  1. Clutch Install

    At a guess, 3 hours labour at $120 per hour, so $360 in labour + clutch ($300-$500) + oil ($20-$40) + machining ($50-$80). It's not that difficult a job, it's just a little awkward with the size of the box. The only time I've had issues is when I had Nismo Engine mounts, it seems to lift the engine to the point where installing the gearbox becomes difficult.

    If you want one for rego, you can borrow mine.

  8. Wheels, Tyres and suspension needed

    To answer your questions: 25 years is a long time. Depends how you feel about having to replace the turbo? In a rush it would only be a 1 hour job. Doing it carefully, maybe 1 whole day. When I had a CA18DET in my Silvia, I bought a Nissan T28BB turbo, second hand from an import. It bolts straight on and I think it makes plenty of power (for me). I didn't end up using it but I put it on my S14 SR20. I prefer most factory engine parts for reliability however I would definitely change the turbo and oil water lines while it is out. I think somewhere between 10-12psi or upto 0.8bar. Would be nice to tune the car. You could get different injectors and a 2nd hand Nistune. I think if you run factory boost of 10psi, the computer would be able to cope since it is programmed rich from factory for engine longevity. My thought are if you really wanted to keep the car CA or change to SR. I don't mind CA18DET but the parts are expensive and rare. I can sometimes find good deals with SR20 where as CA's are rare that I accumulated as many parts as I could when I had one. When it came time to sell, it was also worth nothing unless I wanted to wait. If you do end up changing to a SR20, this whole saga could repeat itself and you could be looking at a forged SR20 motor. If this was me, there is no way I could afford to hand over the kind of money you just did these days. I sort of went through this and spent a lot of money on my first car. There was no way I could let it go when the car stopped. It is now in my backyard, waiting for the many thousands of dollars work of work required for it to be up and running again. I ended up changing into a different car that I liked, which I was less attached and have since sold.
  9. Local PARTS for sale

    Selling the RB20DET from my 4 door. Was auto and still has the flex plate on it. Comes with most things such as the turbo, computer, etc except it doesn't have a coil pack harness. It looks like the wiring loom might have had a piggy back but that was before I owned it. I think kms was around 220,000. I have a new turbo gasket for it as well. Asking $900 ono. It is out of my car and ready go.
