Hi Guys

i have here are car for sale, it needs an engine rebuild inc turbo. I was selling it for it current owner, who, unfortunately, recently took the car for a spirited drive and finished the engine off!.. It needs a complete bottom end to bring it back to live. The trust 2.7kit is no longer available so i cant source the parts to rebuild it and the block is porous. Its available as in the pictures less a few items the owner want to keep, gear/handbrake knob, strut brace, steering wheel and door mirrors as these are personal items. Its now available for £10,000. Bills and receipts for over £100,000 and star of dvd and mag features. I cant bring myself to break this one as it has far to much provenance within the skyline community (i must be going soft).
Check the spec on the car and the condition, yes its Ruperts old car which in turn belonged to Barry Sheen (R.I.P).

Just a quick update for all enquiries, the engine is out of the car. The block, trust rods, trust pistons and trust crank and oil pump are all foobarred. head set up fine and sump fine. So just the block and internals required:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Someone please BUY this part of Skyline history!

I'm sure at that price she will not hang around long?

Glad to see you are keeping her in one piece :) :thumbsup:

Just to clarify a few points, the pistons have det damage though they are not totally killed off! The rod that span a bearing obviously is bin quality. The crank is a forged 2.7 trust item with damage to the surface where the shell span and probably bin quality too. The damage appears to be from bore wash diluting the oil to such an extent it became in-efficient. The pump is a grex the turbo a t78, i would advise a rebuild or replacment due to contamination from the bearing failure.

So it basically needs a bottom end and a big single?

Add prices to this list and its not that much really

rb30 block
forged pistons
Nissan crank
oil pump
Big single to fit current manifold

Doable under 5k?

Even if you spend 10k getting it sorted, it still seems a reasonable deal to me. (provided the rest of the car is top notch like in pics)

5k? Not a chance unless you want trouble!! 10k+ to get this car back to where it was/should be and on a modern single turbo set up.
