Stock R33, Turbotech Boost???

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I've got a bogstock r33 S1. No FMIC, no xhaust, no pod......Stock as factory....rare huh?

I've been reading the forums and did a few searches on the subject so its not just an off the cuff question, thought has gone in to this.

Anywayz i want to purchase one of these turbotech boost controllers and up the boost to 10psi. I'm under the impression that the ECU will adapt to this so long as i don't go over 10psi. Correct me if i'm wrong there. No carbon build up / det. etc.???

Will there be any damage to anything under the hood if i install this and up the boost?

Will this provide a noticably bigger difference in spool up, e.g. would it be on boost almost straight away?

Will 10psi make a huge difference, i.e. put my head back in the seat when i nail it?

No problem running 10PSI but, most likely, you'll need to regap your spark plugs down to 0.8mm.  Would also be nice to do an ECU reset.

Ummm sorry, pretty new to mechanical work.....What does that mean?? does that mean get new spark plugs and get my ecu tuned?? Doesn't that cost like up to a grand?? No complaining just asking.

Your profile says RB20E........I don't think it will make any difference which boost controller or "how much" you wind up the boost....you aren't going to notice ANY difference :rolleyes:

Seriously though......regapping the plugs is simply a matter of removing the plugs and regapping the electrodes to .8mm

ECU reset can be done by either shorting 2 of the terminals on the consult port (do a search) or by removing the battery and draining any remaining charge in the car by pumping the brake pedal, then replace the battery and the ECU should be reset. I prefer the consult port method personally.

Okie Dokie

So get someone with one of those spacer pocket knife lookin things and get the spark plugs regapped. Then reset the ecu and all should run fine.

Can i safely up the boost to 12psi then, seeing as that's the limit for the stock turbo?

As for the other questions am i really going to notice it??


P.S. Tried to change the RB20E thing but can't find where its located on my profile. I actually have a 1200kw twin turbo rb26dett in the shed but the stock r33's faster :rolleyes:

    • 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.
