....it has to run out of gas at some point. :) Though at 16psi it will probably get 3 rear tires per front tire change.  ;D

....been a little while, but wanted to post a small update. The turbo is quite a bit faster than the old SC set-up, and it is just a monster in double digit boost figures. Lowered the bike about 1.5", and went +2/-1 on the stock gearing (19/39), and set the boost to ramp from 8psi to 13ish from 8K-13K rpm..... and it still takes flight in 3rd gear. For probably one of the few times in history, the speedometer is actually pessimistic by a few percent in the video.

When it's all said and done, I want to go land speed racing in Texas with it next year. On the to-do list before March is building a slightly longer arm with a built in air/water intercooler. Going to be a busy winter.....

Bike has a stock shift light you can set from 10K - 13K... though I never remember to reset it every time I disconnect the battery. Honestly, it's pretty hard to notice anything on  the dash when you're giving it hell.
