    TURBO GPSHO converted conversion

    After having a blast with my GPSHO conversion and running a best of 96mph, I figured it was time to step it up, or attempt to at least. I decided to convert the ski from being supercharged to a custom turbo setup.
    First and foremost I have to thank my good buddy Jesse Gonzalez, who does all my custom fabrication and always has his hands in my projects. I have to say, he outdid himself on this one so far. He's by far one of the most naturally talented guys I know, and a great friend to have in building this project. I have to thank Ben from Ben's Performance Plus for all the help he has been in setting up the hull, and the continued support he has provided me with. A big thanks to Josh here at the GreenHulk as well as Jerry for a website that provides not only an avenue of knowledge for us all to share on, but support on parts he provides and sells in the store. I've met a handful of guys on here that I now consider friends and probably wouldn't have had as much interest in it as I do without this site and those guys.
    In short, the turbo kit was completely custom fabricated from Jesse, the motor was built by my good buddy Brad Mattei, who builds all my turbo race bike motors for me as well. His knowledge and expertise in making these type motors live under some harsh conditions definitely was a factor in my decision to go turbo. We went with forged pistons, Carrillo rods, valve train upgrade, his portwork and freshened the motor from top to bottom.
    I had another topic but it got overloaded with all the supercharged setup so I figured I would create a new thread, exclusive to the turbo. I have some pictures that I had taken during the process and I'll update the photos and progress as it happens.
