Has anyone done a rotax 670 motor in a revolt? Better than a turbo?

Hey guys I was just wondering if anyone has stuffed a 670 ski-doo motor in a revolt? I have one in my Honda Pilot and my brother and I had the bright idea of why not do it to my new Revolt? Seems they put out as much power as a turbo setup but would weigh less, and cost less plus sound waaaay cooler

Re: Has anyone done a rotax 670 motor in a revolt? Better than a turbo?

Ok I need to decide on what route to go with my new Revolt. I have a Honda pilot with a Rotax 670 and it is crazy fast. My old Revolt was a LAZY pig. I want to either turbo the new Revolt or throw a Rotax in it. I already picked up a Ski-doo sled for $750 but have been collecting turbo parts since the last Revolt. Time to make up my mind. Has anybody done or heard of a 2 stroke in a revolt? Any input is welcome. I already have the RPM gearbox and Gorilla axles so either way it will live.

I saw the video, I love my very quiet turbo power. I am absolutely happy with mine. I have more power than I need. Just for input.

Jtap (Jeff) put a 800 Polaris 2 stroke in his XL. It was a dog! We could beat it with our normally aspirated Webers with no problem. After we all went with the turbo Webers, so did he and was very happy. But what ever you need to do go for it.

Oh great, I must admit after reading Pilots reply I am going to have to Think this through a little more. I consider his opinion highly valued . I know when he talks I should listen. The Honda pilot I have with the Rotax in it will annihilate The Built Honda powered Pilot I have. The rest of the Rotax Pilot is Jinxy as my brother puts it but it is " Pull a wheelie any time you want" Fast! My Honda powered Pilot is Dang near equally as fast as a stock Revolt in a drag race and will pull away in the tight dunes riding we like to do. When you look at the horsepower numbers, The Rotax is around the same as a Turbo Weber. 120 hp. I have a love for the 2 stroke powerband. That "Hit" when you have it clutched right just fuels my adrenalin. The first time I rode my first Revolt I was so bummed, I was thinking the whole way to the dunes how Bad Ass it was going to be , then I was so underwhelmed it basically sat for the next year while I rode my old built Pilot. So I sold it. With the Pilot, I could go up a dune, turn, punch the throttle, break the tires loose and roost! Blowing sand everywhere and carve the dune while my bro would barely break the tires loose, like he was driving a jeep around. LAME Then we would race through the tight sections with the big berms, between the small dunes. I would be sliding sideways lifting my front inside tire having a total blast showering my Bro with sand whenever I wanted to. Then when he would lead I would watch that lazy revolt driving around like a car on pavement , never sideways. He is a Great driver don't get me wrong. He keeps a fast race pace, because he has never had a UH OH moment that make him keep it at a sane speed, like dropping off a imperceptible dune or having someone coming at him around a corner. So he has no fear. I need to ride a Turbo Revolt I guess. Maybe ride the Jinxy Rotax Pilot at the same time. There is no denying the 2 stroke is obnoxiously loud. You have to wear earplugs under your helmet and that kinda sucks. OH, what to do, what to do....
