No, turbochargers don't work well on Bullets.
Have you tried to it before??? if so please share your experience...
Low-revving single cylinder engines can't "spool up" a turbo, because there's to much time between exhaust pulses. It doesn't operate the turbo properly.Secondly, even if you could get the turbo to work somehow, the Bullet cannot withstand the added compression of turbocharging in its hemi chamber, on pump fuel.It would need to be alcohol or nitro-methane, or something like that.And there's no way to run an intercooler, either.Nor is there any way to deal with the ignition timing regulation needed.And if you somehow managed to get over all those obstacles, the bottom end of the engine would blow up from the stress that the turbo would put on it.
Turbo charging any single cylinder engine would be difficult and extremely expensive.The single exhaust pulse does not efficiently spin a turbo. To my knowledge there is no turbo of the right capacity for a Bullet.A belt or gear driven supercharger would be more effective but just as expensive IMHO It will take a lot of research and development at considerable cost as there are many technical obstacles to be overcome. The host engine would require many new parts made specifically for the purpose. Again, to my knowledge there is no super charger of the right capacity for a Bullet. In theory it could be done though.
