Cool, yes, but with the Cub you have to go faster to get the extra HP, so you'd be going WAY to fast to mow grass.

Keystone turbos are saying this kit costs 750 dollars. 8lbs of boost. For doing typical ground/garden work I don't see where it would do much benefit but for a mower man this would be sweet! For a cub tug would be sweet too. Double wheel weights, loaded tires, you got a pulling machine.

My thought is if I had another Cub and if I had an extra $750, I'd do it, I think it'd be cool. But I don't see either of those happening anytime soon, so I'll keep what I have now. It does everything I ask it to.

They do have a website and it looks as if they did turbos for larger IH units http://keystoneturbollc.com/ I am surprised by the $750. It is a lot of welding work and parts for $750.

I was surprised at the cost, too. Especially since a kit for an M is over $1,500. Seems like you get a lot for the money, but still, it's not for me.

A Cub wasn't my first choice, but it's what we had and needed to be used. And a Cub is what it is. I've built several hot cars and pickups over the years, but other than the 12v conversion and some planned implement adaptations, the ol' Cub is going to remain stock. It's 66 years old and has earned a "retirement" from hard use.

Wonder if you have to cut a different hole for vertical exhaust.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I asked on the Facebook post about vertical exhaust. He said they could make it work. Not sure how though.
