i finally found a turbo to start my project. now i just need to get the owner of it down to a rasonable price... so i can begin. it is a garrett gt1544 or gt15 as it is commonly reffered. it should hopefully be right around the perfect size.

Run a search on eBay for "ihi motorcycle turbo". Be sure to check the "Search title and description" box. There's an IHI VF-2 Turbo for $169 sold by Spooled Motorsports that looks like it would work great for what you're doing.

well i bought the turbo for $115. i alos won a intercooler on ebay for $48 to my door. *I have a power commander. but have no clue how to tune it. I currently have a cam, port and polished head and a custom highflow muffler. the turbo is coming soon. I was considering switching ot a doebek TFi programer because it supposedly has knobs right on it for tuning. How does hitting the nitrous juice effect your clutching.

I think something like the [url=http://www.jet4power.com/xcart/product.php?productid=16246&cat=249&page=1:2uaa3knb]Jet 4 Power[/url:2uaa3knb] would come in handy for tuning. Combined with an EFI programmer, you should be good to go. I think you might need to look into larger injectors and possibly a different fuel pump.

Also, when you add nitrous, I think you'll be eating belts. You can run without the CVT cover in a dry environment, but if you hit water or mud, you'll want the cover on. I'm sure you're going to have to tweak your clutches a bit. The HeelClicker kit should help out some.

which would be better to tune with a o2 sensor for a egt gauge...

I think the O2 sensor. You're going to get the mix ratio which will tell you a lot more then the gas temp.

O2 sensor.Be sure to get a wideband.EGT's are a useful tool but can be misleading.O2 will put you on the money.

BTW,unless you're a lizard with eyes that can look at different places at the same time and focus on the guage while bouncing around the trail also-------you need a datalogger .

You will need a wide band 02 sensor for sure. *I have done several conversions on car engines adding fuel injection, turbo etc and have found the wide band set up from Innovative to be a good choice. *It does come with data logging capability.

ok i have a ridge runner buggy that runs on the sportsman 800efi motor. i am building a turbo for it. how much fuel can the stock intank fuel pump support. how much can the stock injectors support. the turbo is supposed to make 7-8psi of boost with the lines plugged in and with teh lines unplugged 12-15 psi boost.
do i need a aftermarket fuel pump and regulator?
What diameter is the exhaust pipe at the collector on the end of the header?
How far away from the head should the turbo be for optimal performance? more questions ot follow...

I love those regulators. They used to come with extra springs for use up to 75 PSI. The last one I got didn't have them though.

So has anyone put together a turbo kit or parts list for the Ridge Runner? * I'm going to add a turbo to my 2007(800 efi full motor mods) Ridge Runner for a winter prodject. *One other quick question. Should the coupler between the tranny and rear diff be loose fitting, slides back and forth along *the length of the shafts?

Lift the backend of the RR off the ground so you can spin the rear wheels by hand. *With the back end up, I can slide the coupler back and forth from the diff to the tranny almost an inch. *Looks to me that it would wear out the splines in the sprocket and/or shafts.
