    I will be very glad for your comments and suggestions Ericz.

    About the flex coupling, i am allready think about it. I will do this for sure.
    If i will no use flex coupling i think my frame wich hold turbozcharger will be cracked shortly.

    Thanks for suggestion about the oil drain. I will rotate oil drain, i am glad what that's easy.
    Oil hose is not connected to the turbine yet, so I do not get thi8s problem yet.

    Water radiator is mounted at the bottom of the bike. You think turbocharger will work without the water cooling?

    Turbowerx oil pump is only 5A nominal, water injection will work only at maximum rpm and pressure, so i hope the electric system of the bike cope with that.

    Oh yes, now i understand what do you mean.
    Right after the engine i have one sensor. That one is for pyrometer, especially i want to try control temperature of the turbine first. I want to control temperature changes first. For example if all the time this sensor will show 1,5F... i will think that thats standart temperature, if the temp will rise up i will think what something wrong, with the cooling for example.

    Extremely grateful for your advice Eric, it is difficult to engage in such projects in the place where I live, no one to consult.

    Absolutely sick sir. Looks like you've put a LOT of work into this. Looks great and I'm sure it will be a beast once it gets up and running. Best post some vids of it in action

    I like the frame paint. Very subtle. :D

    I'll give you an A+ for effort...but...I'm very curious how you're going to route the exhaust from the exit flange. Your left leg is going to experience a whole new level of frying that will make Colonel Sanders jealous.

    When i seat on the bike distance from exhaust pipes to my leg is about 20-25cm, is more then enought. Also that 2 exhaust pipes maded from titanium. Not so hot as steel maded.

    A\F is not ajusted yet, next week i will go to the Dyno...I promise to shoot a little video...
