    Well you can't really add a turbo. you'd need to replace the stock SC with a turbo.

    In the car industry SCs are smoother, turbos are more violent, a mercedes 230K gains 40 hp from switching a turbo in place of the SC, even though it's pulling the same boost.

    I know it has been done before in the car industry but it's a rather complicated setup that would have some hard time fitting in a ski.

    Hoss over on the riva board was talking about doing it.

    The guy who works on my ski wants to do it for me. He says that it can be done but I would first have to build up my engine to handle it. I believe him too, he's a genius with engines. He said it would only be a small turbo but it would make a whole world of a difference.

    Not sure exactly, moved to tampa for school and I have not been in touch with him for a while. I will email him and get the details to you as soon as I can. I think he is in Jamaica racing his 9 second subaru WRX, so the response may be delayed.

    hoss doesnt have a clue what he is talking about, he said his ski was faster because he could feel it in his shoulders and he claims an 02 sensor is the same as a temp sensor, but he has his own shop so he knows whats up...right??

    we can get more boost with les's new charger kits but how much more boost do you really want??
    15 psi on stock compression is race fuel only so with a turbo you are lookin at the same thing if not more boost,

    there is only so much boost a 3 cylinder engine is gonna take before it says no
