Hey guys,

I have recently set a power goal of 200 rwkw for my RB20DET R32. At the moment I have between 160rwkw and 170rwkw. The mods I have are:

3inch Exhaust

ZG30 Turbo

Boost controller running 12 - 14 psi

No A/M ECU yet. Looking at the Power FC.

Besides from a FMIC, what mods should I look at for squeezing out an extra 40kw at the wheels?

Yeah, I just bought the car and the front mount is first on my list.

I forgot that I already have a GTR fuel pump installed, looks like FMIC, cold air intake, pod filter and a new tune may be the first lot of stuff I do. Thanks.

remapped ecu, good cold air intake, fuel pump, 3" split dump and get it tuned. i dont think you will make 200 however

What paulr33 said.

#But your 3'' xorst will still be ok as long as it is 3'' from the turbo back.

#Hi flow air filter.

#Remapped ecus are allright.But if you have the money get a pfc.

#Maybee a adj fpr.Becuase at high injector duty you will want constant high pressure in teh fuel rail.I was told this by CRD.

#A hi flow rb20 or 25 turbo and you will make over 200rwkw.

Other than that teh stock turbo wont push beyond 180-190rwkw that easily.You do need all of these,though,if you want to get the max! out of your current setup.You need an upgrade on the turbo.

As you would have allready seen though dynos are conservative to say the least.With many saying their car has 200+rwkw on the stock turbo.When i was at CRD my r33 was tuned to 182rwkw stock turbo with a 2.75'' dump,stock cat and 3.5'' xorst from then on.With all the usual other mods.

I hope your not running 14psi in the heat of the day with that tiny intercooler.After the powah look at the suspension if you havent allready.Then take it to the track and thrash it!!

I am at the point now where i can upgrade the turbo and easily make 220rwkw.

HTH... ;)

Just an update. I have installed a FMIC and an apex'i power intake. It actually made alot more of a difference than I expected it to! Its alot louder now too:). I am almost ready to order a PowerFC for it. Any suggestions where the best place for one is?

hey dude, ive got a 4dr 32 aswell and i made 170rwkw with rb25 turbo, gtr fuel pump, 1bar boost, 3" turbo back exhaust, and shitty hks mushroom pod

no front mount... its on the way though and itll be in the car soon

my point is... get an aftermarket dump pipe!

they do HEAPS

go look at your stocker and youll see that the bit where the wastegate opens goes into a "wall" in the dump pipe... VERY bad design, causes a SH*TLOAD of turbulance when the wastegate opens and makes exhaust gases flow really sh*tty.

also, i assume that by ZG30 turbo, you meant VG30 out of a 300ZX.

if this is the case, go get that hi-flowed.

many people have had good results with hi-flowing that turbo because of its decently large exhaust housing

You may want to figure if the VG30 turbo you have is the steel wheeled version. As you should be able to run 18+psi fairly reliably. And with other sensible mods Such as a Good quality split front/dump, Quality cat (a metal one), GT-R injectors, Regulator and PFC or remap there is no reason why you can't comfortably surpass the 200rwkw figure.

Oh and finding a PFC for a 32 can be difficult. "AP Engineering" make em.. don't know why.

This is why so many 32 owners opt for the remap instead. Wich can net very healthy results if performed correctly.

Good luck anyway :P

sure r u? have you driven one? big call if you havent.

imo most remaps are just stock tune with fc and speed limiter removed

a remaped ecu(tune by Adelaides Guru) and just a stock wt fcd comp were both tested out on Huddys car both power curves were exactly the same?

oh and VG30 turbo's never came with steel rear wheel from the factory.

AS everyone else has mentioned:

FMIC (which you have now)

Apexi air filter (whic you have now)

3" dump all the way through (with a "CUSTOM" cat :D )

PFC is the way to go if you can afford it but there is nothing wrong with getting a ECU remap by someone like Dr Drift, Sams results kinda speak for themselves!!!!

If you want info on the "CHEAPEST" AP Engineered Power FC then PM :)

Other than that good luck with your power figure and hope you get what your looking for...

Cheers B

    • Oof, glad that it seems have gone much better than it could have. I have seen some pretty terrible tow truck handling just as a bystander. Zero fvcks given and no regard for the cars at all. Also broke down with fuel pump issues the other week as the wiring was on its way out. Roadside assistance guy used to have a Skyline and was looking at Stageas on the market. The tow truck driver also used to own a high powered Skyline and was telling stories about that. Apparently too fast to have any issues with being pulled over... Makes all the difference dealing with people who actually know their cars and care.
    • I had quite the scare last night. I was on the highway just toying around with an Audi. Right after an extended WOT pull, I lost all power. I cruised to a stop on the side of the highway and realized I had no fuel pressure. I keyed on/off a few times and could hear both pumps priming but pressure was still non existent. When you need a towing on a highway in Quebec, it's an automatic call to the provincial police. They don't mess around, they'll gladly destroy your car to get it off the highway asap. I pulled my bumper off as quickly as I could as to not have it destroyed getting it onto the truck. I got lucky as the tow driver was a car guy. He entertained the police while I finished up popping my bumper off and sticking it in my window. As we started taking off, the police drove by the tow driver to tell him we couldn't leave with the bumper sticking out the window. He pulled off on the first exit he saw, did a u turn and got right back on the highway in the direction of home lol.  With no leak insight, the only thing I could think of was a torn FPR diaphragm or a popped hose inside my fuel tank. This morning on removal of my Radium twin pump hanger, one pump hose was completely shredded and the other was on the verge of the same fate. Both hoses had swelled to double their size... I have no idea how I ended up not using submersible hose but clearly that's what happened. To make things even worst, Radium supplies submersible hose with the hanger... So either they supplied the wrong hose or I had the wrong hose laying around when I assembled it.  Looking over logs, my fuel pressure dropped to 0 roughly 10 seconds after a WOT pull. I was cruising and I'm confident the motors fine. Had that happened 10 seconds earlier, I'd more then likely be pulling the motor out. New hose arrives tomorrow, I'll put it back together then. 
    • Post 2 in this thread is my C34 with a R34 manual console, you can see it is a tiny bit different but not noticeable, and clips straight in. Only issue is you have to move the g sensor a little with the manual console.
