Looking at adding some horsepower to my 485 with the quad shift and isx15. Wondering what others have used. Looking at Ekotuning but their website seems broken and I can't find dealers. Talked some with Steinbauer at the last ag show I was at. These versatiles had transmission issues when getting into the higher Hp torque engines. Curious what others have done. Thinking of going to 515 hp but not set in stone.

Thanks

Where are you located? There should be no reason why your 485 couldn't be made into a 535 via simple programming, the transmission is no different between those two models.

They are absolutely the same tractor as the 535. I've heard from several people though that the transmissions don't stand up in the 535s. I even owned a 535 that had had the transmission rebuilt before I bought it. Ended up getting rid of it due to lack of hydraulics.

I'm about a hour NE of Williston ND. About 20 miles from Estevan.
