B9 GTR Project Thread - Exclusive Tuning

After owning my 34 for nearly 2 years now i had no choice to rebuild my block after piston 6 had failed, I had originally planned to forge the bottom end so i decided to start collecting the parts together as they became available on this very forum








After knowing the engine had lost power i got the car over to TDI (My local Tuners) for a closer inspection to what had happened, They confirmed that piston 6 had a problem and couldn't tell me anymore until the block had been split.








I garaged the car for a few months before i decided on who to take it to.


I decided with Andy & Richard over at AMT. It was after speaking to them both about working on the head of the RB26 i decided to take the plunge.








More Parts Delivered


Finally the engine came out and it was now time for the mad scientist to split the block






















CNC Machine Perspex for the trigger kit.




Latest Edition are the wheels i got from TABZ Which i've been looking for awhile now.



To be Continued

Looking even better on the new wheels.

Any reason why that particular piston failed??

As you know i've always liked the look of those CE28n's after i saw them on yours.

I remember TDI telling me it were down to DET i believe, Not to sure what that is. I went to AMT a few weeks back and Andy showed me the piston had a small chunk missing from its side.

Oh okay..

Was the car in a relatively mild stage of tune before this piston failure?

Hopefully you will get the car back soon!

TDi South is quite a nice garage and only 20 miles away from me..

#6 usually runs leaner because of the design of the intake manifold, so tuners tend to add more fuel to #6

With the CE28's it looks so much better!

It had been mapped at TDI & I know the car had been off the road prior to me buying it, Previous owner used it for track days.

Looking good bob, not suprised at all with the luck you had at Tdi I think the saying all the gear no idea suites them pretty well. I have seen a bill from them to a skyline owner for a rebuild and it was silly money, it didn't last long either.

They are very expensive so a big bill comes as no surprise.

The problem is they don't have the knowledge to make the bill worth the workmanship.
