Okay, I was thinking of swapping an RB25 into my 280zx. After reading all this, I can honestly say that I am utterly confused. It isn't that hard though. I'm not mechanically inclined. If someone break this down so a hardhead like myself could understand it would help.

Funny this thread popped up, I just made a new thread on another Z forum asking about a RB25 into a 280ZX. I just came back from my local engine importer and he has a sweet deal...$2500 for a complete RB25DET with tranny, harness, and ECU. I am now serouisly considering the swap, even if not many ppl in the US have done it into a 280ZX. Oh and just for fun I asked a local shop how much for the swap...they quoted me around 4K:shock: but that was including a new high power fuel pump, a FMIC kit and Fluidyne radiator, so ill get some aftermaket goodies too. What you guys think?

I was quoted 4000 for a full driveable swap. And they had the engine there so I could actually check it out. Still a definite thought.

After a nice drive on the m1 we decided to head home but first we must go to McDonalds for a Mcfat burger, anyway a bunch of kids standing infront of a EG civic started to yell abuse at us for driving a datsun (take that shitbox home etc) what the kids didnt know is that the old datsun had a RB25det maken around 400 hp, after the little ***** fight we had a little race along mains road and u guessued it thats the kill, not because they were in a less powerfull car but because they were smart arse's.
