How'd you get around the rev limiter??? It seems you be hitting it thru the gears really fast.
Excellent question. Maybe he disabled it and now wears a D.O.T. approved stainless steel cup. (just in case the rear piston launches)

Will the innards of the engine handle all this extra load? Wishing you well.

I want one too. With that many ponies, can you pass a gas station?

+1 It looks great and does have the wow factor, but that's a lot of boost so I also wonder how long the lower end will stay together.

I guess it'll be a test of time to see what the stock crank & bearings can take.
(IMO, I give it less than 5K before it implodes the internals)

Yea and what about the rear end? The flange with the dampeners too.

I would be curious about the cost as well.

I had a couple of Turbo Sunbirds back in the 1980's...First one was an '84 I got used (abused), then a brand new '87 Turbo GT...Pontiac had to beef up the bottom end in those engines (1.8 liter in the '84 & 2.0 liter in the '87) to survive 8 psi of boost...Can't imagine a VTX holding together long under that, especially if the 15psi button is used...It'll be interesting to keep up with how this goes...Gotta bet that mod definately voided the warranty...

Hmmm.... gooood.... goood.... the dark side is strong in this one... hmmm goood.... goood.


:) Please update!!

Ooops... just one thing, if you work for the company, you could just say that instead of "I just got my bike back"... unless of course they just happened to use 'your' bike for all their advertising on their website? lol. It's not just 'close' to yours... it is yours... same sticker, shield, paint, wheels, etc.

Again, I don't care, but if you work or are affiliated with them, just come out with it rather than act like you're a consumer of theirs...
