Recommended Posts

Hey does anyone know of one of these conversions done and if it required an engineers certificate.

Also what are the tiptronic boxes like on these i was thinking of doing one of them instead of the manual

you have to upgrade the brakes for a non turbo engine?

It has more power than the stock RB30E or whatever is in it, even if you don't have to, it's probably smart to do it.

I know you have to do it for the turbo, but I'm not sure if its compulsory for the NA, I just assume it is.

I've put slotted rotors and ebc pads in the stockies, guess i'll have to suck it and see

awsome choice of brakes, i will invest when i can afford, just make sure you bleed the line and put in some high temp fluid, you probly allready know but my mate upgraded and hyrolocked cause the fluid boiled and crashed now he knows to compression lock :S

yeah got motul brake fluid in them, you're right bout the pads though i can stand on the things going into corners. Actually took abit of getting used to braking so late into a corner when pushing it.

My mate just got his car engineered after putting a forged 4g63 into his lancer sedan... so now its like a GSR mock up.

He didnt upgrade his brakes, and it still passed engineering easy... his car had gone from like 80kw NA engine to like 180kw turbocharged engine...

So its really 'if' you feel like doing it... you dont HAVE to do it like some people say if your only increasing its power by a little bit.

When the rb20det goes in mine, brakes wont be upgraded, because its not needed.

your in SA

you have the idiots at regency to deal with

they don't care about engineers certificates, they consider themselves the foremost experts in the ADR's.

go speak to them to ask if THEY will approve it

Tell me about it, trying to avoid going there.

I spoke to a cop on the phone today and he told me to just go for it and drive the thing. Just go to the rego office and change the engine number over.

you shouldnt even need an engineers certificate... the engine is smaller than the original. its also cleaner and quieter... just get a blue slip done to have the engine number changed.

too easy, good choice of engine!

cheers
