Since I am doing some R&D for Bullseye Power I wanted to know what is your current motor displacement and is it with uprated internals or what is your next motor setup (if you know for sure).

Please pick a bottom end and head option

I currently am asking RIPS to build me a 3.0, but during the in between time I will be building another motor for R&D. I will try to do as much turbo comparisions as possible (this is out of my pocket) against the Bullseye Power Turbos to see what will flow better.

Any input would be appreciated.

I am willing to try anything within a budget. I currently have the following items to work with more to come:
Jun intake manifold with a Q45 throttle body
Greddy manifold
Stock Manifold

Stock exhaust manifold
Custom top mount manifolds with T3 flanges (can get T2-T3 flanges)
Working on a custom T4 manifold

Stock R34 turbos
HKS 2530's turbo
working on getting a T04Z

HKS 264 in and ex cams
HKS Step 2 272 in cam
HKS Step 2 280 ex cam
Tomei 280 11.50 lift in and ex cams

Tomei Type C springs and retainers
Tomei lifters
HKS step 2 springs and retainers

HKS 100mm exhaust with Cat
ARC 100mm titanium exhaust with no cat
Nismo downpipe 2 x 70mm-80mm
ATTKD titanium downpipe 2 x 76mm-80mm
Stock 02 housing (extension)
ATTKD 76.5mm o2 housing (extension)
Custom 3" o2 housings for S200's

Factory FMIC
Greddy 5 row dual inlet FMIC

Stock R34 444cc injectors
Nismo 555cc injectors
RC 750cc injectors
RC 1000cc injectors
2 Greddy fuel rails
Apexi 280lph pump with custom swirl pot and Weldon pump

AEM EMS with Map setup

RIPS have experience on building 3.0's and they are having custom work done and custom parts made for my needs :smokin:

I've got a complete head, an empty block, and an oil pan left over from my rebuild. I figure my current refreshed engine should last me at least long enough for me to bore it out to 2.8, collect and install forged internals, and work on the head - basically my idea of a dream engine. Hopefully I'll be able to build it myself as well - that would be enormously satisfying.

HKS 0.5 overbore pistons going in on the 6th....so 2.7. Wish I could swing the 2.8 but it's not in the cards this time around, plus all the N1 blocks I used to see everyday went AWOL

It'll be standard rods/crank/head and T517z's 8cm.


How have the turbo comparison's been coming, if at all?

:eek: well, I'm having to look at this a lot quicker than I thought -

My ideal spec would be: R32 block, R33 crank, head from either, forged pistons, uprated conrod bolts, uprated bearing shells, Tomei Poncams, stock exhaust manifold, hard pipes, stock FMIC, GT-SS turbos, and supporting mods.

Will look at the Tomei complete engine offered to me tomorrow - sounds groovy. bad luck, but then good luck:squintdan

christ, that's not confidence-inspiring, as my oil pump is an N1. How long did it last before it broke?

well I know exactly how many miles I've put on my pumps (1500) so I guess I can trust them for a bit.

One thing breaks, the whole thing goes. <sigh>
