Turbo or NA
Turbo stuff needed
Turbo pistons set about $500
Fuel injection setup build myself $1200
oil system for the turbo $300.00
hoses clamps fittings etc $200
I already have a huge brand new turbo for it and a nice header to front mount it might even have room for a inter cooler or something. I also have some rayjay turbo stuff but I think I will stick with the one I can buy parts for or replace without NOS parts.
NA stuff needed
Rings and Teflon buttons $250
Carbs, Lectrons $1000 or fuel injection same as above $1200
The potential power with the turbo is huge, after crunching some numbers were talking 500hp at 2 bar.
and you will be able to start it with a button on the handlebars.
The NA has obvious advantages as well but after crunching the numbers from the turbo, I'm not so interested in the NA setup. Not to mention this 1327 cc ,13.5:1 piston setup wont let me start it with the on board starter, and I don't want to kick that much ass to get it going. Plus it will be prone to overheat with the big block. The best thing about this setup is it would be easier to build. All that said, I"m not in any hurry. My wife asked me why I was even pondering it, she said " just turbo it " . If I had 2 more turbo pistons sitting around I would have put them in already and moved on to thinking of fuel injection donor parts.
