo? Is Artic Cat the only snowmobile builder using this engine? Can this engine be bought new from Artic cat?
I have a chance to buy a wrecked 2001 Artic Cat ZR600EFI machind with 3955 miles on it! I'm building a 701 with a few mods... and the engine must be able to handle the 701 of floats!
Do you have any more photos of the setup?
A very interesting engine installation. I would enjoy hearing the details about the engine and the performance of it. I currently run a Vw powered 701 with a belted redrive that performs really well. I will be away until the 28th and I will check my mail then.
