S14 With Neo Rb25 Drift Car.

Recommended Posts

yeah more like grenaded haha.

ad to say that the beams motor didnt get anywhere near pulling a power run let alone cracking gate.

Was on dyno for an hour or so going through basic fuel map tuning at light load under 3500rpm when it came to a grinding halt. Made a really bad noise and completely seized the motor.

Bit of a sad result after all the time and effort. Got sold a dud engine and beginning to think that rod bolts were loose perhaps.

Massive thanks to the guys at Garage 7 for their help, patience and support. Gets hoping i can get a motor sorted soon.

Did it have the factory seal of approval or was it a "built" motor? I've seen and heard so many rebuilt motors go pop due to the guy only building 1 a year and doing something wrong. Something to be said for stock bottom ends, the guy at the factory did a shit tonne of them.

at first i thought it was a loose rod bolt... but the big end was still firmly on the crank and the bearings and crank are still good. it looks like a total rod failure. Motor still had OEM sealant on sump.

Now on the hunt for a new motor and some stronger rods which i'll put in. not sure if i want to go down the path of forged pistons however

sadly no. cause that would have topped it!

so brief update.. stripped new motor down, Got some spool conrods ready to go in once i get some new ACL bearings for it (wanted OEM but too hard to get) weighing up if i should change pistons to some 2jzgte ones or retain the OEM pistons. 2j pistons fit right in, same pin height and ring land set up, they even take the same rings. however they need machining of the skirts to clear oil squirters and also to recess the valves. Once done and fitted gives around 9.8:1 CR.

    • Why are you still trying to buy a crappy jap brand exhaust? go to your local exhaust shop and get a heaps better one made that will fit under the body 100x better
    • I’m very happy with my recent purchase of the Fuga but resisting the conversion to English of the navigation system. I’ve used Google translator to get around the system to date but I must have pressed something, now wondering if any Fuga owners (mine is 2011) know how to get out of this ‘dual’ or ‘panel’ screen mode. It’s driving me crazy 
    • hello! i am looking into upgrading the cams on my rb26 in the future, and wanted to start to understand what goes into this. i did a forum search and nothing obvious came up, so forgive me if this is already discussed somewhere. currently the engine is stock, save for (pertinent to this discussion): adjustable cam pulleys beefed up timing belt haltec ecu, not yet installed yet oil baffle plates i am will be converting to a single turbo set up, and that turbo's peak output is reached at somewhere between 5k and 5.5k rpm. this would be for street use. from what i understand, i should be looking at cams degreed at 272°. does that sound like it makes sense? there are step 1 and step 2 variants of these cams. i am not sure what the difference is in the to variants, so if anyone can chime in on this it would be great. i am assuming i would need to upgrade my valve springs as well. other than a tune, what would go into a camshaft upgrade? if i want to go with a v-cam upgrade much later, how does that affect i am doing now? i understand that it's totally possible that i completely missed something major here, but that's why i am posting this: i am here to learn. cheers!
    • I don't know whether you've made a decision yet or not. But left to me, I'll choose RAV4 over skyline everytime. Apart from the fact that RAV4 is a new product, skyline is an old product that it's almost out of vogue. It has some issues and require high maintenance. 
    • Ill see how this adaptor goes first. But thanks for the offer.
