My use of lagginess with respect to the VF52 was a bit misleading, because you're correct. The length of the header will directly impact lag. I was referring to where/how the turbo really starts making power...typically around 3500-4000RPM and runs through about 6000RPM. It is relatively top-end biased for a Subaru and less airflow from a smaller engine wouldn't help matters. But, without a compressor map on hand, I'll trust your word that it's similar in size to the GT25. Either way, I'm eager to see how you make out. I have passingly toyed with the idea of turbocharging the FZ-07.
Didn't realize it's a VF52... Same turbo that's on my car LOL

I didn't think the OP was looking to use the VF52...just that it was a potential candidate based on what he has on the shelf.
With respect to Ben at Extreme Creations, the price for his kit is not $6,000+ as you put in your initial post ... the prices on his website are listed in Australian Dollars. The total price (to your door) for his kit with tuning is about $4,800 USD. And while I agree that's still a good chunk of bacon for bike parts, I think many would agree it's not unrealistic for what you're getting with his kit. I look at it like you're getting the horsepower of a Super Duke 1290R out of a Yamaha FZ-09 ... And he is now doing R&D for the stage II upgrade to his kit which is an intercooler and stiffer valve springs - should push it north of 200whp for those who just need more!
ANYWAY - I still commend you for doing your own build, I think that's awesome - it's more than I could ever accomplish in my garage - and I'm with everyone else here in that I'm excited to see the progress and ultimately the end result. Cheers and good luck -
Damn this is am exciting thread to see! Please keep the progress well documented!
What are you using for MAP sensor? I used the PLX map sensor on my FZ6R, the sensor is good up to 3Bar and you can hook it up to the PCV extra channel. That's the route I would go if I was you for fueling for now.
With the PCV + Autotune + LCD-200 you can do about anything, include data logging in real life. I use MegaViewer HD to look at the data, work great! As far as duty cycle, the biggest number I've seen was 65% duty cycle. That's in 3rd gear, 100% throttle at the rev limiter. So you have like a 10% to play with, pass that you might need to go one step up on the injector or adding secondary injectors?
Good luck, I'll be following this thread.
