Yo what happened?!?! I've been reading this fukin big ass thread like the bible and it just dropped off?? Any progress yet? Dang I wish I could see this end, anyway quick question, I got my own turbo bike project I'm workin on, its an old school Yamaha, xs850 cafe style, just wants to know more on this thermo expansion stuff you were talkin about, I was ready to weld my headers up and teh plan was to have the snail right under my ass shootin straight into the engine, now I feel like I got it all backwards and I gotta figure how to mount it right off the header, which probably means a second oil cooler to cope with the turbo heat, how much more efficient is it to have the turbo 6 inches down the exhaust vs 3 feet??
Anyway I hope you get the ambition back to finish this, I've been goin through hard and depressed stages of puttin this together over the last year, it always helped to hear some bikes spool up on YouTube, but what really got me kickin again was to watch some punk ass kid race my same bike out on the 1/4 mile, ran 13 sec stock, but talkin to him in the pits I realized he was a complete moron and got a lucky buy when he bought the bike, now he thinks he hot shit and I wanna finish this before they close the strip for winter so I can put him in his place!
Best of luck
