hamp I'm going to have to drive up there and borrow some of your toys. I need one of those bad boys.
to help you get from 0 to 55 in 1.5 seconds instead of 5 to 10 seconds.
i hear it gets them up to like 95 (with a slight tail wind) .. Sorry i missed your hello this morning.. how ya doing..
Hamp congrats on the homeland thing.. and a pleasant afternoon to all my buds.. Been watching mil channel, and had to give the tv up to Gloria for "one life, and General hospital".. you guys will have to put up with my company for a bit..
the Harley,I'm sure they have 'em
Yall ever heard of them?
these for my STI to replace the Garrett GT35R, this little guy will support up to 550 HP to the wheels. Currently I am about 500 at the flywheel so about 350 to the wheels, the AWD system in these cars really saps up the power. Of course I have to upgrade the fuel pump and injectors to support the turbo.
Lucky's talking about turbo charging his scoot.. you can of course.. intakes are pretty simple.. normally aspirated, (carb or FI) or assisted (supercharged or turbocharged).. The thing is that you only get so much improvement in cylinder head flow with the a push rod 2 valve Harley head.. you can hang a supercharger on an old flat head and it will obviously move more air.. but you dont get the big improvement till you change to multiple overhead cams and valves..
the heads are terribly restrictive. I saw a drag Harley running on nitro out at the raceway a few years back and it look like it flowed okay, it went like a bat out of hell but I am sure he had some top secret bad ass heads.
spyder,turbocharged from the factory,used the motors in rail dune buggys back in the late 60s,used to top them off with a 4 barrel carb,or my dad did anyway,i was a helper back then.Had a soft spot for turbos ever since,if they are tuned right it's instant bolt on horsepower,even if it goes on a Harley with stock heads
as opposed to superchargers that take a bit of power by being engine driven.. Yep sure remember the spider.. that was in the early days and they had a lot of lag.. that whole waste gate thing.. Remember how cool the dash of the spider was.. all engine turned aluminum.. or at least looked like it..
Yeah a turbo charger will always add power.. again even on an old flat head 45/74/80 but you dont get the HUGE beniffit with out being able to move all that extra air you now have at your disposal..
tend to be finicky at best, with carbs it is hard to keep the mixture dead nuts consistent so you gotta run them rich which hurts power but it beats the alternative, we all know what happens when you run lean.....POOF!
I'm no expert, but I figure if you increase back pressure slightly and increase intake pressure significantly, you are gonna make more power. I dont care if it's a poppin' johnny.
shit ya got me laughing again.. and before someone things im a dinasoure (wish the f'n spell check worked) i know they will always add power.. my only comment and it stands is to get the huge bennys in air flow you need to ALSO be able to move that air... ie valves gents.. all about more of them and how quick you can move em...
Lord love a duck whats a poppin johnny....
see ya all later..
Greg, shit son! That's the old John Deere tractors. 2 cylinder horizontal bore.
Tops out at about 400 rpm. pop pop pop pop pop.
40's and 50's models.
I'm a Massy Fergusson guy myself,do like them old tractors though.
i love turbos always did were would the world be with out them
