I mangled up my right side case when I tried drilling it out for the oil feed :headbashing: I have a spare lined up, but it's a pretty annoying setback.
On a positive note, the -6an oil return bung I'm using fits perfect right beside the base of the oil dip stick tube, and the aluminum cover welds pretty easily.

Why not try using the NCY oil cooler kit? There should be a fitting in the kit that taps into the GY6 oil supply to run oil through the cooler. I'm not sure about the pressure, but maybe if you route the turbo oil lines in series with the cooler.....

Instead of hijacking the OP's thread you can follow my progress on the build thread.

I got a couple of things:

To keep your kit competitive cost-wise, I don't think it should be much over $700. Why? Well there is a complete EFI kit for GY6 engines that is boost friendly and it comes preloaded with the proper timing and fuel maps to make optimal power with a turbo, and then the same company that sells that kit, also sells a proper sized small engine turbo. Granted it isn't bolt on, but the cost of the components (minus a header with a turbo flange) is under $700. Just saying that people may look elsewhere, and if they are really Google savvy, they will find what I'm talking about.

I don't mean to rain on your parade, but just letting you know now rather than having stuff in production and find out that you can't keep costs down to match what is on the market. Yes you will be the first kit, but people can find a way to do it differently, and cheaper.


Secondly: FUEL DELIVERY!!! There are 2 no no's when you have a carb'd motor and want to boost it. 1) Blow-through, where the turbo forces air through the carb. That will basically make the carb not work because instead of vacuum drawing the fuel into the incoming air, there is positive pressure pushing the fuel back in, thus the engine will not run. 2) Draw-through, where the carb is mounted directly in front of the turbo and the fuel/air mixture is drawn through the turbo. This will work, HOWEVER: you are now drawing atomized fuel into the turbo... The compressor blades are spinning around 100,000rpm or more (maybe less on this application, but still...) and tiny droplets of liquid WILL chew up the blades over time. I have seen it (someone put a water/ alcohol injection nozzle before the turbo and it chewed up the blades).

On top of that, a carb cannot be tuned well with turbo applications. Yes it works in drag racing, but that is because its fairly predictable cuz they are running WOT for a shot time. Most people here will want to run this around town, and such. Some have succeeded in doing that, but I don't believe it is easy.

I'm not saying its a bad idea, I'm just pointing out some important things.

Any thoughts? What were your plans for the whole thing? MOAR DETAILS!


:popcorn:

pressurized carbs DO work.

draw throughs can also work. they have specials coatings for the turbine impellers for draw through use.

I would bet the answer is no. If I finished this I'd be excited and posted. More likely something went wrong that ended with "FUCK THIS SHIT" :headbashing:

Noble effort all around though.

I would be completely in on this, even if I had to spend a little bit more to buy a full EFI kit. I would prefer a kit for $750 for the turbo kit, but if it had to be $1100 with EFI that could work too. I'm starting my gy6 swap in the next 2 months so hopefully this will come along soon. Keep me posted. I'll shell out the money first.
