Xr6 Turbo Love


Recommended Posts

Very apples and oranges, from an ex-F6 and gts4 owner. The XR turbo are ready to roll....(carry the family on long trips), boost etc, but despite good suspension make them boat like (due to the good but heavy sedan body). An r32 is a relic, one that you conquered (great combo using a responsive neo) but for a passionate driver, but the small nimble and agile r32, in need of the fettling and patience a now old car requires.....has rewards separate to a boat. You once posted about the joy of the hills, and Rolls you now post about boats, perhaps you will live up to your avatar name and a Rolls will be your next post such as a turbo Bentley.

Bungee jumping has better ground rush. Skydiving has better fun/$ and longer thrill factor.

I once drove the JMS S12 Silvia (Gazelle). 650HP FJ20. Used to lift the front left wheel 450mm up into the air - on the street. That was scary. A turbo 13B S1 RX7 was a similar sort of ride and equally scary. A 1000HP HKS engined Supra I drove didn't have the chassis flex of those two, but simply leaped into the future whilst leaving large portions of the tyres behind. That was the most scary.

lol 650hp... good ol allen engineerings guessimate engine dyno ...it made 250rwkw ...and that was on a good day...so maybe 450hp at the crank

cheers

Maybe so. The number I was told back then was 650. I had vague memories of seeing it do well over 300rwkW on a chassis dyno, but as usual there was no way to know what settings were in use or where they were hiding the air temp sensor! It was still a scary thing to drive. Bloody loose.

Yeh was fast for the day!

I saw it make 240-250rwkw on many dynoes

tilbrooks always read the highest back then..

That turbo woudnt flow anywhere near 300rwkw

Was a dirty old t04e on it

From memory it made maybe low 500s something on allens engine dyno

cheers

300 kilos is a lot 2 deal with when you're trying to carry corner speed skinny back tires lots of talk and too much power means your traction control is constantly cutting power or if you turn it off you will spin the tires and go slow, while we spin the tires and overtake you. Is only so much power a 245 tyre will take plus it's ugly as f**k but congratulations on the purchase

I havent really read the whole thread but with the Barras, once you go over 260rwkw you should look at upgrading the valve springs at a minimum.

Only on the BAs and Mk1 BFs, the rest all have upgraded valve springs from the factory that won't float until you get to 400rwkw

Well then it is lucky you can fit 18x305 in the stock guard with only rolling it, I have 265s which hook up in first with over 300rwkw. Never turn traction control on unless it is wet and I don't have any issues.

305 on the rear?

that won't stop your front end from running wide. do they fit on the front too?

More like the later BF models through to FG models got the F6 engine.

Still the valve springs are fit and miss.....even FG owners are upgrading springs to go over 300Kw.

I've found a 245f and 265r to give neutral handling, you can get a 265 on the front but you end up with the rims out the guard and it looks pretty silly.

    • Why are you still trying to buy a crappy jap brand exhaust? go to your local exhaust shop and get a heaps better one made that will fit under the body 100x better
    • I’m very happy with my recent purchase of the Fuga but resisting the conversion to English of the navigation system. I’ve used Google translator to get around the system to date but I must have pressed something, now wondering if any Fuga owners (mine is 2011) know how to get out of this ‘dual’ or ‘panel’ screen mode. It’s driving me crazy 
    • hello! i am looking into upgrading the cams on my rb26 in the future, and wanted to start to understand what goes into this. i did a forum search and nothing obvious came up, so forgive me if this is already discussed somewhere. currently the engine is stock, save for (pertinent to this discussion): adjustable cam pulleys beefed up timing belt haltec ecu, not yet installed yet oil baffle plates i am will be converting to a single turbo set up, and that turbo's peak output is reached at somewhere between 5k and 5.5k rpm. this would be for street use. from what i understand, i should be looking at cams degreed at 272°. does that sound like it makes sense? there are step 1 and step 2 variants of these cams. i am not sure what the difference is in the to variants, so if anyone can chime in on this it would be great. i am assuming i would need to upgrade my valve springs as well. other than a tune, what would go into a camshaft upgrade? if i want to go with a v-cam upgrade much later, how does that affect i am doing now? i understand that it's totally possible that i completely missed something major here, but that's why i am posting this: i am here to learn. cheers!
    • I don't know whether you've made a decision yet or not. But left to me, I'll choose RAV4 over skyline everytime. Apart from the fact that RAV4 is a new product, skyline is an old product that it's almost out of vogue. It has some issues and require high maintenance. 
    • Ill see how this adaptor goes first. But thanks for the offer.
