yeah, you'd have to get a APE Cyl. and then resleeved, forged carrillo rods, notch the case to for rod clearance, serious head work, and a big wallet, oh and it wont be streetable, then a rear rim swap cause that 3.5" you got on there would get destroyed...lol

OK....Got quite a bit done this weekend

first was getting the couplers i got too fit, the plumbing couples are perfect for the 36mm carbs and my 2" outlets on my plenum, but they have to be modified cause there way to long


taking a hobby knife and following the inside clap recess makes them the perfect size



being that there 3/16 thick, a slight notch has to be made to clear the carb rack bracket that holds all four carbs together


and then they'll look something like this


Now for something that has nothing to do with the turbo setup:
i needed a few parts from the hardware store and they were closed so i couldnt do anymore on the build saturday night so i built another extended swing arm, i went 11" over, its still not done but thought id toss a few pics in there. i still have to make a lower brace, sleeving the extension pieces with 14ga sheet metal, oil catch can and battery box in it, yes the battery is getting mounted in the swing arm cause the turbo and piping took up all the room...lol





SUNDAY:

so today i hammered on it pretty good, got the turbo mounted where i wanted it, downpipe and exhaust done, and the mid pipe....so i got a full vance and hines supersport for sale if anyone wants it, cause im not gonna cut up an aftermarket exhaust.....





thats a jardine slip-on, was on my xb12s, fits the kat pretty good

Looking good! : I think the 11" stretch might be a little extreme, though. I don't think there is any way that you could get enough traction to necessitate an 11" stretch.

On a side note...Can you make a 5 in over swingarm for me?? Id like to widen it as well, to fit a 5.5 rear.

so this week made some progress, made the oil dump tube (.625" o.d./.560" i.d hot rolled tubing) Forming it sucked with a propane torch, but the end result was pretty good with minimal flat spots and no kinks. i think if i were to of packed the tube with sand i would have gotten a perfect mandrel, but im happy with it. its more than enough dia.





i had the flange cut at work on the laser

yesterday and today i painstakenly made the charge pipe. when you have two ports at different angles, different heights, and different diameters, and about a 4'' window of room shthings become a headache, but i managed to make it work even making a port on the pipe for the blow off valve...its super tight, everything has to slide in a certain way, and couplers need to go on in a certain sequense....not looking forward having to take it off again.....and again.







and a couple fitment teasers








im gonna hammer out on the swingarm this weekend, i made a awsome looking rear brake arm, but not gonna post it until the swingarm is done. wanna beable to take the swingarm to work on monday and shot blast it and have it powder coated in two weeks.......stay tuned
