When I race I say there is two ways to beat them. Out run them or out last them. Don't worry you will out last them and you handle much better regardless of what a Prowler owner might say.

I got a Rhino 700 that will smoke that Prowler 1000 on a cross country race.

im not talking about a long distance race...where one may have parts failures..just a pure drag race showing which one has the most balls under the hood.

A build that extensive to Drag race a STOCK prowler1000 will put too much of a strain on the mechanics of your Teryx to be worth it, you will sacrifice LONG TERM reliablity for a 20 Second Race.

I don't know the answer yet, but let's find out!
My 09 Teryx Sport was not nearly fast or quick enough in the dunes New Years at Glamis. I am going to make this thing scream. I'll post up how it turns out.

I wouldnt think it would take much at all, the prowler stock at the rear wheels is probably about 45 to 50 hp, you can get that much hp out of a kawie with a 800cc build or an 820, port the heads, stock valving, add muzzys, cdi, air filter, and still send less than the MSRP of a prowler, my teryx with just muzzys, afe filter, cdi, and proper jetting put down 36 hp on the dyno. of course my 1000cc pistons just showed up at fundy performance, so by presidents day there will be a 1000cc teryx at dumont pumping double the hp of the prowler IF ALL GOES WELL. there was a little 820 teryx at dumont this past weekend that was 70hp at the rear wheels, it could climb up any hill out there and was ridiculously fast, fun to watch, he was hot lapping the hill all day long, not one problem.

I agree with sincity on this one, I have the FST 840 kit with muzzys, vdi, and dalton kit and overdrive plate, i believe it would smoke any stock quad out there in 300'. It is very close to the performance of my old prairie with a 800 bbk and stock carbs. I cant wait to meet up with a prowler and put a good ole whoppin on him!!

FST does have a 900 stroker kit for the V-Twin, but I don't think it's been done in a Teryx....YET. I'd give Mickey a call and see what he thinks.

I will say this, my 08 Teryx was just dyno'd a second time and is now putting 45 HP to the rear wheels. My stock motor has the following bolt on performance mods: muzzy exhaust with heat wrap, dynatek hot coils, DF CDI, aFe air box & carb jetting, dalton clutch with cover plate, high pressure/volume fuel pump.
I think it is also important to not only consider the total amount of power output, but power output to weight ratio. My friend runs an 06 Rhino with a snow mobile clutch and No stock Teryx with bolts-on mods can run away from him. We have more power but we also have more weight.
I am certainly looking for more power but dont want too lose any reliability.
