  1. Hey there, My name actually is Wesley despite my username, I've loved the Z series for an underwhelming 10 or so years. I'm new to the forum and I've dabbled in Classic Z Car forums for lotsa stock parts and rebuild resourcing. Recently I've been hunting and comparing prices on an RB25DET Series 2 (eng and trans) for my '72 240z who is lacking a working heart. I was recommend to this forum at a car event in Toronto, supposedly this is the hot spot for resto-mod and aftermarket Z builds! I don't believe this is the correct place for an introduction so i'll ask away. Has anyone purchased a used engine from a Toronto locale engine store, and what were your thoughts on service and product reliability? Additionally I am wondering if anyone has had good experiences with overseas JDM imports. I'm mostly concerned with accuracy of described product, product knowledge, and some form of warranty or guarantee. I've seen a 30-day limited warranty everywhere I've visited, and to be quite honest I will likely take the whole month to do the swap. That said, I may not be able to run the engine for testing before my warranty's up! Thanks so much for the read, and a quick thanks to every poster in the RB series forum. SO MUCH INFORMATION Wes
  2. Hey Hybrid Z! I am in the process of product procurement for my RB25DET swap into my 260Z 2+2. I have recently decided to snag a cd009 due to the price and the fact that it's a 6 speed and its abuse abilities. What is the process like for mating the cd009 to the RB? I understand cutting is involved but I see some images of a plate (collins) onto the engine then bolting the CD009 to that and I also see some images of cutting the entire CD009 bell housing off. I do not understand what is needed to be done to mate the two. Has anybody done this? If so could you shed some light? I know a custom trans crossmember will be needed. Thanks for your insight, -Don
  3. Hey all, Long time lurker, first-time poster. I am currently in the process of building an early 240z with a rb26 in it. I have just finished rebuilding my motor and mating it to the rb25 gearbox so I am in the process of getting it all mounted up in place. I am using the CXracing mount kit. I would have gone the McKinney kit but unfortunately here in Australia the dollar was low at the time of ordering so this was the only affordable one. Anyway, I have got the engine mounted up and am having trouble getting the gearbox up in the tunnel as the speedo sensor is interfering with the ears. I'm not sure the best way to go about fixing this issue. I have seen plenty of pics of peoples mods of notching out the bracket with the other style of tunnel mounting but I can't see any solutions that utilise the cx mounts I have. Has anyone come across and solved this problem at all? I have uploaded 2 pics of the interference, and also one of the mounts that I have that attaches between the ears. I have already tried just moving the engine forwards but the mounts are already set such that the engine is as far forward as possible. Any help would be much appreciated!!
  4. Sorry if this is a dumb question, I tried searching the forums but didn't find anything that really talked about this. I'm doing an RB25 swap into a 280z, so I've had the oil pan converted to a rear sump type. I then realized that the engine had these two attachments that bolt on the sides of the engine near the back for the transmission to mate with. Due to the rear sump oil pan those don't fit. It looks like there's 4 bolt holes on the engine block that would still work with the trans, not including the starter bolts. Are there modified side attachments I need to get for the trans, or do you just use the 4 bolts you can? That doesn't seem right.
  5. Looking for an RB26DETT with the RWD conversion to install into my 75 280z. I will arrange shipping if needed. I can pick up if within 300 miles of Lake Charles, LA. Must be in running condition with little rebuild needed. Harness is a must as well. PM me if you have anything.

  7. 1973 Datsun 240Z

    1973 Datsun 240Z Silver exterior, black interior RBR 17x8 and 17x9 wheels 245s up front, 275s in rear Wheels and tires are new Blended fender flares Sparco steering wheel (factory wheel also included) ~76,840 miles, and I believe the mileage is accurate. I've driven less than 300 miles since owning it. Engine is the factory 2.4L but has been modified (original owner is deceased and details are unknown). The car does run, but not well. It shows low compression on cyl 3 and 6, likely from stuck rings. I purchased a good 2.8L motor from a friends '78 to swap in to make the car run while the original engine is repaired, but haven't gotten to it. The 2.8L engine will also be included with the sale. The factory 4-speed trans is still in place. My long term goal was to swap in an RB25DET engine. I bought the engine/trans set up and a million things to go with that swap, but never got started. The interior is in excellent condition. Seats, dash, doors and headliner are nearly flawless. The exterior is similar. I have a hard time calling even a brand new car "perfect", but the paint is overall in great shape with only a few blemishes. Overall the car is a real looker (at least I think so). The engine just needs some TLC to get her running strong again. Non-smoker, always garaged at my home and stored under the car cover. Clean Texas title $10,000 obo I will also make the laundry list of RB25DET swap parts available to the buyer (if interested) with the car before listing them separately.
  8. Rb25 into Z

    So I'm having trouble picking out which conversion kit for my z but I'm stuck between two kits can someone who has done the setup suggest which kit I should get. And if anyone has used the cxracing conversion kit give me feedback on it thanks.
  9. Made this turbo back exhaust for this Rb powered 240z, it's made from oval tubing and round tubing. Fully tig welded stainless steel. A HKS Hi-power muffler was used at the back. Rear spare tire well was cut in order to clear the enormous muffler ( customer didn't realize how big the canister was) Cut some sheetmetal and Beadrolled it for strength and style. Came out pretty clean and it sounds awesome! I will try and upload a video here or link to youtube.
  10. Gather around folks I'm building my dream car. Some may know me here, some may not. I've been building nissans for 15 years now. My last personal build started in 2009 on this forum but I stopped documenting after 2011. I just sold my entire setup to my best friend, which I also sold my 2nd 240z too. So I'm starting to document a new chapter in my build. I tore down my black car and we are completely rebuilding my friends orange one better than ever. The original setup was amazing, never let me down. R34 NEO motor, GT35R, Tein coilovers with edfc, clsd, axles, wilwoods.... etc. This brings us to my new build and it's current state on my rotisserie waiting to get massacred. I'll post some photos and get this ball rolling Donor car was an ever so gracious R33 GTR Vpec, 90% of parts came from the same car. I will be grafting front and rear sub frames into my Z chassis, including the AWD system, Brembos, suspensions (tein), Axles, Diff, etc from the GTR... I've even gone ahead and gotten the GTR pedel set and Master so she should feel as GTR as possible from inside. Steering column, steering rack all modern and hydraulic (and left hand drive ) I've collected 90% of the bizarre hardware associated with the awd system too. Also will be doing GTR gauges, chassis strengthening, new wiring, wheels, so on and so forth.... My old car was quite the track beast, I intend to make this one deadlier than ever. More so I just love building so I'm doing it Grab some popcorn, this ones going to take a minute!
  11. Hello all! This is actually my first forum post, as I have been lurking quite a bit. Please let me know if I have posted this in the wrong place. I am currently in the midst of a 240z restomod, with a remarkably clean shell out in the yard. I have solidifed the plan to put a RB25DET in it in the foreseeable future, as the charm of the RB engines has quite a hold on me Now the kicker is, I'm on a tight budget, being in high school and soon college. I want to begin to build the car and get the internals working before I drive it over to a paint shop to get a nice finish (it is currently primered). My initial thought was to go with the RB right off the bat, however this would result in the car being off the road and in the shop for much longer than I can stand, as well as be a huge task for a newbie mechanic. My current thought is to purchase a good ol' L28 and a 5 speed tranny for use until the car looks and moves how I want, then RB later when money is not as tight. Another reason is that I love the feel of the L series with a passion and want to get to know the engine before moving to bigger and better things. Is this a reasonable plan or will I sink too much money into an engine I plan to replace anyways for it to be worth it?
  12. Which is better rb 25 or rb26?

    Hi everyone, I have a quick question for those of you in the know who have been playing with the rb series of engines. I am looking at doing a 280z build up and plan on using an rb engine. My problem is is that I am not sure which one to go with. I am not as concerned about the cost differential between the two as I am about the driving characteristics of each motor. I am planning on building a canyon carver, spirited street driving and an occasional autocross car. I would love to have rwhp in the 400-425 range, so fairly mild as I see compared to other builds on here. I am concerned with turbo lag and drivability/tractability around town and in the canyons. With all that said which is the better engine to go for, Single turbo rb25 or dett rb 26? Thanks for your input.
  13. Transmission slip yoke for RB25 transmission. This yoke is needed for building that custom driveshaft for your RB swap. This 30-spline yoke uses common 1310 series u-joints. We can also make complete new aluminum and steel driveshafts to your specs. https://zcardepot.com/driveline/drive-shaft/rb-transmission-yoke-for-driveshaft-rb25.html?search=rb25
  14. RB240Z Final bits and pieces...

    Good Night Hybridz Faithful. (East Coast time) I'm not new to this forum, but I think this might be the first time that I posted in the forum. I am building an RBZ. I know that I'm 20 years late but I'm hoping that some of you "been there, done that" guys are still on here and can help/guide me to what I need to get this project on the road. My motivation is extremely high these days since I'm riding a bicycle to school 5 days a week, 13.3 miles (one way) on one of the most treacherous roads in PA. And, I'm not as young as I use to be, so I don't know how long my body might hold up doing that. LOL... So, to the point. 1973 240z. RB25det (S2)with trans, ECU, etc. STOCK BUILD. Focused on getting her breathing on her own again. I'm about 80% done with my build. Probably would be 90+ if I had a few of the miscellaneous answers that I'm looking for, since I have all the big parts. I've been searching all over this forum and some things you have to be "very specific" about to get it to pull up what I'm looking for. Or maybe I'm just asking the wrong questions to the search engine. Anywho... 1. First question. Clutch- Cant find a lot of direct answers about the clutch and the lines to it that make it work. Either people are modifying their setup to be different or they seem to skip right over that part. Or maybe I'm just blind. With the RB25 trans, I found out (by trial and error) that the rubber line attached to the clutch slave cylinder is a direct bold on to the hardline on the 240z frame rail. However, there is another line that comes from the drivers side fire wall and comes across the engine bay to the passenger side of the transmission (on the 240z trans) but I cant find anything that it goes to on the RB trans. Does it not go to anything anymore? Its a thick line with a cable in the middle of it. 2. Second Question. Hoses- Where can I find a diagram of the hoses (vacuum, water) and where they go? 3. Third Question. Gauges- Has anyone found a "tried and true" way of getting the stock 240z gauges to work with the RB25? 4. Fourth Question. Shifter- What is the reason the shifter on the RB25 transmission is so fat? Can it be changed out? Thank you for all you help. DatDude

  16. RB25 transmission mount

    I'm doing an rb25 swap and the mounts i purchased require a stock rb25 trans mount... I got my motor and trans out of a swapped s13 and the stock trans mount is long gone! anyone have one they would be willing to sell or donate to the cause? Thanks!
  17. Hello, I own a 76 280z which is all bone stock, and the clutch is starting to really slip, almost undriveable, and a friend of mine offered me, his used clutch which is almost new, the reason being hes going to be making about 600-700 hp on his ls1 swapped 300z. But he offered me to have his old clutch because he just ordered a new racing clutch for his car, which was about 1700-2000$ and I was just wondering if a RB25 clutch would fit with the L28 transmission?? Thanks in advance.
  18. Hi there i have looked a bit everyone and dont know quite whats wrong and how to get my speedo working. My dash cluster is new and 100% working. But still my speedo doesnt move i was told its due to having a rb20det tranny which uses a mechanical speedo while the cars rb25 requires an electrical speedo. I was told that by putting in a rb20e r33 speedo drive would resolve this . Im not too sure on how accurate this is and Id like any tips or ways to resolve the issue. Preferably not too expensive. Im sure many people have done this b4 looking for how to get the speedo working again . (NOTE : previous owners dropped the 20det gbox in , i was told its a small issue but more i looked into it after buying most mechanics have suggested putting in a rb25det bigbox, i dont see the need as the gbox is tight and strong and I am running no modes all stock factory 100,000kms. engine 60,000km tranny )
  19. Hey guys and gals, wanted to update you on some new Raw Brokerage goodies: Our new billet merge collector manifolds are everything our traditional manifolds are plus more. Made out of one piece 304 stainless steel billet leaves no room for error with runner transition into the turbo. These manifolds allow you to continue to retain both power steering and A/C and clear up to 4" downpipes on both LHD and RHD chassis. Good for those with 240sx RB swaps and upgraded Skyline chassis'. For more details: http://www.rawbrokerage.com/raw-brokerage-billet-twin-scroll-top-mount-turbo-manifold-rb20-rb25-rb26/ We'll have a S30Z specific model made if there is enough interest. Let me know. Thanks for your continued Raw Brokerage support. Together we can continue to create and provide bigger and badder RB20 RB25 RB26 and RB30 parts for the community of enthusiasts!

  24. Complete RB20 dimensions

    I need help getting dimensions for a few parts of an RB20. I currently don't have one or have the current funding to buy one. So I need help to get the following dimensions: cylinder head intake ports, cylinder head valves, cylinder head intake manifold bolt pattern, cylinder placement on block, and spark plug placement on cylinder head. I know I just need to get my hands on one but thats not to easy in the USA. This is so I can make a basic 3D soildworks model to run some solidworks simulations for both of my current projects. Any help is greatly appreciated thank you.
  25. I have been searching for an rb25 rwd tranny locally (in canada) to use in my rb26 240z swap and have found nothing but rediculiously high prices, one guy quoted me $1800 for just tranny lol. There are currently a few trannys on ebay for about $700 + probably $200 shipping that i could buy but its also a bit high. There is a local guy out here that Iv been talking to that says he could take my awd tranny and cut off the transfer case and weld it up to make it a rwd only application for $250. I did a bit of research and it seems like its been done before and works. Would like to ask you guys if once the transfer case is cut off are there any major differences in this tranny and the rb25 one, specificly in size, weight and length? I bought a complete car to get the engine from and Iv test drove it many times down the back alley lol, and the tranny shifts properly so atleast i know everything is already working. Are there any reasons why i shouldn't go this route that i havnt thought of?
