    Rumor has it that R&D is working on a turbo kit for the SHO as we speak.

    That's great, but can it turn?? This will be for recreational riders, and will be a simply to install kit. That's all I know, and its subject to change like the weather. He could just change his mind and let somebody else do it. There's really not that much profit in these things when you consider all the work done Vs. how many kits you can sell.

    Can a gpr turn???

    Uhhh, yup, they got that down.


    ...and eventually there will be turbo kits, and there will be a profit for the maker, and it will be bolt on... but this could be a year or two away.

    I hope your right, that would be good for all of us. The more units they sell, the more the price will drop. It just takes a lot of time and effort testing, and making parts, then remaking parts that didn't work, that has to be factored in somehow.

    I was being sarcastic about the "can it turn" remark. I have a dragbike, that can run into the 7's in the quarter mile, and it can't turn. Kind of a play on drag racing Vs. closed courses racing. You concentrate so hard on making something fast/quick, you forget about all the other aspects.
