Im not sure If i want to buy the TSI manifold or have one made by ProTec.

The TSI manifold doesnt have a wastegate flange. The Protec manifold can be made with a tial 38-40 mm or a standard HKS wastegate.

Would it be worth buying the manifold with the wastegate flange and then a Tial Wastegate? Or will the turbos wastegate work just fine.

Ok so I bought
-T28 turbo
-n60 maf
-259cc injectors
-AEM EUGO wideband
-Walbro 255 fuel pump

The T28 turbo does not come with any oil fittings. My question is, Ive been looking around everywere but don't want to buy the wrong part. What fittings fit on the oil inlet/outlet part of the turbo?

Earls lines hmm. I havent looked yet but will after this post.

Ive been using this thread and trying to interpret what to order.
http://www.sr20forum.com/turbo-guides/89944-long-lost-t25-t28-parts-list-thread.html

I want to get the right oil fittings for the turbo for sure. But im worried Ill get the wrong oil lines. Such as the oil line mating with the turbo but not with the fitting for the return. Im actually just starting to understand this and was hoping there was a kit insted of buying every fitting seperatly.

Btw, the eugo AEM cost 254.00 plus 80 dollars shipping sence I live in alaska.

I chose the 3 day air shipping sence I would want that sooner then anything else I ordered to come it.

oh ok, you must have gotten either the gauge kit or the single channel kit. the one im selling is the dual channel kit, thats why its a bit more expensive.
as for the earls lines, you get the whole kit - oil line, water line and water return line.

You'll need something to tune your engine as well, either tuned ECU or an A'pexi S-AFC 2. A tuned JWT ECU is quite costly, and you'll be waiting an indefinite time for the company to get around to doing it. Without tuning, your engine will flood and get inaccurate MAF readings, and run like straight balls.

i wouldnt get an safc. like someone else told me - an safc is just an expensive way to hack up your harness.
get a calum or enthalpy tune. i have a jwt tune myself on both of my turbo'd cars - turbo altima and sr 240 and they work flawlessly. true, its a wait for the jwt tune, but i would say its worth and if he orders one now while hes building, it might come in time for when hes done.

Unfortunately, in terms of GA16DEs, only JWT makes tuned ECUs. Both Calum and Empalthy do not :(. Which really blows. I didn't really have to hack my harness for my S-AFC 2, and I haven't had a single problem with it. But, if you have the budget for a JWT tuned ECU, go for it. Some of us, though, don't.

The wideband came in the mail. Ill doing all the wiring today.

Still need to buyIntercooler+piping and BoV
External Wastegate block off plate
Turbo elbow+downpipe+exhaust
Oil return line kit.

For the oil return line kit I was thinking of buying the oil pan return tube and weld it on to my oil pan. Then use some sort of fitting on the turbo so I can attach a rubber hose from turbo to oil pan.

For the exhaust part of my turbo, should I buy the stock elbow from a sr20det? What are my options. Ive been trying to figure that out

It doesn't have a place for an external, or at least mine doesn't

Hey all. Im still around. I just had surgery and moved around the same time. So I just got my internet going again.

I thought the manifold was external wastegate setupt. When It arrived, sure enough it wasnt. I have everything I need exept for the turbo elbow, turbo compressor outlet pipe, some oil line fittings, and a downpipe+test pipe or new exhaust.

Being in alaska really kills the motivation for this project. October is starting to get colder, and darker quicker. My 2500 dollar budget went over and Im waiting on funds to pick up the rest of the pieces.

Only thing I have done was wire up the gauges, and route the wires. I installed my ebay clutch (xtd stg 3) and is broken in and gripping great. Found out I have a tranny fluid leak by my drivers side axle. Figures sence Ive pulled those axles out soo many times.


I will be using 259cc injectors, s14 maf, and a S-AFC 2 for tuning. If the 259cc's max out at 7-8 pounds, then Ill throw in the sr20ve (333cc?) injectors and see if the safc can adjust accordingly.

Thats pretty much it for now. Ill show pictures of my sorry looking 200sx sometime soon.
