Turbo'd Foreman??

Well I have a new idea, I am wondering if it is feasible to put a turbo on my fourwheeler. I know there was a company that was making kits for the foremans a few years ago, but nothing ever came of it because of the price. I was looking at a skid steer here at work which is a 3cyl turbo and the turbo is about perfect fourwheeler size if you ask me. Needless to say I am going to be the test dummy to see what it will do to a motor so if anyone has any ideas or input I would love to hear it!

I am still unsure of how rich to run the carb. Ideas???

Heres a few pictures of the turbo:

Would it need a boost box?

I am thinking about trying it after Mud Nats! Seems like carb jetting is the hardest part of the whole project, maybe have to make a boost plenum? in between carb and turbo??

The stock carb probably wont work with a turbo... no matter what its jetted at. A forged piston and rod would be a good idea... I dont see a foreman motor holding together very well under boost. Are you just looking for more power, or something to tinker with?
