Rb20det Rebuild Time


Recommended Posts

Recently parked the old girl in the shed with intentions of bringing her back to life(1989 gtst r32).

The car has been sitting in the yard at my brothers with no bonnet so the bores have gathered abit of surface rust.

I have since pulled the motor from the car and am wondering where to start and also if the block will be ok to use.I know ill need a new oil pump as i cracked it trying to remove the crank gear.

Just want to know what a standard rebuild includes

Like bearings

Rings

If the block will need to be honed/acid dipped

ETC ETC

Any help will be result in a feeling of inner happyness :/:P .......(results may vary)

for the price of a standard rebuild you could almost get a RB25 in there

what a useless answer seriously..

pretty much what you said mate,its ya gaskets and oil pump that are the killer for these engines $$$$

drop ya head of and block and a machine shop get hear recoed and bores cleaned up they then can tell you wether need oversize rings and what not.

also water pump, timing belt, thermostat and housing best to do everything whilst its out.

good luck with it mate, love the 20's

Not really - he asked if it was all OK to use, clearly nothing really is.

By the time you piss all the money into a RB20 like that to get it running you could have a RB25 in, and running.

How is that not the better solution and wiser spending of the money - i will never know.

Unless he goes the $500 wrecker motor option (which is the only other thing i would suggest), rebuilding the RB20 is the very much silly avenue.

Perhaps the OP does not realise the costs involved, work, cost of RB25s and so on
