    What option was that?

    It's certainly true that there are loads of parts available from the many turbo Kei cars. Anyone ever jammed them into a Beat?

    1960 125cc Honda Benly CB92R
    1964 305cc Super Hawk CB77, the only vehicle I have ever bought new in my life!
    Honda CB160, roadraced as 175cc 1967-1970.
    Honda Lawnmower, bought used in 2003, caught fire and melted in 2005.

    There are quite a few people in japan that have turbo'd the beat.

    I found some on the minkara site. Just run them through google translate.

    I was considering a turbo as well, but the hard part was finding an ecu control unit. Most people in japan used MoTeC. Then again, most people in japan had blown up their engines...

    I'm using an Adaptronic e320c in the AZ-1. It's replacement the Adaptronic 440 would work well to set up and run a turbo on a Beat

    You got me thinking, the Cappo has a suitably small turbo doesn't it?

    But.... I'd still be up against that bloody limiter.
    I love the smell of Nitrox in the morning !

    thing with doing a turbo conversion is you will need to get some sort of uprated clutch that will cope with the extra torque you would kill a standard clutch within a few hours.

    I think doing a turbo conversion on a beat would be pretty easy and could be done for a good price aswell it is just a case of how much you want to actually spend doing it? Bike engine conversion would be good but again price of doing that is huge even doing it yourself I mean Jen has probably spent in the region of 6-8k? at a guess so far and she ain't even near finished yet.

    I think with the beat a top speed of about 90/100 is enough but if you generally don't go above 80/85 and want a bit more ooommpphh to overtake stuff then turbo conversion is something to think on. Small turbo like a ihi rhb51 vq10 or vq12 off a charade gtti would work quite nicely
