Thanks mate. Anything else I need or will that cover it? This job has been a pain in the ass and I'm only half way through! I still need to get some new turbos on and put it all back together.

Make sure you are careful how you fit the braided lines. I was advised to stick with the standard hoses as its tough keeping the braided hoses away from the heat under there.

Nearly finished mine now. Just got top pipes to go. I also found a neat trick for covering the turbo inlets to prevent rubbish/small migratory hamsters getting in there.

Tear apart a shopping bag and use an electrical tie to secure it around the inlet. If you are mega tight like me, reverse the electrical tie and you will be able to take it off and reuse it later because the teath won't engage with the strip.

Thanks for the advice. Standard pipes will save me money too

Got any pics of your "trick"? I'm interested to see what you mean exactly.

Cheers

i'll get a picture later on if I can. Basically, rather than bending the electrical tie round the normal way, go the other way and push it through the bit with the ratchet in. The little hook in there will run up and down the smooth side of the strap as opposed to the toothed side. It will provide enough force to hold the bag on.

I stuck with the standard pipes as if something does go wrong down there it's just a whole load of more problems I could do without. They are a little more tricky to get the turbos in but hey, there we are.

Watch out that you don't damage the oil line sealing surfaces like I did. When I pulled out the turbos and replaced them with dash 5's. I put the socket down over theoil line bolt at the turbo and loosened it. What I didn't realise was the back oil line fitting had a hex shape to it and then as I twisted the ratchet, I curled up the corners of the block and the crush washer wouldn't seal. needless to say the who job had to be done over twice, just to replace the rear oil line. Oh and don't forget to tighten the cooling lines as I did on the second assembly and had to pull the front out again to get at it. End result I changed them 2 and a half times for the one job. I was so P**sed off.

FINISHED!!!!

Cranked the car on Saturday evening and it only bloody works! I'm well chuffed having done the job with no experience of engines whatsoever. Just need two elbow studs and nuts and all is finished. Need to get it re-mapped now. Thinking of cams beforehand though :-)

in the middle of doing it, have the oem's off the past few weeks, and the new ones turned up yesterday so need a nice day to go fit them, taking them off wasnt half as bad as i though, but after leaving it so long to put the others back on i can see me looking for pics of what goes where lol

Yes, The Lambda sensor is the Oxygen sensor, the two names are used interchangeably for the most part, your 32 should have one (or two) allready that should work with the R34 engine I think, You will need to confirm that though.

I didnt realise how old that post was I just replied to

Mick, You should have no real problem putting things back, Bolting turbos on isnt complicated really, Just make sure you prime them with oil and all will be good

I changed mine whilst the engine was out, so it was a straight forward job without any hassle

Thumbs down

Oh sure! You had to put that in there !
The car is the hardest car to work on that I have ever had, and I've had nearly 40 cars (most high performance) by now and srtipped at least half of them down to a shell. After all the work I've done to my R32, I spun a rod bearing and now I have to pull my newly rebuilt engine again. I'm not looking forward to THAT !

Yeah...Nah.

I've done many an engine conversion etc etc in the past, but had a quick look when I imported my R32 GTR and decided to just pay someone to fit my 2860's

Funnily enough I have never regretted that decision

I really love to work on cars and modify them for the better, (realative term). I actually had someone do some work for me ( a respected shop) and as I watched the guy butcher parts and strip nuts and break bolts and parts, I was horrified. I usually do all my own work (the whole car) as I was an Aircraft Engineer years ago and I'm affraid my standars are to high for most guys. My son who has a GTS-T has a buddy at his work who is a Lamborghini mechanic. I let him now work on my car when I don't have time, (which now a days seems to be all the time) . I had dash 10's on after I blew the seals in the factory turbos. I a week later bought dash 5's, put them on and really like them. They should have had those on coming out of the factory. This car, I have to say is heinous to work on some times but I love it and they would have to rip it from my dead cold fingers to take it away from me.
