Turbo Upgrade For Drifting


Recommended Posts

hey all,

im setting my 33 up for drifting, and in turn am looking to upgrade the turbo for a power gain, but more looking for a response improvement, with minimal lag.

mods coming are upgraded fuel pump & pressure regulator, 550cc injectors, power fc

another 33 ive seen set up for drift had a HKS 2540? however after reading a thread on this i was put off this particular turbo because of lag. should i look to go down the path of a high flow? or proceed to purchase a direct bolt on replacement? and if so, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

i have searched, but most of the threads have applications that are for hp gains and top end power, not so much response

cheers

T67 8cm, over 213rwkw from 3300 and peaks at 270rwkw all @ 17psi. See the yellow R34 i put the kit together for, he competed in Super drift D at oran park. The thing is too responsive! It had a gt30 on it B4 and was a pig.

Hi.

There is a RB25 dyno stick thread.

Have a read of it, and then pic the graph that best suits your requirements, and purchase that turbo.

Too easy, and there are lots of results in the 200-240rwkw range.

try drifting with a standard turbo first.. get your skill then go big.. im running a 35/40 .63 for drift with around 18 or so psi hoping for roughly 270 - 290rwkw, i dont want to go over 290kw for drifting, its just stupidly overpowered.

OR

As trent said, the t67, also the TD06 25G L2 will be a killer turbo for drift..

Trent how did robs 32 drift car go with the td06 on it?

it had a 14cm rear housing and was geared well with the OS close ratio box, it was built for Grip but i liked it for drift.... even though you needed to be a rough kent... full boost by 5000 and pulled to 8800 rev limit :thumbsup:

the T67 on the R34 made 40rwkw more between 3000-4500 and at least 10 everywhere else but peaked at the same top power as the GT30 so i know which one i would rather be drifting >_<

cant u sacrifice poor suspension setup and crap tyres to induce loss of traction rather than throwing more power at the rear wheels ?

for a moderator thats uncalled for. If you have a problem with drift theres no need to post in threads about it.

how was that response as a moderator uncalled for?

so because im a moderator i cant have an idea or view on something?

i was just thinking out aloud, there a more than one way to skin a cat and drifting that ive seen requires lots of wheelspin

so one way to induce wheelspin is power, but there are other ways to get wheelspin, suspension, tyres, diff setup etc

and i dont get the cool off comments? it was a suggestion/idea relax....

i dont have a problem with drifting and my response was a serious one

well then the answer to your question , no not really, that would be like putting smaller brakes on your car to save weight while racing ;) (on a track)

I'm not sure if you guys are familiar with turbonetics turbo chargers, but their T3/T4 hybrid ball bearing turbo is quite effective in pushing 290Kw with ease and give massive response. a friend of mine has a 26 with that turbo in his car, and i can tell you the car is violent. it hits full boost around 3300 and pulls massive to 8500 limiter.

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
    • So, whilst the Bogan Cruise Ship is GTG, and I had organised some time today to go on the SAU NSW cruise, my best laid plans where kicked in the balls, well, kicked in my right knee to be exact Now, after a bit of arthroscopic "honing" and tibial band lengthening "modifications" , I'm sitting on a couch in a prescription induced drug haze, watching 5hit on the Youtubes and falling in and out of consciousness......good times
