Question on Turbo for Revolt..

Hey guys.... Can anyone tell me what would have to be done to my revolt engine to handle a turbo?


Can you run a turbo on a stock engine?


Mike is Putting in new pistons and rings in mine right now and I have a Big gun fuel programmer also....What else is needed?


I'm new to the whole turbo thing, so be nice.. LOL

With a turbo the Big Gun programmer is not needed or even wanted. The turbo pistons are usually installed to go from 11.5 down to 9.5 to 1 compression. This is to avoid engine damage from the extra cylinder pressure from the turbo boost. You also need the turbo exhaust valves to take the extreme heat from the extra air and fuel being burned. The fuel injectors are also changed, map sensor, ECU, intake plenum, turbo assembly installed with intercooler, boost controller, exhaust system, intake system, gauges, clutch weights and the list goes on.

People think that all you have to do is bolt on a turbo and go for it. If it was that easy everybody would have one! The Weber parts are what make the swap expensive. Its cheaper to change over a Honda Civic. The extra power and torque are worth it though. You can always just go Frogger style and put on the juice bottle. For about $600.00 you can go online to Dyno Tune Nitrous Systems Kits and buy part no. 616 and upgrade to the 5 lb bottle and get an extra bottle because you'll need it. You get 18 hp and 34 hp jets standard with the kit but Frogger got the 45 hp ones that he is using now. He also got a 3rd bottle because he needed more. Then in a drag race you can keep up with the turbo boys but not beat them! Then you'll have to figure out how you want to set up your clutch. for na or nitrous? That becomes an issue.

So......someone that has done this, post up what you did or what ou had to change (like clutching, etc). And ow it was plumbed. I'm interested in this option because where I need he extra power is right at the top of Patton Hill! :-)

Re: Question on Turbo for Revolt..

Are you asking about turbo or nitrous? The turbo required changes have been posted on this forum in the past 2 years many times. The Dyno Tune nitrous kit comes with all the instructions and can be installed in 1 Saturday afternoon. It does not come with clutch weights because it is a universal kit. You would have to buy a set of weights from the aftermarket and figure out what you wanted to set up the clutch for. You can't set it up perfectly for both na and nitrous so you'll have to do 1 or the other or go in the middle.
