Hi

This is my first post and I'd like to introduce my fireblade turbo project.

I bought this bike about a month ago and it was already registered for turbo, but turbokit was sold.

The condition when I bought it

First of all I disassembled almost whole bike and the engine.

I've ordered new main bearings on the crankshaft and on the connecting rods, and JE's low-compression overbore pistons. They should arrive on week 3 and then I could assemble the engine.

Garrett T25 and fuel-pump

Now I have assembled that empty engineblock and going to make axhaust manifold

I upload photos to p_superstr/Blade - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting as I get further with this project.

Dont mind about my lousy english please :)

nice project.

I like people who do their own work on their bikes.

That bike will raise hell when finished. Its a big turbo though.

I guess it will lag a lot and then rocket the power at higher revs...

Sweet looking bike and nice colour.

keep us posted.

T25 is on the small size for cars but considering you are working with less then 1000cc I think it is going to be too big. May want to look into a smaller turbine side. Your saving grace may be the RPM. Your bike turned over twice the RPM of the cars that turbo is used on and you do not really expect to make power on a bike below 6 grand anyway so you could be OK. If not just use a nice N2O shot to help get it spooled! lol

The project has been at halt for christmas and new years eve but I'm still waiting for the pistons to rebuild the engine. Now I'm working on the exhaust manifold and turbo.

I have to turn the compressor side and remake that bracket for wastegates actuator.

I will post some pictures and meansurements when I start building plenum.

Why do you want to get pistons, If you can buy a .07inch head gasket ( from mc-xpress or a custom cometic). It will decompress enough, for a t25.

The money off the expensive pistons, and with a little extra cash you can use that for the very expensive carrillo conrods. So every thing will be save, or do both ;)

What fuel pump are you using, or going to use.? I have a Finish sit for you. proboost.fi maybe you already know this site...


I will be watching this project site.

I think the forged pistons are more durable for turbo use and of course more cubes with 2mm bigger bore. :) I already have thicker gasget (cometic) mut now I can use thinner. Maybe next winters project is to change rods and add more boost if I get this one working well.

I'm using MSD fuel pump (The bracket needs some finishing and paint)

and Malpassi fuel regulator

Yes I know that proboost and I have adorned some Mr. Kelahaaras works.

Oh 2mm overbore thats nice,

If got the same malpassi fuel regulator, Im using a IHI Rhb5 vi74 turbo comes off a Isuzu 2.8 Diesel trooper. Dyna2000 ignition, but i need to collect some more items, like the intercooler, header and plenum, headgasket, goodrige feed and drainlines, oil one way valve,fuel pump, and mocal remote oil filter. So it will take a wile when ready.

Do you know how much liters the fuel pump pumps more or less than 150liters? under > 1bar pressure...

The turbo looks awfully close to the tyre.
How close does it get when the forks compress?
Looks good. Have you fired it up yet?

Sorry. It's a while again of my last visit on this board. That one picture where turbo looks to be too close tyre is taken when forks are pulled as down they get. So that is tightest position as it goes.

I havent got plenty of time to build my bike but here is shrot video about few test drives.

YouTube - turboblade test

Dont mention about those shemale things because my brother has uploaded that and thats why there are tags like that.

You can hear the turbo spool up a little but not when it's going down the road; could be a good sleeper bike. lol

Your brother worries me.

When I get the plastics over the bike the only thing which notices about turbo is that short exchaust and sound.
Maybe it's a such a sleeper... I hope so :)

Looks like you did a great job especially considering it is hand made. What did you do about the tunning and do you have any idea how much power its making?
