so i should just buy the turbo bottom and i should be right i dont need the head? the turbo can be fitted onto the NA head

its just i would ask mechanics but they are all closed over xmas break.

hate to jump on the bandwagon - but considering there is only about 3-5k difference on a turbo, and non-turbo r33, just sell the car..buy turbo version. It will cost more than $3-5k to convert it, and nobody will want to buy it afterwards.

Your car can be "converted" in a couple of short weeks!

his right its like changing a bettle into a porsche, its still a bettle, when you would rather have the porsche

alot comes with it engine changes i was going to do this to my old r31, but i looked up prices think about it



lots of custom work


boost controllers (if you want more power and ya do)

my mate bought my old r31 including buying it and changing everything over cost him 15-16k took him a year to get the car running right then he rolled it lost 16k outrught was never insured

the money i got from old car i pick up an r33 gts-t for 17k and i was driving it two weeks after i sold my old car and the old r31 could never handle like an r33

what im saying is buy something that is built to do what u want, its cheaper and usually more reliable

    • I've got a Nexus for one of my other cars and I was surprised how simple it is to use and seems like a good quality bit of gear. The tech support guys are good to chat with too.
    • My point is more so focused on the division between cylinders 1 to 3 vs 4 to 6. Any low mount "bolt on" aftermarket manifold utilises an open T3 collector which has crap all scavenging effects. Sure it might allow you to slap in more timing up top to make a little more but you'll lose all the down low performance. Even Tao from @hyper-gear has experienced the same when modifying the stock manifold. He has experienced added lag by cutting out the divider inside vs. leaving it alone. Twin scroll works, even if the effort is focused primarily on the manifold and an open scroll turbine housing. Please don't confuse me with a V8 NA or Americans that thinks you need back pressure in a 4 stroke motor.
    • I bought mine from Concept Z https://conceptzperformance.com/hks-stainless-steel-catback-exhaust-system-full-dual-muffler-infiniti-q60-coupe-17-cv37-awd-rwd-31014-kn001_p_32626.php Put it on myself. Very easy jack stands. But if i was going to do it again i would get something like this   https://conceptzperformance.com/nissan-infiniti-infiniti-sport-exhaust-kit-axle-back-exhaust-system-infiniti-q60-17-coupe-cv37-b0100-q60st_p_30289.php Or just straight pipe it the whole way. I drove the car without an exhaust for shits and giggle when i was swapping it and it's not very loud at all. 
    • Ignore the monster truck ride hide, I messed up on the offsets and widths and ended up ditching them a few weeks later when my coilovers didnt fit
    • I always drive with the tire pressure gauges showing the PSI because I'm paranoid about getting a flat tire and not knowing then keep driving and tear it apart. No amount of goo is going to fix a shredded tire. My Q60 has the goo and the V36 had the goo too. Never used it but I have used the pump to pump up the tire to get home. Then I fixed it with a plug. Wasn't keen on the goo.
