  • Flame Throwing Turbo Charged Racejet Boss 5000

    A few years ago we bolted a turbo charger, intercooler and blow-off valve to one of our jetters. Ok, we were bored! It ran ok but had some oil pressure issues etc.

    I started a mechanic at our shop recently and he found it in the corner of the showroom covered in dust and asked me what it was. Within a few hours he diagnosed the problems, started it and after some fine tuning he had long flames blowing from the exhaust pipe! He also managed to blow the pressure gauge, the high pressure hoses and associated fittings. We thought it was great!



    Rebuilding jetter and posting a video clip on Monday.

    I applaud your efforts to further the limits of Jetter technology!

    So what are we looking at something like this?

            I hope the vid shows lots of smoke and flames blowing out of it with a screaming loud engine.

            Oh, and some scantily clad women dancing around it would be nice too

            Is that Australian Monday or our Monday?

                        who needs a flashing strobe to warn others when you have flames and a glow in the dark exhaust system.

                        your drive away warranty is like the out of sight one that rookie offers

                        your pump is limited in volume and pressure. what does the turbo do in this case

                          Why a turbo...apart from looking and sounding fully sic?..... It builds the performance of the 27hp engine by about 30% and breaks things like the pressure gauge, the hoses and fittings. The unloader valve prevents most of the problems....when its not broken! Great for taking to trade shows too!

                          I want to hook it up to one of the NOS bottles from the Jetters Edge race car soon.... new mechanic wants nothing to do with it

                            Bill.....you are a nut.

                            Is this going to be like the ride on lawn mower racing thing just with jetters!

                            If so Im in!!!

                              That is so cool, thank you for sharing. It does give me bad ideas though, like putting a turbo or supercharger on my motorbike.
