Sac Turbocharged Triumph Rocket 3

Jan Venter and the team at Steve's Auto Clinic Durban have finally revealed the roaring power of the Triumph Rocket that they recently turbo Charged. The massive Triumph Rocket III, with its already powerful 2300cc engine, comes with outrageous pistons similar in size to a Dodge Viper, and styling to match. The team at SAC fitted the bike with a T28 Garret turbo, and custom built the Exhaust intake manifold and Intercooler. All of the parts had to be hand made to suit both the style and the performance aspects of the bike. The end result was an astonishing 223kw and 438 Nm.

Rocket 3 TTS Rotrex Supercharger
The 1st start up after fitting the TTS Supercharger kit with C30 Rotrex unit to a 2005 Rocket III. I replaced the auto belt tensioner for the manual tensioner and a stud fitted to the drive pinion rather than the bolt which was prone to breakage. You will note that the drive pulley nut appears to run out of true, illusion only created by the washer and the plastic within the nut. The pinion shaft and belt drive pulley have been dialled for accuracy during assembly. Producing 276 hp with TuneBoy mapping by Wayne. Some further adjustments have been made for this particular bike. Total fitting time for a Rocket with all standard trims refitted and the installation of braiding for the oil lines to and from the charger unit, 27 hours. Power delivery is exceptionally smooth and instantaneous. Although the idle control unit has been removed, with careful manual adjustment, cold starting is effortless with no throttle, straight off the button and steady at 800rpm cold, 900 rpm hot. Using the TuneEdit programme I recommend restricting the rev limiter to 3500rpm for the first 500km to allow correct run in of the Rotrex unit, and limiting the secondary butterflies to 70% opening. After run in.....FULL POWER!!! This is the first Rocket to be fitted with a TTS kit here in New Zealand. Special thanks to Richard Bainbridge of TTS UK Ltd & Wayne MacDonald of Tuneboy Aust PTY LTD.
