Finally made a decision of what im going to do, after considering NOS for a long while, I decided to wait and save up the money to buy a Velocity kit from superkaos, or maybe a hahn, not 100% sure about which kit yet, gotta find alot of info about the kits, going to go for about 350hp

What i really want, is a setup with about 350hp, that can ride thru twisties, I not going to extend or lower the bike at all, just a streetable 350hp busa.

btw, i mean eventually take it up to 350, not bolt on for 350 right off the bat

You don't ask for much do you.... just a 350 hp bike that's still good for twisties..? I imagine you are going to need the self control of Buda to not high side a 350 hp bike coming off a sharp turn. WoW!

OK, fine, so maybe 350 is a bit much, I think the kit will only go 300hp on pump anyway, so thats about as far as i will go. I not really planing to "attacking" twisties, i just mean being able to cruise thru them at a nice speed without running off the road from the accelleration. I like hp, but im not a moron.

Wait till you guys see what im working on the plans for, its just for the fun of it but, lets just say it will "blow" away a turbo busa if it is made a reality.

Just to help your planning, mine @ 6psi (about 240HP) and and a stock arm pulls the front wheel (High) in 3rd gear at about 6500rpm just by rolling the throttle on. 300 HP on a stock arm is a handful to say the least in anything less than 5th or 6th gear IMO.

Just make sure that the Turbo starts spooling up at 4800rpm and you will be fine in the twisties.
