Let me know
i like the duck tape and hose clamps on the intake tube
Me and a friend wanted to try that about 15 years ago, but We wanted to use a small turbo off of one of the old Honda Interceptor bikes they had back in the 80's.
excellent idea, except one thing. durability is a major problem. something about no oil in the turbo.
Can I mow the yard faster???
build a small resiviour to mount above the turbo so it gets gravity fed oil. I don't know much about turbos, at least the oiling part.
need a way to pump it back to the top without being excessively heavy, after all, we're only probably dealing with about 4hp here
The best way to make a 5 hp Briggs engine make some real power is to use an IC block with cast sleeve and roller crank bearings. Then bore it .10 over and use a Cal Kart billet stroker crank and a cam and lifter kit. A Tilotson carb with a UNI filter, 3 stage header pipe, aftermarket ignition, ported intake and exhaust ports, aftermarket larger valves and springs will result in a 20-23 hp engine that will smoke the tires on a kart.
hmmm... my buddy lives a mile down the road, and i drive there quite often. thought about picking up a cheap moped to save on gas. maybe a mini-chopper with one of these on it would be cool.
mmmkay, I think Corey needs to spend more time with his K5...
Back when I was younger I used to help a friend build his engines for his race kart it was pretty cool what they could do.
Genius until the head pops off and hits the guy standing over it.... Then, not so genius.
I really don't think there is enough air flow to get the turbo spooled up fast enough for any real power gains, yeah sure it spins now, but if you listen to it carefully, you really don't hear the whine a turbo usually puts out...
interesting idea, but would probably be better with a smaller turbo unit, and then i'd like to see the comparison of power ratings with and without...
Might have a new project for my buddys minibike It already does about 45, i bet it could use some more power. Seems pretty cool tho.
