Depends on what your talking little? 500-600cc? 250cc? Pocket bikes/scooters 49-150cc?

90% of the turbo bikes ive seen have been hack builds. Ebay turbos that blow up within a month or less, homemade turbo headers and intakes that look like a retarded monkey welded them, and no thought whatsoever to the fuel requirements/mapping/timing needed to properly tune a turbo setup.

As far as small turbos i wouldnt turbo anything less than 250cc, although i had a guy want me to turbo his 150cc scooter one time until he found out it was going to be alot more than anticipated since i dont do hack jobs... One thing people fail to take into account is the parts availability/support of certain bikes. Sure you cant turbo a 250 ninja but since nobody offers aftermarket connecting rods and forged low compression pistons for it(to my knowledge), then you better do your homework and see what rods/pistons you can use from another bike with similar specs on those parts if you want to keep the engine together, just to point out a couple obvious(to me) points.

Im turboing a 500cc thumper and adding homebrew fuel injection with microsquirt and ive done ALOT of research on turboing a single cylinder bike as its an entirely different ballgame from the run of the mill busa turbo setup... Ive got the turbo being built right now, a Garrett(no ebay turbo for me), the head is getting sent out next week to be CNC ported and larger exhaust valve installed, im also getting the head O-ringed at the cylinder and also at the intake since ill be running high boost.

The main point is to do a ton of research and talk to every person you can who has ever turboed anything if you want something that will stay together and be as much fun a year down the road as it is the day its built. Just my .02c

Everything should be turbo'd, and what the fuck is a budget?

depends on the bike/car Some bikes can handle it a lot better with little/no mods. I wouldnt spend 5k on a turbo system, but mine is possibly the slowest build in history

The only things that should be turbo'd run on diesel, for everything else there's NO2, Superchargers, Nitromethane and higher compression pistons.

(BTW, I drive diesels and Big-block Mopars)

Once you drive a blown big block car, the rice grinders just seem like kid's toys.
