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

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

I was looking into this too, what's the difference (if any) when you do the same conversion on the NEO RB25DE in a 1999 R34?

So, what needs to be swapped/changed then (not added to engine or the very obvious things like "fit a turbo huhuhu" :p)

Pistons (is high comp, 9? Swap to low, 8,5?)
Injectors (is? Swap for, 444cc?)
Ecu (swap for turbo one, what about cables to ecu? Any more values/gauges [except boost, but ecu dont care about boost anyway right])
Could swap to turbo plenum (apparently they arent the same)
What about AFM
Anything more? Sensors?

My problem is that my last skyline is a gts-4 so swapping for a regular rb25det wont work :)
And someone already converted to turbo and burnt a piston :D so now i need to figure out what he didnt do while i fix the engine ;) ( i already know there are high comp pistons in it, mistake #1 )
