heh... what T?@\7 said.

You don't really stretch a GY6, you just gotta make room for that bigger engine. Check out a GY6 and it appears "stretched", but take a closer look. The head cover of the engine is right up next to the frame cross member. You couldn't make it any shorter and have it fit the engine.

$1500+$700+$540= fail.

For that money buy a taida 232 complete engine and just run it.. if you aren't going 75+ with that, then a turbo build isn't gonna help ya a bit..
In real life, you'll figure out get that little cc engines don't really work well with boost.

i have my expectations for the build. a highway cruiser that looks good and funtions well. i already have plans for a bb kit with a cam and cdi. im on here to get help doing it not asking if i should. theres better ways to do everything but this is what i want to do.

As the old saying goes: "fast, reliable, and cheap- pick two"

No offense, but I don't think any Ruck can be an effective "highway cruiser". Bikes that small and light just get sketchy at speeds over 60. But if you want a good all-around stock-looking Gy6 swap that's reliable, try to get your hands on a low-mileage Genuine Buddy engine. They're shortcase and Taiwanese made. I see them pop up on Ebay now and then for under $300 bucks. You can always add EFI. Turbos are another story, I won't bother chiming in on that one.
