What, its not like your the ONLY guy out there... twak.gif

Well, just you and Cuong. And a few of us in process.

BTW I now understand what you had to do to the tranny mount. When I was test fitting the T5, it made sense how it would not fit through. With some of the things I am considering now, that really doesn't matter anymore.

Still looking for a engine management I like. Mainly one that can deal with the MAF's. Most of the systems on the market are speed density, like your SDS. 6 on one hand, half a dozen on the other. Don't know what this whole 6 finger thing is....

In the first post you said something like the RB25 is just a bolt up with the z31 mounts. so no fabbing. Or was that in relation to something else? Anyways Does anyone know if/or/any engine mounts that can be used to put an RB30 block into a 260z?

RB25 block bolts up to the rb20 Z31 oil pan and oil pickup with no alterations. the rb30 block is the same as all rbs and you can use the Z31 rb20 engine mounts. but since the rb30 is taller differnt mounts would more then likely be needed since the rb 26 barely clears the hood itself

A Z31 I take it you are talking about an early model 300zx.. In Australia I think they came out here with a 3ltr v6. But it wont be too much trouble to get some sent from Japan.

Well, yes I am another person who wants to do this RB26DETT swap. I thought you guys would be interested in this. I am going to try to keep this swap under 5000.00 I hope.

 

I have located a JDM engine importer that will sell everything except intercooler for 4000+ shipping.

 

RB26DETT engine/harness/turbos/5 speed 2wd trans/converted oil pan.

 

Maybe this is true but my buddy lives close and he is going to confirm what I would actually get.

If anyone has heard anything good or bad about these guys let me know.

 

I also heard that you could use Z32 egine mount without ant mods????

Wow, never new a 200zr existed until now

 

Anyone know a parts number for that oil sump and pick up?

 

I'm guessing the local Nissan dealer has never heard of a z31 200zr and will probably order me a skyline's rb20det oil sump and pick up

Hey RB, how are things with the Z? what sortof problems have you been having with standard Z parts since you put the RB26 in there? whats the furure for the engine? how much hp are you planning on going for? man i cant wait to do my swap, but i have been considering the 2JZ swap because it really hasnt been done much, and certainly doesnt have any in depth info on what needs to be done and i would sortof like to be the person that does that... well im still in the middle because right now i could get a R33 or 32 half-cut to my house for around five grand... and im not sure what the 2JZ is gonna cost, i found half cuts for $7999 OUCH, so im gonna keep looking...

well right now im at just under 400hp to the wheels. next mod to engine will be turbos. either a big single or twin super 60 hybrids. without going internal i want 500 rwhp, and low 10sec 1/4.

 

the only standard z parts are in the rearend. I keep breaking halfshafts. Im currently trying to mod the rear end housing to except the 300z bearings so i can use the stub shafts and axles. this setup if it works should handle what i want to do check out here

 

If all goes well i will still retain the IRS setup but it will be much stronger then the halfshaft setup but we will see

Zach,

Some food for thought on the cost of the swap.

You said:

because right now i could get a R33 or 32 half-cut to my house for around five grand...
I want to pass on some things I learned while researching for my swap,(motor is in shipping right now).

First, if you buy a half cut, you are not guarenteed,(but spelled properly) it will have everything. By everything I mean airflow meters, starter, clutch etc.. Second, it will come with the GT-R AWD transmission. That means you must now source a GS-T tranny. Ok, now you need a clutch as well, etc.. I realize you already know this, but you get the idea? Brad and I bought from a guy named Bernard Plett. He provides a package deal. For $6800 you get everything you should need to perform the swap, the oil pan, mounts, etc... And anything else you may need down the line he will support you at cost. Meaning if you need a NISSMO oil pump, or a 3 disc clutch, he will buy it and sell it to you at his cost plus shipping. The only caviot is it must be for the project. And if you are missing something,(which you shouldn't, but it can happen) like say a starter, he will get that to you no cost,(Brad's motor was missing it). When I started adding up what I was going to need, it always came really close or over that figure. Sure I could find it cheaper, but in the end I would end up spending more. And the support at cost for later items was also a big swaying factor for me. And he was a pleasure to deal with.

Just wanted to give you a heads up. My motor was recently pulled from a 2000 model Stager 260RS. Think of it as a wagon version of the GT-R. It had about 10k miles,(~16k kilometers if I remember). I think Brads had ~12k miles. Most of Bernard's motors had between 40-60k miles. He has 5 R-32's in stock, and I think one or two R-33's all in Reno Nevada. I highly recommend him. His e-mail is:

[email protected]

And his name is Bernard Plett. Tell him Bob Hanvey sent you.

My question is if there is anyone in australia or japan that would be willing to set a Z guy up with all the parts needed to do the swap. someone that would get the motor tranny and oilpan and motor mounts all together? And also not rip a Z guy off in the process? Just ccurious , thanks
