Rb30E In R30


Factory 5
 Share

Recommended Posts

I'm doing some checking for my bro, he is thinking of selling off the L24 and replacing it with a RB30e then turbo it. Just thought to check if anyone has done it, and what is needed. I remember skybt1 has one but he ain't one here much anymore

Ummmmm Derrrrrrr ummm ............................... you ever think of sending him an email or PM, as I'm sure he would pass on all the info after he sees the message.

When I was looking at an RB30DET >>>>> MR30Ti sedatch, my research found it was reasonably easy.

Having said that, WHY! does he want to in the first place, because you of all people know the deal with L series 6's.

this is your lucky day..

motor does drop straight in but sump does not clear mr30 crossmember enough for engineers.

you can either modify the sump for clearance or, do what i did and modify the engine mounts.

my motor sits about 10mm more forward than normal for the sump to clear.

If you arent bothering with engineers then just drop it in. I also did experiment with vl mounts and r31 mounts.

For memory one of them just dont fit nice at all but i cant remember which ones i ended up with. Might even be a mixture of the two.

Next is gearbox. I went with the mx7 out of the vl turbo. its big and long but fits.

Again the mount is not standard, just make one up or modify the r30 one.

The rest is pretty easy. Radiator is stock too.

I sent my loom and computer off to castlemain auto elecs who make up universal looms which are very easy to install.

I think that covers it. Makes a big difference if you go engineers or not coz you gotta meet all the adrs.

Cheers!

in Qld an rb30et in r30 would be a breeze to mod plate. i know 2 guys with 120y's 1 with rb20det and other vg33e both plated and fully legal and they well under 1000kgs, mate used to have a 400hp rb25 in an ae86 mod plated. Qld is alot easier i hear but...
