Hey everyone, am nearing completion of my RB25/30 build, but I seem to be stuck on setting up the timing.

 

I have drilled and tapped the block above the water pump for the timing belt tensioner, am using a RB25 idler below the water pump, crank is at TDC, but am unsure on where my cams are supposed to be at. I also have adjustable cam gears to go onto the cams, once the motor in full is set to TDC correctly. To make it easier, the block is a standard A6 VL N/A block, and the head is standard aswell, valves, cams, with the exception of the VVL being blocked off in the head.

 

If someone could help me out with this it'd be muchly appreciated. Have tried searching in this thread alone and also the whole of SAU, but cant find a definite answer. With 359 pages worth of thread here, I tried looking, but it seems a lot of people like to talk shit in here too which makes it all that much harder..

Install the adjustable cam gears straight off and use the markers as per Ben's comment.  Then pay someone competent to degree your cams.  Hint: this is far easier and less time consuming to do on the bench/engine stand.

Hey team. 

Massive thanks for this thread. It's amazeballs. 

Just wondering if a factory 25DE ecu could be used to get a 30DET running. Just temporarily so I can check everything for leaks and I'm eating myself noises before it goes for dyno tune.

Not sure what ecu I'm going to use yet will speak to the tuner before to see what brands they are familiar with. 

 

Once again cheers guys

I would advise against. I trailered my car to the tuner, got him to fit the Link and do the initial run in while he was tuning it on the dyno.

Assume you have a R33? If so, then the torque of the RB30 will most def kill your box(Depends how much power you are actually shooting for).
