Hi All, Been writing this one out for a while now that I have internet back , I can start pasting all my crap down :)



Names Jake.
When I bought this car shortly afterwards we found the entire cooling system was gone to shit the previous owner did not take any care of it whatsoever, The radiator was 90% clogged, the coolant in the reservoir was all muddy after a 10-15 minute drive the oil temperature would sit anywhere to 100-115 and would usually result in boiling coolant, I got it checked out and also found the coolant lines to both turbos were 100% blocked as well as most of the cooling channels in the block tried flushing and just about everything else we could think of. We did our best with it and gave it a little detune down to 360hp at all 4's for the time being, while also replacing all the hoses and main coolant line, new radiator etc. The oil temperature still rose to about 100-110 after a 20 minute drive, We only delayed the inevitable

I've made alot of tough decisions, And got this engine built to all my specs that I asked for.

Engine specs are as follows,

CP Forged pistons 87mm
H beam forged Tomei Rods
Jun Oil pump
ARP stud kits with main stud caps
Crank collar
R32 ati Harmonic Balancer
7.5Ltr Custom sump
Acl race bearings
Head running Stage 3 Maximum Race Porting
Machine to fit Hks 272 10.2mm Lift cams
1mm oversize intake+ exhaust Super tech titanium valves
Bronze guides
Dual springs with titanium retainers
Cometic Head gasket
6boost manifold

50mm Turbosmart Progate
Garret dual bb Gtx3582r
Vipec Ecu






























Out of crate on to stand.

Just being test fitted up to the old engine so they can fab everything up and get all the welding done before it comes out and goes for the new bay respray so the new paint dosnt get scratched on the new engine.

I think this is one of the first RB26s what have GTX3582 fitted. I was planning same turbo for my own build. Hopefully we can all see some results of your engine soon enough. Should be nice and responsive..close to 750hp once its done.. what hot side are you using?

Yep That's easily achievable :), However we're running an os giken twin plate because it's an engineered street registered vehicle still, And I want it to still be streetable. So the best twin plate on the market atm that isnt coppermix crap is a Os twin, Which should hold about 650 max. So it should last on a nice 650 detune :) , Running a 6boost manifold, Vband exh housing to Titanium TI Tomei Exhaust

Looking good! I hope your going to put an air filter on that turbo inlet, to stop any passing pedestrians getting ingested! :chuckle:
