Mate go to Advan in Auburn. They have done heaps of cars including my 400rwkW car.

I'm stage 3 LPFP and PI, 100% E85.

I am running an Australian made single GT3582r highmount kit by a member on here Eric82, Pump 98 470hp and 607hp on E85 and Meth. His turbo thread is here... http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showth...ghlight=eric82

If you have fueling sorted out the largest current RHD are rb evos.

The others in that size range are vtt gc,gc lite(super spoolers) and mmp stage 3s. These are currentlt LHD but will be made RHD at some stage.

One step smaller pures or rb stealths and vtt 2+
One step smaller rb next gens, vtt stage 2s

You can buy hexons but for the size they dont work as efficiently as the others.

I've seen Marty hit around 420 with RB's as far as I recall and Hexons were a little more in the 430's If I recall correctly. Nobody that I'm aware of has hit 450 with stock frame twin turbos yet though I'm not aware of them all in AU. This however is on a Dynodynamics Dyno which reads significantly lower than Dynojet.

Dynojet is around 15% happier than our Aussie Dyno Dynamics.

The first batch of 400rwkw cars have all come out of Advan ages ago including some of the more recent Melbourne guys. Kents RR700s made 435 recently, my RBs 422 last year (now fcuked at 3000kms), Nicks RBs 425 (Melb), Marty's 413+ and Greg's RB smokers 406. List is now way longer than this...

Few cars in Melb, Steve, Tawfeq, Socket and others going to RR700 and Pure2s could all see 450rwkw (dyno dependent) when maxed out with the right mods if they 'push their cars.

New projects out of Nizpro (VTT GCs), Brule in NT (RB Evo) and some new Advan/JD75 performance projects will set the bar way higher by end of year.

Depends what dyno.

All those mentioned can make 450kw with e85

The vtt range is showing good results and hes working on a set of gcs thst flow even more then the originsl gc.

Rbs have upgraded plumbing all round which is what rhd cars need.

Im a rb fan but not one sided in suggesting others thst are showing good data.

I dont like hexons as they have shown to be less eficcient for there size.

I'm hoping those GC's yield some data soon that they fit RHD application and they make big power. Then there is the option of going ball bearing or GC+ in a few months (800hp) via a modular swap out. Options coming. Time is the killer.

The vast majority of RBs supplied into Oz have all smoked and failed with very low miles. Survivor RBs have the power wound back significantly. The current RB offerings may be different but RB has left a bad taste in many customer mouths. Many will not touch RB now.

RR700 have proved to be the highest reading modded stock frames with publicly released figures of 435rwkw (583hp), then add another 12-15% for dynojets, approximately. These are Kents turbos and they are going well.

As per my previous post the next 6 months will see big platform change here in Oz as our motors have started to give under the high HP loads. Lots of cars in workshops being rebuilt.

Yep. Think Nizpro will be the first to get some numbers on the GC's.

Our issue here is RHD clearance. There is no room and some new US stuff just wont fit.

RHD GC's are currently undergoing testing with Nizpro. On a maxed tune they did 738 whp (540 kW). We hope to have data on fitment/etc within the next couple of weeks.

Chris and Tony,

Very exciting stuff. Hoping we can extract up to 500kW on the local Advan dyno of we get the chance to get a set. Currently there is no other options at this power level available.

My car is ready, built motor with ported head motor next to the car just needing some 500kw turbos. :-)

Nizpro - get cracking!

Other option would be a big single.

Single indeed. If I can fit a GT3582r in, you should be able to fit something in slightly bigger no issues.

Top mount is no go in NSW.
A bottom mount would be preffered but there are lots of clearance issues and nothing is straight forward.

I thought advan was test fitting the motiv kit. Maybe call them to confirm. In any case, local fabricators could make bottom mount single scroll. The issue I ran into asking around was if i wanted twin scroll and bottom mount. I've been debating these choices myself and with the current exchange rate id say a bottom mount single scroll will work out cheaper than cast twins. Especially since I would be doing some stuffing around getting inlets and unrestrictive (crimped rhd) outlets on the cast twins to fit.

Way more expensive than cast twins and there is much to do clearance wise around the steering shaft and knuckle, engine mount relocation etc. Advan are not developing the Motiv kit but will install it when ready.

Saw this thread, and wanted to update for all the RHD guys left out in the cold. As of yesterday Nizpro has the RHD GC's installed on their test car, along with the shotgun Single Barrel, and are extremely happy after a few test drives. I am hoping to get some pictures, and feedback to make sure we do not have to make any changes, if we do we will implement those, and the RHD GC's will be ready for public consumption. This means GC lites, GC's, and GC+ will all fit RHD as these are modular all using the same housing. Almost there guys!
