C33 Laurel Race Use Only Rb25de+tt On New Trailer

Recommended Posts

I imported this from japan thru a wrecker, it was a drivable car, they had to remove the motor and trans to allow importation. was rb20e and auto.

chassi has done 92000kms, i have had it dynoed twice since completing it and have used it at one practice day, getting over the whole car thing.

The rb25de i sourced was fitted to a torana and come with bellhousing to suit toyota and the haltech - that was still in box. I fitted twin turbos, manifolds and all supporting oil water lines from r32 gtr which had had r33 turbos fitted, i modded the manifolds to allow fitment to rb25 head. I fitted rb26 injectors and moddified in let plenum to forward facing item, also utilising velocity stacks on runners. It has toyota w58 box with custom 1 piece tail shaft. Welded diff. I had issues with valve float on dyno first time round, so i sourced a full set of rb26 valve springs from performance springs( which are 30% heavy seat pressure that standard rb26) and fitted these, fixed problem. I also had clutch slipping issues with brass button clutch that came with motor so this has just been replaced with extreme motorsport item, rated to 300rwkw. short description, will list all items fitted. power = 228rwkr@14psi. If any issues arise with rb25 short block it is very simple to add rb30 under head and associated hardware to make a rb30dett. This was my long term plan.

The body of laurel is overall good, no rust. The roof has some scraps and small dent on left side due to damage done while being loaded into container. small dent in boot caused by me rolling it into work bench, front bar is off another car and has been glassed up on inside. it is a dark green colour and car is grey in colour- see picture

Trailer: brand new trailer, built march. 11 months rego. solid axels to allow low as possible deck height, 2400mm long aluminium ramps covered in ply - low with long ramps allows easy loading of low vehicles. Hydraulic over rider brakes, jocky wheel, rear LED lights, s13 mag wheels with good tread. will come with 2 x 2ton ratchet tie downs.

    • Can't forget them. Have spent the better part of the last 2 years in Bunbury. Any longer and I would have to get one of each.
    • Hit it hard last night, was in the shed till 2:30am. Had to get everything ready to try fit engine today as neighbour is going away tomorrow. This happenned today      Was going smoothly, till it wasn't. Had to lower the sway bar, remove engine mounts to get the engine to its spot and then refit everything. Head drain also created some clearance issues but got there in the end. Some idiot put the drain return on the sump virtually where the engine mount is. Hose fits on but is less than ideal, going to have to revisit it and fit a 90° fitting. Had some hiccups last night too with getting the flywheel and gearbox on. Firstly forgot the sandwich plate, so had to remove clutch and flywheel again. Then gearbox went on smoothly but then realised new block has an alignment dowel in the same spot as gearbox. GB off again to remove said dowel. Cnut. Anyway, it's in now. AC and PS pumps refitted, tail shaft bolted up as well. Left to do is reconnect all harnesses and plugs. Looks like a big mess ATM. Fit dump pipe, radiator, shifter, intake piping and associated bits, air box fill, afluids and hopefully fire it up. Looks like couriers please has lost my break in oil again. Useless pricks. Looks like I'll just get whatever mineral oil is on special at super shit auto. Hopefully it will actually run after all this or I'm going to burn it, lol.
    • The genuine ones are a minimum of $95 each on amayama. Jesse Streeter just quoted me $190 each. I can get a set of 6 MSD for $470 on ebay.
    • You forgot jet ski's and neck tatts.
    • New Monroe OESpectrum shocks for the Honda have been ordered, the car actually handles well with the OEM shocks, but from pulling the wheels off for a good inspection of the brakes and bushings, the only issue I saw was that it still has the original shocks, and with 160k km on them they are well past their use by date Also, in other "kids these days" news, the airbox resonator is "in the bin", a little more induction noise down low free reving, but it sounds really good (growly) over 4k RPM on the road, worth while silly mod for 10 minutes of work and zero dollars Also the K&N filter for the OEM airbox arrived, whilst I didn't get it for performance, as it probably doesn't give any, it's more to save a few bucks replacing OEM filters every service, 3 filter changes and it has paid for itself I also picked up another 5 litres of HPR5 for another oil filter and some more engine flush, I'll give the last HPR5 and filter change 1k km to do it's thing then flush it all out again and stick the new stuff in, anal, but I feel it's always worth the effort when I get a "new old" car to really clean out its guts, and as the K series engines have a few internal mesh filter screens for the V-Tec thingie, as well as the usual one on the oil intake tube, it's preventative maintenance to keep the oily bits happy when I'm wringing it's neck The Bogan Cruise Ship might even come out from undercover this weekend for a cruise, weather permitting of course
