Twin Rb26 Steel Wheel Turbos On A Rb25

Recommended Posts

wasnt going to bother changing turbos on my RB25DET but a mate of mine is going to a single turbo and has a twin Turbo setup from his RB26DETT which have also had steel wheels installed which he says is N1 spec turbos but i dont know for usre what he means good for over 300rwkw was mentioned aswell dunno how true that is either as he only had a few other slight mods like Fuel pump front mount and moded ECU.

now i thought it would be crazy but what if i was to fit these to my RB25DET would they be laggy would it be a decent upgrade i know exhaust and manifold will need to either be fabed or moded but i got mtes who could probley help me out what you guys think.

im looking at it as a turbo upgrade would be over $2000 with all fittings so i can basically get the turbos for nothing aslong as i use them and they have 3 inch pipes off them aswell only problem i can see is my AFM which i will need to get rid of so aftermarket ECU but going Aftermarket turbo i will require this anyways.

is it worth the effort?

Waste of time, especially if they are R32/R33 N1 turbos - utter rubbish they are.

People have tried before, and ended up regretting it. Have a search, you'll find the threads and then get to the end and say "I wouldn't do it again" :)

    • >complete amateur >1:24 at Winton laggy massive HP RWD R32 I dunno about the first part I would argue this use case probably doesn't need VCT, won't be in the rev range that it would ever be active!
    • Last weekend I changed out the noisy bearing in the rear. It went fine except the axle was super stuck in the hub. I eventually got it all swapped out over two days. The car is so much quieter but the ABS light came on. I freaked out thinking I'd put the bearing in backwards or used one without the integrated magnet for the speed sensor (lower E90's use a ring attached to the axle rather than built into the bearing). I checked the 2nd bearing I got, seems I got it right (black side in first). I bought a new Bosch speed sensor from eBay which arrived today, 10 mins to fit and cleared codes. No more ABS light.  My gut says I probably damaged it when pressing the bearings in and out as it kinda hangs in a bad spot - i should have removed it. Anyway, whatever, its quiet and fixed. I think the front bearings are ready for changing now, I can hear very slight noise that would have been masked by the dead rear one. Front ones are bolt in thankfully. Also bought the Nolathane rear subframe bushes and a Whiteline 16mm rear sway bar (OE is 13mm). I had this bar on my 330i but cbf'd removing it so just got another. The subframe needs to be lowered to fit the bar so i'll do bushes and bar at the same time. I was really temped to get solid aluminium bushes but they are really expensive and the whole subframe has to come out, not just be dropped which is not something I'm keen to do. 
    • who'd have thought and  some compression 🤔
    • Nice car! Looks like a good base for "restomod"ification. 👍 My first (and to date only 😔) Skyline was an HCR32 2-door so a big fan of these.
