124" with turbo?

So everyone knows I cant leave well enough alone

Considering putting a turbo on my 124 10.8 compression not sure if that is too much for a turbo build, ill have to change the cam up as well..

temping since I like the turbo on my other bike please need to change it up a bit..

Anyone do this before? Pros / Cons?

The thought of blowing a 124" motor just makes my heart sing. Please, Please, Please make this a reality.

I've also been thinking of putting a turbo on my 124. It's at 10.8/1 also. Spoke to Trask and Aerocharger and they both said it could be done but would have to run less boost. They both recommended their larger turbos for a 124. I was wanting something that could just be bolt on but to do it right I would need to tear down engine to change out pistons to get the compression down where it should be. Not sure I want to do all that. Definitely interested in your results if you decide to follow through with this, might make me rethink what I'm gonna do.
