Paul,

Cliff has a USB port behind his left ear. Kiss

Hows this for an opener:  A turbo charged D will have more power and get better MPG than a non turbo model.  Now, does that pique your curiosity?  Just for openers.

John;

That wouldn't be true in Paul's case, he would have an ear to ear grin and his foot would on the floor all the time playing with the four stroke people. LOL

Now that sounds like fun, bring it on! Grin

I'm going to tape all of my conversations with Clifford, so if I miss something I can go back and push play!

Seriously, I have read all kinds of things, like, sure you can add a turbo, but you have to change the pistons, injectors, timing and a whole bunch of other stuff. Then I read, sure you can add a turbo, just slap it on and watch the boost, otherwise you can burn a hole in the top of the piston.

I'm sure with a lot of money anything can be accomplished. In my case it's the lack of, but I'm lookin into it just the same, you never know when I have nothing else to do, I can play Hot Rod!

Now, even igorant, I know that both those statements are TRUE. Neither is free or even cheap.  What good is power if you can't use it?

There is a third option: smoke turbo  It is intended to cut down the smoke you make when you are LUGGING the engine up a hill and more importantly...KEEPING the hp you had at sea level for the entire trip over the mountain.  The smoke turbo is the second cheapest alternative as it doesn't include the inframe(min).  Of course, the cheapest is to be satisfied......figure the odds. Grin Grin Grin  People like Don and Cliff can attach rough order of magnitude numbers to the first three options.

Did I mention that I can answer any question that you might ask to MY satisfaction? Huh Roll Eyes Grin

My ideal dream would be to show up at Cliffords, stay for a couple of months, tear the ole gal down and build her back up with some extra power. But then I realized his shop is always full, so I'm back to square one.  Cheesy

Maybe Clifford had plans to get his own bus in there.  I suspect he may have intended to use it for that at least occasionally.
