    I'm hopefully getting this clip for about 2,100 USD. It has 81KM on it.
    RB25 specs: 250hp, 215lb/tq, 9:1 compression.

    re: RB25DET for $2,100. Hard to find it that cheap. It's selling for less than a S14 blacktop does. I don't plan on making 400whp anyways. For the price it's damn good.


    Of course, who wouldn't want a RB26.

    rb25 is a lot less work that rb26... its been covered a lot on Zilvia
    The rb25 needs a custom driveshaft and different motor mounts to have the shifter sit in the center of the console. You can use teh R33 crossmember but your shifter would be about half an inch pushed forward. Also, you will have hood clearance problems w/o custom motor mounts...
    motor mounts..
    the wiring i've heard is a pita also. rb26 is a lot harder than that just cause you have turbo issues, the twin turbo setup wouldnt fit due to the power steering would be in teh way, or steering something...

    Turboeing the KA will cost the same if not more, and it won't give me the power, potential and sweet sound of a 6cyl Turbo.

    I will order the McKinney swap conversion, get the driveshaft customized and balanced locally, and will use the R33 crossmember off the clip.
    I will need a new rad and intercooler due to clip damage. Of course the fuel pump will be upgraded. And i might send my KA and the R33 harness to McKinney to get fixed.

    :nono: :slap: No replacement for displacement. I'm not denying that your friend did that. I'm just saying so can the RB25 and then some.

    Once again the price will be cheaper than going KAT.
