Wow, would love to have seen/heard that classic Rolls Royce thundering down the salt (in a suitably refined and stately manner of course). Any idea if there are any videos of it doing so?

Howdy all!
Been busy for a while, and spend time out of garage and reading on cuperter and talking to some pro's.

But first, lemme introduce my Christmas present to myself:

716504



716505

Its a 2006 Ural Gear up. Carbs and two-wheel drive. Perfect for me and my pup!


But back to my build.

I went to Coffee and Cars this month, and saw a guy with a Triumph Jacket. I struck up a conversation, ends up he works on a ton of 955 engines. and happens to have a full (used) turbo kit for my bike. It is a kit from Turbo Connections in South Dakota. It has all the plumbing, rebuilt varial-vein Aerocharger. It also has the intercooler and ports for water cooling. So I got that beauty. I haven't picked it up yet, will get pics when I do.
He also has a friend with a Power Commander and pipe just for the turbo.
It is a heck of a find!
But even more than that, the guy has put several turbos on the 955, and has resources for forged pistons and rods, He even has the specs for the pistons to lower the compression to what I am needing.
It was a very good day for my build!
