Smile OT - Turbocharged Kawasaki Mule

This is my brother's project I just helped him finish. It's a Kawasaki 3010 Diesel Mule now with a Toyota CT-9 Turbocharger. It makes a solid 3lbs. of boost right now and our next step is to turn the pump up just a little. We still want this thing to be reliable but keep it's speed going up our steep hills.

I'll get a video of it soon. This thing sounds wicked!

Haha, we wish! We'll be happy with it when it carries 4 people up steep hills while holding 20 to 25 mph

We're going to try to be careful..... I've been doing research on these engines and I expect that we could blow it up if we turn the pump up too much. They are easy to over-rev.

What Jay said, plus nice pics.

You need some tunes for your mule. During live tuning with Jody this past June he was telling me about tuning his Kawasaki side-by-side and getting 8 more horsepower. He knows Kawasaki.

Here is a good video I got recently of the mule in action! The turbo sounds sweet!

That is COOL!
Looks like you have the fuel turned up enough, nice big puff of smoke that clears as soon as the turbo spools.
