"our bikes just are not very streetable when Turboed."I have had two turbo's one Mr. Turbo and one RB Racing. The RB was much better but I still will not own another one as our bikes just are not very streetable when Turboed.
I have a 1986 turbocharged GSXR 1100. Some more pics of i here. http://www.gixxer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=187957
A lot more of pis and info on my webpage. http://makephpbb.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=3&sid=a821f23c9a4c2306948f1b5cbed0254a&mforum=gixxer
The cheapest way is to build it yourself. But this requires some fabrication skills and access to welding equipment, preferably TIG welder. Over at http://oldskoolsuzuki.info/ you find a lot of good info on diy turbo kits.
Nope. The "secret" to get blow trough turbo systems to work well is to get dynamic pressure in the float bowls. The float bowl vents are connected to the pitot tube located in the charge pipe between the turbo and the plenum chamber. The opening of the pitot tube is aimed toward the airstrem. This way the fueling gets self regulating. If you increase the boost, the airflow increases and the float bowl pressure increases and this forces more fuel into the engine. If you build a box around the carbs you just get static pressure. The boost pressure into the carbs and float bowls would be the same. With the pitot tube arrangement the float bowl pressure can be higher the boost pressure. Man that was a lot of pressure I hope someone understood.R1100, say you're able to build a big enuff airbox to include the carbs in there, would that be the same stuff?
