You guys are a hoot, made me laugh out loud!
On a semi-serious note Rick, I think that that would be one heck of a project. You seem to have no problem fab'ing things together and rather well I might add. A turbo on a Cub would probably double the power at the crank (what is the hp on a Cub at the crank? 13-15hp?) and increase the lower rpm torque. The low compression on the C60 (you'd need one with aluminum pistons) lends itself nicely to a turbo and you could still use a carburetor (richened up a bit) ala a Paxton supercharger. Hey, they run alcohol in Kolher motors, so why not? Granted the bottom end on the Kohlers are beefed up but if you keep the boost to say 5 lbs and a rev limiter(lol) if you run a distributor, it might work out pretty well. Would have to add an electric water pump though. Do you have a spare Cub? My son has a turbo charged, direct injected 2.4 - 4 banger that puts out nearly 300 hp.
