❏ When thinking about a 4x4 ATV,
this machine doesn’t quite fit in the
category; it’s much more than that.
This Can-Am Renegade is mean and
puts out massive amounts of power.
With a push of a button, a furious
40 additional horsepower unleash-es, propelling the 1108cc monster
forward with the force of a rocket.
Adding nitrous to any engine will
boost power until the tanks are empty,
but that’s not the only impressive
upgrade on what we dubbed the
“Raging Renegade.” Jason Smith of
Midwest Power & Performance, a
Can-Am dealership based in Keokuk,
Iowa, has built another high-octane
Can-Am monster machine.
ALL ABOUT THE PONIES
Can-Am’s Renegade 1000 is a powerhouse right off of the showroom
floor, but Midwest prides themselves
on boosting power and performance.
Jason and his team started this build
with a brand-new crated machine
that had never been ran and dug
right into the engine. Midwest took
apart the powerplant and installed a
series of parts from The BOM Racing,
starting with a 1108cc big-bore kit,
high-compression pistons, race heads
and their Super Mag camshafts. After
that, the stock 46mm throttle body
was replaced with a 51mm throttle
body to add more fuel to the equation
with a Dobek 3. 5 fuel controller and
A stock Can-Am Renegade doesn’t come with cargo racks.
Midwest installed a rear bumper/rack combo by Gorilla Axles
and mounted the nitrous tanks to the rack.
This Can-Am sports a 1108cc powerplant, with even more
engine upgrades with the BOM’s performance parts.
The nitrous system that was installed
on the Can-Am adds a 40-horsepow-
er boost by a push of the handle-bar-mounted button that rests next to
ODI Lock-On grips.
A performance snorkel kit sticks up in
front of the custom bar-pad cover by
Darkside Tint and Graphix. The snorkel
system minimizes water and debris
entering into the air filter and CVT venting system.
The black-and-green color scheme
on the Renegade was done by Superior
Powder Coating and Aquaprint Grafix.
