    Welcome Jerry with the 1997 turbo Blackbird.

    May I extend my sympathy.

    Looks fantastic.... Can I ask what turbo has been fitted ?
    Was it a kit or something you put together your self ?
    What boost are you running ?

    A turbo bird on stock brakes now that's scary :eek:

    My mate runs a turbo at 230rwbhp (at the last count) he doesn't like the fuel consumption much :eek:

    Jaws, I got the exhaust manifold,boost hat for intake and the intercooler from Graham over in the UK. Chinese turbo that's lasting a good long time. I put it together my self and then took over to a guy here to dyno tune it. 217hp on 7lbs of boost 12lbs of boost enough :)

    Nice to meet you Jerry, Mine didn't have one either I had to buy it......

    Well it's a heavy bike..... heavier with turbo.
    What's the axle stand for beside the box with BALLS on it:D

    Stranger still why has the 'Balls' box been fitted with handlebars?:confused:

    What have you done with the real Mr. Beaker?o_O

    Boost starts right around 2700 rpm. Small turbo=fast spool.

    That's alright I'm thick skinned. The "Balls" tool box is actually Chicago Bulls, basketball.

    Blimey ! That is incredibly low..

    What was the difference between 7 lb and 12 lbs of boost ??
