New member from Wickenburg, AZ

Hi everyone,
I've been scouring the boards for a few months since I bought my "project" Prowler. It is an 06 650 that was pretty much stock except for some shocks. I bought it with a blown up engine. I have added a cage which included deleting the bed. I'm still undecided on buying a new engine or re-powering it with a Can-am 800. For the 3K it looks like it will cost me from Cat for an engine I will be quite a ways towards the re-power.

I tried posting photos, but will have to wait until I have 15 post, I did upload to a gallery which should be available after a moderator approves the photos.

What is wrong with your 650 motor? I rebuilt mine, and it turned out to be easier than I thought. Might save yourself a lot of money by just rebuilding what you have (depending on what is wrong).

My engine dropped a valve, it has a hole in the jug, the head needs at least new a new guide and seat, but it is pretty hammered, it would probably need replaced. The piston was completely gone into little pieces. The rod bearing has lots of slop, and it punched a hole (fixable) in the case.
I started pricing out parts, and soon it becomes cheaper to buy a new one.
I had priced the engines, and was torn between $2300 shipped from Babbits, and a re-power. After reading Joe's Thread on here about trying to buy from everybody, then having to order from Cat for ($2699 plus tax), it becomes easier justify the extra money to swap the engine.

An arctic cat 1000 engine would also be nice, my thought on the swap was to add a bit more power, and add fuel injection. I have been searching, and found a few canam engines, but have not yet seen a used 1000 engine.

Still shopping, 3-4k on everything needed for a swap or 4-6k for a complete quad. Complete quad would be easier to make sure it is good. Engine only and I would have to do a compression test and check it out. But there always is a chance it's has problems.

Yeah, it didn't sound like anybody was honoring their advertised price when Joe was shopping....

I think the motor swap would be cool if not too much of a PIA. I would like to install a 1000 into mine, but I think the cost would be too great and trying to get everything to mesh up correctly.

I believe there was a member Sandchris that did a Canam swap on his, but I don't think he comes by anymore. But you might get some feedback from others that know him....
