Ben's R32 Gtst Build

Recommended Posts

In the 34 I'm sure I grabbed a sock off my shelf that was a spare from a new pump some other time. 

Did not modify cradle, but did remove the fuel damper.

I ran last weekend at the Symmons Plains 60th annaverary meet. Unfortunately after a good run the engine decided to throw a rod.  I've got the engine out but havn't pulled the sump off yet, I suspect a rod bolt has failed as it had oil pressure when it failed.

Time to build the 2.2

It was honestly an extremely uneventful failure in the video, was waiting for a loud bang but it just sort of knocked for a second then died. What was the details on the bottom end?

Yeah it was pretty uneventful from the inside.  I assumed i'd melted a piston, but my mates informed me when I got towed back in that there was a loud bang and there was bits all over the track.

The bottom end is stock crank and rods, arp rod bolts and ross pistons.  I've been using those rods since 2011, so they have done alot of work and I think i put the rod bolts in around 2012.

Well at least you have a crank case breather now, we all know RBs love to pressurise the crank case and not allowing oil to drain effectively back into the sump.

Time for a 3.2L 1000hp motor?

I finally got round the pulling the engine down.  The head had barely been marked, so that's a win.

 

The bottom end is quire the mess though.  Pretty sure I found that the broken rod bolt, looks like a clean brake compared to the rest of the mangled mess

I was going to go down that path, even have a inlet gasket to make a manifold adaptor.  But Targa rules changed again, so 26 crank and rods and a slight bore to bring to to just under 2.2l.  Swap the RB20 highflow for a Neo highflow

Cheap...$600 or something from memory.

 

2.2l will be a good thing... Compression and stroke will liven it up

can you have the head machined(skimmed) with the valves still in the motor? 

The head has to be off the engine and cams removed, but yes i've had head skimmed with the valves still in it.

Would be pretty amazing to do it with the head on the engine 👍

lol would have better luck fitting a golf ball through a garden hose, ended up striping the whole head and porting it anyway so she will be bare at the machine shop. good to know for future tho so dont have to remove the head components everytime. thanks mates
