Day 1
Breakdown. Now I have to try and stuff a 3gallon ProMeth tank where the glove box used to be.
Moab was pretty rough on my plastics this year.
FYI parting motor, clutch, and tons of parts. Thread on the RZR forum for sale section if anyone is interested.

You are my UTV hero! I'm actually trying to put together the research into building your own UTV. Do's, don'ts, etc. Outside of buying a Turbo S, people buy a base turbo and overhaul it to get what they want. Seems like a lot of money to throw at something, only to have a base and throw more money at it. To build one from scratch, someone can have a badass UTV for 20K. I realize it's a lot of work, bending, welding etc. But that's the beauty of it, it's yours and you built it. I know yours is a RZR base, but you did what others do, build it how you want it, investing more...

I have concluded that the Z1Turbo is a popular and solid motor. Now to find a drive train, transmission, transfer cases and differentials. Finding a wrecked rzr is an option, but someone has to have other options out there. I would love to see some more pics of your build and maybe pick your brain on what you'd do different, etc.
