    Gzk's 15F turbo build

    first sorry for my english i'm french .
    i'm planning to build a 15F turbo , i already make many car , motorcycle turbo conversion . i'm work on make chiptuning too , so the mechanical and electrical side are not problem for me . But i'm new on kawi pwc world , i own only yamaha before , so i don't know what already exist for the 15F engine .

    i want to know , if i keep using the 15F engine , what low comp piston are avaiable ?
    are 250/260x piston are intercheangeable with 15F piston , or do i need custom head or cylinder plate to lower the comp ?

    i don't project to build a hp monster , it's juste for fun .

    my plan :

    sTX 15F hull 60 hours
    15F engine 5 hours since the last revision (everything new )
    custom build ss 2,75" exhaust uppipe 3,25 " water jacketed
    custom build ss 2,75" downpipe
    frozen boost "seadoo like " intercooler
    custom build alu 2,5" charge pipe
    4 Pink Sti injector (635 cc)
    Aem 320 lph fuel pump
    Fuel pressure regulator
    skiline R34 turbo (ceramic turbine wheel and axle for low lag ) @ 10 psi
    Aem FIC Pwc serie for piggyback fueling and timing .
    2,5" Blow off
    boost gauge , o2 gauge etc...

    if someone can help me for the missing information it will be very cool .
    i will keep you informed about the project asap .

    9.5:1 has proven to be a very safe pump fuel ratio and isn't to crappy off boost.....
    a nice head upgrade valve train , springs,retainers,collets,valves etc
    personally I would run a good set of rods , and the few well chosen internal mods and your good to go. eg ( oil squirters , cc mods )

    and a stand alone ECU with accompanying ancillaries to provide correct fuel & timing control

    Just run a simple strong engine and it will be a nice strong rec ski

    Have a real good search through this site and the other one. There is a load of info in amongst the posts. If you find something that needs more explaining the are plenty around who have the knowledge. Crank case mod is an example.

    Good project
    Don't forget the hull parts ... Magnum pump is the way to go if you go high HP at least a bigger one.

    You can use a 2011 250 pump now for less money, not the same but another option.

    OK i'm looking for a used 250 pump
    does it bolt on or do i need some tweak to make it fit ?
    i have order and wait to receive : intercooler , alu piping , ss flange to make the turbo exhaust and manifold link , aem 320l/h fuel pum , sti pink injector and FPR . missing me the turbo some cooling and oiling line and fiting , and a good solution to lower the engine comp . i'm going to build a cilinder 3mm plate .
    i already have an haltech sprint standalone ecu but i don't know if i going use it , or go to a megasquirt or a aem FiC piggy back . i have to conside rmany think as we are in salt water in my country . i want to keep to stock gauge too . so i will see this part is not a problem for me .
    thanks for your help .
