Xeno Thoughts..
Posted 5/24/08
Okay, so I was thinking of setting up an alcohol injection system in an R32 GTS. Sadly, I do not know much about these kits apart from some combinations of spirits used for fuel. Would an R32 GTS/GTS4/TypeM be a good choice for a daily driver? (More focused on the RB20DE engine.)

Another thing I was wondering was if the MPG was roughly 26-27. I heard someone say they had a stock GTS (maybe Turbo'd) with only a FMIC and 3' Exhaust for mods and thats what he was getting. Didnt state whether it was city or highway, though. I can't find specific info on this because the people i've been talking to don't actually have it so stock and their MPG is 13-14 city they say.

Anyone use "Turbosmart" aftermarket parts? I've been hearing that they are just as durable and effective as HKS and Greddy but way cheaper. Made in Australia and the company started out back in '96 and came to North America in recent years. Share info, please.

If its purely for a decent mpg and nothing else (not performance/wise) go for the RB20DE. mind you it will feel boring and slow..depending from what you came from. as for the alcohol conversion, never seen it done before. but good luck if you do go for it

lol thats funny and thanks, also alcohol injection will have the octane of racing fuel to help out with performance. RB20DE isnt needed to fast. More over, I might go with an RB25DE and even slap a turbo on it. I just need to do this as a project to test out some theories before doing it to the GTR as i'd rather waste time and money on a daily driver not the performance track car. My first priority is the decent MPG for daily driver via alcohol injection. If I am lucky enough to hit mid or high 30s, I'll be happy. Right now, i'm trying to get the resources for this. Money is a big issue lol.

Once I have more money, I was thinking of swapping in an RB26DE engine and supercharge it.. but yeah right now power isnt my issue or goal as if i was to stride for that I could just turn up the boost on GTR.
