    It's pretty easy really - remove engine, dismantle everything, measure / test everything, repair or replace everything that needs it, put it back together (assembly is a reverse of the disassembly process), and put back in the car. Seriously, as Callan said, if you need a guide you should consider if this is a job for you. Have you read the Nissan engine manual? There is a PDF version floating around the internet, which covers most of what you'd need to know.
  2. He means that the RB30 block is taller than the RB25 block - around 30 - 35mm from memory. You need to lower the engine (by cutting or getting smaller engine mounts, allow it to sit closer to the bonnet (and probably remove the strut brace if you have one), or a combination of the 2. We've done it with a track car, and it is fantastic. The extra ltorque low down is a real bonus. You haven't mentioned what's been done to your RB25, but you would probably need a tuneable ECU to get the most out of an RB25/30. Cost - how long is a piece of string. It will depend on what else you do at the same tiem - rebuild the RB30 bottom end, provide for better oil control, rebuild the head, modify the head to enable VCT, upgrade the ECU, upgrade the turbo, upgrade the fuel system. Pick a number that you want to spend & triple it.
  3. I can't remember where I got those from, but used them to rewire the fuel pump in my R33 GTST track car. I think pin 2 is 12V through the ignition switch - so live when the key is on or start - and the ECU switches pin 1 to earth to run the pump. A couple of minutes with a test light would confirm this.

    I believe that the NT01 is pretty much the same as an R888, with a different tread pattern. The current Toyo is an R888R, which I think is slightly different again from the R888. We've got NT01's on the rear of our track car, and R888R's on the front. Changing the fronts from NT01's to R888R's seemed to give an improvement in front end grip, but it's hrd to say for sure geiven the time between outings. Will be putting R888R's on the back when the NT01's are dead, and I'm thinking that will make a bigger difference than the fronts as rear end grip is always an issue.

  6. Do that, but you've used the free one. I charge for any further - maybe try the internet😉
  7. It's an accelerator, and you use it to accelerate. I think excellerator / excellerated has something to do with spreadsheets, or with being excellent.
  8. Is this legal?
  9. Unplug the single wire connector, and see if the gauge stops working...

    RB30 doesn't have a housing - there is just a hollow stud screwed into the block, and the filter spins onto that. The o-ring on the filter seals against the block (which is where your current housing seals now). If you wanted to fit an external oil cooler, you could remove the housing, install an RB30 stud, fit a sandwich plate over the stud, then run lines to the cooler. You can put the oil pressure sensor in the sandwich plate. We ran our track car like this for a while. You can buy the RB30 stud (actually, for some strange reason you have to buy 2) from Nissan spare parts. Here is a link to one at Kudos - RB30 oil filter stud
  11. This was the issue when mine was filling the catch can after a few hot laps.
