Neo Max Rpm?

Recommended Posts

Fully rebuilt/balanced bottom end

Head with tomei 260 cams

heavy duty valve springs/retainers

k-line valve guides

port and polish

bolted down with head studs

With the standard solid lifters, would it be safe to set rev limit to 9000rpm? maybe even 9500? Only drag/street? what to raise rpm to take full advantage of a to4z :)

Adriano... He says it's fully rebuilt and balanced.

I rev mine with a standard bottom end, but with Tomei Poncams to 7800.

it's still making good power there and only just starting to taper off there.

keep reving it until it starts to nose over and see how you go.

Surely you would give it to your tuner and let him play with the max RPM while he's tuning it?  If you're chasing max RPM then max HP should be the limiting factor.  Let your tuner decide when upping the RPM no longer has any benefit.

Shim over bucket. Don't even think** that it is "as good as" an RB26 from that point of view. Rev it too fast and you stand a very good chance of spitting shims and saying goodbye to some $$.

I would suggest not much more than 8500 rpm unless sworn to and guaranteed by a person who has experience setting up Neo heads with similar cams and springs and knows what they will and won't do.

No. Do not "let the tuner play with it". Tuners and engine builders and not always the same thing. Some tuners know f**k all about the metal bits. Ask the guy who knows about the metal bits.


** That's an instruction, not my opinion.

You will find that spinning past 8k starts to get pointless as you can't get into gears and spit power steering belt - unless you've got an auto or a sequential.

But yeah, I've spun mine to 9k rpm just to hear what it sounds like, and each time it kisses the limiter at 9.2k it shoots off a powersteering belt

Yet to go on the dyno, but with timing figures at 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 11, 11, 12, 12, 13, 13 it's more than safe.

    • Is there a particular model of the box that is recommended and where are you sourcing it from? This has me pretty interested as well for my 1JZ (currently with the standard A343 box). Also very interested to see how the turbolamik TCU goes. Is Tuned Performance assisting with this too? 
    • I've never used or seen that kit. project mu have a serious reputation in braking but there is a lot of information missing from that listing like type and style of dogbone, is the disc solid or full floating to the hats etc. It also mentions they run '1 synchronised pad per piston' which sounds overly complex solution to a non-problem to me. Also no information on price or availability of replacement pads or rotor rings If I was looking for something that serious I'd go AP racing or perhaps Brembo as they have plenty of users and good availability, but in any case something like Just Jap ATTKD are proven and less than half the price (assuming that listing is USD)
    • does anyone have any experience with the project mu forged sports 4-piston kit for the GTRs? it's a front brake bolt-on kit, 355mm x 32mm forged aluminum 41mm piston 4 pads / caliper from my experience with the brand in the past, they make pretty solid stuff, so i figured this would be a nice upgrade for the R33. anyone here have experience with these? the site search didn't really yield any results, just posts about brake pads, mostly. cheers!
    • I vaguely remember there was something about it when I did my plates/subframe bushes but it might have just been a forum post I read. 
    • Now installed, fun times as the GKtech manual makes no mention of modifying the subframe brackets/brace plates. Needed to lop off the hump as the GKtech subframe bushes are flat and don't have an indent. Heaps of swearing later, it's in 🥳
