Hey guys,

Figured I would make a thread to share some of our recent work we've done for a customer that had a 700hp RB26 requirement. He wanted a show ready motor that could take daily abuse. On with the pictures... :whip:

The wide body R33 GTR rolling on VS-XX's that we're building it for:





We started from an already mildly built long block we had shelved to begin tear down:





The bottom end will be equipped with the following:

OEM R33 Crankshaft - Extended crank collar version
CP Pistons - CP Forged RB26DETT Piston Kit - Raw Brokerage - Your #1 source for GTR and RB parts!
Carrillo Connecting Rods with 3/8" CARR Rod Bolts - Carrillo PRO-H Beam Rods - RB25/RB26 - Raw Brokerage - Your #1 source for GTR and RB parts!
ARP Main Studs - ARP Main Stud Kit - RB20 / RB25 / RB26 / RB30
ACL Rod Bearings - ACL Race Series Rod Bearing Set - RB30
ACL Main Bearings - ACL Race Series Main Bearing Set - RB26DETT









The RB26 cylinder head was also prepared with goodies:

Bronze valve guides
Tomei Type-B Valve Springs - Tomei RB26DETT Valve Springs
Tomei Type-B Poncams - Tomei RB26DETT Poncams
ARP Head Studs - ARP RB26 Head Stud Kit - Raw Brokerage - Your #1 source for GTR and RB parts!







A few other modifications including: Tomei Oil Pump, N1 Water Pump, Tomei Timing Belt, Tomei adjustable cam gears, Metal head gasket, etc... we're used to complete the long block assembly:



A race ready 1500hp Ross Tuffbond Harmonic Balancer was fitted to the front as well:
Ross Tuffbond Metal Jacket RB26DETT Harmonic Balancer



The oil pan was modified using our extended sump kit for the RB26 oil pans:

To start dolling up the motor we powder coated the valve covers to match the rest of the engine accents and keep the theme of the car...

Next up... turbo and fuel

Nice but someone didn't read the rules ;)
Just read them :nervous: ...totally missed that new rule. Hopefully, no harm to anyone here as I'm passing on some pictures of the activities happening at the shop. :cool:

To achieve the power goals desired the route chosen was to ditch the twin turbo setup and go with a single turbo manifold...

Full Race ProStreet Twinscroll Top Mount Response Manifold - Raw Brokerage - Your #1 source for GTR and RB parts!

I know you guys are going to ask, "why didn't we use our in-house manifold?" Well simply put we were in on a time crunch and the recent changes to our manifold design wasn't going to allow us to have it ready and tested for delivery. Since we had Full-Race manifolds in stock it was a no brainer :doh:

Well we sent the twin scroll manifold to our ceramic coater for some of his handy work... the ceramic coating is to keep the temps down in the engine bay, keep the exhaust heat inside the manifold for better performance, and for that oh so pretty finish :D



More fuel was required than the 440cc factory units so we turned to our injector of choice for these types of builds, the Injector Dynamics 2000cc injectors:

Injector Dynamics 2000cc Injectors - RB26DETT

As well, to get the fuel through the new 11mm injectors a twin feed Tomei fuel rail was an instant match:

Tomei Top Feed Fuel Rail - RB26DETT

With the machined hats and the precisely made rail....



and with those goodies installed to the motor...



Assembling the turbo and wastegate pics... :ughd:

Since we deal with most of the RB's here in the states we have been in contact with several importers that go through the legalization process of getting them road worthy. An expensive road to travel IMO.
