hello there im not really that clued up on the skyline engine as yet, but i have bought a r33 gtst rb25det skyline and it has rolling road printout for 472bhp i was just wondering how hard is it to get this power all i can see is it having is a hks turbo running one bar. it does feel fast but im not sure about that bhp.

also what boost can my engine take if it is standard ???

thanks, matty

Matty - Where abouts are you from? If you're anywhere near Somerset (TA19 9DU) we can run the car on our 1,200bhp Dyno Dynamics rolling road to check everything out (boost, fuel, torque, power etc etc) as well as get about the most accurate power reading available short of removing the engine and bolting it to a very good engine dyno. We'll be able to examine a graph plotting the boost pressure throughout the rev range as well as the air-fuel ratio, plus give you power at the wheels and calculated flywheel power and torque. Drop me a PM if you would like to book in to do so :)

Road trip! :dogpile: No worries, good luck sorting it out and getting a true power figure for it, these things can often be hard to gauge.
