Another Rb20 Engine Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am about to start a rb20det stroker project and i just cant seem to find what im looking for.

Heres a quick run down of what i have.

RB20det- full engine just very worn out and smokie( but sorta still runs)

RB25det- crank, rods and pistons (A1 condition)

Rb25 head (complete) A1 condition..

i've read a lot of posts about people using RB25 Crank, rods and I think 4agze pistons to make an RB21 or RB23 im guessing, i cant exactly remember what combination that makes.

My questions are has anyone ever gone all out using The full bottom end from an Rb25? and does that even work or be compatible? an other idea i had was using the rb25 crank rods and Standard RB20 pistion.

second question. i was also thinking of using the rb 25 head mainly because of the variable cam timing. is it easy to adapt? apart from what i can see an extra oil port near the front of the head.

i was just thinking of doing an rb25 conversion to my R32 but i cant let all these parts go to wast lol and i love engine project.

Third and final question.would anyone have a copy of a map i could use for this engine so once i do get it all complete, she wont run lean and melt.

    • Been slowly chipping away at it when I've got time. Tried to get the box in with the converter but worked out that the flexplate isn't the correct thickness and the converter pulls out off the pump too much (about 8mm). The flexplate for some reason was setup to use the secondary holes on the converter which had a press in nut to bolt to. I worked with Adamat performance the guys who manufacture the kits and they revised the design and made it suit the factory converter holes and milled up a new one for me and is currently on its way over. Can see the differences between the two compared to the orignal design which is in the post above. Once that's here the box can go in for good. I dummy'd it back up to get tailshaft length and is currently with Hardy Spicer to sort that out. Unfortunately won't get it back until late Jan Have been working in the boot lately getting it all a bit nicer and useable. Painted it with sound deadener and cut out a new boot floor from 18mm MDF so I can put a pram or my tool bag in the back. Have marine carpet coming to stick onto that and then also cut a piece to cover the battery. Once ive stuck the carpet in and all cleaned up ill pop the fuel system back in. Need to order 2 new Walbro 525s to replace the 3x 460s. Should be enough fuel for the new setup and run a bit cooler as well having more volume in the surge tank and less heat.  Have also ordered some sound deadener to put under the carpet. That should be here next week and I'll start putting it down on the floor, doors and roof. Hoping all this effort will make it a nice streeter with ability to daily if I want to.
