R33 GTS-T Motor Build Help Wanted!
Hey guys! I'm pretty new here, but this is my 3rd go around with a R33 GTS-T. First one got T-Boned when I was stationed in Japan, the second was stolen by a "friend" of mine when I was deployed and here I am with the 3rd.
I have had some history with this GTS-T when I T-Boned my first. I parted it out to a friend who brought it back with him in 2007. Since then, he has put some time and money into rebuilding the motors internals, porting and polishing it with a powder coat finish. The motor has not made its way back into a running condition, and I will be shipping it to Vegas to make things right with it.
Where I am on the build right now is I am looking for help picking a proper turbo upgrade from the almost 10 year stock turbo that is with it. I am also looking for any help either swapping or re-working the old wiring harness for it. Also, any suggestions on a proper intake and exhaust manifold would be great as well.
Here is a list of things that are already done on the GTS-T :
Trust Downpipe 3.5 inch and Exhaust
E-Manage + HUD for Upgraded ECU
Ported, Polished, Milld and Powder Coated Motor
tomeii cam sprockets
Stainless Steel Head Gaskets + Forged Fuel Rail and Pistons
Looking to get ~350-400RWHP and "daily" maybe 2-3 days a week. I have a job that allows me to work from home, and I would basically be getting the usuals or hitting the speedway with it here in Vegas.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
