ga16de turbo project 200sx evil twin notnser

How do you re-introduce a project that started over 12 years ago? Seriously this car was a personal project the day I drove it off the dealership lot in 1996. As I try and breathe new life in to this never ending project I find myself reflecting on it's various states. From 3 10's and 1200 watts, to fart cans and drop springs, this car has seen more parts than a stock boy at Nopi......... It is true that this car was originally purchased with the intention of competing in car audio competitions but that focus quickly changed as I started to autocross and dabble in the performance world. After attending my first track day I was a changed man and so was the car, out came the audio sytem and in went all of my money...

We knew the anemic GA16 needed a serious kick in the arse. As it were we had done every bolt-on as well as Jim Wolf Technology cams and head work and were making a ground breaking 113 horsepower to the front wheels. This is where our first crack at a turbo setup came in. At the time our project was originally turbocharged Hot Shot performance was still booming and were selling what was the best turbo kit ever produced for the GA16. We designed a turbo setup largely based around the Original Hot Shot turbo kit. We opted to do a bit of tweaking so we ordered the "piping kit" from Hot Shot so that we could source the rest of the components ourselves.

This is the original turbo setup all buttoned up. We originally dubbed this the "angry octopus".

Very Interesting. I got Nissan Parts that I can contribute to this build. Let me know if you need some NISMO tuners or Tommy Kaira body parts.

The car made 252 219 at 13 PSI through a factory cat some 8 years ago. Since then we have removed the cat and exhaust with time trial in mind. We had to dyno the car at various boost level's to have NASA classify the car. With the boost controller off (approximately 10.5 PSI) it made 211 WHP. at 12 psi the car made 234 WHP. We have dynoed the car at over 270WHP at a much higher boost level however it is not something we ran for any length of time so we never pawned it off on our readers as reliable.

As it were the car supported over 250WHP for 5 years and through full 30 minute track sessions at 95 degree ambient air temps. It was dead reliable.
