I'm looking for some advice on which bike engine to use for a turbo project.  A GSXR1100 seems favourite, but which is the best model?? (I understand the earlier models had better bearings).

I have considered a GSF1200 Bandit engine.  Would this not be a better engine to use because it has more cc's to help spin up the turbo quicker and has a lower compression ratio as standard, (I was going to leave the compression as standard on the engine anyway).

Thanks to all who reply to my message some time back about GSXR transmissions.
