Hello,

I came across these "new" turbos from HKS GT III series. They appear to be fitted with billet compressors? Does anyone know specs on these turbos or if anyone is using them in their RB26/28?

I'm thinking to migrate from 2860-9's to -5's due the stroker 2.8L I'm building but this option might be worth to look?:confused:

Cannot justify the cost at over £3k and also on a 2.6 and even 2.8 they appear laggy when compared to the 2530 with only a little more top end.. Save your money and buy a set of -5 turbos.

As said better off buying a set of 2530 which Nick has for sale at a good price. New spec -5 are a noticeable improvement over the older spec.

I would have bought them myself but too many other things tied up the cash at the mo.
Well I ain't in any rush as they ain't going down in value :chuckle:

What are the differences between the RS and SS variants?:confused:

Also, the HKS 2530's are a tad larger than the 2860-5's correct?
Look minimal on that chart but will.be slightly noticeable on the dyno or right foot. Broader band.

I saw the hks advert they look good. How much are they? Are they Std mount or top fit ?
Rs kit is 3k

The gt3 ss kit is about 300 cheaper

Article this month on the Hks street performer gtr sporting them
(Street and track article)

Least Hks now do a bolt on turbo option for gtr (twins)

Ron at RK has my previous set of -5s with billet wheels if anyone wants them.
They were great but I wanted to try the twin EFR kit.

I was considering this set of turbos for my new engine, but as FRRACER stated, it might be better to get the GT2530 instead... so I am hesitating
btw, pardon my ignorance. What is -5 turbo? garrett??
