Default Re: Operational Engine Stand

You could probably run a GT06 turbo on a 50cc engine since it's a really tiny turbo but the biggest problem there is the price at $699 per unit and there are no clones of it out there yet.
The main problem you'll run into by using a turbo that's too big like the RB31 on a 50cc engine is that it won't start to spool until the rpm is way up there... sort of like those Hondas that are using 18 wheeler sized turbos on a little 1.5 to 2 liter engine, yes, they will make around 500 to 600hp but won't come into play until the engine is close to redline, then it has a really narrow but really strong powerband.
