yeah it has been done before into a vn sedan,problem with the rb20 is that its a 2L and wouldn't have as much torque as say the 2.5L rb25 so hence would be a better conversion keeping in mind the v6 is a 3.8 L nearly twice as big as the rb20.....still would be a cool conversion though

Shame that the RB30, is older then the VP.

That would be ideal.

You should be able to get a rb30 into the VN right through to VS legally as they came in the Series 3 skyline that ran the same emissions adr

theres someone on the forums with a VN calais turbo, with A RB30 conversion, dont think its done yet but looks good

still, why not just buy a VL turbo and go crazy??? i suppose if u wanna be diffrent, rb20 would be a plain waste of time, and same with rb25, use the RB30 as they'res about 4,000,000,000 of the motors sitting at wreckers
