    Dry sump. One off.

    I know They've done head work. The primaries are far larger than the ports.

    The best thing to do is purchase engine, harness and ecu and head to the engine Dyno.

    How about the Nissan GTR engine? Tried and tested to over 600bhp in stock form. LOADS of tuning options out there and the shnace to increase motor displacmenent to 4.0ltr + relatively easily....

    Just a thought!

    Stock baby turbos are great for a test drive around a dealership at 35 mph. Instant kick. Car salesman does not need top end power pass 5K to sell a car. They know what they doing.

You can see how fast torque falls off after 5K. A real turbo might wake up this beast. The wiki says it is GDI and comes with variable cams. You are going to need a real EMS to handle this baby.

    Yeah, the stock turbos on the truck version are only T15's. Lots of potential left on the table.
