Yeah i talked to the creator, he runs it at Bonneville, it's the smallest ihi turbo online, only hits 8lbs of boost, and and he said the ecu jacks it up after 50 iirc
He said he is going to try a megasquirt setup to try and bypass the ecu

And all smog equipment is still on it and fully street legal in California which is crazy

Also know that he has an account on here and might chime in

I saw the actual bike at the Long Beach Motorcycle show. Looked like a very clean setup. Couldn't find where the turbo was. Air intake was pretty obvious, right below the headlights.

The turbo setup is under the tank, and that was one of 2 added filters, it has 3 total iirc including stock

Actually, Triumph was a no show, so no new Triumph bikes on display. I wonder if port strike had something to do with it.

it is probably a turbo like the one below (the smallest in the world :P)
there isn't a big enough volume of air leaving the engine to spool something much bigger.
