    L4240HSTC-3 Turbo upfit-upgrade?

    Wondering if anyone has performed a turbo upfit-upgrade on one of these? I think the boost would come in handy with my front snowblower on my hilly driveway. It is a interim tier 4 without the catalytic converter and dpmf. Thanks

    I’ve had it mentioned that there is a mod that widens “cut” on turns while using the snowblower so your rear tires are in the cleared path but can’t seem to find it. Has anyone seen or used this type of mod? thanks
