THE 10 BEST SNOWMOBILE ENGINES OF ALL TIME! This list of 10 encapsulates all that is great in snowmobile powerplants going back several decades.

When the 1056cc, even firing, turbocharged and intercooled Suzuki twin arrived mid-2000s there was nothing 2 or 4-stroke that was capable of matching the power output of this amazing, bulletproof motor.

177 relentless ponies and enough torque to power a Tyrex Titan was and still is its calling card. Proof of its output is the motor’s appearance in custom-built off road vehicles - some producing almost 300-hp!

For its first couple of seasons the motor was mounted in Cat’s Twin Spar chassis. In between frequent belt changes, pilots would experience horribly addictive speed euphoria.

Once inserted in the Pro-Cross platform, things became increasingly reliable. A legend in our time.
