A DPM adjusts your jetting based on altitude, etc.

Replace it, it needs that to work correctly.

Your sled is the first year of the xp chassis it doesnt have a dpm but does compensate for altitude through the ecm you dont say what model you have but if you have the premium gauge package than you can set your display to show altitude.

I'd try Epoxy *way* before I'd ever drop $400 on that part.

What's the altitude that you'll be at in Wyoming? You'll almost certainly have to re-jet...

BTW - how are you getting the sled there? Might be a lot cheaper to rent one in WY. You'll save transporting costs, and you'll ride a new sled that's set up for the local terrain. Typical rentals are under $200 a day.

Which brings up another point; is yours a short track? A 121" track with tiny paddles will get you nowhere in WY, unless you're going to ride it on on the plowed streets.

Should be okay on the track, but if you can't fix the DPM, you're going to have to re-jet it. 8,200 feet is a LOT higher than your home altitude! Your body is going to notice the altitude, for sure! You'll get out of breath real easy up that high.

Your sled will have the same issue! Less air means you need less gas. If you don't re-jet it, it will spit and sputter at that altitude. It will be like running with the choke on all the time. You'll lose a lot of power.
