You should probably read the long turbo thread by Dany1000 before you start this project. If you have a 600, you'd be much better off just selling it and buying a 1000cc before doing a turbo 600, because you're going to end up with a bike that makes about as much power as a liter bike with a much more complicated and much less reliable setup. Or, if you really want turbo, you should probably buy something like the Hayabusa or ZX-14 that has a larger community involved with turbocharging.

When I tuned my bike at Johnny Cheese, who was a very respected tuner and builder for the Hayabusa community, he even had a turbo 600 in the shop and agreed that while it made good power for a 600, it was basically a ticking timebomb and was not any more impressive in power than the liter bikes he tuned.
