@BoostedB7100: Looks like you are crazy enough to join our club...

Adding a turbo is really something special. I hope your little friend will stay healthy.
Have fun and welcome.

Thank you I am a little crazy at times haha

I'm hoping having the correct tuning and not pushing too much boost, will keep her running good for many years to come

Bah it's old (old design) naturally aspirated diesel, it's so over built you could run it at 20psi and it'd be happy as a clam.

BoostedB7100, i'm disappointed with you over this project for 2 reasons. First and maybe the most important is, NO video yet!!! Come on, we have to see and hear it!! And idle, start up, under heavy load. Oh Please???? And secondly,now you got me wanting to do this. Wow. Nice job Bro.

Hahaha Thanks man.

We have been having some real crappy weather out here lately so she hasn't seen a whole lot of field work yet but as soon as I get the chance i will be sure to put up some good action videos. Until then ill get a startup and driving vid up within the next few days. Im working on my hood mounted guage cluster right now so as soon as i get some pretty guages on her ill shoot the video :-)

If you do ever decide to go the turbo route i would be more than happy to help.

Still need to add a bit more fuel. I'm going to wait to get all the gauges mounted first...

well thats brill, and can you believe it, i was only thinking to myself yesterday, i wonder if it is possible to fit a turbo to a B7100.
I was browing ebay for kubota parts and started looking at turbochargers with the self same mad idea also.
I think it is time to get the "Big" tool box out.... and start plumbing.

nice job that man.
