    It might be worth contacting Turner directly and see what they say. At 325lbs, you may want to use a HT. I know with my 2011 Spot, I run about 20 lbs less than my body weight. For you, that would be at the max allowed by Fox. You may need some serious customization to get that bike to work well!
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    As Vespa said, with the ball park air pressure you will be at the absolute maximum Fox recommends. I doubt one could fit a coil on that length shock that would generate the proper amount of sag either.
    Your situation would be one where the Foes 2:1 should be looked into. Check them out and see what they say.
