Are you planning on going any higher in power i.e. bigger turbo etc?

As fitting a GReddy intake plenum normally isn´t really a worthwhile mod if still running stock blower. Don´t take me wrong, it´s not gonna do any harm and might sligthly improve things, but there´s just other mods one would normally do before fitting a GReddy plenum.

The turbo will be plug and play with no hassle at all. Only thing you will need to replace your stock oil line including both banjo bolts with unrestricted ones. This is due to the hybrid needing more oil. Rest will be straight swap.

You do need other mods though if you wanna be able to use the potential of the turbo such as fuel pump, injectors, AFM, remap, etc.

By the time you buy one of those turbo's mod your down pipe for V-band etc and being cheap ebay turbo's not the best it will of been just as cheap and easier to buy the RSP one.

Do yourself a favor and don´t buy one of those cheap ebay tubbies. They are not as good as the ones you will get from RSP or other well known turbo companies and will cost you a lot more than what you are seeing as you need to do quite a bit of custom work to make them fit. This will cost you time and money. The RSP one will be plug and play (you need to fit their oil line) and has been tested by them so guaranteed quality and performance. Imho if you´re looking for 400-450bhp there is NO better solution available on the market than a hybrid stage 3/4 rebuilt turbo. Make sure to have an R34 GTT turbo rebuilt as it will have a slightly bigger exhaust housing giving more stable boost at high rpm.

Dragonballzohai;1366873]hi i spoke to rsp about the hybrid turbo but the price is £800 :eek7: and they will need my old turbo back. For £800 could i get some thing better?

I have just had the rsp turbo fitted and from what i can tell at the min it's going to be mad when mapped up properly. Just edging by on stage 1 mods at the minute with it.

I think that the £800 includes £150 "cover" incase you don't send your old turbo unit back to them. It's so they can buy another from else where worst case scenerio. Like an insurance on the exchange basis.......

ebay-don't even go there to many copys and worth less tat on there.

You pay for what you get
