Need more power

Hey guys I have a 09 xtx 700 need some help getting some more horse power on the lower end. When I get down in the mud it likes to bog down. I put a epi clutch kit in but really could use more. Everything but the clutch is stock. Open to all ideas

the best one [idea wise] … sell it and buy a XTZ 1000 and never look back … yes I'm a smart azz

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

What EPI kit did you go with,what size tires you running,you can go with several airdam options on your clutch.or you can go with lighter rollers weights or put a 2mm shim between your primary sheaves will give you more low end.

Actually Gary's idea makes sense! I thought about doing that, but with all of the time I have in mine, and knowing the machine inside out, I decided to just modify mine. I've seen some attractive pricing on Prowlers, and many have low miles. I have about ,1800.00 dollars in my engine, and it will still not out perform a stock 1000, but I knew that going in! I don't think I'll be disappointed with it once it is completed! And it is still paid for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL

I guess if I really thought I needed a torque monster I probably would buy a 1000,I feel my machine runs plenty good enough,besides if had a 1000 I would still be modifying it.......It's in my blood, I look at it has the new 2014 T-rex 800 only has a top speed of 48 Mph and I can do better than that.the new honda pioneer 43 mph,the new viking around 50 mph, 800 ranger around 53 mph........................AND THE BEST PART IS NO PAYMENTS.
