I have been over on another site but I thought it was unfair to not show my swap here as well. I started with a rolling SS15, a Yanmar L100 out of a generator and a turbo off of a skid loader. I managed to get everything under the hood without cutting and it runs really good. It doesn't make any boost but it looks cool. Here are a few pictures.

I have just done this same thing to a car and people called me crazy. If you get that turbo putting out boost that will be awesome. I could imagine the look on my neighbors face as he hears me spool up and power into the snow with an engine like that haha. I have another Sears roller I am holding on to just so I can make a wicked snow blower with, its all about RPMs for that so I'll be looking for a high RPM power plant.
When your done what are your plans for this? Working or just having some fun?

Before I put the muffler on you could hear it spool up some, but these little motors are a lot nosier than the 16hp briggs I had in it. I'm stuck in the desert for the next 3 years but my plan is to move to the south when I retire and use the tractor on a big garden. Hopefully there will be a garden tractor pulling club near by and I can get my daughter interested in that as well.
