No oil from feed


Recommended Posts

Ok so after a few months of upgrading the turbo on my RB25DET Neo, had new manifold, top mount holset hx32, custom oil feed line, return and exhaust. bla bla all the required parts, primes the turbo with new oil, removed spark and cranked engine over. No oil what so ever came out of the oil feed line, tried cranking about 4 times. Still nothing. Removed oil feed like completely from the block to check for any possible blockages and kinks. The line is good. So I left the line off the block and cranked a couple times and not even a drop of oil cane out the side of the block ! It’s been sitting in my drive and last time it was started was July, could the oil pump be seized? checked the dipstick the oil still looked quite clean (still gold tbh) and no sludge. Should I take the sump off and inspect the pickup tube ? Need advice please 

 

Rory.

Put the line in a bottle, start and run the car for all of 1 second, oil will piss out.

If you're scared of running the new turbo without a feed for a second just take it off and start it for a sec, easier than taking the sump off without removing the whole engine

Generally not, no

Ok seems a good idea, I’ll give it a shot.

thanks

    • Is there a particular model of the box that is recommended and where are you sourcing it from? This has me pretty interested as well for my 1JZ (currently with the standard A343 box). Also very interested to see how the turbolamik TCU goes. Is Tuned Performance assisting with this too? 
    • I've never used or seen that kit. project mu have a serious reputation in braking but there is a lot of information missing from that listing like type and style of dogbone, is the disc solid or full floating to the hats etc. It also mentions they run '1 synchronised pad per piston' which sounds overly complex solution to a non-problem to me. Also no information on price or availability of replacement pads or rotor rings If I was looking for something that serious I'd go AP racing or perhaps Brembo as they have plenty of users and good availability, but in any case something like Just Jap ATTKD are proven and less than half the price (assuming that listing is USD)
    • does anyone have any experience with the project mu forged sports 4-piston kit for the GTRs? it's a front brake bolt-on kit, 355mm x 32mm forged aluminum 41mm piston 4 pads / caliper from my experience with the brand in the past, they make pretty solid stuff, so i figured this would be a nice upgrade for the R33. anyone here have experience with these? the site search didn't really yield any results, just posts about brake pads, mostly. cheers!
    • I vaguely remember there was something about it when I did my plates/subframe bushes but it might have just been a forum post I read. 
    • Now installed, fun times as the GKtech manual makes no mention of modifying the subframe brackets/brace plates. Needed to lop off the hump as the GKtech subframe bushes are flat and don't have an indent. Heaps of swearing later, it's in 🥳
