What Sort Of Boost On R33 Gts-t?


Recommended Posts

Hello, i have a r33 gtst with following mods:

aftermarket FMIC

3in kakimoto exhaust system with 3inch cat & 3in dump pipe.(soon to be installed)

HKS pod filter

Kind of new to the turbo side of cars so just have a few quick questions , What kind of boost would i be running with those mods usually?

As i'm thinking of installing a boost controller and setting it to 10psi (stock turbo), but maybe it's already running that ammount of boost ?

i would have to get a boost guage to find out what sort of boost i'm getting now wouldn't i, the stock boost guage in the dash only goes to 7psi right?

cheers ;):P

how much do they start from?, besides i bought the turbotech one from ebay, the thread on this forum suggests they are very good...? i'm only looking to set it to 10/11psi boost at the moment

hey mate, if ur gonna get the turbotech, def get a boost guage. my mate got a speco one from http://www.recklessmotorsport.com.au/ for $30 and its pretty accurate.

    • This is the famous "why is there a stud that stops me putting the rear wheel on the front?" question. There is no functional difference except for the tyre size. Nissan put a little stud onto the rear wheel so you couldn't put the fatty on the front, is all. Stud is easily removed, problem goes away.
    • Trust me mate, you've got way more important things in your life to spend your time thinking about.  Both rims are 18x8 with 30 offset. Put some tyres on and forget about it. 
    • No scam Murray"...........so why are the wheel rims stamped rear or front? the owner's manual refers to different tyre sizes front to rear but doesn't explain anything about rim differences.
    • Cars all over the world are frequently having the wheels rotated front to back to even out tyre wear. I'm thinking a front rim and rear rim is something like a right handed and left handed screwdriver.  You didn't have to measure your rims, they are both 18 inches rims, 8 inches wide with a 30 offset. What were you measuring when you were trying to find discrepancies between the rims? Looks like the only thing you need to sort out is a matching set of rubber for them.  But if this was just a troll post, good job mate you got me. 
    • Been doing some part collecting  first we have the oil pump blank because of the external pump the engine will now have  new set of cam gears from prp, my old ones were fine but I like the locking system prp have come up with on their versions  new timing belt, tensioner, idler, washer and crank gear  brand new rear main seal housing just because  and all new seals from nitto (they came in the full gasket kit)
