    I can’t imagine why anyone would turbocharge an original four cylinder engine, that’s like putting lipstick on a pig. You can do it but I don’t believe the engine will last long.

    Dave, lets put lipstick on the engine and turbocharge the pig. It makes more sense and just imagine how fast you could get bacon to your house.

    oops .. I accidentally deleted my own comment .. lol … this goes in between Paul’s comments

    But sometimes you just gotta try putting the lipstick on to see how the pig looks and how fast it will run … well, I might have lost the metaphor at the end there …

    What effect would turbo have on a long stroke motor? I guess it’s a question someone had at some point.

    whether practical or not (maybe it doesn’t work at all??) I think it looks really inventive.

    I’m a huge turbo enthusiast and you can make them work on almost anything.
    I agree with deilers and I commend the adventurous soul who, LONG before turbos were “it”, put this little set-up together. 🙂
