I took her out for the first real, albeit small, ride today through a neighbors woods. Since I've been riding a banshee for 8 years, it's a whole 'nother world. The auto trans thing is going to take a while for me to get used to haha. It had more than enough pep to keep me entertained and had plenty of power to get through some super sloppy mud I accidentally found. So far I'm pleased
How about an HY-35? That would be alot cheaper Plus I have seen HX35's on 2 stroke sleds that worked, so a smaller hy35 should work on your wheeler.
You should be able to throw enough fuel at that little exhaust housing to get things going. That little 9cm exhaust housing lites yesterday.
Keep us posted, this is really cool.
I wish it were that easy. A hy-35 is HUGE for a 700cc diesel. A turbo compressor is sized to an engine based on lbs/min of air. To get lbs per min, first you calculate CFM by (cubic inch displacement X RPM)\3456. So for our 686cc diesel we get (42 X 3800)\3456= 46 CFM. 46cfm X 0.069= 3.2 lbs/min of air. If you google image a hy35 compressor map, you'll see that 3.2lbs/min at PR
2 (~15psi manifold boost) is wayyy in the surge region. The turbine is also way too large and would never spool with the limited rpms and displacement to work with. An IHI RHB31 or RHB32 is about perfect size wize and has plenty of headroom to work with on the 700D.
A good turbo sizing trick is to look at the OEM horsepower rating of the engine the turbo came off of. If you project has a 300hp goal, find a turbo from an engine with around 300hp. You can't slap a GT15 on and expect it to push out 300 hp. On the other hand, if you put on a GT55 off a 600hp semi motor, it would surge and run like poop.
Keep this thread going, once your build is done, i will make this a sticky as there are others out there with the diesels.
Once you get this a built, i would hope you become a sponsor and start selling a turbokit for the cats.
I certainly appreciate the offer! I definitely think I could make a couple turbo kits. Custom fabrication is kind of what I do for a living haha.
Wait a min......Is this the whitebread from tdiclub that makes exhaust systems??????
Darn it! I can't hide anywhere can I????
