4AGE Turbo manifold and RB20 T28 Sun, 11 July 2004 13:01 Go to next message
Hello all,

Rex is thinking of selling his manifold and turbo combo. The only reason is simply because he has decided to try a different combination.

Consists of the following:

- Custom high mount 4AG turbo manifold.
- BB T28 from R32 Skyline GTSt (very good condition)
- Modified wastegate actuator for high mount and to clear CAS

Hasn't been used yet, but turbo has been thoroughly cleaned and lubed ready to run. The standard wastegate canister has been modifid to suit the rotated housings due to high mounting and to clear the CAS.

Manifold hasn't been surfaced but either buyer or Rex can sort that out for very little (< $40).

Pics on the morrow when Rex takes photo's. But looks quite serious when bonnet is lifted.

Looking for $800 or so. Can also fabricate dump pipe to suit if needed for additional $200

Any interest/queries, just eMail, PM or post here


Rex, Adelaide

EDIT: Updated price

Okay lads and lasses.

Would prefer not to seperate as its probably easier to sell as a 'kit' type job.

'Tis also RWD, however may fit FWD demending on clearance between head and radiator.

As promised here are some photo's.

Worry not about the shavings in the manifold or the wastegate not being connected. These will both be sorted out before postage. Welds have been ground down on the runners and will look swish with a coat of high-temp paint.

Note that both the collector and head flange have been extensively ported.

http://img78.photobucket.com/albums/v320/skirby/Re x/PortingSmall.jpg

Based on the advice of those close to Rex the price has been raised to $800, however if there is no interest/sale then the price will probably drop again Very Happy.

Rest assured the manifold was a bitch to make, and would set you back probably $900 alone fabricated by any shop.

I'm noting that this will porbably NOT fit on a FWD and probably is not reccomended for a 4AGE but rather a 4AGZE since the Turbo blocks the space where the 4AGE distributor cap would sit.

In this case a crank angle sensor might need to be fitted to do the ignition timing. This is going by the photos tho....

lets just say you would separate the turbo from the manifold... how much would you sell it for? i MAY be in the need for a BBT28 as mine is more or less trash now...
im looking to find a second hand turbo for 400-450 dollars IF i cant rebuild my existing turbo for cheaper....

True, it was designed for a 4AGZE, however if anyone has a 4AGE distributor Rex'd be more than glad to test fit it.

As for seperating it, Rex'll think about it Smile...

a bit of free advice for rex Smile
rb 20 came out with hitachi t3 rollerbearing turbo and ceramic wheel
t28bb have garret compressor covers and steel wheel
from what i seen in the pic u have a t3 off a vg20 or rb20 and a t3 manifold.these turbos are still alright but they have their limitations- about 140rwkw as compared to the t28s 200kw

good luck with the sale

Would be pretty damn interested in the kit if it is indeed a t28 item Rolling Eyes . Please advise. It would be good to have confirmation on what the turbo is, As at the moment it is a bit up in the air. Thanks, jeremy ,sscommodore12@hotmail.com

Cheers Twinturbo,

You probably know better than him, but from all Rex has seen the R32 roller bearing RB20DET turbocharger is a Garrett/Nissan item. Nissan Turbo's are all supposedly garrett develloped items as per their manufacturing/research partnership.

Although using a T3 flange as with the many of Nissan's larger engines, it's size is closer to that of a T28. Its distinct lack of markings further helps not. Its larger brothers the RB25 and VG30 turbos would support this.

Alas this is the information Rex has come to understand, however as with most things it may indeed be incorrect. Shall contact a few Turbo experts on the morrow and endeavour to rectify such conflicts

True is potential is not as great as its later steel wheeled brothers. However for its comparative price and the requirements of a budget 4AGTE is has produced great results for many.

Rex

The r32 rb20det turbo is indeed a bb unit. It is the series 1 rb20det with the sleeve bearing.

the rb20 turbo is a garret copy alot of the dimensions are the same as is the flanges.but they're made by hitachi.to prove it try and get parts for it from garret Laughing gcg make a upgrade kit which includes a aftermarket shaft,steel wheel,and specialy manufactured t04e compressor wheel.that is one of the only rebuild alternatives

the best way to find out is to ring garret(they work next door to me) so i think my info is pretty accurate.

the turbo in the picture is a rb25 turbo hence the reason the wheel snapped off. t28bb dont have ceramics, so whoever u bought it off jipped u Laughing Laughing
look at the markings on the comp cover 45v4 this is a rb25 turbo
dont feel bad it seems a lot of people get caught with these.

Hello all again,

Rex been a little busy the last couple of days (that'll fool em, he says Very Happy). But whats important now is that he is back...

Rex has some information for yer...

(1) It is still available, there are a couple of people interseted at the $800 mark so highest will take it.

(2) After a chat with a turbo spacialist here in Adelaide, Rex has the following information which may be of use to some.

While the Turbo may look like the other Nissan/Garret items, It is indeed manufactured by Hitachi. It was designed stand alone for the Skyline GTSt's RB20DET. It features a ball bearing core, Ceramic turbine and was very efficient for its day.

As for size, its flange is T3 but turbo's overall size is 'A small T3', so it sits somewhere between T28 and T3, as Rex said it was designed stand alone for the late model RB20DET.

It will support 250hp - 300hp with ease and is well suited to 1.6 - 2.0L engines offering good spooling and power potential, however not recommended for engines larger than 2.0L (Handy to know really as its on a manifold made for a 4AG(Z)E.

Rex thinks there is more written on his little piece of paper, but 't be still at work. If there's anything else worth making clear, he shall update on the morrow.



Joyride, your turbo looks like an RB25DET turbo. It uses the same T3 flange however is a tad larger than the RB20DET Turbo. It still uses the Ceramic back wheel and failed probaby because it was overspun.

Stay bad,

Rex

Needless to say that those few interseted have suddenly disappeared, Alien abduction, maybe?

Still for Sale , be perfect for someone looking to hang some metal shit off the side of their engine, or someone looking for the basis for a 4AGTE build.

Rex has always been in the third, just ask his mate Chris;)

Hello all,

Yes it has been sold. But to those interested, Rex is getting a number of head flanges made at the moment, so there may be a couple more manifolds available in the near future.
