Thanks guys! Really appreciate it.

Small update for everyone. I sold the whole kit and hoping it will be installed in a few weeks to have another try on a good dyno tune on a healthy engine.

My new used engine is still sitting, waiting for the upper oil pan to be replaced then either part out the car or find another pair of turbos.

My financials don't look too good at the moment and honestly the car payment hurts when the car isn't moving. I'll be selling a few unnecessary parts to try and have it boosted again so be on the lookout for that

I'm selling my 19 row oil cooler and Z1 urethane motor mounts at the moments, a few more parts later on.

If anybody finds a pair of GT-R Turbos for cheap, let me know!


A few pics of the engine




Looks crazy doesn't it.

Yep, there's 2 more holes on the underside of the pan

Pictures of the used engine I got. I'm going to powdercoat the timing cover since I'm there already plus polish a few things.



Any other recommendations?

WOW, I'm from sunny AZ I guess I'm pretty spoiled here. Not use to seeing all the corrosion on the aluminum. No snow so no salt and sand to combat it and ruin the finish.

For some stupid reason. Nissan doesn't put a protection finish on the bare aluminum.

Yeah it's very unfortunate. My blown engine looks brand new in comparison
I might polish it a little before I put it back in but I haven't been a person who cares about aesthetic so far

All they would have to do is spray the motor with a clear coat after they built the it.

Default GT-R turbos on the VQ37

Small update before the New Year

I was lucky enough to find a pair of turbos with only 5k miles for just under $800 along with all the oil/coolant lines and heatshields.
Also received my adapters from the shop in a reasonable timeframe this time (old set sold with the turbos and intercooler)

Going to try and figure out if a 2.5" inlet for the turbo is possible (maybe increase top end?) and also figure out an easier way to route the oil return lines. (Hard lines hopefully)



I think I might see some of you guys this Zdays!

Unfortunately not. I have ordered that type but a 2" one as that's what the inlet at the turbo is (52mm)
I will update you as soon as I received them.

Thank you so much! I hope that this car stays with me for a very long time.


I just received those inlet flanges and they fit perfectly! I'm thinking of just using silicone couplers from that point and then expanding to 2.5" near the filter.

Here's a couple nice pictures for you guys since a few people complained about my bad pictures

Order a set of 2.5" inlets (compared to 2" stock) so hopefully this will make the turbo a little more efficient. I'm hoping to join a tuning group(Seb) in IL around April but my goal is to have the car running mid March with everything functional (can't figure out the e85 flex fuel yet)



Another little project I'm working on
