    vxr turbo

    Hi does the vxr turbo drop straight on as a replacemen for the older z20let turbo found on the coupe version. if so do you need to remap or can you still run a standard map. cheers Terry.

    You can pretty much stick it straight on. Best bet is to change all the gaskets and banjo's etc as well whilst its off. I think something needs to be changed for the water feed but thats it. All the part numbers are on here. No need for a remap but if yu get one then you can use it to its full potential.
