Fitted the rest of the seat plastics that arrived today from Cabbie Cool looks pretty good, will start some proper work on it at weekend when I've finished off the work I'm already on with Smile




Apologies for bad pics done with camera phone and shakey hand!

Hi Mate

Andy at Zorstec made them, he's done all my systems in the past 12 years now including all my turbo stuff, as for price you'd be better to speak to him.

Got to sort oil feed and return from Turbo (not a big issue) and then it's down to jetting, fuel pump, regulator and also a return fuel line to the tank, just dyno time then to work on the jets Smile

Got the bade back today, will put some pics up tomorrow coz it was too dark to take any by the time I'd remembered! Rolling Eyes Zorstecs done a nice job on the pipes as usual, did some work on the wiring to match it up to cabbies old seat unit and where he'd placed certain electrics.

Anyway pics tomorrow and looking forward to getting bits back from engineers to fit the rear wheel and tyre and get more done Smile

The bike looks like it's coming along nicely Steve but can i ask....
I was under the impression that when you fit turbos you need low compression pistons along with a long list of other strengthening products to ensure the engine don't go pop as soon as you open it up, has all this already been done?

Bill, LC pistons and strengthening products only required on turbo motors if your going to push the 10 psi and above, stock motors (in most cases) can take upto 7psi of boost with no mods to the motor, my own GSX1400 turbo runs 10psi of boost and has done over 4000 miles in the past 18 months including numerous dyno runs with no mishaps at all Smile it currently has 196bhp and 155 ft/lb of torque.

Got the wheel spacer test piece yesterday, friend cut it out for me in perspex so we could check all the measurments were right before going ahead and cutting the final piece in ally (saves wasting a big chunk of ally if anything was out!) couple of minor dimension changes and he can cut the final spacer now Smile here's the perspex one.
