Max Rpm With Stock Head ?


Recommended Posts

In the head of my rb26 I have only hks cams 272 9.3 !

What is the max safe rpm that I can run it?

My block has everything to run very high rpm I think (nismo oil pump, oil return, ati race pulley etc).

I am thinking to run a T51 SPL BB or T88H-38GK that both is for 1000+ HP so I need some rpms to run it in good rpm!!

Suck it and see - keep reving it until the power drops off or it starts to vavle float either way if every thing is built correctly then you wont hurt anything.

I don't want to test it :rofl:

I would like to tell me if it is safe the head for example 9000rpm. I think that 9000rpm limit for theese turbos is good to give me a satisfactory power range, right?

I read that theese turbos starts at 5000rpm! So 5-9 will be the power range!

How long is a piece of string?

Some heads are in better condition than others, so some can take more RPM for longer than others...

Its really a question that cannot be 'answered' accurately when you want to push something. Every setup will fail at a different point to the next when your talking 10-15yr old heads

Really no point revving past 8ish? Would a T88 still make power after 8k? You'll get a better understanding once you have the turbo installed and find out when your peak power / revs are.

But to answer your question on 'safe' I wouldn't take it above 9000rpm often.

Hi mate, i've got a standard engine in my car with a race head gasket and a big turbo on my Gts-t and all the supporting mods for making bigish power but as it is standard it probably wont do much after 8000rpm without something going wrong. My turbo starts boosting at 4500 and im on the limiter at 7500 so its pretty laggy shall we say lol. If you want to run higher rpm your're going to have to fit forged internals and i lightened, balanced crank as well as solid lifters and probably some porting and polishing too. Thats what i had on my old engine and it used to rev to

10,000rpm all day long, it was much easier to make the big power with the higher rpm.

Did you even read the OP's post? How does your standard internal Rb25 have anything to do with Greeces13s built 26?

A decent set of valve springs and retainers are a wise investment on any big power engine regardless of revs.

"If you want to run higher rpm your're going to have to fit forged internals and i lightened, balanced crank as well as solid lifters and probably some porting and polishing too"

The RB26 has solid lifters as standard, agree with zebra on this one - you havent helped much.

To the OP - I would go to your engine builder/tuner to work this out. As its already been said there is no magic number based on a few lines about your car as to it potential.....

I could tell you it will rev to 9,456 rpm but what difference would that make if I havent seen it?.... Get my point?

    • Hello again, I have a 1991 r32 gtr that I’ve modified and dynod. The power it gave me was a bit disappointing with 533 wheel horsepower and 444nm torque on a dyno jet dyno. On a heavier dyno it would read to about 433 wheel horsepower. I say disappointing because it currently has : CP oversized 87mm pistons Eagle H beam rods Extended crank with the nitto collar  stock oil pump (nitto on the way) stock sump (leask sump on the way) Garret G35-900 single turbo  ^ With 26psi of boost (1.6 bar) 6boost v band manifold  turbosmart 60mm external wastegate Brian crower 264 cams tomei gaskets all around arp head studs  dual wallbro fuel pumps dw 1050cc injectors greddy radiator metal Intercooler pipes nismo thermostat  offbrand fuel regulator (tomei regulator on the way) ngk 7’s spark plugs (tuner refused to tune with 8’s for my car) Running on a motec m800  I know that running on e85 and opening the rpm to around 8500 instead of my current 7200 will also boost my power yet will it increase a lot or just slight because people like cardoGTR and andrew Hawkin from motive were all running around 600 wheel horsepower on the same setup as mine. Any feedback on what I’m missing?   thanks
    • At the moment still 8mm. 
    • I see what you mean !! 👍 so I drive with E85 AND E100 my cylinder head and full supertech with 270° camshaft and 10.25 lift this weekend I spoke with my mapper and he told me 10 ratio would be even better so I went to set up a setup with : 3.2l crankshaft from expensive spool import with a stroke of 91mm Nitto or IRP connecting rods length 152.5 mm and piston irp ratio of 10 after having the information near spool import the setup did not work because of the crankshaft which is 91 mm  therefore the assembly mounted in the engine block will come out 1mm high above the cylinder head gasket surface so I have to review the construction of the lower engine low IRP is Italian I am French I wanted to limit the costs because as they are in Europe I do not have customs fees to pay 🤷‍♀️
    • Update. Returned yesterday after a two-day venture driving it from Toowoomba, QLD to VIC.  Some bigger shots. However, this was a couple of hours into the rive at a driver reviver stop so you'll need to excuse the bugs across the front and the water from the storm we just escaped.  Looks like at some points both side windows had wind guards and were removed but left behind some kind of silicone or something (?). Any tips on how to remove this stuff appreciated. Noticed the handle for the hood release kind of just fell from its position with nothing fixing it in place to the mount. Looks like two bolts go there. Again, any advice is appreciated. The driver's seat is a Recaro seat in a fixed position (not mounted using the rails, which were in the boot). So the trip one was...more painful than necessary. I'm a bigger guy, so the seat belt was basically tight.  It also has a rip in the seat side closest to the drivers door.  Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.   Now I'm trying to navigate getting the roadworthy and registration here in VIC. Hope it will go well but I know the hood release will need to be fixed for sure.  
    • Your new rig ticks that box 😁 Just let me prep it first    180sx looks weird without it's stickers
