Hi all,

Where is the best place to purchase some new turbos. I have a R33 GTR running approx 400BHP and am just having a look at the moment really as I would like to take her upto around the 500BHP mark.

Where is the best place for me to start, would taking her to say abbey be a good place to go, also any idea what sort of money ill be looking at for another 100BHP at all and also what would be the best way to go about it modification wise? She is currently stage 1 tuned with the spec as follows:

* Full Stage 1 Tune - Running around 400BHP
* Buddyclub Downpipe
* Buddyclub Decat Pipe
* HKS Induction Kit
* Titanium Cat-Back Exhaust
* Nismo Clutch
* Apexi AVCR Boost Controller (Black)
* HKS Lowering Springs
* GReddy Oil Filler Cap
* Greddy Radiator Cap
* Greddy Air Division Cooling Plate
* Cusco Polished Strut Brace
* Full Set of Earls Braided Hoses
* Remapped ECU by 'Garage D' - To run 1 BAR Boost

Many thanks in advance and any advice would be great cheers

Jamie

chap called escoshardcore or something from the US was selling 2850-5s a while back..there prob a bit too big but you could get some 2860-7s.

or some HKS 2510s...check the for sale section see if there is anything about or put up a wanted post perhaps someone a pair you can buy.

cams & pulleys too, also think about forged pistons & gasket set........

alot of money to get that extra 100 bhp mate.

i would guess at approx (off the top of my head)

£2500 labour
£1400 tubbies 2860-5 (2860-7's are too "laggy" for 500bhp and not required)
£200 turbo elbows
£500 injectors
£600 AFM's
£400 fuel pump
£??? cams
£??? pulleys
£500 all oils, seals & gaskets
£300 mapping

optional, power FC / Fcon etc

its not far off a bottom end rebuild

seems theyve gone up to near 100 now.

http://www.gtr.co.uk/forum/128622-z32-afm-x2.html

but for z32s chk out ebay, 300zx forum, skylineownersclub, sxoc forum...sxoc has loads of parts on a daily basis. just put a wanted post up on there. either way 600quid is wild.

for the chap who wrote this thread - my advice put a wanted post up on this forum for bits...you normally get good feedback.

Ok done a little shopping for you.
Injectors Sard 700cc $643 from RHD
Afm's Nismo $416 each from RHD. Did'nt think they were that exspensive.
The following are from Joe at Powerhouse Racing who is a trader on here and is doing a deal on all Tomei parts. I recently purchased the following from him. These are the prices on his site, you will get upto 20% off that again. Good lad to do buisness with, will do so again in the future.
Fuel Pump $450
Cams Type B $663
Pulleys $170 each.
Then for Turbos. There is currently a set of 2860-5 for sale in the parts section for £200. They need a rebuild which will cost another 5-600pounds. So for say £800 you have a brand new set of tubbies.
