Twin-turbo Skyline engine in an NSX....

So before anyone laughs at me for even bringing this up I was wondering:

Do you think the skyline engine would fit in the NSX?
I would tend to think so seing as the skyline is a straight six, so it should be a bit more narrow right?

The reason I was asking is because the naturally aspirated NSX engine has a compression ratio of 10.2:1 and Please correct me if Im wrong but wouldnt reving at 7 or 8 thousand rpms with more than 10 lbs of boost cause the engine to detonate/blow?

The highest hp I have seen on an NSX is around 430 or so running twin turbos at 7-9lbs however, I see skylines (compression of 8:5:1) pushing in excess of 600HP and they redline at around 7,500 right?

What do you think? yay or nay?

(I'm not looking to be ridiculed just educated)

Re: Twin-turbo Skyline engine in an NSX....

First off, it's basically impossible because the NSX is a mid-engine rear drive vehicle, whereas the Skyline is a front-engine rear drive vehicle. The transmissions are set up for completely different cars so it wouldn't work.

Second, you can build a C32 (NSX engine) to be low compression or high compression. You can also stroke or de-stroke it. The same holds true for a the skyline motor. Your horsepower potential with either motor is basically limited to how much money you have but I guarantee there are NSX's with way more than 430hp.

Ok well in that case, do you think that this turbo kit is a bunch of Bullsh**?

I have heard nothing of this kind of power before except on:


http://www.daliracing.com/v666-5/inf...ion/index.html

supposedly it had like 700hp...

Re: Twin-turbo Skyline engine in an NSX....

I don't think its bs at all there's a guy on the NSX boards NSXPrime that has a 95X with over 120k stock bottem end, stock heads, stock trans, Gt35R (big turbo LOL) and all of the basic things needed for a turbo setup nothing special. Ohh and a stage 3 clutch and flywheel. He ran a 10.78@136. The cars I see doing that are right around 500wheel plus. So I would say that kit is very on target.

although i basically agree with the rest of your post, in this part, you arent correct. Im not going to argue the technicalities of it; however, space confinements aside, this has been done already. The Tommy Kaira ZZII uses an RB26 with upgraded turbos in an MR setup that still uses the AWD capability of the RB26. I cant say for sure if the tranny is the same, but it has been done nonetheless...

Re: Twin-turbo Skyline engine in an NSX....

why would you want to swap a v6 that has a bigger bore than the skyline's rb26, basically nsx's engine is more powerful than the skyline's? yeah maybe the skyline is a supercar but if u dig up the engine and compare with the nsx's, nsx is more powerful
