    NIssan/ datsun L series Gale TUrbo Kit $2000/OBO

    Hi guys,
    Helping a friend sell of a turbo kit he bought from Japan. Supposed to be very rare. The turbo kit is called "Gale". Owner said that it had something to do with the early days of Tommy Kaira before they were famous. Not sure about the details. You are all welcome to tell me more about the system. Original owner said the kit was tested once before being packed again so kit is almost new. Been stored away for over 20+ years.
    My friend ended up paying close to USD2000 for the entire kit with shipping, tax, etc. to Malaysia. All offers considered. Please be sensible. Highest offer secures. My friend sold off his L20 engined car so he has no use for the turbo kit. No haters or tire kickers please.
    Please check the pictures and see if this may be suitable for your application. I think I missed out a few other parts. Will try to update the pics later.

    I'm going to profess ignorance here. This is like a retro aftermarket turbo kit that uses a standard cast N/A header arrangement?

    Is it for an L20A or an L20B (i.e. four or six banger?)

    Hi HEzath,
    To be honest I never got around to propping against the engine to check. The length suggests that it is for an inlne 6 L20. The piping looks straight forward enough to be hooked up from the turbo to the cast black intake. The cast black intake box with the japanese writing looks like it hooks up to a standard intake manifold. Not sure about the exhaust though.

    Correct. Bolt the exhaust adapter to the "exit" of the NA header. The turbo mounts to the adpter and then the down pipe comes right off the back of the tubo and continue the exhaust pipe from there. Cool setup. Definietly rare. Not sure how many period correct aftermarket collectors would be wanting this.

    I think tristin is right. It must go to a L6 that has EFI on it. Cause it does not have an intake manifold that bolts to the head. That long black piece would mount to the throttle body.

    So which inlet manifold & throttle-body would this want to bolt up to? A factory EFI manifold from one of the R30s or 280ZXs I take it. Would they be universal?

    I might actually be tempted to make an offer on this...
