Compression Test On Rb20det

Recommended Posts

Hi

Did a search just before, didn't find the exact figure I was looking for, only peoples results with compression tests.

Just wondering what the standard compression is supposed to be on a R32 RB20DET?

I want to know the readings you should get on both WOT and closed.

Also what is the lowest to expect, and whats reasonable/safe for the age of the motor, mines done about 120,XXX KM's.

Will be doing one as soon as my car arrives home early this week.

Thanks in advance,

Abu

hahahaha..

3 replies, all way off one another..

just ge the test done.

if each cylinder results are close to one another, then don't worry.

if a couple is more than like 10% lower than the rest, then worry

Hahaha yep.

I was waiting for someone to reply with a definite answer, but seems as no one knows..

I searched for a while last night through the net and on the forums, but could only manage to get the same answers as above.

Yeah I know what your saying, but I sort of wanted to know how low is too low, and whats perfect, so I can sort of work out where mine stands in that comparison.

Ah well, will do it and see what I get!

Thanks guys,

Abu

120-130psi or less n i wouldnt be happy

130-150 is good

150-170 is excellent

like others have said, worry more about variance in the cylinders rather then the figures themselves

Thanks for that little table, thats pretty much what I was after.

Major variance in cylinders would definitely call for a bit of concern.

Thanks,

Abu

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
