The Liner is on hold for parts and sainity reasons,  The bike is Joey's. The truck is Andy's and I will be the eng partner---all 3 of us are courious about Turbos---the truck will have more room for us to learn with primitive & crude systems.  Will not have to deal with and spend so much time with packaging as we learn about turbo and 4x4 syestems.  Then Eng is a bunch of stuff I have acquired over the years ( a very wery low buck EBAY type eng.
 I have some old speed pro 4.28 blower pistons and my repaired 4" crank for a 461 and I have my repaired 4.25 crank and some 6.135/496 or 6.385/438  pistons and we will use the EFI system I ran on Ratical.
  I have some old early Dart Iron Eagle heads and my Holley efi manifold.  With a recon turbo I scrounged at a truck wrecking yard in Dallas for a 600 Hp Detriot Diesel--- we are going to see if we can light it off.

  I finished the paint on the frame and now I am putting the bike back together . Sorry Charles No Black . It was a tough call. But in the end I went with silver.I a going to use a dark red with white out line for all the graphics. I still have to do the fairings. But the bike is back on its wheels and the wiring and plumbing are going in.
Thank you to all the volunteers

Looks great guys, nice work.

I'm doing a few things to the ZX10s, but just incremental changes.  On the turbo I had the shock resprung and revalved, and will install an airshifter. The nitrous bike will get a tuneup for a bit bigger pill and different gearing.

Biggest change for me this winter is the arrival of my son Benjamin, born last Sunday, I couldn't be happier. He and mom Leslie are happy and healthy. A merry merry Christmas  :-D

Congrats to you and Leslie, Dean.

Word from Airtech is that my S&S fairing will be ready shortly after New Years.  Then comes the fun of figuring out how much to lower the 996 followed shortly by doing a chop job on the fairing to get it to fit.  Then we can open up an intake for the ram air and work on the airbox...  In the meantime, my overbuilt steel chainguard came back from the welder and fit just fine so I can amuse myself grinding, sanding, filing, priming and painting that over the holidays.

Wow Dean, now that is cool!!!  Thrilled to hear of your new addition to the family.
But then I'm afraid the thread title would be more accurate if it said "Spring, Summer, and Fall Build". However we are all sure it is an "Upgrade"!
