Default forced induction in australia

Hi all,
maybe a stupid question but was just wondering..
it looks like in the USA they are realeasing a few twin turbo/supercharger setups in the coming months,
my question is would the american kits fit on the aussie models as they are LHD and we are RHD

It would only be the steering collumn that is different, so as long at that doesn't get in the way physically, then it'll be fine.

i decided to shoot revzone an email to find out more, apart from finding out they will need to modify the kit to suit RHD they have also advised me of pricing if anyone is interested.

Price of GTM turbo kit in the state 8-9k USD, 10% import duty, 10% gst, $1350 delivery (australian air express)
Labour to install kit, modify to suit RHD, setup ECU , dyno tuning .
We estimate around $4500 to 5000
Price of stage 1 upgrade


They have also advised me they will be stocking the Greddy twin turbo kit once that is available,
but the most exciting news i have found out is that they will be developing their own turbo kit for the car but they've advised me still a fair few months away

They will be doing their first 370z (GTM turbo kit) in a couple of weeks, in which they will be sending me some photos and dyno figures.

The guy down there seems very helpful

Yeah Justin? he's a very helpful bloke... knows what he's talking about too. It's always best to assume that a tt kit will cost about 15-20k AUD installed it was pretty much the same on the 350z too. (16k i think) it's a hell of a lot of money... but damn!!!

^ I doubt it, also would be cheaper to buy direct from the states and send it over.

Don't think you can even get Greedy kit with a rhd option anymore.
I would speak to a local fabrication shop you can trust and get a custom one made. Or, order the Boosted Perfomance 1.5 kit and have it modified by someone slightly (hopefully) to clear the steering knuckle

Starting with a BP kit is not a small modification. You'd be better off paying a custom shop to fabricate a copy just completely mirrored.

Pretty much a full kit as far as piping (hot and cold) goes. You'd be able to use the intake piping from IC to TBs. Everything else would need to be completely opposite so you would need a new manifold, hotside piping from turbo to exhaust flange (including WG and recirc piping) and new charge piping from turbo to IC. The rest of the kit (Exa pump, fuel pump, injectors, etc.) would work but it's just parts and you could order from anywhere.

Short story long you'd have to redesign 90% of what Sasha did to create his kit.

what do you think of this then?. over the greddy kit. the turbos are smaller as well.. So you thinking its not even worth getting a greddy kit because of the 90% change.
