Anyone got a link to a Turbocharger?

I was talking to this guy said his friend builds bikes and he put a Turbocharger on his and he goes 70 MPH +
Looking at them on eBay they give an average of 100 HP + out do any 1.5 HP stock motor.
But I don't have a machine shop to make an adaption something simple, please.

A two stroke can appreciate a turbo more than a four stroke. Ever seen the 2 stroke stock sleds with a turbo running pump gas? Still rideable and keeps up or beats 4 stroke turbos than can only run 500 feet then have to shut down to cool off and can only run on race gas.

They won't give 100+ hp, but it can be done. I wouldn't try without a modded gx200 minimum. This bike is turbo'd:
How does that turbo adapt is there a carb on it or is it bypass with a different air intake into the cylinder and different fuel supply ?????

The carb is hiding the turbo on that build. See how the exhaust manifold snakes around front to behind the carb? It's not my build btw, although I wish it was.

That is Kurts turbo 212, this is an older pic showing the other side with the turbo. Sick bike, he changed the rear end and front forks to custom fabbed ones.

4strokes are much better suited to turbos than 2strokes since a 4stroke has valves to hold in the boost. 2strokes bleed boost like crazy and need some very careful planning and port work to function properly.

The only 2 cycles that work with turbos are the Diesel GM or Jimmy Diesels and only because they have positive displacement induction, Roots made helical rotor superchargers, and real exhaust type valves in the head, for the NA ones.
