I think in 2008 we started to get them here. But I don't believe there is a turbo model in the US.

I had one for about 6 months. Neat car as a novelty but honestly didn't save as much gas as I thought.

I Honestly need to see how small this turbo is to see if a twin set up will work. Mainly the rear.
I'm thinking on my GV there is a HUGE battery compartment area that can be used(cut out)

just looked online, even the modern bigger engined versions are listed as turbocharged.

"3-cylinder turbocharged engine"

I guess they changed. I didn't follow them other than the time I had one. Well, Wifey.

well yesterday I was about the buy one mini turbo for fitment purposes but I couldn't pull the trigger from some reason.
My thoughts were if I couldn't use it as a twin set up I could use it on the hyo 250.
It's $220 each shipped but a single turbo can be had for $180.... I think that's what's bother me about it.

OMG!!! I just realized I have a hyo 250, ninja 250, cbr 250, and an r3. WTF just need a ktm I guess to be complete.
