Forging engine

Hi all!

Probably a stupid question, at what power are people forging there engines? 400? 500? Or just as soon as possible for peace of mind....

Thanks!

I'd say you're on the money with your last statement.

RB26DETT's are old and 95% have been absolutely HAMMERED!
Even the 34 series are fast approaching 20 years so people rebuild them for peace of mind.
Given the price of breaking open the block it makes sense that people install forged crank, rods, pistons... simply so if they do ever turn up the boost they can be confident that the engine can handle the power

So at the end of the day it's totally up to you chief but if i had the coin a rebuild would be on the menu for sure!

How long would the engine last though in reality?

True true, just trying to get the gist of things, some people say 600, some people say 450+ ect ect... but there seems to be no for definite answer of when's a good time to consider moving to forge internals!

Think it's just gonna be as soon as possible with mine - then that's one less thing to worry about!

Pay attention to critical parts ie using steel gaskets, replacing head bolts for studs, arp rod bolts, steel inlet and exhaust gaskets, oil control mods, bearing clearances and looking at solutions for the know issue that is a weak/ poor designed Nissan oil pump drive. Clue is in the splines
