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.

    • Hey I have a spare CAS unit if you wanted to borrow or buy
    • All issues mentioned are mitigated by running billet gears and a long nose crank. My question pertains more to the oil pump housing differences. I already have an RB25 pump housing I wanted to put billet pump gears in. I was wondering if there's any advantage if I purchase an N1 pump instead and put billet gears into that. Even stranger is I found a link (One in OP) that states the RB25 pump housing is actually preferable which I'm wondering why.   Thanks
    • In the middle of the rb25 upgrade on the rb20. Its actually a Arashi bolt on. Its in and lined up perfect First question is can I use a standard hose as my oil return line? New turbo fitting is shorter and having to  change the line/hose The oil supply/intake hose has a smaller hole than stock. Not sure I should go back with the old one   Any other tips would be appreciated   
    • So just to update: I changed the brushes over and polished the commutator using a 1500 grit sanding sponge; it was super easy to polish being copper. A power tool wasn't necessary, although could have made it easier if you have the finesse to use it well.     Yet this was to no avail, the motor worked as it did before, stop, start, stop start, etc. Today I went to my mechanic's shop to do a few things. I showed him the motor and asked in broken Japanese "who can fix this?", he took it from me and had a crack, was able to fix it-ish. From what I could understand (which is very little), the problem with the motor was with the clutch disc located amongst the gears, I saw it whilst he was working but couldn't identify any issues. I say he fixed it-ish, because now the motor will run continuously when free from the rack, which is great. But once I had reinstalled it, the tilt function would work but the sliding function sounded off, like the motor was under more load than before and the motor was struggling. We're going to pull apart the rack in the new year and see what we can find.  Hopefully this is of some help to others that get sunroof motor issues with their R34, S15 Silvia, or highly unlikely the Z10 cube. I will update this when more progress is made.
    • AFAIK in the RB26 section of the service manual it explicitly says not to take apart the AAC valve. If you took it apart once there's no harm in taking it apart again to see if you can save it.
