07 R6r turbo

I know it's been done once or twice but I plan on putting a turbo (off a 2.0) on my r6r. I know the turbos a little big and I know my r6 already has a relatively high compression ratio. I don't plan on racing or stunting the bike but I do think a turbo r6 would be the shit. So far I have a Garrett turbo w/waste Gate turbo xs blow off valve odds an ends piping. I will fabricate the headers myself. I also plan on getting turbo timer, controller meth/water injection, and possibly an external waste gate. Looking for any info or help not looking to answer why I don't just get N r1. as far as the turning idk if my best option is power commander and auto tune or haul it to the shop and have them dyno it.

Re: 07 R6r turbo

well look at it this way. A 140hp R6s might last 15-20 races before a complete tear down is required. (a very generous service life)
Not sure why you think you need a turbo timer... these bikes do not like to idle and adding a turbocharger to lubricate... Id suggest getting a YEC oil pump and crank up the idle.
But thats the very least of the issues youll have.
Become familiar with rebuilding the rotating assembly because you will be in there pretty often when you start adding boost.

Re: 07 R6r turbo

oh yeah and don't forget a big fat intercooler, yeah buddy!, I think its a waste of money but that's just me, the way it is now is fast enough for me to kill myself so imagine with a turbocharger.

Re: 07 R6r turbo

why would u have to rebuild it if you were only running like 4 psi? im sure it would take away at the life of the motor but not that much.

Re: 07 R6r turbo

Interested because I have thought about this. Friend had a turbo r1.

my two cents.. Why bother with the turbo timer and EWG... Turbo timer = useless, just idle the bike for 15-30 seconds after you stop.. and why get an EWG when you already have an IWG ? You realize there is not a lot of room down there...
