While it is certainly possible, it is not really sensible to fit a turbo charger to a single cylinder engine.
The power pulses driving the turbine are just too far apart (one each two revolutions). To stop the turbine constantly speeding up slowing down - with pretty unspectacular intake pressures - will take sophisticated knowledge of pressure wave propagation, resonace chamber design, reed valve chambers etc.
Because of all that, you would also get intolerable turbo lag.
I suggest you get a bigger bike instead :)

Tip

Turbocharger installation


In order to avoid any possible damage while installing your turbocharger or premature operating problems, either of which could invalidate the warranty, please follow these simple intructions carefully and completely.
1) Ascertain why the old unit failed, you don't want the same problem to recur and damage the new unit.
2) check for cleanliness. the smallest particles of dirt can do irrevocable damage to a turbocharger so check engine intake/exhaust and aftercooler systems for cleanliness and obstructions, carefully removing oil, pieces of gasket, dust, dirt and other debris. Replace the air filter.
3) Check the oil inlet and oil drain flanges are clean and free from obstruction, internal carbon and sludge, removing them to clean if necessary. if in doubt replace with new.
4) Replace the oil and filetr
5) Check that manifold casting is not cracked on the outside or breaking internally.
6)Mount the turbocharger on the exhaust flange checking that turbine inlet gasket fits correctly to give a gas tight seal.
7) Connect the oil drain pipe using gasket supplied - do not use any liquid gasket products.
8) Fill the tubocharger oil feed hole with clean engine oil and rotate the rotor by hand.
Finally connect all external fitting to the turbocharger. Start the engine and idle for few minutes, check the oil is not leaking and the warning sign does not come up, check all connection for possible leaks using soapy water.

Hi, vw experts, my engine light diagnosis was "turbo charger overboost" what might this mean? also, glow plug #4 cylinder circuit open. would this mean a faulty glow plug or faulty harness?...


First problem: "turbo charger overboost"
In your case the turbocharger is responsible for engine losing power.
The car goes in the "limp home" mode!!!
After scan the EDC-15P engine control unit with a VAG or KTS -BOSCH diagnosis tool you will find this: Fault code: P1557-Turbo Boost pressure control exceeded
1. Engine stopped and ignition switch off. Check all pneumatic connections and hoses between turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control, boost-pressure control solenoid valve, vacuum reservoir, EGR control solenoid valve, intake-manifold flap solenoid valve, EGR valve with throttle - part of intake manifold. Also the vacuum connection between tandem pump and brake booster. If you find something wrong replace parts. If not go to step 2.
2. Extract the hose of the turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control part of turbocharger. Instead of the original hose you must place another 1 meter long hose with the same inside diameter, and then you check to inspire yourself the air from the other one extremity of this hose. The mechanical connecting rod of the turbocharger actuator must have a smooth and whole motion. If you can do that with your mouth, then you must replace the boost-pressure control solenoid valve. If you can not reach this with your mouth, then you go to step 3.
3. This is the most difficult work. The problem is that the soot particles deposits inside the turbocharger plugging the variable nozzle geometry mechanism = adjustable vanes of the turbine. If the turbocharger actuator is not able to adjust the turbine vanes the charge air pressure increase too much and ECU (engine control unit) go in "limp mode" = engine protection software. As a result the "limp home" mode engine still running until you turn the engine off (ignition switch off) and back on when the "limp mode" is deactivated, but the fault still remain in ECU memory!
4. You must be able to extract the turbo from the engine and then to disassemble the turbocharger, clean inside adjustable vanes mechanism and refit all.


Second problem: "glow plug #4 cylinder circuit open"
Swap another glow plug in good condition by another cylinder, and see if the fault still occurs. If not, then this mean a faulty glow plug. If yes, then there is a bad harness.


Please do rate my response. Thanks!

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the coolant.

CAUTION

When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

  1. Disconnect the O2 sensor wire clamp and connector.
  2. Disconnect the Nos. 1 and 3 PCV hoses.

  7. Remove the turbocharger bracket stay.
  8. Disconnect the turbocharger oil pipe.
  9. Remove the turbocharger and exhaust manifold as an assembly.
  10. Remove the No. 2 turbocharger water pipe.
  11. Remove the oil pipe.
  12. Remove the No. 1 water pipe.
  13. Remove the turbine outlet elbow with the O2 sensor attached.
  14. Disconnect the turbocharger from the manifold.

To install:

  1. Pour approximately 20cc of new oil into the oil inlet and then turn the turbocharger impeller wheel so as to wet the bearing.
  2. Using a new gasket, attach the turbocharger to the manifold and tighten the nuts to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm).
  3. Install the turbine outlet elbow and tighten the nuts to 19 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  4. Install the No. 1 water pipe. Install the turbo oil pipe and tighten the nuts to 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm).
  5. Install the No. 2 water pipe and then mount the assembly to the cylinder head.

Im just asking what size the motor for a 1994 ford probe???


A dual-overhead-cam 4-cylinder engine powered base Probes in 1993, developing 115 horsepower. The GT coupe held a 164-horsepower V6, also of dual-overhead-cam configuration. Both engines are Mazda designs. No more turbocharged engines were available. A 5-speed manual transmission was standard; 4-speed overdrive automatic optional. Except for a slight horsepower/torque boost in 1995 for the 4-cylinder engine, and a mild V6 torque increase the year before, powertrains saw no change in this period.

Car doesnt have power and is also smoking ,,,i put the new airflow mitter but still the problem doesnt go away


Check immediately the turbocharger! DO NOT START THE ENGINE WITH THIS KIND OF PROBLEM!
Remove the air inlet axial center hose of the turbocharger, in other words the compressor air inlet hose. Then check axial & radial gaps of the turbocharger rotor.
Check also the turbocharger oil pressure supply. Check the engine oil level also.
Repair & replace bad pieces.
In the most cases the turbocharger is out of order when engine puffing off blue smoke and losing power.
If the car goes in "limp mode"!!!

Iv been told that there is a valve that sticks somewhere around the turbo on my A4 tdi could anyone tell me exactly where it is and how to get it out?

Also the vacuum connection between tandem pump and brake booster. If you find something wrong replace parts. If not go to step 2.

The boost-pressure control solenoid valve is placed in front right side of the cylinder block. Follow the rubber vacuum pipe direction, going from the turbocharger actuator toward the boost-pressure control solenoid valve.

2. Extract the hose of the turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control part of turbocharger.

An engine control unit (ECU) is an electronic control unit which controls various aspects of an internal combustion engine's operation. The simplest ECUs control only the quantity of fuel injected into each cylinder each engine cycle. More advanced ECUs found on most modern cars also control the ignition timing, variable valve timing (VVT), the level of boost maintained by the turbocharger (in turbocharged cars), and other peripherals.
ECUs determine the quantity of fuel, ignition timing and other parameters by monitoring the engine through sensors. These can include, MAP sensor, throttle position sensor, air temperature sensor, oxygen sensor and many others. Often this monitoring and control is done using a control loop (such as a PID controller).
Before ECUs, most engine parameters were fixed. The quantity of fuel per cylinder per engine cycle was determined by a carburetor or injector pump.
