Going Turbo, with help from you experts!

So I have been checking out heaps of the threads on here and doing a little research on a turbo for my 2010 muscle. I want to build something similar to the Trask kit available and would appreciate any help I can get with it. I only just decided last couple days to actually attempt it as I got hold of a fabricator who is willing to make me a plenum, manifold and exhaust!!

This wont be an overnight project as the bike is allready stripped for paint/powdercoating but hoping to have it finished over the next 2-3 months. Reason I am not going a ready made kit is.. well $$$$$..

*Im going to go with a garrett gt2554r or possibly gt2860r
*Im planning to get a v-band connector for the outlet to suit a 3" exhaust.
*making exhaust connect to a silencer mounted to the stock muffler mound.


Anyhow, the first query I have is about the plenum. I put a pic up of what I think is a Trask plenum and circled/lettered the hose connections on the plenum and would like to know were they each go. Also I read that a 'v' channel is used inside the plenum to regulate air flow... Is that right?

Any help would be great!! Cheers guys!

I would prefer gtr2560 if you will stay below 16Psi.

a pressure hose to Boost Gauge and Fuel Regulator
b breather hose / feed to air intake filter or seperate catch filter.
c front case breather hose
d rear case breather hose

Square welded onto Cyinder is a oil catch from the cases and self drain back through the same hose.

Good Luck

The 'v channel' is just a length of angle welded in the plenum. If you are designing your own system consider reading up on plenum design. Lots of good information available.

That is the angle I was talking about. Due to the charge inlet position at the rear this angle is used to keep the rear cylinder from being 'overloaded'. Design a plenum with more even distribution and you can eliminate this obstruction.
