R32 Gt-R Intake Manifold Removal

Recommended Posts

Here's where i'm at.

i have a coolant leak from one or both of the hoses under the intake manifold towards the back of the engine (nearer the driver). i want to take the intake manifold off and replace every hose and clamp underneath it and fill it with genuine nissan coolant to avoid any leaks or corrosion (nescessary???)

all nuts are off the maniifold and fuel lines under the manifold are still fixed to the manifold but the hoses either end are pulled off.

i've pulled the hoses to the brake and clutch boosters off so it's just the two steel pipes stickking up through the manifold at the moment.

my questions, is it easier to remove the hoses from the underside of the intake manifold and unbolt the iac valve housing to free up the manifold?

or leave all iac valve components attatched to the manifold and remove the intake manifold with the iac valve still attatched? is that possible?

anyone with experience removing the rb26 intake manifold, i need help! any info would be great on this removal. i'm pretty close as it is but the manifold isn't free yet.

you have to remove the iac valve its only 4 bolts and easy to access

thanks heaps. i'll have a look tomorrow as i'm on annual leave at the moment. it's my daily driver so i have to do it before i go back to work on the 9th i think it is...

    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
