If you don't want to open up the carbs to change jetting, your options are limited. Best bang for your bucks would be an after-market pipe/can. SLP stuff works great in Polaris sleds. Their single pipe/can will dump a bunch of weight, too. But that will also require rejetting and different springs/clutch weights/helix to take advantage of the pipe. Pretty much if you significantly change one thing, you have to change the others, too.

Twin pipes will give you more HP, but are very touchy to jetting. If you don't want to change jets for riding conditions (elevation and temperature) twin pipes probably won't work for you. That said, an Edge 800 with 160 HP is pretty dang fast and would be very competitive with that 800 EFI Arctic Cat.

If you don't want to do any carb/clutch work, best you can do is to make sure the track is aligned, skis are aligned to the track, no sticky bearings in the suspension wheels, carbides are straight, clutches are clean and clutch offset is spot on. A new belt can also give you a bit more performance, as well.

I had an SLP pipe/can on my 02 800 RMK. It's not loud, just different. It's got a more "throaty" sound than the stock pipe. You can definitely tell it's not stock, but it doesn't split your eardrums when you pin the throttle to the bar. When I got mine, I followed SLP's recommendations to the T for clutching, weights, helix angle, and carb jetting. I never had any issues with any of it, their recommendations were spot on.

That sled was a rocket to about 90 mph. Having up to 150 Hp on tap can be quite addicting

Stocks have a heat shield and slp doesn't and generally says slp on it. The full slp system does wonders on the 800

Get the air box mod too. And add a couple of vents in the dash to let more air in. And Vforce III reeds. The list is endless Let your pocketbook be your guide

Your stock pipe is ceramic coated by the looks of it , you can see the old heat shield hose clamp guides. and the blue vents in front of hood are just a accessorie. They all have them but you can change colors. The air box is stock also

Try going up a tooth on your top gear in the chane case, or some secondary clutches can add a little to your top end,pipes will give a little more go juice also
