He's gonna need a water activated EPIRB.
It'll probably be the only thing that survives.

If they can put a v8 in a bike, you can put a 4 cyl diesel in one. Chop chop!

True. Soon enough I'll partake in another project.

With what car manufactures are doing with four bangers these days, I thought it would be kick ass to pop a near 200 HP turbo four into a bike frame. Just imagine rolling up to a cbr 1000, doing the head nod, wait for the green, and leaving the dude not knowing whether to be more stunned or embarrassed.

a couple of the motorcycle manufacterers played with turbos years ago. part of the problems back then were turbo lag. with much better turbos being made now, and many bikes haing EFI instead of carburetors, i would like to see turbos making a comeback on bikes.

kind of like when Buick did the 1987 Grand national cars. when they went to a better turbo, intercooler and EFI, that car really waked up!

If all y'all keep calling engines motors I'm going to start saying clip all the time.

Not to sound too dumb, but what's the difference between an engine and a motor?

Engines run on fuel. Motors use current.
