Maybe you can go with some GT28 since you have to take off everything
Did you look at the ones in my post ?Wildtraveler wrote:TO funny I was price checking GT2860R just a few minutes ago. Averaging $1,000 each. Not to bad. OH or a big single What will I do?
I think with the big picture of a build it depends on what your going for fast response or more power availability. From what I have read a single GT2859-9 has a HP rating of 150-310 but you will have better response but you run the chance of not being able to produce power you may want later. As for the GT2860R(3) has a HP rating of 250-360 and you can add a cam and tune to some degree too help with the bottom end power. I started looking at the 2860 because is has the ability to get to 500 WHP and not be maxed out.Brexfast wrote:How do those compare to the gt2859-9? Less power but slightly less turbo lag?
I looked up that part number "466089-5004" and it is not listed on Garrett's site. I googled it and the other retailers had the same part number listed even the same description. hmm seems to be the same as far as specs goRainR32 wrote:

I might go with those.
I honestly don't think the average Joe Is going to be able to tell a whole lot between the two. By design the 2860-5 will spool faster and give you what you are looking for i think. To be honest I would call Garrett and try to make a friend/contact and ask what would be ideal for what you are looking for.Brexfast wrote:Does the GT2860R(3) have much lag? I'm looking for something that will hopefully get up to somewhere around 500 whp but also be streetable. I'm mostly wanting to have power for the street vs the dragstrip. If that means I can only get 450 whp then that would be better I guess. Just don't want to have to be going too fast on public roads to really feel the power. Does it have as much lag as like a GT2860-5?
I will get back to you soon. I am taking mine to a local shop today once I get them out to see what the cost might be to rebuild. If it is not much more I may go with you. Will I be able to run these with out a tune needed right away? I know I need to tune anyway because of the gas rating but for now I will be putting 110 in it for the time being. Granted it is not running right now. I still have to look up my tuning options. baby stepsM35Squirrel wrote:Here is another quick and easy solution.

Or if you don't have access here is the direct quote. And why don't you have access?
Matched pair of pristine RB26 14411-RR581 Nismo GT Le Mans steel bladed turbo's with adjustable wastegates. Minimal shaft play, 10/10 condition!
These turbos left my RB26 in perfect running condition, just upgrading to GT2860R-5's. The engine has been meticulously maintained and came straight from my R32 Skyline GTR. Its not an imported, used and abused swap. Car ran all but 3 months of its life with the boost restrictor still in the line.
Comes with the wastegates, but unattached for easier shipping. Comes with most the studs, removed two due to damaged threads. Does not come water lines, oil lines, water fittings or oil fittings.
Here is a direct comparison for the Nismo, N1 and Nismo La Mans turbochargers

No sir have not looked to hard. I want a stock one preferably. I just about got everything I want/need.M35Squirrel wrote:Decided on your replacement intercooler yet?
I tend to stay away from eBay on Items like this. I have had a few bad experiences so I normally now just spend the money. Thanks thoughRainR32 wrote:I'm not sure if this may save you some $ but I know someone who has these on his GT-R, he told me they fit and work great.

I decided to just go with 2 new GT2860R-5. I costs a bit more but I'm just going to do it how I intended on doing it later now.
Now on the turbo news I guess Garrett has changed the bearings in the GT2860R's and it is now a new part number. The old 707160-5 is no longer being made I was told and any you find on line is just residue working threw the system. The new number is not being marketed yet. It has a steel bearing casing with ceramic bearings. I slap some pictures up tomorrow when they get delivered to Boost lab in Tampa and I pick them up.
I might have to go with those then since I wanted the more power potential of the - 5 but liked the decreased lag of the - 9. How much were they? I'd definitely be interested in hearing what your experience is with them too once you get them installed.Wildtraveler wrote:I had to look it up but all I can tell so far there is much less friction and resistance. That makes it faster to spool. Just search ceramic vs steel bearings. There is a video on You tube.
