Turbo Build Questions

Im about to kickoff a turbo build on my K1 1000. I am hoping to get some advice from guys who have gone down this path. Like what kind of power these stock motors can handle, fuel system mods and electronics. I have most of the big stuff out of the way...Turbo, exhaust manifold, intake plenum, wastegate, bov, boost controller and the aem wideband controller is in the mail I just wanted to get some input before the undertaking

Make an intro in the new riders section ... def post pics

I'm about to start ordering turbo parts too

what size/brand turbo did u get? I know ur k1/k2 cases are strong af but I'm not sure how many lbs of boost u can run on stock internals, my guess would be no more than 5-6lbs ... are u doing anything block/head wise? I know ull be needing stronger clutches and some sort of fuel mapping. I've heard from a few dif pple that the power commander 3 is the best for boost. I obviously needa do a lot more research and quit bullshitting

I've been trying to decide if I wanna piece my turbo kit together or just order a whole kit from turbokits.com ... the perk to them is everything is year model fitted and comes with pre tuned pc3 and a clutch kit. I also wanna build my motor b4 boosting it ... my goal is a safe tuned like 300rwhp on like 15lbs tho

Got a mind that a map wouldn't find

I've heard magic number to keep HP at or under on stock motor is around 240.

Hey Extreme, thanks for the welcome and the subtle pic request. lol. I was making up class hours yesterday and the internet saved me. Ill post some pics of the bike and current components tomorrow evening when I get home. I plan on keeping the boost levels relatively low on the stock motor, maybe 7lbs (I believe thats the lowest spring i have for the waste gate.) Im going with a thicker cometic head gasket and some stronger studs. Im running a turbo I got from a friend Im really not sure what it is. Its a T3 and the compressor looks to be about the size of a mitsu 20g (maybe a tad bigger)

7 lbs is kinda a lot on stock internals imo

if ur going with a thicker head gasket itll change ur compression a good bit, depending on what size. just make sure ur tuner knows what u got going on

id suggest either a cometic or an rc performance gasket with ape head studs.

from what ive read up on, ur gonna burn ur oem clutch out in no time, so u may wanna look into that too. i just bought the drag pak clutch kit from riders discount here, check into them too bc they give discounts for R members and are nothing less than outstanding in all areas

i just bought my kit too

stiiiiiiiill waiting on pics
