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
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
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
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.

ALCHEMY BIKES' TRIUMPH ROCKET 3
We've just fitted a couple of Tailgunner Exhausts to a customer's Rocket 3, with Power
Commander and Rolling Road set up, plus a K&N Filter. Goes really well and
pick up is very impressive. Also, we wrapped the Exhausts and fitted Progressive Suspension
412-Series Shocks on the back, and Springs in the front forks. This has
transformed the handling, as it really goes around corners as it should,
with no mid-bend wallowing, or anything. For any info on these parts or any
other custom part for your Triumph, Japanese Cruiser or Harley Davidson,
please get in touch on 01462 677300.
