Prior to riding this turbo Spree, could I be placed in the will for any spare parts of the Spree that would be left from the accident or laying around the house?

Although, I am willing to bet that turbo-ing the little sucker would probably melt the heads. but it might be a fun ten seconds. :lol:

Two stroke + Turbo = Does not compute.

Correct me if I am wrong, but how in the * would a turbo work on a 2-cycle engine? Does anybody know how a 2-cycle works and what a turbo does? (Rhetorical questions)

I would bet Vette76's mustang and the spree that any turbo you put on a spree the faster it would lock up and not even run. Any takers.......?

Turbo charged air behind a piston on the power stroke = Major loss of power. It works on a 4 cycle cause the valves hold the charge from the combustion chamber. The charged air is not sitting behind the piston.

Now maybe someone has designed a 2-cycle engine with a turbo, but please explain the physics behind it. Not that it was done.

As always, Good Luck!

oh steal all the fun. Geesh... Haha. But yeah. In essence a well designed expansion chamber will have the same effect as a turbo would have on a 4 stroker.

I would agree with that since the object to allow the gas out and the intake charge in is dependent on how fast the air can leave the jug.

now that u said all this and i thought about it more, what u said makes sense. i dont see how it would really work after u pointed this out. i know there are some 4 stroke pocket bikes out there, so maby thats what i saw. i will look more into this.
