    ^ That intercooler and waste gate are in a prick of a spot unless the rider has a really short right leg .

    Mine's (750EX) still tucked away in my brother's shed. Haven't seen it since I parked it there in '89 and he says it's too far gone now but I'll be the judge of that, one day.

    Maybe allowing for an obvious “upgrade”?

    Not sure about the under thigh turbo either. And the length of the plumbing implies some lag too.

    Huge chicken strips as well, kind of pointless turning a handling machine into a drag bike. To each their own I guess...

    Not necessarily if done right.
    Theres a few street cars getting around with rear mount turbo's (to hide the obvious mods from the po-po)
    ie, the turbo is mounted next to the rear diff housing. Youd think with over 6 m of piping it'd be a dog.... nup.
    If done correctly and the inlet and outlet sides are matched to the application, lag isnt an issue.

    I have a mate with a toyota cressida sleeper with a turbo'd 5.3 chev done that way. Scares the hell out of me.

    Oh cool, an exception to the rule :-) I wonder how much it costs to make the perfect sleeper?

    From memory, not a great deal, the turbo and rear mount intercooler (not big due to the cooling in the plumbing), engine management and injectors were the major cost. Standard diff apparently, but with a mini spool.
    The auto (old TH400) has a bit of work. The engine runs stock crank and rods, minor head clean up, roller rockers and different pistons. Its apparently around 800hp. Buggered if I know, as i said its scary shit fast, and I've been in plenty of fast cars. The 5.3 vortec? block is the perfect bore/stroke for turbo applications.
    I think the total build was under 30k. And if you saw it parked, you wouldnt look at it twice, and it actually drives nice if you arent burying your foot into it. Honestly looks almost identical to the one my (ex) father in law had to go to the golf club in.
