Re: Wanted -- Garrett Turbo or Hitachi replacement

you can get the gt2052 with BB as apposed to journal, but it still isnt the right turbo for the R50 as the outlet from the compressor housing is wrong, the one you want is a T28 from a S14 or S15 silvia in saying that the T28 has been superseded by the T25R which has twin BB's as apposed to single B...

Mistral is a td27 only, the pre96 models run a Hitachi wet float bearing and are more prone to failure and don't like being pushed past 14psi as the exhaust wheel has a habit of snapping off. The turbo charger you want is from a qd32 Nissan terrano or black top eti mistral post 97 as these are a gar...

Re: Low stall torque converters

the problem with auto's (and nissan's jatco transmissions are probably the worst for this) is they are designed to change gears smoothly, in order to do this they dump line pressure during the gear shift to give that silky smooth feel, the unfortunate side effect to this is more slippage of the clut...
