Easy steps...

1. Set the goals based on the motor spec and what your willing to push it too.

Street or track

Response or outright power

2. Read the RB26 dyno sticky, see what turbo then fits your aims (some turbos make more power, some better RPM response/transient response etc)

3. Once you decide on the turbo (or a few options) hit the search with that turbo ID.

Although my guess you'll either have the Garrett -9's for response, or the -5's for the bigger top end, its pretty much the norm and it doesnt sound to me like you have a full house motor so those two would be in the limits of a mild build

And if that is the case... read this thread:


Basically anything would be better than a t04e...

    • I still have Garrett parts to build GTX2860 if interested. 
    • I reckon coilpacks too. Mine went at exactly 100,000kms
    • In the process of riding up my car lol, am trying to get a decent looking oil cap. Some say they are fine to fit all RBs or even all Nissan, others like a stock GTR oil cap say rb20/25/26 but they won't fit a neo rb25. Is this due to the stock plastic engine cover or is there something else different?
    • Well Coolant pressure increased significantly under + boost.  Enough to bypass rad cap Coolant pressure normal under low load conditions and no overheating. Head off and you can see where it was bypassing the cylinder ring to coolant chamber on both head and gasket. Head cracked tested and serviced, all good. Block was only visually inspected, so please god ...  let that be ok   You could argue that is a Head gasket failure but it was still very much a complete unbroken gasket. So suggests some stretch on the factory head bolts. I know others that have had the same as above and not even taken the head off, just put in studs and  continued on for years.  
    • Just jumping into this one, someone's decided to try get into my 34 by bending that top door window trim back.  Anyone know how to remove these? Going to try and bend it back properly and sikaflex it... Cheers
