its costly, like an arm and a leg :D
dunno m8 theres expensive and very expensive stuff you could use to get 450horses, depends on what brands you go for and where you shop
it will take you thousands of €

You will be looking at thefollowing I'd say at least, AFM, Apexi Power Fc, Bigger injectors, Fuel pump, a new turbo or hybrid (steel internals stock) turbo, large FMIC.... Then you would be looking at decent suspension, bigger brakes (Gtr brembo swap) etc

I would say at least 2-3 Grand just for the bits......

Theres a few people on here that will be able to tell you down to the pound, as they have that sort of power under the hood, the lucky bar stewards.

Well.. I am hoping for mine to be about 430-450 when its mapped up, this is what i have done. Full engine rebuild consisting of...
87mm wiseco forged pistons
New oem con rod studs and bolts
New oem oil pump
New oem water pump
Trust 1.6mm metal head gasket
Tomei pon cams 256 deg 8.5mm lift in/ex
Ported head
Greddy kevlar timing belt
New tensioner and idler wheels
New valve stem oil seals
Nismo 740cc injectors
Nismo fuel pump
Nismo thermostat
Tomei fuel pressure regulator
Renew all bearings and gaskets
HKS 2835 turbo kit
Greddy clear cam cover
Q45 afm
Mocal 19row oil cooler
Apexi power fc
Greddy profec boost controller

Drivetrain wise its std apart from an os giken twin plate clutch.

Brakes have been mildly upgraded with r32 gtr discs which have been drilled, Red stuff pads, Nismo braided hoses and race spec brake fluid (castrol).

It already had coilovers fitted, front and rear strut braces a fmic and full turbo back exhaust.

All work has been done by me and a work colleague except the rebore and hone. So labour was free. Parts wise if you look about and research then it need not cost an arm and a leg. I have spent Roughly £4k Which for the above spec is good going imo.

Sorry for the long post, and sort of hi jack, but i wanted to show the spec and costings involved.

Also bear in mind that a bottom end rebuild may not be nessesary, but i had oil breather problems, due to broken ringlands, so had no choice really.

You do not need a full rebuild for 400-450hp ;)

What I would do is this:
Turbo upgrade
550cc injectors
Walbro 255 fuel pump
Turbo Elbow
Downpipe
Full de-cat system
Power FC
Boost Controller
Pon Cams
S/S Head gasket
FMIC
Methanol Injection
Possibly a Greddy plenum
Damn good remap!


Of course this will only achieve power, I strongly suggest you uprate brakes etc but it's not mandatory. :)

Crank wont last long if its driven hard.
i was talking to indigo-gt and the said the gtst crank is good for anywhere between 650-750 bhp as im looking to rebuild gtst to around 550bhp

but im gonna use the gtr crank rods and pistons instead
