i don't know the prices but heres alist to start with,r33 gtst bits,ecu,exhaust manifold,turbo,oil and water feed and return pipes ,downpipe,gaskets,intercooler+pipework airbox or aftermaket air filter,injectors and you need to look if you have an turbo oil return bung its on the block underneath where the turbo would sit,aftermarket boost gauge would be good

https://www.skylineowners.com/forum/s...d.php?t=142304 there the same engine except pistons and oil squirters to cool the pistons take a look at the link theres lots of options,just need to find someone breaking a gtst and buy the bits in one go,you'll need a 70mm+ holesaw for steel to fit the intercooler

its most likely more cost effective to pull the motor and swap to a tutbo one..

this gives you scope for tuning later

i was thinking that mate but atm im looking at 1000 (roughly) to turbo mine and it will be able to run up to 350bhp which for me personaly is more than enough after that it just starts getting hectic.lol.

i dought i will be able to find a gtst engine AND get it fitted for 1000

cheers

about 400,i got all the bits from a chap on here which put a rod through the block was about 4 years ago and fitted it all on my christmas hols 4 years ago nearly and never looked back,the rb25de+t is a better drive less turbo lag especially when your in the 400bhp range,oh you'll need a resirc valve or bov
