    Jesus, that's brand new. Has it still got the factory tyres on it? ^^

    Motor should take 6 pounds without any hastles. (that's about 0.5 bar.) And if you're putting it all together yourself, just remember to get the chip+tune done properly before you drive it anywhere.

    A turbo VN should go like stink. If you've got the money, then go for it. You're one lucky bastard.

    (Then you can get a noisy BOV, a boost gauge the size of a small dinner plate, five "Nismo" decals, and show all those ricers how it's meant to be done!) :D

    You don't need a turbo to show the ricers a thing or two...even in stock form the VN is potent enough to scare crap out of most of them.

    This might give you a rough idea of how much the setup would cost. These stage 3 turbo kits for vl-vs go for 4g's. If you sourced all parts yourself would only set you back around $1500-2000. Your car is a rare one at that to have a mere 90k. Look after it. It will go hard with turbs...:driving:

    well im glad I found this page,
    im in the process of banging on two m10 garrett turbos to my 89 vn, it has a few home mods at the moment, if somebody could let me know why it wont let me up load pic's that would be great,
    i told my machanic about what i had done to it and what distance it takes to get from 0-100klmph, he 'told' me my speedo was out coz i had 16's on(but only on the front). or the distance measured out was wrong, longa the short he came for a 'test' drive and he to had a smile on his face...

    no probs, at moment changing g'box lost 3rd up :ranting: do rear main at same time, when back and running ill be able to go to hidden valley and get a 400m time should have a scary 60ft time as it takes 130ishm doing a standing
    0 to 100kmph I dont know what the std dose? stil in the 7.??sec range.:D
    and at that time I only had 1st 2nd and rev, couldnt do a 400m blat :(

    im in the process of puttng in a DFA from jaycar DIGITAL FUEL ADJUSTER in, im trying to get as much out of her before I go away from std internals. i recon that anybody can just go out there and spend up big and get a reaal coool monster....well i like to try and get 100% out of what i have first then go get more goodies:yeah:

    for the rest of her 'to come bits' fit rockers, 2.6l astron 4cyl injectors(30% more fuel flow/per/min) xtractors, and thats about it on this car-vn as she is my every day driver, :w00t:

    the other vn im playing with is going to again be a back yard job with
    x2 m10 garrett turbo's home made intake man,
    ofcourse custom exhaust man having x2 turbos,
    the jaycar DFA,
    bigga injectors,
    fit 1.9:1,
    cig locka diff,
    and what ever else pops into my head along the way...

    I think this is going to be an unreal driftin car and as they let us on the v8 supercar track i should realllllly be able to cut loose on good ground:thumbsup: :D
