  1. got it on. only thing we used from the Xterra was the supercharger, intake, lower intake, and pulley bridge. Stock ecu, stock crank pulley, stock injectors, stock maf. got a 69.5in 6 rib belt, cut 1 rib off to fit the 5 groove crank pulley and ac compressor. fits like a dream. Notched a half hole on the top right bolt for the tensioner bracket since it was off half a hole and pinched it tight with the bolt. cut the hood and we are good to go. Gonna hook up a sniffer to it to see what AFRs are looking like but with headers no cats and full 2.5in exhaust we are still getting some black smoke so dont think its leaning out. moved knock sensor up to the top of the sc but i think it may be pulling timing when it hears some stuff. gonna get it on a scanner and see whats happening there also, may stick a resistor in place. good bit of teflon was missing so we are seeing just a smidge above 5lbs on the boost gauge, we got a buddy who does cerakoteing and other engine assembly coatings which are safe for the sc rotors so we may rebuild it and get them coated. Other wise it runs great and zero issues so far
  2. im sure its possible, do we want to go to that extent though? not really. i got majority of all the parts cleaned up at work so far and i think we may shoot for this weekend to stick it all together. guy we got it from didnt really have all the bolts so thats gonna be fun. but ill keep this updated as we go. stock ecu and stock injectors should be fine since these things have a pretty fat fuel map as it is. plus we have a boost reference FPR worst case
  3. good deal. ive been trying to find someone who has attempted it. Commented on one of his videos to see if hes still around. Curous to know if its still kicking. Running na ecu and injectors may be Risky but unplugged o2s would give he extra fuel. question questions questions lol
  4. Lets talk SC stuff. Im familiar enough with it being i swapped my 00 xterra. Buddy has a 97 that is SAS and hes diggin the SC swap i did. I have a spare xterra motor with all the bracketry so we can get the alternator and ps pump swapped to the correct sides if need be but i dont see that being an issue. What i do see being an issue is that the ECUs have a different pigtail. which doesnt allow me to plug an play the xterra ecu into the r50. This brings me to my next thing. option A, stock ecu, stock injectors, Xterra maf, wide band and see whats going on. option B, stock ecu, SC injectors, z32 or maxima maf, wide band, ect Option C stock ecu, stock injectors, Boost reference FPR, wideband ECT. We had a rear mount turbo R50 once with just the FPR and it ran great on 7-10lbs. Never blew up, never hesitated, and made good liniar power. Ive searched all over the web for a SC swapped vg R50. Give me some light if you have it casue if not we are moving forward anyway with trial an error
  5. i got it off etsy, its for a toyota highlander . i cut it to fit
  6. Scored some 31x10.5 mts on wheels for 70 bucks and stuck some 7in leds on the bush guard
  7. so after probing everything, burping the system multiple times, getting a mechanical temp sender, pressure testing the system, hooking my scanner to it ... come to find out its the dash gauge itself.. i punched the dash and it started working again.. took the dash apart cleaned everything up .. took the gauge out of the cluster cleaned the contacts and printed board, re tighten it all back up and it works fine
  8. So let it warm up again, bought a mechanical Bosch gauge from advance.. popped the radiator cap off, turned the ac on and let it idle for 20-30 mins and it maintained 185-190... hold it at 1500-2000 and it would drop a little from circulation.. im thinking either there is a wire issue or the temp sender is bad but i already replaced it with another one off an old motor.. ordered up a new one and we will see what happens
  9. So check this out.. im wondering if a wire got pulled somewhere.. Not saying the cooling issue isnt there but its never ran hot before ever I go out and was gonna move it up the drive way and i notice the temp gauge is up a little bit.. its 67 degrees here in central fl and it hasnt moved since last night
  10. Drained it made sure everything flows.. same thing.. top hose is hot.. bottom is kinda warm.. im thinking thermostat
  11. So check this Pulled up in front of a buddys, put it in low range, did a 2wd 1,2,3 smokey burnout.. got down the road and it was running hot.. get home and the upper hose had slid off just enough to leak.. Put it back on and weirdly enough it wasnt low on coolant.. let it idle in the drive way and the temp gauge just goes up to H.. Bleed the system with the bleeder on the intake manifold and its good. switched out the temp sensor on the upper outlet .. same thing Been sitting in the driveway for 30minutes now and its still up on H.. thinking maybe thermostat is stuck? top hose is hot lower is kinda warm any ideas??
  12. Got some paint on the wheels this weekend. Was gonna put my manual hubs and snorkel on but lacked motivation
  13. yupp Rann them on my auto xterra before it blew up .. they would come loose on me and id hear them clunk.. would tighten them up on the trail lol ill be putting them on this weekend on my 98 with the blue stuff
  14. same https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000VSKQ7I/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 havnt had an issue with them except i should have used loctite on the main bolts lol
  15. strut spacer is in and sits nice and even.. Couldnt fit the 2.5 spacer in so i just put the 1.5 in not a bad choice.. All thats left for the weekend is manual hubs and a snorkel
  16. Scored a pair of 31x11.5 swampers last night for 100 bucks .. came with some old buckshots on wheels but the buckshots were toast Went and tested it out and she pulls pretty gooood
  17. Ive got manual hubs ill be putting on it and fortunately where i live in fl it doesnt see alot of flexing just mud and water .. plus im not to worried about replacing the cvs on it that have 209k miles on them Just trying to get this thing up off the tires some
  18. So if i read this correctly and i believe i did .. all 13 pages, nrc9447s wil give the least amount of lift and i will have no rake if i do a 2in spacer in the front correct?
  19. Here she is in all her glory. Still really baffled with the smoking issue though. Im thinking either a valve seal is trashed or the PCV is sticking time to time. Doesn't smoke a lick and then randomly it just blows smoke everywhere for a few seconds then clears up.. did it twice on a 20mile trip home and once when testing the 4wd in the picture when i backed it down the hill.. Really weird to be honest but im gonna drain some oil, add some atf do a few laps around the block and give her a tune up. Thing runs unbelievably good and quiet. I though it stalled out at a stop sign but its just super quiet lol 209k on the Odometer not sure about motor but it has the infinity motor in it Got my SF creations 2.5 strut spacer im gonna stick in and i gotta order up a rear coil spacer to match. prob gonna source parts for a SAS from my buddy. he has front and rear axle from a 02 grand Cherokee i believe and the steering box. D30 front and the aluminum D44 for the rear Time will tell Edit This thing is kinda gutless to after about 4k .. ive had a few vgs in my time and they were never an issue.. just wonder if theres something i need to really look at.. no CEL on and no stored codes or is it just the nature of the beast with these things
