Home Made Turbo KIT Progress. Pics

So i hacked apart the turbo exhaust manifold that I had for the 1000 turbo project to fit into my 750. I chopped up a stock header i had lying around and spliced the ends of it to the manifold ends.. Worked out pretty well. The turbo itself is so massive I may need to extend the manifold 3 inches at the flange to clear the rad. I only have it mocked up to my old 600 motor so its hard to tell at the moment.. Its gonna be tight.

I ordered oil feed and return lines along with a manual boost controller today also. I T'd off the oil pressure sensor for the feed. Not sure yet where im going to put the return.

I still need to order a blow off valve, wastegate and a boost guage and im good to go. In the process of fabricating an intake manifold now, ill post pics when its done. So far this turbo project hasnt cost me more than 500 bucks.

This going on a stock 1000 motor? How much boost do you plan on running?


My buddy just blew is 02 Turbo 1000 up, he had 12PS1 when it went. It did last for 20 thousand miles.

This is going on a stock 750. Im not gonna run more than 5psi. Maybe next year ill get some turbo low comp pistons and go with more boost. If I get 170hp ill be happy for now.

My only concern so far is with the turbo itself. Its a T3 so im not sure how it will behave on the bike. Its supposed to start spooling at 2400rpm on a 2.0L 4 banger, so I hope the high revs of the bike make up for the shortage of displacement... I paid 150$ for it so I just couldnt pass it up...

Im going to run a 50mm wastegate to keep the turbo in check if it does decide to spool properly. Worst case scenario, its not gonna spool up and Ill have to get a smaller turbo.

My oil lines came in the other day so I decided to throw them on. I ran the oil return to one of the plugs on the side of the motor. The kit did not come with a screw that would plug into the motor and the return line, so we ended up drilling out the original plug and welding it onto a screw that came with the kit.

Here is the screw that came out of the motor.


And here it is already welded to the other screw that came with the kit.


This is where the screw came out of and where I ended up feeding the oil return. If anyone sees any problems with this area please let me know..it seemed like a reasonable location with no oil pressure..



Wide shot...

I don't know about on a bike and how it works, but I know on my old talon that turbo didn't have like no lag.

You should be good as far as the lag is concerned I would think

Because the displacement is less than half, is why im worried about it. But im hoping the high revs of a bike motor will make up for that. No one on here has a turbo that large on a bike so its hard to say what will happen. Ill just have to find out first hand and share with the world.

I will be waiting for the results! be nice to see what the total price for you to finish the project was.

BTW. NICE JOB SO FAR!

Hmm, the oil return looks a little funny. At least from the angle the pic was taken. It is always at a down-grade, right?

P.S. A scavenger pump for the oil return wouldn't be a bad idea (wheelies, hard cornering, etc.)

Its about as down as it gets. The only lower point on the motor is the oil drain plug.

Thats the plan.

I just found a guys bike online with a t3 that has very similar specs to my turbo. Mind you its on an old 1100 running 18psi at 270HP. But this is good news for me

as far as lag goes I think with the size of turbo your running your going to get a lot. I had a T20 on my 750 and it didnt kick in till about 6500 and thats a small turbo. but even with lag you still have a turbo on it. if you need any help just let me know I have turboed a few bikes and I have a few pics of my last one if you want them to help out.

This sounds like its going to be awesome, not because its a turbo 750 but because your experimenting and building it yourself! kudos to you man! Im leaving in 24 days to a school in Burnaby, BC to take a motorcycle mechanics program so I hope to learn alot and get a job working on bikes when I get back. Hope I could think something like this up one day! good job and keep up with the updates

Pics would be nice. How much boost did you run on your 750 and how much hp did you get out of it. If I can get this thing to spool up by 8000 ill run it. Just shy of 200 at 6psi is kind of what I'm aiming for.

I was running 6psi. but I could never get my waste gate to work right so it would fall off to about 4psi at about 10k. If your doing a nice external wastegate you shouldnt have a problem. It ran about 150hp on a 03 750. but you should see somewhere around 170-180 if the wastegate is working right on a newer 750

is that a velocity kit? Looks good. Doesnt really show where you have your oil return hooked up though. I need to rethink mine. I dont think its going to work out so well this way without a scavenger pump. (any ideas on a cheap one?) Here is how i plan on running the charge pipes.

there is a plug on the left side of the motor that is right behind my rad hose in the picture and you can barely see it but that is what I used for my feed line and for the return I just drilled a hole in my oil pan and used a fitting. Just make sure that its above the oil level in the pan or its gunna run back in the turbo. Are you running the pipe up through the air duct?? When I was looking at doing this to my K7 I think that was the only way it would fit

So i could just tap the pan way up high? that may be a good idear....

Yes the plan is to run it through the ram air hole in the frame. Looks like it will fit, but I wont be sure till I try it. Does your kit utilize the stock air temp sensor? Got a pic of that?

Mr. Turbo seems to make a cheap mini scavenge pump. Bout 90$. I'll go that route if im not satisfied with the end result of my pluming.

yea thats the way velocity does it. It doesnt have to be at the top just enough to where its not below the oil level when the bikes running

So the turbo project is officially over for this bike. It was stolen last night. The only satisfaction I have is that the thief stepped in a giant pile of great dane dog shit before riding off in it.

Man that freaking sucks. I know you spent a lot of time and money in that! Do you think you might have a chance getting it back? What about insurance on anything?
