Nice build my friend. Are you sticking with the stock snails?

P.S. Hit me up if you have any spare valve covers lying around (RB26)

Staying with the stock turbos for now but when I can afford to I'll switch to
N1's, and the coil cover is broken in the back and the timing cover is spoken for when I'm done with it, but I'll let you know if that changes.

Default Re: My RB26DETT Convertible build

I just copy and pasted this from NICO I got lazy ha ha ha

Here are some pictures and updates

Here's the Downpipe issue that is being worked out right now I edited the picture to explain but
basiclly the o2 elbow on the front turbo comes out in the middle of the steering shaft (common issue
from what I hear)









Crashed my Crappy Civic I built from back in the army days.


Brand new from Japan, rb25 (non-Neo) Crank pulley
Down side was that it was a 4-8 week wait
Up side New stock part for $100




Last Picture is of the motor, I'll have more pics thursday


Also picked up 88 300zx BMC
Brembo OE S14 Rotors for the S14 Rear brake conversion
Nismo Short shifter for RB25

JUST A WORD OF CAUTION
CHECK YOUR ECU
make sure the part number matches the motor, someone on here pointed out that my motor
wasn't a R33. (yeah that was my bad)
BUT the ECU that was sent with the engine was a R33 N1 ECU (2371M-24U00) as you can see my motor isn't an N1
if it was I'd be doing a happy little dance in my living room :woot: ha ha ha
SO I researched the best guess ECu for my motor and went with a 23710-05U61 early 93 round-a-bouts
and is being sent to AutoVaughn Performance in Murfreesboro, TN for a NIStune Type-2 package (board install,
cable, software etc..) As soon as I get that in I'll let everyone know how it is. They also told me they have a R33 block,
Crank, etc all togeather not stripped yet that they are looking to get rid of. He's sending me pictures and I'll be putting it in the forum if it's a good enough deal I may grab it.

P.S. to a previous post I have a Viper 350 already waiting to go in and brand new top, headliner, rear window and cables
after everything else is set and the car is moving.

Thanks again guys for all the comments and support need any help or info let me know

Best of luck with the stock downpipe issues, this is partially why I went with a big single (I would be lying if I said more power didn't have anything to do with it). You could try and get ahold of a McKinney downpipe, I hear they work well.

Nice choice with the Syko kit, I have that on my RB25. how much clearance do you have from your swaybar to the front of the oil pan (if you are running a RB25 pan).

Also, what are you doing for fans? If you are going Flex-a-lite pullers, you'll have to notch your rad support. I ran puller for a while but switched to pusher when I went with a bigger radiator. Works just as good.

I'm using the RB26 oil pan I'll get some pics of the clearance.

I upgraded my radiator to a S14 Mishimoto so There is really no room at all
so as of right now 2 pushers, if we can we may try and fit one push one pull.
You lose 20% with pushers but you can only do so much with a motor this
size with the flip light front end. I was going aftermarket radiator anyways
and the s13, s14 and r32 were very small in difference as far as size goes
(from mishimoto atleast) so I grabbed the S14, I have to say everything I
got from them was great, but quality on the oil cooler kit was not so good
(damaged threads in the block, spray can silver coming off on my hands
from the cooler lines, block's unique step design for mounting the lines caused
a very small choice for filter sizes, have to use a smaller oil filter because of it)

I was cut off by a short bus coming the oposite way when it was raining and
hit it like a brick wall.

Love the steering wheel. Do S13's require bumper support cutting to fit front mounts? It doesn't look like it.
