Default 2003 G22 -- Plowmans Hot Setup

http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/gas-y...wifes-g22.html

http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/gas-y...mance-kit.html

This cart has gone thru a lot of changes since '13. Same lift and wheels, but different tires. The U-Max spring--which works just fine--gave way to the Plowmans Performance Kit. Don's secondary, along with his belt, air filter, air box mods and jets really woke up the stock cart. But after a few years I wanted more.

Enter the Hot Setup. Adding the high flow exhaust and bored/re-jetted carb to the Performance Kit is definitely a step or two up. There is a noticeable increase power and acceleration. The exhaust has a more throaty sound without being loud or annoying, and I'm impressed with the machine work on the carb. Very professional. The cart cruises nicely at 26-30mph, with a top speed on the flat at 33+ mph. It probably would go faster, but that's unnecessary.

This whole package has put a smile on my face

And thanks to Don for the great customer service over the years.

I just received my Plowman's performance kit this week, haven't installed it yet. I may get a reworked carb, if it doesn't have enough giddyup.

Changed it for you. All I did was the install. It's nice to have everything engineered for you and in an "all in one" package that works

Yep, 33 in plenty fast for me...

Wow, very impressive. That is fast! You have peaked my interest.

Please excuse my ignorance and stupid questions.

Is your oiling system still stock?

I have the governors set wide open on both of mine and am very cautious not to let them "over rev" going down our hills around here as I don't want them to exceed the non-pressureized system capabilities.

The engine is all stock, except for the carb, air box mods, and exhaust. There is no difference in the appearance of the engine compartment.

An aluminium connecting rod, no bearings shells and splash oiling on a steel crank shaft doesn't bode well for extended upper rpm usage. A lot of G16 and up carts for sale with broken engines have had rod failure.

That was my concern, but I am pretty novice at these carts. Built a lot of car motors over the years, but not one of these. I can't imagine a dipping/splash type oiling system getting too far in the upper rpm range for too long.

Hope it does for those that do though.
