Engine Ready.. car isn't.
Engine bay (S13)
Any pics of the whole car? Nice engine. Why did you go with a 26 though? 25 is much better for our s chasis. Are you planning on stroking it to 3.0, just wondering cause of you name.
does look nice i dont know much about these things but that sure doesn't look like the stock turbo
That is nice broly, I like, i like...
Awesome pics. Anyother ones would be awesome. What do you have done to the engine?
right hand drive = big and crazy downpipe
are you fabbing custom mounts or are you using premade ones? looks very nice! got any other pics?
Just looks like a stock S13 Silvia at the moment, still got to fit my suspension, wheels and widebody kit.
It is actually already stroked to 3L, if you notice the lower cover is 2 piece.. had to add in a bit to make it fit. It is storked by using another 3L bottom end from a Holden of all things. (nissan block)
Why do you say the Rb25 is better for the chassis?.. well the SR motor is probably perfect, but i'm crazy and thought a 3L Turbo would be more fun..
Stock bottom end for now.
RB26DETT head with RB30E block. 8.5:1 Compression.
Port and polished head with mild cams.
Subzero High mount Manifold.
Garrett GT3040 Spec Turbo. BB.
Turbonetics 42mm Wastegate.
HKS Metal Head Gasket.
GTR Oil Pump.
GTR N1 Water Pump.
Custom 600x300x100 mm bar and Plate Intercooler.
OS Giken Twin plate clutch.
Apexi 600cc Injectors.
Apexi Power FC.
I think thats it..
Rb20 engine cross member. RB30 engine mount brackets and RB engine Mounts.
The bonnet will need to be modified though as it will stick up about an inch and a half..
I have more pictures coming.. engine is going in next weekend *fingers crosses*
Engine close up.
This is the car. I have since removed the sunroof, spolier and holes, and rear aerial.
Also installed Skyline 5 Stud hubs, brakes and Diff all round. (those stock brakes look so tiny.. )
Also got a hoist now.. which rules.
Oh and here are another couple of projects going on in my garage..
S13 Silvia with S15 SR20DET and 6 Speed.
OS Giken RB30DET with HKS T51R SPL and 6X Nos Foggers in an R32 GTR.. I can't wait to see this go
I'm in New Zealand
good lord thats hot
From one 240sx enthusiast to another: You're car is sick, I love it.
What's the progress on it now? That's one serious engine you're dropping there, I look forward to hearing some results! And the paint in the cleaned engine bay looks great, she's going to look beautiful when it's all said and done.
Be sure to post some pics when it's finished!
I don't have enough time in the day between working, doing conversions for other people and helping friends with there cars..
Progress wise, I have all the parts needed now including the fuel system and ECU.
Just have to drop the engine in, fit intercooler pipes and a few other small things (which take the longest) and take it to be tuned.
Then there is a mammoth job on the exterior, fitting the widebody kit and painting..
I bought the S13 at the start of the year with a blown CA18DE engine for $1000NZ, it's taking a bit longer than I thought, would have taken half the time to just keep a Skyline..
I think the turbo will be too small for a 3L engine.. but I can worry about that later.
Sounds like a good plan. It definitely sounds like it's going to be a sweet ride when it's all finished.
What kind of Skyline did you used to have? I'm sure you miss it, they are fantastic cars.
Anyways, good luck!
Had a few Skylines, All R32's. GTS-T, GTS-4 and a few GTR's.
Best one is now doing 10.3's with a stock bottom end on street legal rubber
Fun car. Over 400kw at the wheels.
Wow, those are some impressive rides and numbers. I wish we had Skylines over here...but oh well - I'll have fun with my 240 just the same
