Boredom, lawnmowers, and spare parts are bad things. Think of it as Ratmower Part II, except hopefully this time it won't blow up.
Mid 80's Honda tractor with a liquid cooled inline 2, OHC engine. 350CC. turbo is from a 1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4. It's going to use a draw-through carb setup. We are trying the stock carb first, but if that is nto enough then it's going to use a single carb from my 80's Kawasaki KZ440 bike.
Turbo Honda Lawnmower Part 3; Test drive and RACE!
It's done! Proof that the mower actually moves under it's own power. I
ditched the various bike/snowmobile side-draft carbs for a downdraft Briggs
Nikki test drives it. There was some concern it was slower than the stock
3813... and only one way to answer that question; a showdown.
Turbocharged Honda Lawnmower - Part 2
Draw through turbo setup on a mid 80's
Honda 3813 riding lawnmower. 9B turbo
from a 3000gt-vr4. Carb is from an early 80's Kawasaki 440 motorcycle.
The carb is acting funny, more tuning and progress to come.

Turbo Diesel Mini Bike
Start at 2:13 to skip the intro, or click here for a helmet-cam ride:
This is an idea I've had since I was a kid, and after watching Mike Cberts
Diesel mini bike video I was inspired to put together my own! The frame
has been around since I was 4 years old! At that point it was powered by a
3 hp Briggs and Stratton and is a Fox corporation, Trail Bug probably from
the 60's or early 70's. The engine is a copy of a 10 hp Yanmar single
cylinder Diesel engine and the turbo is
similar to the one on my Honda CX-500 turbo motorcycle. The engine runs at 3,600 rpm
max and top speed so far is 39.3 mph.
Here's a description of 2 stroke & 4 stroke Diesel engines:
Hot Rod Supercharged Briggs and Stratton 5hp
This is a supercharged 5hp briggs I've been working on for about a year.
All the parts were made by me in my free time while attending Linn State
Technical College in Linn, MO. Hope to have it fired up in a couple weeks.
Hoping to put 5-6 pounds of Boost to
it. We are worried that the amount of drag the pump creates will overpower
any performance gain in the motor. I've seen alot of fake supercharged
briggs, but this is the real deal. We used a smog air pump off a 70's GM

Turbo lawn mower
When everyone said it couldnt be done, It drew me even more to make the turboed mower. I havent put any kind of
fabrication onto it yet i simply piped in just the basic componets to make
sure the thing would even run with a turbo on it.
So here it is, on youtube to prove you all wrong, greco performance at its
More to come?....
yeah there will be
Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
