  1. RB25 Alternator sold. Have a Cometic 1.3 MLS Head Gasket for RB25. This came in my spool kit but I ended up going a Nitto gasket. New sealed $150 (priced to sell)
  2. Bottom end is together. High comp pistons sit above the deck so gonna have to exchange the head gasket for a thicker one. DOH! ARP crank bolt is walkabout, so need to see if it actually turned up with the rest of the stuff. Head will be modified to clear the cams next week; and the week after the long motor should be assembled and ready for block to be painted; final clean, and assembly.
  3. Crank balanced and grub screwed. Hoping the bottom end is together this week. New GTR throttles arriving tomorrow. Most of the big purchases are done now. Just a new tail shaft yoke for the 25 box and some oil lines left really. Worked out if I spend every second weekend from when the engine gets back (ideally by mid Nov at latest) I will have it running and driving ~Aus Day in Jan. Fingers crossed.
  4. Engine progress is slow... Waiting on the crank to be balanced then the bottom end can be assembled. Valve seats are cut (verified myself today) Cams ended up hitting the head so needs some more machining (so much for drop ins). Some small tidying up on the oil drain castings at the back of the head, skim the head then final assembly. I plan to drop the motor back in the engine bay over xmas holidays. Hope to have it running by Aus day long weekend.
  5. RB Alternators. RB20DET alternator. Purchased new 15k ago. Might condition. $100ono RB25DET alternator. Came off the running RB25DET I purchased. Looks like a second hand wrecker alternator. $50. Went LS1 alternator so surplus to needs. Turbosmart Fuel pressure regulator. FPR800. Upgraded to FPR1200 so surplus to needs. $100
  6. Still no engine. Bottom end is almost assembled I'm told. Head is back from being ported, has had the valve seats cut for 1mm oversize valves. Just needs some cleanup of the oil drains and a skim. Waiting on a new set of genuine lifters from Nissan, drug money TBH but I'm in too deep now anyway. Going LS1 alternator whilst I'm shopping for bits to bolt back on the long motor and if the tax man is good to me a new set of RB26 throttle bodies from Nissan for the 26 intake I have going on. Fingers crossed I make 2019 for a run in tune at the very least.
  7. Purchased the engine second hand. Sighted running, but since I didn't know the history I've rebuilt it. Hence my own apprehension to reuse too.
  8. Engine builder doesn't want to use them.
  9. Looking for some examples of people with aftermarket cams and new lifters. Genuine lifters are drug money and there are some aftermarket options. But unsure if they will do the job as well as genuine. Cams are 268 camtech. Not looking at solid conversion as the rest of the valve train is sorted.
  10. Visited my engine builder on the weekend to finalise the valve train specs. Discussed the head studs and head gasket I supplied and decided to go ARP2000 series studs and use a different thicknesses gasket. Have a for sale thread up if anyone is interested. There's also a new GReddy oil pump for sale that I've had for a year or two sitting in a box. Went Nitto oil pump instead.
  11. Selling ARP head studs for RB20/25. MLS head gasket for RB25 (R33) 1.3mm Will sell the studs and the gasket separate if you don't low ball . $500 as a package. GReddy Oil Pump for all RB engines, same as what ShaneC86 runs on his 700hp RB30. These go for $800 second hand. Has a wider set of sintered steel gears and larger oil return compared to Nissan/N1 pumps. Requires crank collar if you are not using late RB26 cranks. Changed my mind and went Nitto Pump instead $750 All parts are new. Pickup western suburbs of Melbourne or postage at buyers expense.
