The turbocharger is the way to go. The standard turbo version of the CB23 is the CB60 or CB61.

It might be easier to source a turbo engine rather than go through the process of modification.

The Cb60/61 has a small IHI RHB32 hairdryer stock, but enthuisisats throw them for an RHF5 series. The engine is blow through carby, the carby being fitted with positive pressure diaphragms as is the distributor.

This one I fuel injected:

Check this out with performance shops as there may be an intercooler that fits straight in. You may have to get brackets in a kit or make them yourself. The problem will the routing of the intercooling hoses to and from the turbo/manifold . Front mounted intercooler are more efficient at cooling the air so the only problem I can see apart from the engineering side of fitting it is that you may have to have a speed shop with a chassis dyno reprogram the CPU to get the best performance from the cooler more dense air.

Where do I top up manual transmission oil on a 1986 daihatsu charade turbo g11?

Do you want to top up the engine oil or the transmission oil? The transmission oil plug is on the top side of the transmission. You need to lift up the car to do this. Best thing is to bring it to a service station.

G11 Turbo My car does not have the original Fuel Pump. The current Fuel pump is not able to support or supply enough fuel once the car Boost above 0.4 bars or running around 80km. Please...

Get a compatible aftermarket fuel pump that matches or exceeds the pressure and flow of the factory pump. Look up compatible fuel pumps in google for your year make and model.

Does my 2002 S80 Volvo have turbo or not?

is this a t6? if so yes. turbocharged engines have more horsepower than naturally asprirated engines, a turbo charger works like a supercharger by forcing more air into the intake, while a super charger is usually belt driven a turbocharger is exhaust driven, it will be located in the exhaust pipe or exhaust manifold and is turned by exhaust gases passing thu with the opposite side connected to the air intake pipeing, some have the intake air piped thru a intercooler which is mounted in front of the radiator(cooler air is more horsepower)
type 2002 s80 volvo in your search bar and you can find a ton of info

Size of Jets for 1984 Daihatsu Charade G11 Turbo Carburettor

You won't need to change the jets. We have had the Cb60 pumping 75- 90kW on the stock carby. Are you trying to increase performance there are better ways: e.g. RHF5 series turbo, lightened flywheel (4.5kg) with Mazda 121 clutch plate and 1600lb pressure plate. Swap in a G202 electronic dizzy& coil, and replace vacuum advance diaphragm.

Need more horsepower from g11 charade. looking fro CahsDaihard

This is a hard one, because the power to displacement ratio is pretty good, considering the design isr 30 years old.

Things like pod filters make no difference on just about any car, so forget that. The exhaust does sound nice when a 2" is fitted, but I can't say the gains are noticeable on the CB23.

I do advocate a modification to the vacuum hoses, that allows a few degrees more advance and better pickup. You swap the hoses like so and advance the timing about 12mm on the flywheel dimple. It still allows starting because the dizzy isn't allowed to adavnce until the throttle snaps open, unlike the stock piping setup.

Note where you existing hoses are in case you want to swap back. When you make the mod, listen for pinking up hills and retrad the timing a tad until it stops.

Although there is minimal power gain, the Bosch Super 4 plugs are great for eliminating misfires and regular maintenance.

Make sure you keep the points gap at factory. If you can source an electronic dizzy and coil from the 1990's era G200 series you will notice increased torque and nvere have to worry about gapping points again.

Empty the gearbox oil and replace with Redline

Check your engine mounts aren't splitting. Any undue flex will load the CV joints and you will lose power to the wheels.

The G11 has a rubber bushing on the gear selector control rod that wears away causing the gear stick to wobble as you drive. Replace this with an OEM bushing or make one yourself from some rubber hose.

These are peripheral mods. If you intend getting stuck into the engine internals, there is head work you can do, plus a new set of rings and bigend bearings will freshen up the power.

You can also try to source a CB60/61 engine and enjoy the spirit of a turbocharged engine.

My 1986 charade turbo is running to do i ajust it???????

Probably too late for a reply, but the CB60 engine runs rich because it needs the cooling from the fuel. If it's obviously far too rich, check your float level in the carby and that the fuel pressure reguulator has the vacuum hose fitted and that the vacuum hose is in good condition.

The only adjustment for fuel is the idle mixture screw which is usually shrouded to stop the fiddles. The adjustment is to screw it all the way in then trun it out about seven turns. As this is only for the emulsion circuit, it will have only a minor effect on normal driving fuel enrichment.
