Fist time when dWRENCHED.com features a Sports Bike !

Story goes like this :

''Walt's Turbocharged Ducati 999 project.

The project bike is a 2003 Ducati 999S and one of 200 bikes sold in the US for 2003. In March of 2003 I had the bike stripped of all its body work and had it repainted as a Neil Hodgson SBK replica. I took the bike in July 2003 to the World Superbike race at Laguna Seca. During that race weekend Ducati announced they would offer the 999R Fila replica. I was the only known Fila replica Ducati knew of. Attached is a photo of that bike when I entered it in the MotoEuro Magazine bike show at Laguna Seca and took Best in Show. Ducati North America was kind enough to send me a titanium full race exhaust system which was not available to the general public. Neil Hodgson has signed my gas tank which was a great honor. Since then I had the frame painted red, added a Ducati slipper clutch and BST carbon fiber rims.

I now have that bike apart in my garage (where I park my car, not a shop) and this is my plans for the bike:

1. I've purchased a Garrett GT2860RS turbocharger. I plan on a 54mm 2 into 1 exhaust system that will be ceramic coated along with the turbo.
2. The turbo will pass through a duel intercoolers, one located on each side of the bike which will feed into the custom air box with 4 fuel injectors and two water/methanol injectors.
3. Engine modification will be forged pistons, chrome moly rods, thermal barrier coated piston tops and moly coated skirts, HD clutch springs.''

You can see below the bike with all the mods.
