Cool. What are your plans for tuning it? Ducati makes it difficult for boost mapping etc.

Tanks!

I am a tuner, I have a dynamometer workshop in Brazil and I am specialized in this area (BH MOTORACING)
in this model I make the map directly on the ECU, but to have more resources I will use a programmable FuelTech FT550 injection parallel to the original injection that allows a series of adjustments and functions such as, in addition to the “normal” adjustments, I can do traction control, anti-weeling, boost by gear etc.

Good stuff, looking forward to seeing your result. I too have a twin turbo 999S.

Here is a link How to get absolute maximum power from 999s? LANDSPEED with a few pictures of the Twin Turbo 999 while I was developing it. This one does go around corners. But I do have a real 999S for the streets. I am too old for road racing anymore…and was never as fast as I thought I was. 😁. Some tricks inside those heads it’s pretty fast but this is a multi year project, while I continue to refine the aero and up the boost before we switch to nitromethane….our TL is a fairly radical motor too with lots of nitrous in a wet kit I designed and also holds 2 FIM World Records .

The Patto's at Ducati Bunbury in Western Australia have got a great series of Yootoob playlists on their various turbo'd drag racing endeavours. Amongst them just happens to be a turbo Streetfighter. It's not a super-serious effort like their turbo 900SS (fastest 2 valve Ducati in the world) or incredible turbo 749R builds but is still worth a look:

Oh man, this is super cool. The original posts and all the following ones too. I'd be terrified to ride it.
