    so the benefit is quicker response with a blow through, and less lag w
    hat about turbo placement is there just no room in front, so the mr. t
    urbo kit is made that way for clearance i am not wanting to hit 250 h
    p, 200+mph or 8 sec, just enough to keep it near my cousin's 'busa (
    stock) and be tame enough to go stoplight to stoplight.Edited by: zookie

    there will allwais be a turbolag but you can do the best to minimaze it

    my blow through is totaly homemade and took me 2 vinters to get it runningnealy perfekt, modyfied turbo is from a merchedes diesel 2,3l.boost conektions/exaust/airbox in polished stainless stell. standard carbs.boostcontroled fuelregulatorand dumbvalve found on the net.fuellpump 4 bars from gpz1100 etc. etc. etc.and many ours in the garage,

    but the easy part is just ording at mr turbo (and be in the mirrow of the busa)[img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]

    History of the Mr. Turbo Bandit Kit.

    The kit is basically a GSXR kit that Mr. Hoffemiester designed when he owned the company. There was a guy in Lousiana that want a kit for his Bandit, which everyone knows has the same engine just a different frame. So, the GSXR kit was modified to fit. (spacers added to move the header farther out from the motor and wrap around pipe is longer is really about all)

    The system works very, very well. Especially with the Mukuni HSR carb.When I worked for Mr. Turbo, there were several people who just loved the system and they were all street riders. One draw back to turbocharging a Bandit is that the OEMclutch is small and will begin to slip with horsepower generated by more than 10 lbs. of boost, which will be necessary if you want to make 250 hp.

    Hope this helps.
