rb25DE NEO with DET NEO pistons? Conversion build.


Recommended Posts

I did plan to measure the combustion chamber on the de neo head but simply forgot, i would expect them to cc the same as det neo.

I used the runners from det neo with a plazmaman intake, only because i already had it setup on a built motor in the car previously

@NEO25T did a CNC machine do that?

Nah this was full budget this time round i just opened them up with die grinder, no machining done at all. I just cleaned and measured everything, light hone on the block, cleaned everything again, and again, slapped in some valve stem seals and threw it together.

@NEO25T wow bro that is really beautiful,  so did a cnc machine "port" your head to the bigger DET holes? what coil packs are you running? is that timing belt cover from a series 2, because it looks like the steel ones and not the plastic NEO ones? and LASTLY, for you catch can, what the fittings you used to fit in the standard holes in the valve covers? i know its AN but can you explain how you made it work, i would like to do the same as well

Nah it was all done by hand with die grinder, just traced the gasket. I didnt take many pics but started by knife edging the divider then slightly open the bowls to same size as the seats, smoothed the radius of the short turn and slightly opened the ports to same size as det head then just blended it out to the marks from the gasket, i dont think id like to see any flow bench results lol.

Those are r35gtr coils from prp.

Yeah its just a cover from a hydro 25 as i dont like the look of the neo ones, rb20 cam covers on it too.

I did weld fittings in the cam covers on the other motor but these ones um i forget.....

I think those are the standard nissan ones i cut and welded with -12 fittings, you can get them push in to an but the ones i seen were straight so you had to put a 90 degree hose fitting and they stuck up and i didn't like how it looked, ill take a pic if i remember in the next day or 2

Just an update for future readers and any one else who may be able to learn from this or wanna do the same.... it works, i put manely h beams and cp turbo neo pistons with acl bearings with no problems. The head cc/size is the same. It is possible to forge a de with det parts

Hey all I’m just in the process of building another rb25de neo engine for my car as my current engine didn’t seem to want to make more than 300rwkw but made good midrange 250 at 4000rpm. I’m wondering if u have a before and after Dyno sheet I’m looking to do a freedy intake polished ports , h beam rods, port and polish head and polished chambers, det cams, ARP studs and aim for 370 to 400 I may have to do pistons but can’t find info on max power from a stock piston motor

Why though? Get a different turbo

Well, the DE ports are small, so they will become a restriction on max power long before they would on a DET head. It's not surprising that you start to hit a wall.

Your options are to use a DET head or spend some time/money in digging the extra metal out of the ports. I know which would be easier!

Freddy intake is neither here nor there as far as power is concerned. You will make the power just as easily with a stock plenum. So if you're planning to change it for power reasons, spend the money elsewhere.

    • The price of gtrs has just gone completely stupid. Are they worth it? Hell no. Bout 7-8 years ago R34s went down to $38k, r32s on this site could be had for $9k-$12k and people were shit talking them by saying they wouldn’t tough one at those prices coz of the work needed  I had a r33 gtr. it was good value for money at the time  if I had $200- $400k to spend on a car, I sure as shit would not be buying a gtr 
    • Don't know about this one. Though I spent a lot of time looking at cars that I couldn't buy. This worked for me:   1) Make account on carsales 2) Search for the car you are after, eg. R34 GTRs 3) Save the search and tick the box for notifications 4) Receive email / notification every time a car is listed 5) Save the car by clicking the heart button 6) Go through your saved cars periodically and see which ones stay listed for ages, which ones go down in price and which ones are gone in no time   I haven't looked at GTRs, but I noticed a good bargain won't last a week, sometimes not even a weekend. You won't see those if you only search occasionally. The ones that ask for too much don't sell and stick around forever.
    • IMO anything less than this isn't worth it
    • Contact East Coast Customs they have been working on them for a while and know their way around them https://www.facebook.com/eccustoms
    • The car has been around for awhile now and is popular. So a good portion of mechanics have probably worked on them.  I just did a google search of "Brisbane import mechanic" a few popped up
