    looking forward to see the progress of this project but just out of curiosity... will this bracket holding the turbo will be strong enough in choppy water??

    That's a great question. I initially tried to make my bracket out of 1/4" material but couldn't bend it using my vise bending tool so I stepped it down to 1/8" material. I've ordered a 12 tons sheer press that will handle the 1/4" material and I will try to make a new bracket soon, Julio...

    These guys are correct. I do run a Comp Turbo Oil-Less ceramic bearing turbo on my application. Here is a link for those interested in how they work. http://compturbo.com/spotlights/oil-less Scott and those guys have run the EFR turbos with great success, so by no means am I saying that you're compromising your setup. I went the oil-less route for ease of installation, less heat transferred to the engine oil from passing through the turbo's bearing cartridge, unlimited mounting configurations, and just less overall plumbing being there were no oil lines needed to be ran. Here are a few pics of my latest turbo, which we have yet to test being we're in the process of making many more changes. Julio...you're going to love your turbo setup, as we had spoken in regards to before. Call if you need anything. Keep up the good work and you'll be very pleased with the outcome. Keith Salles

    Is anyone you know of using one of these on a ski?
    I was reading they require service after so many miles . I wonder what kind of service interval they would need on a ski ? Sorry to hijack the thread. This is something I have been interested in trying !! Julio has a few skis maybe on the next one !

    Andy...service intervals are suggested in roughly the 15 to 20k miles in an application such as ours. With the new design, the service can be done by the individuals via the grease fitting mounted on the turbo. It doesn't have to be dissassembled. Keith
