Default Its being turbo'ed... and is weighs under 150lbs.

I was staring at my crap in the garage the other day, and while scanning across the mess, I saw one of my T2 turbos, and my ghetto go-kart... then I had an spur of thoughts... which made the standard equation...


turbo+go-cart=booossstzzz!!!1!sndkggfdgkj


so far, here is my progress



Edit: ****, I forgot I was in the DIY section, if this can be moved to the media section like I thought I was in, that would be super

haha omg YUS!!! How did you address the oil issue? Thats my next thing to tackle before I continue up with the welds and PVC intake piping...

I thought about boosting my dad's V-twin garden tractor... but he would be pissed.

that turbo was already shot... But we did look into using a fuel pump..didnt work, then we used a diesel lift pump and it worked great.

We later got a TINY TD03 turbo off of a kabota diesel in one of our toro mowers at work and started fabbing that up... we never finished it tho.

Well, if my T2 is not small enough to spool, that thing should do the job! Must be one hell of a scream tho at full spool... I would put that on my 4-cycle weed eater!

My neighbor wanted to sell me a kart frame on the cheap with disc brakes and stuff. Told her no because I can't fabricate nothing. If I knew how to weld. I'd do crazy **** like this though.
