Prob been asked a million times before but please go easy on me :D

Ive just brought a standard R33 GTR, is it safe to run 1 bar with just a boost controller and filter and exhaust, would i need a management/fuelling system?? Are there any others issues I need to be aware of eg clutch/gearbox and what kind of power would I be getting

Cheers

1 bar is safe i think for every thing bar the tubbies if they are std
From experience i would not run ceramic tubbies at 1 bar permanently every one else will let you know all about the other stuff as i am still learning myself :confused:

Thanks.....
With uprated turbos whats the boost limit with a boost controller and engine management upgrade...Im having the bottom end rebuilt and am thinking of having new turbos, im also having a high flow oil pump, metal inlet gaskets and an oil cooler fitted so could I run 1.2 bar??

Sorry mate i am no expert in the field i am just going on what i have learnt from other people and i am sure i will be corrected if i am wrong
The tubbies i got from turbo technics will run 1.3 bar all day and spike to 1.5 bar when needed
I have been advised that at the higher boosts you need a steel head gasket!!!
I am fitting one to mine as i plan to run 1.2 bar on a day to day basis
The spec you have quoted should run 1.2 bar easily and still be safe :D

Standard tubbies no more than 1 bar

Standard h/gasket no more than 1.2 bar

This is what i hear more often than not but is by no means "the law"

Are there any others issues I need to be aware of eg clutch/gearbox
some owner's standard gearbox's have withstood huge power output.....
mine didnt :eek: nor did my clutch :)
