  1. Bump. Any interest in this stuff? Would rather not bin it all. Taking offers
  2. I have a brand new EPMAN adjustable steering wheel spacer (goes between wheel and boss kit) i am selling jf you are interested.
  3. Hi guys, Selling parts of my GT3076 setup that was on my RB25. Basically turns an internally gated GT3076 into external gate, to use with standard intake manifold etc. This allows much better boost control and allowed mine to make more boost down low, in circumstances where the factory Garret IW wasn't holding shut. Includes: - RB25DET factory cast manifold - Steel spacer to fit GT30 sized turbo - Genuine Garrett GT3076 .82 rear housing (5 bolt outlet flange, T3 inlet) with external wastegate flange professionally welded on (to suit Turbosmart HyperGate 45) Internal gate welded shut. - Dump pipe to suit 5 bolt turbo flange with external gate plumbed back in (including flex join) - Modified 'J' pipe with relocated AAC pipe & GFB Respons BOV (recirculate or vent to atmo) - Modified OEM heat shield - Modified OEM hotside intercooler pipe (to accommodate 2" 90* bend from comp outlet) - Steel brace (Gibson motorsport inspired) to support turbo and prevent stud flex/warpage This setup worked really well and I am only selling as I have put a 6boost manifold on. All you need is a Turbosmart HyperGate 45 and the dump/ wastegate pipe should all line up. $300 ono for the whole lot. Located Blacktown, NSW. PM for more details.
  4. How does the research not help?! How does the turbo manufacturer's answer not help?! Don't use a restrictor. Simple. The turbo is obviously not designed to use the factory oil feed. For turbo longevity you need a new oil feed that doesnt have a restrictor. But given your response to everyone else's advice thus far I think I'll leave you to it.
  5. OP: Do some research and learn what purpose the restrictor actually serves. It will answer all of your questions. This is a good start: https://www.turbobygarrett.com/turbobygarrett/oil_restrictor
  6. I think the stock oil feed has a restrictor in built in the banjo bolt. I would suggest leaving the restrictor out if its a journal bearing turbo. You also need to make sure the oil drain is done right for 2 reasons; 1. If it doesnt flow properly, you'll have too much oil pressure in the turbo cartridge and potentially blow oil past the seals. 2. If it leaks, its a great way to start an oil fire if it ends up spraying on hot exhaust parts. (Especially if the thing is running leaner than a marathon runner and everything is baking hot)
  7. Is the new POS turbo a ball bearing or journal bearing unit? If it's a journal bearing it will need plenty of oil flow to keep the bearing suspended, so probably don't need the restrictor. If its a BB turbo then leave restrictor in. Unless the oil seals are made of cheese so the manufacturers supplied a restrictor to prevent them from leaking.
  8. Honestly mate, You are better off buying this OP6 turbo (see pic below) and selling all the aftermarket stuff you bought. The OP6 (RB25NEO) turbo should bolt straight up and you can use all the OEM shit. Will cost you much less in the long run and will work as designed by Nissan, not dodge backyard customs
  9. Thanks heaps for taking the time to reply Dale- i very much appreciate it. I decided to keep the 3076 as it meets my needs for now. I have ordered a brand new 6boost with a single entry T3/ ext gate and got a new T3 / V band rear housing to go with it. I'm interested to see if it increases power/response but will be happy with just an increase in reliability and decrease in likelihood of turbo falling off the manifold!! Cheers!!
  10. Hate to thread jack- but OP do you also realise you will need a tune (or at least some dyno time to check everything) after you get it running?
  11. Disco i have a complete R33 intake manifold lying around if you want to borrow for testing/ playing around. At Blacktown NSW and ill be there on Sunday if you want to pick it up.
  12. HI SAUers, I have an R33 with a GT3076R on stock manifold with external gate welded to the exhaust housing. It was worked well but I am now upgrading the manifold to a high mount 6boost because my studs/nuts keep coming loose and I've had enough. I need to buy a new rear housing when I upgrade manifolds because the way the gate is welded to the current one means it wont fit. I have found a fair priced used 6boost manifold but it is a T4 twin entry (not twin scroll as it has only one gate provision?) QUESTION: Can I buy a T4 flanged rear housing that will fit the GT3076 in .82? Will it give me any benefit over the T3 flanged housing? Should I just buy a brand new T3 flanged 6Boost and get a T3 flanged housing. Thanks all Chris
