Yay updates. Wish I had some updates >.<

I thought Jim Berry was retiring back when I bought my clutch 4 years ago? Hahaha.....

Giving away any plans on the engine build? Should probably keep the stock bottom end and we can battle it out for fastest stock bottom end, Jim Berry clutched, R34 GTT with a sick kunt driving it :4_joy::4_joy:

Lol pull your finger out then!

He did retire, but still looks after existing clients and picks and chooses work to keep himself amused. I probably could have got a few more years out of the clutch but might as well make it fresh while its out.

Lol you can have that award all to yourself. The new engine will be far from stock... But look stock from a far ;)

Solid centre, that's why you kept blowing boxes!

Lol there is always one that has to start this argument :laugh:

I actually broke 2 boxes with the sprung centre and the recent failure was due to a selector issue which destroyed 4th and 5th gears.

Did you test it before you pulled it? What was it at

Towards the end i was just doing cold comp tests to make sure it was even across the 6 cylinders... So not a proper indication!

It was still fairly even but was in the 90s on cold tests which was another 10psi down through the year...

Got good news from Jim Berry last night... Clutch is in good nick!

The pads started at 8.05mm and after 4 years of abuse they are still only down to 7.95mm like new lol

The only damage on the clutch is from the incompetent idiot mechanic that dropped it at a certain workshop and then covered it up so i would never know, when i removed the box about a year later i was shocked! This is why i do most of my own mechanical these days! Hard to find reliable workshops!

I ground back the damage and cleaned it up and it still functional but one of the fingers was slightly bent so this has been repaired! I could get a whole new plate made but there is no need! Should be good for another few years at least!

So clean, machine and good to go again!

Ditto and a half!

I should rig up an alignment setup in the garage.

Actually alignments is one of the few things i do trust shops for as i get mine done at Road2Race Chassis Tuning in West Gosford.

Peter is a wealth of knowledge and extremely passionate when it comes to anything performance related!

He is very much like Jez in terms of advice, its no bull straight up honesty :D

    • looking good mate keep up the good work i like following this thread.  
    • 20220120_204714.mp4     Hey guys, passenger door jammed shut on me, I managed to get the door card off in one piece and have a look in there but can't seem to find the problem. Ive tried using combos of using the key and holding the interior lock open, using both door handles and the central lock button. Ive tried pushing and pulling the door latch and lock rods manually The lock mechanism seems to turn and push the lever when I turn the key and everything looks to be in place. Cant for the life of me find the problem. Any help would be appreciated. If there is a manual way to open the door I haven't found it. Im guessing something inside the latch mechanism has gone bad but how can you get it out with the door jammed shut? 
    • There are literally dozens of aftermarket throttlebodies in DCOE carby format. The RB26 ITBs are so very very close to the DCOE bolt pattern that it is difficult to believe that Nissan came that close and didn't actually just use the DCOE pattern. Then, you can look at just about any EFI motorbike from Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, etc that used single throttles, in whatever size floats your boat. 45mm? 48mm? Larger? They're all out there. Just build manifold and plenum and linkages to suit. As for compression and cams - the larger the cam duration, the more compression you can run. Just sayin'. And as for cost for bottom end.....8500 rpm is well within the limits of the stock bottom end. Especially NA. It won't cost much to make it good for >9000. Just need some light pistons and some moderately strong rods and bolts. On the subject of VCT.....all RB25s have it (except for the very first ones in the R32). The vanilla 25s in the R33 era cars were all VCT. There's almost no difference in the VCT between vanilla and Neo engines. The difference between Neos and vanilla 25s is that the Neos have solid lifters, a different included angle in the valves with a shallow combustion chamber. And in the NAs.....not particularly good flowing ports. I would not write off the power potential of an L series vs an RB25DE though, neo or not. 2.8L & 3L (and larger) L series builds, even running Mikunis, have made really large power. There is nothing wrong with the single cam engines. The twin cams are not inherently a massive leap in power potential.
