The kit will be as modular as possible with the other bolt on parts we are making. What ever additional is needed to complete the install would be including in the kit.

No fuel solution yet but we have some pretty good ideas on how we can get more fuel to the car for bigger boost and more HP. we will keep you posted.

We will have to test. We have some pretty trick stuff here. personally I think a GT3076R with a .78 A/R Vband housing would rock on this car. That and a GT35R or GT850 with similar sized housing would just kick ass on this engine. 3 liters moves a lot of exhaust gas to spin a turbo. you guys are going to be surprised how fast it can spin a decent sized turbo.

A GT35R would be incredible on this car. I have had a similar setup and it pulls hard and it pulls fast!

just curious, I feel like the RR OCC is perfect... so what would you change/upgrade about it? I guess 1 thing I could think of would be some sort of easier way to remove it to dump the oil, not that 2 phillips screws is that bad but they aren't that easy to get to. Plus you gotta remove the clamps I guess. Haven't actually emptied mine yet...

ya, very true... guess I just don't want them to "waste time" making another version of stuff that is already "perfected" you know? Let's move on to NEW items and hit up the same old same old stuff later.

all this talk about big turbo's is great and all, but our beloved N54 is no 2JZ! I hope most of you guys who plan on doing the turbo upgrade have the funds available for a built motor and drivetrain because your going to need it...possibly even on pump gas power levels (approx. 450-500whp). That being said, if I keep this car I'm on board for the big turbo kit and beyond

Eric,

Will there ever be an option to have an m3-style exhaust, quads that exit close to the center of the bumper?

You info is based on? The manual tranny will hold the power/torque I think without problem. We know the ZF ratings and it seems this will be fine. In fact, I have yet to see one single tranny blown even at the 400 rwhp/425 rwtq cars. With an upgraded FP, we may very well have internals to handle the power. I am not trying to sound harsh, but unless you state facts then your assumptions are not worth much.

hahaha sorry guys I have been in Vegas for the past 12 days exhibiting for our company at the SEMA show. While we were gone we have the fabrication department a bunch of homework and they were busy guys looking into what can be made for the N54 and how. The first step is making a couple different exhaust systems to see what works the best.

An oil catch can is not out of the question at all. We have to look to see what is out there now and how functional it is.
