Hi Guys,
Do you need the Turbo Wiring Loom to do the conversion or can you stick with the n/a loom? Also would an 87 model calais be series 1 or series 2? After June is series 2 and before june is series 1?

cheers

There is no series 2 by date, just random changes. If your wondering about the motor, look at the passengers side of it and see if the block has the spots for the oil and water lines already there.

Wiring loom i'll leave for someone else. Knock sensor would at least be missing from the NA, but lots say it doesn't matter.

sorry for thread bump but i had this pic from my 30det build which i thought might be useful as i saw few ppl asking about series 1 and series 2 engines.

these are the oil and water lines on a series 2 rb30:


also last i checked im pretty sure all 89+ Vls were series 2 and some 87's. also all r31's have series 2 rb30s

correct me if im wrong witch i have a feeling i am but to do a dodgy conversion couldnt u get away with just manifold turbo cross over ? .. as long as u dont run above 6psi it would work wouldnt it?

also when you have the dump on the turbo will it line up to where the cat is on a NA?

dump and front pipe will line up with the cat on an N/A, they are the same.. You can run the cross over pipe, but you will still need turbo injectors and ECU to prevent pinging and internal damage to engine.

Yes! otherwise why would Nissan produce them with more fuel? PLUS N/A motors have more compression than the turbo motors, even more reason to need more fuel!

Has anyone found a trusty head gasket size for this conversion? To drop comp a bit?? Looking at doing this in the next month But with a canary yellow with black bars and trims. Has anyone ever strengthend the MF5 with a completely rebuilt box? Really want to avoid getting a 33 box or having to do the MX conversion. Have the box thats going into it apart for a complete rebuild..

thanks mate, so there you go guys who want to turbo their series 1 n/a engine you get water feed from the above pic, water return from the heater hose, oil feed from oil pressure sensor location and oil drain you have to drill on the side of the sump.

Can get AXT turbo to drill and tap for you in Dandenong for $160 includes a larger hose drill and tap. Other mechanics quoted me $600, $700 and $800...lol

Good luck hope this can help fellow s1 n/a vl owners.

special thanks to WOGPSI for all his help and Wkd VL.

cheers

RANT START...
Those addresses know who they are.
LOL so many dodgy questions. What can I skimp on bla bla bla. Read a Book people find out what detonation/ Pre-ignition and pinking is. Get off your lazy assez and do some home work. If you can't even read the thread you posting in then keep your 'been asked a thousand times' questions to your selfs.

Also there are a lot of good guys and girls on this forum that do there best to answer your questions and address any issues u may have
Have some RESPECT and read what they post b4 you asking any questions

Pisz me off. Nothing's easy in this life, if u want it work for it then maybe some one will ask you for advice

Rant end...

^^^^totally agree.
This is my first post ever on this site but been reading every thread I can find on na to turbo conversions and it's so frustrating when so many people are too lazy to do some reading and just think people have nothing better to do than type the same answers over and over.
So many people on this forum have such a wealth of knowledge and if all these dumb rrses keep posting rubbish the people with the knowledge won't bother helping out.

Thats my reply rant...

Anyway, Ive just bought a complete turbo motor, everything from fmic to flywheel including ecu, harness and injectors, only need a fuel pump and high pressure fuel line and my pootrol should go a little better. Anyone interested in my conversion I'll prob start a thread on the build.

certainly not a dose pipe, well not until I'm at 250-280RWKw then I'll be able to justify making a fully sik turbo noise.
My Patrol is no sleeper, it's got 7" spring lift, 2" body lift, 36" Simex ET2's and about 1kW of spot lights. I don't think I'll go with the badges, more likely a full body wrap with crazy shizzle all over it. Just cause I can!!!!

Leagal Conversion

Just wondering is it legal to change from an RB30 A6 motor and drop in an A8 RB30et? Have upgraded the brakes and suspension to suit already. Any info would be a big help. Thanks guys
