R32 With Rb25De

Recommended Posts

hi putting up my 32 as ive just finished building it

i got it with a turbo 25 in it off a so called "mate"

then when i did a compression test found out it had a piston with 70psi compression so the game began

decided to go a little different direction than most

also have it for sale


RB25DE series 2 with 120000ks


extractors to high flow 3inch cat to straight thru 3 inch wink.gif


NRG adjustable coilovers

adjustable castor rods


17x9.5 +18 drift teks

painted white with rainbow flec

TURBOSMART fuel pressure gauge

1 intank fuel pump with 2 external pumps and a surge tank in boot

DRIFT pod filter with hard pipe very short intake

heavy duty clutch

52mm alloy radiator

TOMEI short shift kit

HID head lights

front head lights on toggle switch

battery relocated

turbo timer

digital volt meter

hicas removed

abs removed

s14 brake master and lines

gtst turbo brakes and 5 stud all round as it was a turbo shell

CUSCO 5 point bolt in half cage

slotted front rotors

front strut brace

rb25 engine

rb25 box

bolt in cage

bucket seats

2 seater

surge tank

external fuel pumps

turbo upgrade (from when it was a turbo car)

front mount (from when it was a turbo car)

Estimated Power:

car just made 170hp atw on the dyno with a safe tune with stock exhaust tuner said it should be capable of round 200hp with rev limiter raised and larger exhaust as the stock exhaust was very restrictive it now has extractors and a straight thru 3inch system (tuner recommended 3inch as of the sizeof intake etc)

dyno printout pretty much just goes up in a straight 45 degree angle so is awesome and responsive

and the important thing -chirps into 3rd gear even when changing at about 5000rpm ;)

just some photos taken on my phone sorry for the quality

Love it... are you keeping it NA? If I was a p plater (in a non turbo p plater state) this is almost exactily what I would drive...

Will you be looking for more power and mid range torque?

Buy the way, this set up would be peeeeeeeerfect for nitrous... Single point, 75hp shot, nice and easy. Perfectly legal to have set up in your car, just cant have it hooked up on the street.

Also the greddy intake manifold has quite short runners. Maybe have a look at getting a spacer made up that bolts inbetween the head and the manifold to lengthen the runners for a little more low to midrange power.

Looking good, looking at doing similar mods to my car eventually.

XRATED he said it's for sale so he's probably keeping it NA until it says I would assume haha.

Is the car in NSW or QLD? How much are you looking at getting for it?

nar i just bought the plates ;)

did all the work on the car with a mate

got it as a 32 with a low compression engine and did the conversion and built it up

it has pretty good power the whole way thru the rev range really

we were thinking maybe a 75 shot but aswell haha

looking at around $12000 as is

cars qld rego

thanks for all the positive comments ppl :)

    • 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
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
