Thunder Products Powerjet vs. Dial-a-jet vs. Intelajet

I was just browsing and came across these three products from the same company that are supposed to help with carburetor tuning. I just wondered if any of you ever used one before or know somebody using them? What are your thoughts?

1. Powerjet: Thunder PowerJet Performance Carburetor Clutching Snowmobile Motorcycle ATV Improved Fuel Efficiency

2. Dial-a-jet: Thunder Products - Performance carburetor and clutching for snowmobiles, motorcycles and ATVs.

3. Intelajet: Thunder Products - Performance carburetor and clutching for snowmobiles, motorcycles and ATVs.

I have read great reviews on the dial a jet,they were used a lot on you carb sleds because of the often elevation changes.If you ride in the same range elevation this kit's aren't needed.If I was jumping from 3000' to 8000' I would have one.I have gotten some info on the dial a jet.

My typical riding is anywhere from 4000'-8500'. Plus I can get some pretty large temperature swings up at those elevations on those cold morning hunts. So I was wondering if something like one of these would benefit me? It would be nice to have the adjustment without having to tear apart the carb to rejet every time.

Just wondering which of the three would be the best option if I decided to get one? I like the simplicity and cost of the powerjet. I guess it uses straight fuel and has a pretty wide range of adjustment. But I don't know whether the "emulsified" fuel/air from the dial-a-jet or intelajet would give much better results?

As long as you can adjust the power jet that should be fine.myself I would want to be able to adjust the air/fuel mixture also.sometimes the price don't matter.

At those elevations not snorkeled,I would think you would want smaller than a 132 main jet.I could tell a difference at 4200' How dry the air is also matters.

I would do the fuel injection if it wasn't too expensive. Not sure what all is required to do that conversion?
