I'll ignore the fact your profile says 'GTR' for the moment and try help you. Anything is possible with the correct amount of time and money to spend on it, however, the quickest and cheapest way to do this is just to buy a new turbo'd engine and swap it over. To turbocharge an n/a engine involves massive amounts of work with compression ratios and everything else.

If i was you mate i would either buy a rb25det.........or RB26debtt..

It has been done on a nonturbed rb25, but go for rb25deturbo, it would be cheaper in the long run and youll have cash left over for upgrades.... :D

if you can fit it yourself , just the engine price and delivery......

Not sure how much you would be charged by a garage. Should be around £500+

Am i better off going for a standard twin turbo or a single aftermarket turbo?
That would be upto what kind of power you want....

If you went rb26dett you would have to buy the engine, there not cheap, fitting, then mods....

With that moneys you spent on the engine fitting etc you could of bought a tdo6 kit and a few other nesacary (sp) mods... Then youd be running 500bhp ..on an rb25det..

the only reason i ask is cuz i am currently modifying my r32 to sell ( im going to keep it for 6 months or so to enjoy the fruits of my labour lol), i bought it as a salvage and it is going for its mot in 2 weeks time. i am going to be doing the usual body kit and spray job but what would you all be looking for if you were going to buy a skyline r32?
and also for the spray job what colour do you rekon? let me now

Hesh is putting a rb26debtt in his 4 door 33......
In the lastest jap performance magazine, a women has a non tub 33 rolling roaded at 127bhp.... She put on a supercharger... its now 250....

When an RB25det is 250 standard.... Rb26dett 280+bhp....
You wont be disappointed.
