Get a bigger sled. Not a wise crack, just simple straightforward advice.
There's little if anything available for mods, and that motor was never meant to be a powerhouse. As usual, you're further ahead getting a bigger sled than dumping a bunch of money into that and having a very slightly faster little sled.
There are thousands of 500 class sleds out there cheap.

I have to agree. Get something a little bit faster and easier to modify if you want more power, and keep that as a backup sled. It's just not a sled that was ever designed for performance, and unless you can find some used parts, you won't find much for it in any of the catalogs.
If you are in the ditch, upside down, and the sled's on top of you, you are doing something wrong.....

I totally agree with ZiRT and Burky, at least you're new to sledding and did it the right way. Getting an entry level sled to see if you enjoy it is better than getting an open class unit and killing someone. Unload the sled to another newby and step up. With regional snowfall like we have here, you can get alot of bang for your buck. Lots of low mileage sleds around. As for the 377, make sure it is at least running like it should. A good tune up, decent clutch set up and everything running good and if you still think its a snail, go shopping.

We run that engine in our Champ Jr sled and it will run with the fastest 440 fans with a little work.

Without giving all our secrets, I can say that AAENs Polaris Indy Sport GT 340 pipe works very well and is cheap. I don't know how it will fit under the hood of a safari, but it fit in our sled right off the bat. Our modified pipe would give you even more power, but not a good trail pipe.

Get a 84-86 447 engine or 447 cylinders ,carbs and pipe

or 1987 and up 503

I tried both on my 87 377,and found the 447 to be the easiest to do,

remember 447 pipe looks the same as the 377 but is a bit bigger
