Small turbos - go to Briggs & Stratton site, they are presently marketing a
turbo diesel 3 cyl. engine making, you guessed it, 30 hp. Meanwhile I'll
try to remember to measure one from a CX 500 TC, thats 500cc or 30.5
cu.in.; I think the hot wheel is around 60 mm in diameter. Pretty small.
These over-square engines have 4 valve heads, turn 8000 to 10,000 rpm, make
65 to 90 hp.
