Hi,

 

I have Nitron NTR's fitted onto my N/A.

 

I've just purchased a turbo now & would like to fit them onto that instead. 

 

Would it be possible to straight swap them from the N/A onto the Turbo? Or would springs need swapping due to spring rates etc? 

 

Haven't got much of a clue when it comes to suspension - so any help appreciated. 

 

Thanks, 

 

Dan

Yeah they'll be fine, just fit the correct springs rates - turbo spring rates are slightly higher at the rear IIRC (450 vs. 475, but both will probably be fine).

 

The main thing to be concerned about, is why you've downgraded to a tubby.. :P

Awesome, cheers. Will be getting the toe links and HCB's done anyway as a matter of course I think. 

 

Might be in touch later down the line... However, i'm a fair way off getting it on the road yet.

Steve recently remapped my turbo. It had a Thorney stage 1 before. Steve worked closely with me to get the set up I wanted which, for me, ended up with some additional tweaks to his base set up. The approach made all the difference and the outcome is a real upgrade...
