Custom Turbocharger kit

Has anybody created their own Intercooler? Piping?
and maybe interchanged a tiny turbo (Garett T-25) and Bypass valve from a car onto their 125cc or 250cc dirt bike?

Don't worry im not looking for crazy track numbers or reliability. I jus want to do something different, and thought maybe I should ask the experts before I run into trouble.

Is this reasonable? and if its not.. is their any ways around it? while ending up with a turbocharged dirtbike?

Thanks alot

Nope. I don't have a busa. That was the bike my dad owned. I couldn't handle a busa right now . considering I have no street bike experience and im 5'7 135lbs.
I want to know this for a dirtike.

You want to turbo a 2-stroke dirt bike? I don't think that would work out too well.

turbocharging a 2 stroke isnt a good idea. it messes with the fuel mixture which is NECESSARY to be right on 2 strokes, or you're burning up a piston, and possibly crank bearings.

now a 4 stroke, it MAY be possible. just for the hell of it, I'd try it on an EX500 or a 250. it'd sure be an original idea.

I've seen some turbo kits for quads like 400EX and YFZ450. They were sick but they were also about $5k. Ouch. It doubled the HP, though.
