What are you working on exactly? Putting a turbo on an energy cell tractor (Moline to be specific) doesn't necessarily end badly, they're just hard to get power out of. And when you say "hot farm", what are the rules you're working with? The term "hot farm" has different meanings depending on what part of the country you're in. As we know with the energy cells, the fuel squirts across the combustion chamber first, hits the cup, and then is atomized. What I've heard is that a hot farm style turbo creates too much turbulence in the cylinder for the fuel to make that trip, causing it to not atomize properly. You need a lot of timing and high injection pressure. And in realative terms, its a slow process. Whereas direct injection atomizes the fuel on the way in. Of course, this is only what I've been told ;) ......

Take out the power cells and block the hole. Advance the timing 30-32 degrees or more and flash fire it. Got a 900 Case turbo set up like this and works great.

Thanks for the info. Maybe try to come up with some nozzle injectors instead of the pintle ones?

The basics of the rules are stock block, head, and pump (outside), 20% over on RPM. Looking to run 6500 and 7500lb. I haven't settled on a particular tractor yet still trying to decide on what will work best. I do like different. Needs to be diesel, I don't like carbs and plugs!
