Air Fillter will have to be piped away from its current position probably will end up behind the rear footrest.
Dave is looking to get 150HP at the rear wheel.
And yes of course you need one.

Crust I will do better next time with bigger pics and when it runs I'll post the dyno chart thingy.

So you're emigrating to somewhere it never rains?

any clues to the internal mods question? conrods etc.

please lose the 'form over function' gallery, I feel seasick.

It looks good - I would say I need one, but I am waiting for a supercharger for mine.

I agree with Rob about the gallery - I couldn't get it to stay still long enough to have a good look.

Extremely surprised.......

......at the turbo location. I was always under the impression turbos worked better if the exhaust tract was as short as possible - helps turbo spooling up? Long exhaust tracts even with a small turbo (to aid spooling up with exhaust gases) will mean some turbo lag.......

Mind you, lag can be fun......nothing happens then POW! Houston we have lift off. Suggest you run fully on a rolling road to see what the power delivery characteristics are before taking to the road!

Have you lowered the compression ratio? Turbo engines are low comression high output.....detonation - engine destroying itself are common is compression ratio is too high.

Best of luck
Mark

Seems appropriate that the 'fotoPlayer' is ridiculously over-engineered
