if your looking to get more power out of it, i would suggest
-reeds?
-pipes?

i would suggest extending the track like you said, so the power can be put down to the ground with minimal track spin

I had the same sled as you only in an 800. I extended mine to a 144". I loved it. I will never own another sled shorter than a 144". If you are looking for performance parts. I would definately get a single pipe. I got an SLP and it really woke up my 800. It was night and day difference. Here are a few picts of my old sled.

I am from western MN, and the past 4 years I wouldn't say we got an over-abundance of snow. I would say my riding was about 65% trail, 30% screwing around in fields, and 5% mountains. It rode much smoother than my buddy's 03 XC 500 on trails and hookup was better too.

Track 144x1.25 switchback take-off = $300
Rail Extentions = $80
Tunnel Extention= Free (I got it from my neighbor)

Other things I put on that you wouldn't need....
Switchback rack = $250 (I think)
LED Taillight = $150
8" wheels = $150

You can do the complete extention for about $500
TracksUSA rail ext = $130 with track, $170 without
TracksUSA tunnel ext = $99
Good used track = $200+
Some gearing and cluch changes = $100

Go with the 136 footprint with PPS ride if you can get it, or if you are totally into putting miles on in to trail riding, drop the M-10

144's are decent but 136 is probably a better length for trail riding. gives you a nice smooth ride and yet you can still bang it through the ditches with out a hitch!
