Making 50% of max power by 4500, that's amazing.  Tempting me to switch from my 8474 to twin 6258s

Is anybody able to take measurements of the EFR9280 compressor, I'm seeing if I have enough clearance on my engine to run and test it compared to the 9180 which I have on me which fit fine on a 6boost T4 in a R33 GTR engine bay

I don't think it's that shocking on an RB30, it's good but it's not unheard of at all.   I think if you get the EFR8474 running on a good (/similar) RB30 setup you'd not be left feeling disappointed.

THAT! ^^^^ Not trying to take anything away from that result as it's no doubt a f**king fast car! BUT an 8474 or above will go toe to toe with that all day. Particularly down low /midrange power.

I'm gonna change my setup now. The PT6466 System is going for sale because I'm looking for a different driving style.

Will try the EFR 7670 with a 1.05 EWG and a 6 boost manifold with 2x40mm wastegates and im curious to see what it's gonna be. Aim is to come close to 550 engine horses on 100 octan.
Hope it brings some fresh wind :D

Question!

Who has used a TurboSmart replacement BOV that fits in the OEM position?  And if so has anyone actually noted a difference?

There appears to be a suggestion the factory one may leak - but I don't know if that's true or not.  I don't see how I can measure either - so the only way to find out is replace and see (which is an expensive experiment if it does nothing)

And Turbosmart appear to offer two variants:

Any feedback ?

You can test if the factory one is opening under boost by simply blocking it off with a coke can gasket. You're not looking for the differences anywhere except when making boost.

I had the dual port turbosmart bov on my 7163 to help with compressor surge on throttle lift off. No longer an issue with the 8374, so if you'd like a cheaper 2nd hand one let me know.

The other main difference is adjustable spring tension for the given vacuum of the engine.

In this case by factory/OEM I think that's referring to the standard EFR integrated BOV, not the Nissan one. I don't think you can block off the EFR one with a coke can.

I'm just about to get on the EFR train and get a 9280/1.45 for my RB34.

Any recommendations as to where the best place is to source one?

yep i have a 6 boost with single divided outlet, 8374 1.05 on a 2.6l rb26

50mm progate, 7psi spring a 4 port mac valve.

no creep above 10psi of boost. below this you are asking too much flow through the gate. the lowest boost run was with the boost solenoid unplugged from ecu.

great result, is max boost around 28psi? i have same turbo setup, except will be on 2.8 with vcam, looks like i need to step it up to 8474 at the very least

I would definately go a 8474. this turbo is at absolute full speed. on the 490kw trace you can see the boost drop at 7500rpm. that is the boost target dropping to stop it going over 128krpm.

this is the VE calculated airflow ive overlayed over the compressor map. nothing left.

    • 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.
