This one seems way beter than the stillen version and looks better. Who wants to be the first one with it? Looks like I would rather do this than a Titan swap.




Nissan Navara

Quote
RGMotorsport’s beautifully executed supercharged conversion for Nissan’s chunky Navara pick-up range is fast becoming one of the Randburg-based specialist’s most successful conversions in its 17-year history.

To date a total of 27 Navaras have been given the RGM Supercharged treatment, and at least five of these rugged off-roaders have passed the 100 000 km mark with a 100 per cent reliability record.

“We monitor the reliability of all our conversions, through our RGM Warranty scheme that offers cover for three years or up to 100 000 km,’ says Alan Fine, Marketing & Export Manager of RGMotorsport.

“A great portion of the Navaras that RGMotorsport have supercharged come back to RGM’s servicing division for regular servicing, and this enables us to build an impressive data base on reliability. I’m delighted to say that we’ve had no warranty claims on the Supercharged Navaras since we first began offering the conversion in 2007.

“The highest mileage recorded so far is 114000Km and one of our own company Supercharged Navaras is now approaching the 100 000 km mark and seems to get stronger in performance as the kilometres pile up.”

These sentiments are echoed by a satisfied RGM customer, Ivan Snyman who gave his 4.0l-litre Navara the RGM Supercharged treatment in November 2007.

“I must say I’ve been impressed. I had full confidence in the conversion going in, and RGMotorsport will be embarking on another Supercharging project for me in 2009.

“The beautiful workmanship in the engine bay is no small part of the pleasure I get from my RGM Supercharged Navara, but it’s the performance that’s the obvious kick. The beauty of the Supercharging approach is that when you are cruising there is no increase in fuel consumption, and when you need the extra punch it’s all there beneath your right foot.”

The kit developed for the Navara drew on RGM’s experience with the similar Nissan V6 engine fitted to the Nissan 350Z, with RGM supercharging an impressive 42 examples of this highly popular sports car.

The RGM Supercharged Navara uses a Vortech V2- SC centrifugal supercharger, which is set up to run a maximum of 0,55 Bar of boost over atmospheric pressure. It is renowned for its quiet running and is ideal for an up-market double-cab on &
Off-road pick-up like the Navara.

The conversion provides a 60 per cent increase in both power and torque. Output figures for the supercharged Nissan V6 are 317 kW “6000 rpm and 620 Nm of torque at 4 600 rpm.

“We feel there’s an enormous need for extra power amongst the on & off-road SUV fraternity,” says RGM electronics expert Steven Green. “The people who buy these vehicles often carry heavy loads associated with their active life-styles, and many tow boats and caravans, where extra power provides an enormous safety benefit.

“The reliability record RGMotorsport has achieved with the Navara is thus doubly gratifying. And of course the peace of mind that comes with the RGM Warranty, which is also available for shorter periods and distances if so desired, is just the cherry on top.”

right on, but something doesn't look right

317 KW = 425 hp
235 KW = 315 hp at the ?? usually 15-20% loss in driveline
620NM = 457 ft lbs

I took it like this...

Stock motor at the flywheel is 175Kw = 237.5 HP
Stock motor at the wheels is 141Kw = 191.7 HP
Stock torque is 385Nm = 284 LB FT at the ?

Supercharged...

At the flywheel is 317Kw = 431 HP
At the rear wheels is 235Kw = 319.5 HP
Torque is 620Nm = 457.3 LB FT at the ?

At sounds kick a$$! But my question is can the trany handle the extra power? The say they have a 100% problem free customers. Is that no failures anywhere? what about the 4X4 on turning tight with the throttle pegged? Can the transfer case handle it? Or any thing else I'm forgetting.
Not trying to knock it, It sounds awsome, just maybe a little to great. Plus I always thought if you bumped up the intake like that, the compresion would be to high, there for one would have to get low compresion pistions to counter act detonation.

Plus any word on price?

I wonder how they do the tuning. I would think since they're not Nissan specific it would be like the Stillen with the piggyback and extra injector. Those numbers they posted are pretty high, but in the ball park of the Stillen kit from what I know.

They're in South Africa, I wonder if they'd ship the parts as a kit. They're web site is a **** to navigate and it seams like they want to install it themselves.

To do FI the right way, you'd want just the charger and the intake from them. Then change your fuel pump to the walbro 255lpr, and change your injectors to ones that can push 500cc/min. Finally, you'd leave the tune to Uprev and keep the boost at 5PSI for stock pistons. That seams to be the correct way to do FI on the VQ40.

^^^ that is the same thing i was thinking.

I am going to bring up another old question buy what about a vortec system? We are similar to the VQ35 so it might be easier.

Has anyone looking at boosting gone to Vortec with this question?

Got a email back from them.

Hi Arric



Thank you for you enquiry with RG Motorsport. The kit will cost 7920.00 USD
excluding shipping costs. If you decided to go fot our kit we would require
full payment and then it takes us 4 weeks to assemble and package the kit
from date of monies reflecting in our account. The kit will include a pre
programmed Unichip piggy back ECU and the only component that has to be
fitted in a different position to our right hand drive model is the
additional fuel pump.

Yea their secondary fuel pump sits where our brake booster is. So in all honesty I would have a shop modify a 350z kit for you or just get the stillen and a good uprev tune.

Hi Arric



I made an error on the Supercharging kit pricing for the Navara. Sorry about that. The kit will cost 6525 USD not the 7920 USD I quoted.

Nice looking kit for sure but that price is still high. I'd rather take the bones and go with a turbo setup. Dollar for dollar though its not a terrible deal for the power you'd get if those numbers are replicable.
