[turbobike] Kawasaki ZX-9R and turbo's

Hi,

I own a Kawasaki ZX-9R Ninja (B1) and am looking to bolt a turbo on.
I have been told that ZX-9R's blow head gaskets regularly is this true?
Has anyone had any experience of bolting a turbo on to a ZX-9R if so is
there anything else that I need to be aware of?
I am looking to keep stock engine parts and use a spacer under the cylinders
to lower the compression ratio.
Advice:-
What turbo should I fit?
What should I drop the compression ratio to 9:1?
What BHP gain can I realistically expect to gain using unleaded fuel from
the gas stations?
What boost can I run at?
What additives can I use to cool the burn so I can increase the boost?

lots of questions...

Phil
