    You don't have the same engine...

    You have a injected, 1200cc, 2 stoke, 3 cylinder...

    The MSX 150 has a forced induction, 750cc, 4 stroke, 2 cylinder...


    Worlds apart...

    Ok that's a little better...

    However...it's a 2-stroke...and while I have heard of diesel 2-stroke locomotives it's just not a very effective way of powering a 2 stroke motor...It could be done but I don;t think the gains you'd get would be anywhere near the kind of gains you see by going to forced induction on a 4-stroke...

    Besides you'd have to fabricate up a way to feed the turbo from the exhaust (custom manifold), fab a bracket for the turbo, probably want a IC given the rpms and heat these things produce, need a different intake manifold, different air intake, etc....(essentially, where you're intake side is now currently 3 seperate entities you'd need to come up with a way to feed all three from a common one (that would be coming from the IC which would be fed from the turbo)...Not to mention you'd need some type of remote oiling system for the turbo as 2-strokes use a mixture of oil and gas that not only combusts but also serves as the primary engine lubricant...This would never work with a turbo...

    In essence, lots and lots and lots of time & money for probably lackluster gain (gain:dollar spent ratio would be through the roof)....




    IMO - Better off to just convery your DI MSX140 to a carb'd format (new electrics, head, domes, carbs, etc...) and slap on a set of triple pipes...

    For lack of a better way to put it...adding one pipe and one carb per cylinder on a 2 stroke is somewhat like adding forced induction to a 4-stroke....(not in absolute terms but this is the simplest way I can think to explain it...)

    A turbo'd 2 stroke will provide insane power gains. There are 600cc snowmobiles running around that run 13ish lbs of boost w/ a modified stock tuned pipe, that are an honest 200hp! Tuning is very critical, and is very tough to get right. You'd have the problem of liquid cooling the turbo in a ski, where in a snowmobile, it is just air cooled. You'd need some serious resources at your finger tips to get it right. FWIW, there are turbos out there that have a self contained lubrication system.
