even if money in the engine isnt the problem, not everyone needs or wants 500+kw, theres no point spending so much on a vet until you're pushing the limits of the DET head. plus, no point building an engine capable of making such power with a stock car.

$10+K for the bare engine, then $$$ for turbo, exhaust, intake, fuel setup, computer that can run the VE, gearbox that can take the power/revs, etc.

Yeah I will be sticking with the SR for quite a while, just thinking into the future. And that is true, with today’s tech and knowledge base engines can be made to be reliable even with aftermarket goodies on board.

RB25DET NEO > RB26DETT

RB25DET NEO:
- solid lifters (same as RB26)
- RB26 rods (same as RB26)
- VCT
- Cheaper
- 350kW on e85 stock motor no worries.

RB26DETT:
- NO VCT
- More dicking about with cutting/shutting front diff/sump
- Cost more

Add higher compression to the list. I love the history of the 26, and the name, but goddamnit, Nissan should have re-designed it for the 34.

well like 95% of the time this is asked the op doesn't follow through. at the start you say you have mechanical/welding capable mates, but you also have 4 threads asking for help about fixing your rad support

VCAM system, great if you're a cocaine dealer.

In reality, for that kind of coin & time I would just spend that cash on ever so slightly longer duration cams for the RB25DET NEO, some mild porting, perhaps even a set of forged pistons, a ROSS balancer, and dry sump.. but hey, it's just one man's opinion.

mek400kWnoproblem, and more low down than a RB26DETT... bam!

I don’t plan on doing any of this now, I’m looking into the future and trying to educate myself. I thought that was the reason behind this forum, for people to learn and share knowledge about their cars?

I have two mechanically minded friends/family members that know how to weld but like myself, does not know how to carry out a repair job on a car to meat VIC road laws and legislations. I started those threads to try and contact others that have the skill set that is required, but also the educational knowledge to carry out the job to satisfactory standards. I figured before I fork out a grand for some "professional" to weld up two holes and blend the weld seem, I thought I would give it a shot on hear. Excuse me to be a little worried about getting a RWC for my car that I love to drive and have only just started learning about. Sorry if I committed an online offence.

Can we get back to the topic now? ThanksJohnnilicte for that info, that’s a lot of good constructive comments there. Cheers.

lol, panties in a bunch?
weld in plate, grind weld smooth, paint, throw dirt at it. easy peasy
if they can't do that then i personally wouldn't trust them to do anything else

Yeah that is the direction I will probably go one day! But I don’t think I will want to sell it haha. Is legal to run a high mount turbo? I read somewhere that it was illegal to alter the direction/piping of the exhaust manifold.. Despite the fact that most sr20's run aftermarket extractors?? I think the high mount would just scream "heavily modded" at a curious cop..
Also in relation to the rb25 swaps, the intake crosses over the cam cover.. can you alter the direction of the intake without changing the intake manifold, or will that just mess up air flow, requiring an aftermarket manifold like a Greddy or something?

You can cut/shut the manifold which works but obviously isn't designed for that configuration, best bet would be adapter and rb26 plenum then either the six throttle setup or (and preferred in a streeter) a single throttle convo.

Short runners= top end power
Longer = mid range power
Which is why so many people don't like the aftermarket manifolds for rb20/5

Anything but stock exhaust manifold and turbo is defect, option is to get an aftermarket low mount manifold, low mount the turbo and hide the gate well. Plenty of head sheilds, black ceramic coating.

As for your intake, DO DA THIS WUN:

^^ best setup by far. cbf digging it up, but mates r33 made heaps more midrange torque and power with the plazmaman cold pipe and intake manifold compared to a greddy intake manifold
