Kettering University's Clean Snowmobile Challenge student design team has developed a new robust and innovative snowmobile for the 2004 competition. Switching from the previous years four-stroke automotive engine, Kettering University has utilized a modified snowmobile in-line four cylinder, four-stroke, fuel- injected engine. This engine has been installed into a 2003 Yamaha RX-1 snowmobile chassis. Exhaust emissions have been minimized through the use of a customized catalytic converter and an electronically controlled closed-loop fuel injection system. A newly designed and tuned exhaust as well as several chassis treatments have aided in minimizing noise emissions.
