    About time someone truboed the RE. I'm sick of hearing people say "Oh yeah, i think i will just put an SR in and be done with it. I don't know if the stock engine can handle it."

    Good work man. How does it drive? Any shots of it a a whole?

    I really liked the 18rg i had previously and im a fan or the R series engine, there great. I like Nissan, but an sr is not how i want this build to be.

    It is running 7psi, straight wastegate, no boost controller, all i have done is upped the fuel pressure and a new fuel pump. It flys, 10 times better then before! Its still no complete missile but it is very suprising, the engine has 316000km on it, does not use oil or water and i boost it everywhere. Old Toyota's....need i say more? haha

    I'll get full shots when i get my camera off my brother!

    Thanks Wagon86, at first was dodgy and just clamped return line to get it running quick, but now have a Adjustable FPR with a little gauge on it, i found it needed alot more fuel, until i had enough fuel it would backfire through the airbox and run poorly.
    Keen to see some pics of your setup. Do you find the CT20 is to big or small for it? This is similar sized turbo to a T25?

    Oh yeah . I've got a malsappi rising rate fuel pressure thin from a previous project .might work. Umm I'd say that the t25 would be better. The ct20 is just a little to all. Spools quick but dies high revs. Probs gonna make an adapter plate to fit a t28.
