I've been wondering why it would be a good thing to swap my standard RB26 enginge in my R33 GT-R V-Spec for a RB30?

if some people in here, with the needed know-how, could indulge my ignorance??

It would be nice to know... to make the plans for further upgrades...

cheers

I can definately see the benifits from the list above... where would a guy like me, situated in Denmark, get my hands on a powerplant like that? and can you give me a rough price on it???

and then the next problem, how is the secondhand market for RB26's???

All the Rb engines have the cradle arrangement. The primary difference is the RB30 doesn't have oil squirters in the block. These can be fitted.

Never used oil squirters, never had a problem.

If you use an aftermarket tunable computer you can do away with a huge amount of 'crap' the stock RB26dett has.
It really is a pretty straight forward exercise, there are few things that need to be addressed but nothing hard or expensive.

We just made 910bhp from a bottom end slightly lower spec than the one skykits has for sale, we used a stock RB26 head, cams, etc 1.7 bar.
It has a stock cradle, stock used mains bolts, stock crank and stock RB30 11mm head bolts.
The torque increase is huge, makes for a nice road engine with top end power to match and it can be done for similar money to a full rebuild on a 26.
