Default Turbocharged Kohler

So heres the story.. I had one of those Scotts John Deere mowers with a 25 hp Kohler on it. It was in a minor accident one day, so we decided that we would sell it to one of my buddies, rather than have it fixed as it was pretty old. My friend was bored and ambitious one day and heres the result.

That picture looks very interesting!

Can you tell us a little about what is going on there? Walk us through some of the components and all.

What kind of effect did it have on the performance?

This was just something my buddy put together in his spare time. he does actually have a mechanical waste gate which is pretty neat, and it does build a little boost. But due to the blown turbo seals, it burns oil pretty badly. it is pretty obnoxious, but it draws a lot of attention. I really want to see it try and pull some weight to see if the turbo actually makes a difference..

It be fun if you could include it in your marketing and say something like 'the only lawn care company in the area that is "Turbo Powered."

That would be neat steve. This mower does not have a deck on it anymore however. I mean my truck is turbo powered, but i would rather have a turbo zt or something to advertise that. I have a plan which i will reveal when i put it into action...
