    I have a gsxr 750 and want to turbo it, what turbo would you run on this engine? I will build the exhaust manifold and intake myself, just want to know where to start for a turbo.

    It will be used for dunes mostly (90%), and maybe a little power line running and there is a track locally that is 7+ miles (GP style) that we have permission to drive on.

    Thanks!

    Unless you want to do it strictly for entertainment purposes, I'd save your money, and spend it on a 'busa. You'll probably end up with similar power at similar cost, but the reliability and resale will be better.

    I bought the 750 for $750 complete and can build everything myself so i figure another 1000.00 and it could be done. Plus i just like the sound of a turbo. You cant get a busa for 2000.00 or less, and i already have the engine.

    You probably won't do a turbo for 2K either.The busa is the way to go and stay stock.More torque,more hp,more easily tuned/more durable,etc. Sell the 750 and spend the money for the busa.You'll be glad you did. IMO

    I would guess a Garrett GT 25 would be a good turbo for that engine.I have one on a 1000 cc engine.You can easily double your power you just have to use good race gas.

    A 25 will be too large for a 750.If you're really set on turboing a 22 would be a max. Then you get into different A/R's etc.If you're really serious give Garrett turbos a call. Let them set you up properly.

    Does the number correspond to cfm, cubic meters, or something else?

    Thanks for the suggestion MAUSTIN, i will do some more research.

    The question i asked was what turbo to use not which engine to switch to, we already have one busa and want something different.

    Just an approx size reference.Then you get into A/R ratios. To propeerly size you need the turbo map to start with.For most it will be best to talk to the pro's at garrett or whoever you prefer in order tp properly size the turbo.There is definately too big and too small. Neitheer will be good.
