rb26 rebuilt engine with exceptional attention to detail


I've had my r33 rb26 engine totally rebuilt including head.

Unlike many rebuilds, nothing has remained untouched and all screws, metal parts, springs have been cleaned, polished, electrocoated.

Some components have been sandblasted and painted or powder coated.

All machining work performed by orger who worked on the r32s that ran in the v8 championships.

New end spring plastic brackets were machined for throttle bodies.

The motor has not been started and sits in a RWD 300zx.

The project has blown out and while in no rush, I'm considering selling and SEEKING EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST.

Engine owes me over 30k, so will say asking for 30 and open to reasonable offers.

Located near chadstone in VIC.

Please no low ballers as you will be ignored :-(

  • Hi guys, yeah selling anything is an undesirable experience these days.

    Reasonable offers are within reach of asking price.

    Prior to starting this build thought long and hard as knew it would be expensive, but as most have experienced it somehow always blows out.

    I also looked high and low on here and the web for 12+ months so know that what i have is special and wont be replaceable if i sell this so in no rush.

    Motor and parts are capable of big power but i went for injectors that would supply more than enough initial power. 

    If you look up my turbo setup on youtube its very impressive on an rb26.

    So while listed for sale as many before me will attest to, not overly excited about selling it, but will if price is right.

  • Currently not listed anywhere else nor have I been pushing to sell it. That said open to reasonable offers.

    Not interested in splitting up motor, but will consider selling motor without hotside or clutch..

    I've seen a lot of builds and only 1 other motor was to this standard.

    Not only is this built for power but every single piece has been cleaned, polished or re-coated making it look new again.

  • Hi, the motor has not been started as still needs to be wired up and needs a custom sump for its RWD application.

    Its sitting in a z31, so would be much cheaper and faster dropping this into a GTR. 

    Its capable of much more but my end goal was around 550-600kw. Current injectors will apparently give you around the 400kw mark which build will do with ease.

    There have been no shortcuts taken on this motor as there was no intention of selling it.
