My Turbo Build
09/14/14 7:35 PM

So I though I would document my turbo build here...

Little bit of back ground.

Brand new '10 roller frame and plastics with a used (rebuilt) 08 engine.

Bike didnt run all that well so i decided to reflash the bike. Turns out I had an 06 ecu with 08+ injectors... With some assistance from romans my 06 ecu was reflashed to an 08.

Shortly after that i decided to slap romans turbo on my bike...

The bike ran amazing right up until the day i did a leakdown test. Cylinders 1,2,4 were at about 20% loss and #3 was close to 60%

Yet it still ran great (lol)

Strip down began...

Head off... What do we find? #3 wall bought the farm

Cooked piston is on the menu tonight... And a huge WTF... Piston in backwards... Rings welded to piston at incorrect angle *sigh*

Bearing look brand new... Rods not so much...

Clutch was "well done" as well... New plates ordered!


Thanks to the service manual things were going very smooth ....up until i came across the screws that hold on the transmission blocking plate thingy... Screws are made of fine soft french cheese.... No match for my drill though!!

RE: My Turbo Build

Im about 1-2 weeks away from being complete so i am really excited to get her back out on the road!

The parts list to date...

- Used Engine Case, replated
- Wossner Rods
- Wossner Pistons
- Carpenter Valve Springs
- MTC Lock-Up Clutch
- 06-07 Injectors
- Muzzy Oil Plate
- OEM crankshaft bearings, OEM rod bearings, misc nuts and bolts
- OEM clutch pack
- OEM Head Gasket
- Brocks Clutch Springs
- misc tools
- Engine Heading cleaning
- New 44T rear sprocket
- 12 lbs boost spring


Biggest expense was for bearings, nuts and bolts, and misc tools.... Probably 1/2 the cost of the project.

The Ricardo det problem.

2006 = richer than 2008 injectors.

So if you had puddling and she goes boom with the 2008's imagine the puddle with the '06.

And look at that det off the cylinder wall. At peak TDC that bang happens there and look at where it began to peel. So say peak peel as it eats more off the wall.

I had exactly the same problem when the frost plug blew out and dropped the fuel pressure by 4psi, heard it det even with my helmet on, got out of the throttle immediately but that wasnt fast enough when giving it some! det damage was about the same 6 areas where i could see the rings(on three pistons and det damage to 0.199mm into the cylinder wall.
Decided on second hand cases.....etc etc.......
Did you hear it det?

Well the engine is complete. 20 hours later lol

All went smooth except for the shift shaft install and the camshaft install ( which were a total fucking bitch to do)

Hopefully i will have the engine back in tomorrow.

Ending up selling the bike shortly after completing the build. Ran great but the fuel pump blew up. I was tired of working on the bike so I sold it to Romans. Not sure where it ended up. Curious to know what happened with it.

Just finished installing my RCC turbo kit this weekend for my 2014 14R. Awesome kit and a relatively easy install!

I plan on doing a dyno session at RCC sometime in the spring just to confirm everything is operating properly. Should be putting out about 250 at the wheel.

Still have to install my gauges, install oil pump cover, and do clutch springs. Should be done this weekend. Ill post up more pictures soon.

Only 4 more months until I get to ride it lol

On the clutch springs, don't worry about the lever being too stiff. I have HD clutch springs and it's only a little tighter in the lever.
