Kolk1 Posted April 10, 2013 Report Share Posted April 10, 2013 There doesnt really seem to be an "other" subforum, so this is probably the most General topic area. So I guess ill put it here. So, I seem to bring it up a lot, or at least I think I do. This has been my way to purge my bank account for the last couple months apparently. Things should be wrapping up over the next couple weeks so I thought id go ahead and share, and talk about it. I havent been doing a day by day thread on this website, since im not sure how much you guys care about bikes, but since its getting wrapped up here shortly, I figured id post it up. In a nutshell, The Bike is a 07 Kawasaki ZX14. Old setup was BMC air filter, Full Brocks exhaust, and a Muzzy Nitrous kit. It did 180whp/103wtq NA, and 228whp/135wtq on a 50 shot. Long story short, #4 spark plug feel apart, and beat the shit of the piston, and scared up the cylinder wall. At that point, I figured, since the cylinder wall needs to be fixed, lets just punch the block from a 1352 to a 1451. Do full everything pretty much, and build a badass NA bike. Then Jerry came back with 2 price quotes. Big NA build Vs Stage 1 turbo build. Big NA was going to put me around 215-220whp and 130wtq, Thats almost my old nitrous numbers, so I was happy with that. BUT heres the thing, Stage 1 turbo build was only going to be about 2 grand more. BUT I could sell my Brocks exhaust, the nitrous kit, and the intake, and get some of that back. So in the end, the turbo build was only $750 more than that NA build, but we should easily do about 50 more whp compared to the NA build. So things were put in motion. This is not being built to be a drag bike, this is basically just going to be a fun/crazy street bike. Street manners, and ridability are going to be a big concern on this build. Staying 1352, doing JE 9.5:1 Compression pistons, Velocity Racing turbo kit with Garrett Dual ball bearing turbo, Tial Wastegate, Doing a port and polished head, degreeing the Cams, better clutch and stiffer springs, Its a pretty long list. lol Just the main stuff I took pics of. They are 9.5:1 pistons, but we are also running a thinner head gasket, so compression will be close to 10:1 Box of parts, and Radiator Fuel pump, FMU, Headstuds, piston rings, and some other random stuff. Pistons, Velocity stacks, Boost gauge, head gasket, air filter Turbo, manifold, exhaust, and Tial wastegate. Already on the bike, New rear spring (front springs soon), Stretch kit, 9inchs is maxed out, obviously cant run 9 if you want to be able to tighten the chain, but I set it at 9 for now, just to get a feel for how it would look. Also made a metal undertail, so if the tire hits the tail it wont rip out the ECU (usually a problem on slammed 14s) And this is how the bike sits now, just waiting... yes the garage is clean now. lol Also I made a mount for the boost gauge. A/F gauge will be next. And here is the last piece of the puzzle to finally show up yesterday(9th), a completely refreshed, and replated block. Jerry only sent me one pic of it so far, but basically said its brand new again. People have pushed stock motors with this turbo kit over 300whp. With all the head work, pistons, and so on, that would be easy for us to do as well, but keeping good street manners in mind, and this will only be a 93 octane pump gas bike. We are going to keep things reliable and safe, and run low boost compared to what its capable of handling. Our end goal is around 275whp, with about 150wtq. Thats still a solid 50 more whp that what my old setup did on nitrous. So this should be pretty crazy when its done. For those that dont under how fast this will be, or have any conception about what 300hp on a bike can do. Heres a video of a guy on a BONE stock ZX14, same as mine. He is about 170whp. Besides that, to try and find a good video of a 300hp bike is kinda hard to do. There is one of a guy that street races from a highway roll, all the 1200-1400whp Lamborghini's at the big Texas events, and he barley looses to the 1400whp ones....
