C34 Turbo Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Cost with that turbo will blow out massively

Ext waste gate

High mount manifold

New dump to suit

New intake to suit

Custom water/oil lines

Get hypergear to highflow your turbo and tell him what your aiming for performance wise

Pretty sure he can get a neo op6 turbo up to about 260awkw

YEah I got a quote for about $960.... with that price, i thought it may be better to just buy a new turbo??

Turbo upgrades always means more money. A hiflow is a pretty sensible way to go to keep costs down but it is always going to cost more than you think.

Hiflow turbo, injectors, AFM, Nistune + tune. (assuming FMIC and 3" exhaust already done).

how big depends on if you think you will go e85 in the future

personally, i'd get the highflow/ss1 and the fuel pump and rock what your tuner feels safe on stock afm and injectors

if you go big injectors you will max out the afm too

Ok sounds like a plan. Don't think I'll be going on e85 anytime soon.. Haven't even seen it in petrol stations yet!!

I remember the tuner last time saying the next steps were "high flow turbo back exhaust, bigger turbo, injectors".... so maybe i'll leave injectors off the list for now and get them to tune and see what they think..

Also, worth getting a BOV while i'm at it?? They seem wanky, but have some benefits I read

Leave the stock BOV. There is no performance to be gained buying a new one.

If you want to get the most out of the turbo upgrade buy the injectors and the Z32 AFM. You will pay for tuning twice when you eventually upgrade them.

If you are sticking with stock injectors and afm just run the stock turbo to 12psi with a good tune and it will do the job perfectly well and make around 200rwkw +/- 10kw.

Well to be honest, I have the NISTUNE with stock everything and 12psi boost... Only making 175kw :(

3" dump and a 5" bodied cat (Venom??) and re-tune should be 200rwkw give or take.

Yeah they were both on my shopping list... I'll do those first then and see how she goes... :)

Not sure whether I'll have clearance for the 5" cat, may have to go 4"....
