Simply, has your RB engine has a re-build. Either as an upgrade or because of failure/wear and tear.

yup, 3 times this year. oh i love bodgers......... DIY is the way to go....

1st time top end rebuild for head gasket etc, few other bits

2nd time, head gasket done properly at another garage and replaced the inlet cam that the 1st garage managed to miss.....

3rd time, oil pump and turbos etc went pop (about 30mins after chatting with you R32 Combat in reading). all being upgraded now with N1 and GT2860's etc

Not yet, but will do at some point. Quite fancy some forged goodies for the bottom end but would rather do it at my own convenience rather than be forced to do it by something going BANG.

honestly......:eek: :eek: so that 873bhp graph wasnt achieved with a boost hike and a sniff of gas then:chuckle: :chuckle:

theres no option for dont know in the poll though and i havent got a clue.
would imagine there must be a few owners of imports that must be in that situation though??????????
125k km though with perfect running and zero oil consuption so maybe???????????????:confused: :confused:

Well allthe GTR'S i have ever owned have never had engine rebuilds the first R33GTR i had for 86,000 miles from new at 440hp never a days problem in 3 years, my R34 GTR i had for 62,000 miles from new in 30 months at 440+ hp never a problem, Current R33 GTR 53,000 miles at 525hp no problem.

The key to ownership is warm them up to over 70 degrees oil temp before abusing, cool them down after ever run and never ever over REV! this combined with good oil changed frequently seems to work.

TOUCH WOOD!
