Default very random turbo idea.

My friend has this thing for sale... It has been for sale for a long time now. I say lets turbocharge it with a small GT17. Good idea or stupid?

fyi I just love turbocharging random things... I had a turbocharged go-kart once, but the turbo was a really crappy cracked one and had no oil lines.... I was 14 and just learned to weld ****. It was fun for a week until it finally seized.

I wouldn't. It won't handle. And it would be pretty damn scary.

Build a Gixxxer kart if you want something fun and ghetto.
