turbo f4i

Hey everyone im new to the board and i was wondering if anyone has experience turbocharging the f4i engine? i have turboed my 01 f4i and hopefully i will have it running in the next few days. i had it running with a different turbo set up but the turbo was too small and it didnt supply enough air(chevy sprint turbo). now i have remade the manifold to accept an ihi vj11 turbo from an 89 probe gt. according to the math this is the turbo i need. 9psi should give me around 150whp. just wondering on everyones thoughts or experience with turbogcharging this bike.

Re: turbo f4i

Check with the engineering colleges in your area to see if any are doing the Formula-SAE (http://www.fsae.com/) competition. Many F4i turbo engines there.

Re: turbo f4i

If I didn't already have too many damned projects I'd keep my 929 and turbo it.

Cool project, would love to see some pics and hear how you dealt with the fuel system.

Re: turbo f4i

Those links do not work. You'll have to attach the pics. Non-supporting members have a 1mb attachment limit I believe.

Re: turbo f4i

I've built 5 different hondas, the lastest is the F4i which turned out nice! I built it so all the power can be used from 2nd gear on and even in first if you are a skilled rider. A blast to ride and it pulls hard! Yep, I may even sell it now that the GSXR turbo is done. I'm at turbocycle@aol.com if you have questions or interest in the bike.

GOD bless

Re: turbo f4i

ok, so where do I get info on this turbo thing. I think I finally found a use for the f4i. Maybe the wife won't even notice if I put a turbo on her bike. You think a turbo f4i would be faster than my 954?

Re: turbo f4i

I custom built this turbo kit so they are not for sale by a company. This type of turbo kit usually cost about 4000 to 4500. Buy the bike for a little more. Email me at turbocycle@aol.com
