A turbo works fine, if you are running down the highway. It is not worth $.02, on the rocks. You have much to learn, grasshopper. As I said before, there is no replacement, for displacement, and I really don't care if you don't like that..........Trip..........

You do not want to wind up your engine, to get enough boost, to get over a boulder, and propel yourself into space. Bad frigging idea. Everything has it's place, and a turbo has no place when your rock crawling. Maximum torque, at idle, gets the job done.

But for the commuters, and mall crawlers, knock your selves out. Go turbo, and race all the ricers, out there. See how fast you can get your brick, to move.

It is a complete wast of money for a supercharger or turbo! For the some price u can get a motor swap, 318 magnum V8 with tranny installed 55lbs hevier than the inline 6 for 5 g's.

Mr. C, it's been a long time since I've had a hero. Consider yourself nominated.

I think a blower with a bug catcher sticking out the hood would look awesome on your junk.....o.k. a little nitrous wouldn't hurt.

Sport bikes are for people who can respect the bike and know that the bike is going to do exactly what you tell it to do, even if its a wrong choice, not for squids who ride around in tank tops and shorts barely knowing how to ride in the first place. My work builds 6 second Buells and Suzukis, among a bunch of other custom bikes, and that is what I've learned there. Yes, they're dangerous, but if you respect the bike your a lot better off. Motorcycles are also dangerous in the sense that other traffic can a harder time seeing you.

But as far as boost on a Jeep, I think it would be cool. I looked into it, but I think I want to end up with a turbodiesel in mine, if thats not too far out of reach. Anyone put in a TD from a newer truck? I've seen people put little Peugeot turbodiesels and Volvos, but never a Cummins or something like that. I have seen the new Cummins Wrangler at some show or somethin in a pic, its pretty cool, but has anyone done this swap?

The JK with the cummins is actually the truck frame with the body modified to fit. if you look in the hood you can only see the first 4 cylinders. the other two are under the cowl.

You didnt say anything negative about boost. Read the rest of the posts.. they are all about "turbo" being for "ricers" and a thread after thread.. it gets old.

haha 17 years old... you're a funny old man.

I'm so sorry that you havent gotten your info right. With your experience i'd assume you would have so much more knowledge about boost. Let see, small turbo can be used with a waste gate so you can get boost at low rpm at about 1krpm. You can even use twin turbo if you'd like. Pretty much it would gain rpm in the lows and the waste gate would keep the turbo from over spinning. Thats how you get low end power...

This is also not entirely true... they are a lot of fun when the rubber side is down, but also enjoyable when only one wheel is down....

Sport bikes and all motorcycles for that matter are amazing machines... yes deadly if used improperly, however, cagers are also responsible for motorcycle fatalities... Experienced motorcycle riders are better vehicle operators as well... more aware of their surroundings and not worried about fixing the radio or dropping their cup of starbucks...

Now that my rant is over back to the engine topic... Turbo has its benefits as well as bigger V8's... Turbo tends to be a sleeper..... V8 has raw HP... Diesel chipped out... gas mileage as well as settings that allow you to set the engine to consume less fuel or turn it up and smoke the hell out of a lot of cars....

My work makes a bunch of parts for turbo bikes, they're bad. Hayabusas around 1400cc's, running 20+ pounds of boost, and nitrous, with no wheelie bar, doing 200mph 1/4 miles. And these would guys drag race these bikes on the street, but now they have Grudge racing events at tracks to discourage the street racing. Anyone on the East Coast know about this?

Based on the previous comments, its not dis-respectful Trip has a point about the waste gate. But still, I say just swap in a diesel. That is my goal before I graduate from college. Nice torque with a diesel, and u can run it on cheap veggie oil which makes ur exhaust smell like Mcdonald's
