    For the turbo folk........

    Guy that does upholstery work for us also works full time for a local company called AeroCharger. He was telling me about their turbos a few days ago. They make a self contained variable-geometry turbo. Using it in various car/truck/ATV kits. Looks like an interesting little setup. Pricey little bastage though!

    Especially in this particular setup, it's a waste.

    I have one of these in the making now. Based on a 35 series turbo. not the same design , but the same principal. Still a bit away for testing mine as I have a 3076 and gtx3576 to try first. My ski should be fired up this weekend with the S/c back on to run the motor for couple of hours then the hull will be stripped again for the turbo conversion.

    On a ski, from the hit of the throttle your at 6k+ rpm, and exponentially increasing load until full hookup and then your atty full load. The VVT won't help much in this application due to the fact that engine rpm stays relatively constant due to pump slippage.

    the vvt turbo is a very good product(still not as powerful as other turbos) and in the application for a pwc would require complete rethinking. Power starts at below 2000 rpm and peak hp would be around 4500 rpm. It would require a different cam for the powerband and cavitation on take off would have to be controlled with standalone using different boost levels and or traction controll

    I know its a good product, in certain applications.. However, PWC's aren't one of them.
