Default Turbo Rincon

yea I said it.....Turbo Rincon. anyone tried, heard, seen pictures, or think about trying this modification??

there seems to be plenty of room near the power steering unit near the exhaust manifold. I suppose a garret 20mm would be ideal and the induction outlet could be fitted like the "steath snorkel", Ive seen on the web..the turbo induction inlet maybe 90 straight up with a K&N stack...

Power steering? Did I miss something?

Turbo is a wonderful Idea. After you figure out a way to keep the driver from getting cooked. Turbos get super hot. Might need an intercooler as well. Might want to get a turbo set up with minimal lag as well. With as many on and off cycles of the gas on trails and in mud holes the turbo lag would be hard to deal with. Might even be dangerous on steep mountain terrian. Will the Rincon head stand up to the positive pressures of the Turbo?

Other than that I say lets go for it. Throw some propane and NOS in there as well. Great Idea, can't wait to see the videos.[img]/CFIDE/scripts/ajax/FCKeditor/editor/images/smiley/msn/thumbs_up.gif[/img]

WindRock, I'm interested in hearing more about this power steering as well.

He means the fuel pump housing. It is very hard to turbo a single cylinder.. The biggest issue is the uneven flow of exhaust gas.. So to produce intake pressures evenly, and above atmospheric, would be negligible at best on this engine. Not to mention increased engine temps that would be seen, and the fact that Honda didnt design this engine to see excessive HP, not that you would even see much of a reliable even gain due to the uneven and sporadic turbo speeds.. I also like forged internals when running positive pressures from Super Chargers and Turbos.. Best used on the streets :-)

ive seen some grizzly vids were the turbo was placed near the muffler but to me that seems like you would look a lot of boost, however, the heat problem would be dealt with..

i love planting seeds and seeing if they sprout

thanks for the input

i feel like an idiot..i thought that the rincons had power steering because the little effort needed to navigate..

my friends grizzly will give you a workout but he doesnt have the power steering upgrade so with that being said, i now have to find someone who has power steering to see if its worth it..

ultratec...that mustang.....that mustang....no lie has been my dream for years....but i dont think that it is a 4valve, just 2valve, i would like to know if it has the cobra motor because saleen usually just modified the GTs.....still though, smokin hot car!!!!!

i have thought about this many times but, thought it would be easyer and more effeicant to ues a supercharger. as ultra stated the lack of exhaust pressure and as sunk said turbo lag, were the reasons i was thinking about a supercharger. even thought about an electric supercharger, but thay suck and only produce like 1-2 psi of boost.

The last concern I would have on the ATV (turbo wise) is the lag, because you arent really starting out with anything less than you already have. The main concerns would be the inconsistent turbo speeds, proper and consistent fuel management, and heat.

The only way I could see a supercharger would be electrically driven, unless you extended the crank :-).. Even than, the energy loss driving the SC would probably be greater than the gain of having it.

i have seen a turbo rhino and turbo rzr and they both ran quite well. garret the turbo manufacturer sells a turbo kit for a honda 400 ex that bumps its hp from like 27 to 50ish. if you can spend some money for the right parts,i dont see a problem with a turbo rincon. out west they have turbo kits for side by sides and a few atvs for desert/dune riding and have been very reliable.
