Yeah the oil return connection you get from enzed, you take that piece out, and you take the hose in, and you say I want a barb fitting with this thread and that size hose fitting.

All pumped by the engine, I wouldn't worry about setting up cans.. Just use whats there

The one at the very bottom of the engine bay with the big nipple isnt on my car, its got the screw on my r31, but the r32 has the screw and the nipple + the nut, i cant take it out to put on the r31, ive been trying all day yesterday the god damn thing doesnt want to come out

Also what did you guys use for the water return pipe around the back of the block ? i need to T-piece into that, but the water retun hoses are huge and the hose from the turbo into that is small, i checked all super cheaps and odins in my area and none of them had a 3-piece setting with 2 big nipples and 1 small one, so, what would you reccomend?

basic turbo conversions cost $1000 in parts, or 2 grand if taken to a backyarder to fit it.

complete factory turbo engine with bolt ons will usualy set you back $3000
obviously no box no diff.

i have loads of banjo bolts. don't ask how where or why. (yes they are legal) $10 each

2k for a bolt on conversion?

ive spent no more then 400$ so far on parts, take 100$ out of that for a new set of tools as well, so around 300$ all up.

when you start talking about "diffs, cams, pistons" etc, its no longer bolt on conversion

Any way, does anyone know what the bottom bolt on the r31 is called with the nipple? is that the banjo bolt?

if so ill jsut go and buy one from odins or something as i dont want to buy from someone over east and wait 3 - 6 days for it to arrive as i need this done bassically by the end of the week lol.

edit : holy crap, im never going to odin auto parts ever again, that place is ***ing rediculous. Nothing more to say lol.

I have more questions, SORRY!!!

Picture 1 -

Can hose A be t-pieced with the hose that would come of nipple B. If not, can i just block nipple B off as my vl turbo cross over pipe doesnt have a hole or anything to plug nipple B into, But my stock cross over pipe does.

Im assuming pipe C from picture 1 goes onto nipple C from picture 2 on the VLT cross over pipe.

Picture 2 -

Where do pipes B, A, D and E go on picture 2 ?

And can i simply remov pipe F, or does it need to be routed somewhere onto the intake manifold? If so, where on the intake manifold can it be placed, as on the VLT engine there is a spot for it but on my N/A engine there doesnt seem to be.

Sorry for asking so much about this, But i dont want to be driving along and when i hit boost i cant use my brakes or something like that. Also, I like nipples.

Picture 1



Picture 2

Do the conversion yourself, everything is a straight bolt on if you have the series 2 block.

Hey guys
I have a VLT but did the bottom end and the head is no good..
..but appart from that i have all the other parts for conversion and obviously a factory vl turbo with the right brakes diff ect ..

So my question is cheapest way to get my car back on the road i was thinking is to get a rebuilt wiked condition rb30e and convert it myself??
..because i already have vlt fuel pump and all the other bull**** that you NA guys are missing will my conversion hold more boost and more importantly will the engine hold the turbo conversion??

How long will it last, what are its weak points ect ..
your advice much appriciated

Daniel

hi guys, Just wondering how much do you think the bottom end of a N/A motor could handle once its already got the right fuel pump, reg, injectors etc..and just a decom plate, 14 - 15 psi? more.. less?

basically whats the most power u can make out of a N/A bottom end with just a decom plate and for it to still be reliable :P

I don't think it will hold more boost as such, but it will hold it - are you going to be running an intercooler setup?

As for what power can you make out of the high comp turbo conversion, I'd be looking at r31 skyline forums in all honesty, ask them. As these guys have pushed the limits of high comp turbo conversions more then what the vl guys have done so far. I'm fairly sure I've seen some very high figures, 200+

Quick q's for those who've been here done that. Is the wiring harness interchangable between the turbo and NA? I know the turbo's got the detonation sensor, but that's the only difference right?

I think my harness is rooted (quite a few suspect lookin wires along the way) and have a good condition NA one that I want to swap in to eliminate it as a source of the probs.

i'm going to be goin along this path in a few months time. gonna get the turbo parts and then find me a decent looking N/A VL. i wanna try and do a budget yet reliable build. my aim is about $1500-2000 incl. car purchase should be interesting. the only thing holdiing me back at the moment is that i am renting while my house gets built, but once its all done i'll be starting work.

It doesn't seem worth it for a meazly 36kw & no torque, they dont even move off the line. Not worth doing a stock turbo setup

Such a minor difference between series 1 and series 2 blocks, just get a drill
and tap the holes, maybe we need an article/wiki entry for that...

yes u can use n/a block
if its s2 it will already have the holes drilled in the block for oil/water lines and drain.
3 holes that will be plugged up on passenger side of the block if its s2, if its s1 they wont be there simple...
its been covered 500 times do a search ffs.
