Commonwealth Motorcycles Turbo Ducati Diavel So Far @ 235RWHP

Basically, this all started sittin’ around smokin’ Ceegars and dreamin’! In order to keep our head mechanic/service manager occupied for the winter, we decided to have a go. No one was looking at practical. No one cared about beauty, we just wanted to do it and so we are! Not a practical modification, and yeah, it may scrap the wastegate on a serious right hand corner. Not planning on making kits……. But we got first bragging rights and would build one for you! LOL! We apologize to the Ducati Diavel community if we offend. But we are having a hell of a lot of fun!

 
First we started out stripping a brand new Red Carbon Diavel, with 0 miles on the odo……

Then we ordered some goodies…….

Then we sent her off for some custom inconel work….

We had the exhaust built and the airbox….. I personally like the looks of the dual exhaust,
but our master builder (Chad Wells) preferred it this way…..

We have been working on some plumbing, and added a PC to boost fuel. We were hoping to get a PC that also allowed timing adjustments,
but we couldn’t for what ever reason……

Also, added a fuel pressure regulator, since the stock one wouldn’t be able to handle the demand…..

Work is progressing.. We found that we were running out of fuel on boost, so decided to go with a different fuel pump.
Went with a superbike base to house the new fuel pump. Next trip is more Dyno tuninig time, when we find the time that is!
Been busy with other work(no worries we still have time for your project!)
Currently, with about 6 psi of boost we are well over 200 hp and high torque values coming in at low RPMs.
Can’t wait to get back on this and find out what she will do when we push to the 8-9 psi we planned on. Stay tuned!

With some guidance from our good friend D.L. we managed to coax out

235 rear wheel HP at 131 ft/lb torque. Not bad for a mild tune!  2/12 @store.commoto.com
