Turbos on my mind.
Does forced induction appeal to anyone else? I have been looking at different "kits" and RB Racing's appeals to me the most. Having a huge turbo seems to make the most sense to produce the most amount of boost possible at the low rpms our Harley motors run. The huge intercooler makes sense too. Why would you hamper the flow? The thing that is not so fun about turbos is the cost which makes it cost preventative for me at this time which means let's talk about them and learn as much as we possibly can. I like the idea of running 9:1 compression with the ability to get up to 250 horse power or more. Is it necessary? Don't be silly, of course it is!
Is there a spot off the motor that will feed the turbo's bearings? The sending unit it the only spot I can think of. Would one of the plugs from the motor provide pressurized oil?. How about a place for oil to return to the motor?
Tuning this type of system appeals to me as well. Can it all be done off of two injectors or would secondary injectors be a better idea. Are there tools in the tuners that increase the amount of fuel corresponding to boost or is this something that has to be figured out cell by cell? There is a lot of this that appeals to me. I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to put all the pieces together but it sure would be cool to get the chance. Take care and I hope I'm not the only one this appeals to.
