Thread: Turbo jet, DIY

    Default Turbo jet, DIY

    So today my flat mate and I were a bit board so i grabbed an old stuffed turbo off my self and handed it to him and said "hold this over the end of my exhaust." so I fired up the 3.8L commodore and on idle the tiny Subaru turbo spooled up instantly, whistling away. The I proceeded to give it a few good revs. the thing was pumping the air out!

    So we decided to head up to my dads place and fit it to my motor bike, the one I do burnouts on. I was doubtful it could spool it up, but I tried it anyway. well as expected nothing. Blew some air but wasnt enough to make any real boost. so the afternoon ended with this.

    No sound

    Any way, I was surfing the net tonight and just happened to come across these things called a "Turbo Jet" and that is what I plan to make! Progress will be slow as right now Im studying and I am converting my car to manual ( costing me $1500 and I haven't even started yet ). But all I need to buy for the jet at this stage is a LPG bottle and some fittings, you would be surprised what I have lying around!

    Here is someone else's build.

    So this will be something I shell chip away at!
