In search of a neo 25


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, first post here so excuse any of my forum etiquette being poor or my topic being incorrect or whathaveyou.

As the title goes, this year I finally started tearing down my 180’s engine after the driver side mount somehow intruded on my oil filters personal space and ejected it from my car.

My current position, I miraculously snapped my exhaust cam taking the head apart; and upon inspecting the bottom end the crank seems salvageable but bearings definitely gone.

At this point I would rather a stocker go in to get it moving again. I’m in search of a later Rb25det neo, also preferably around the 100k. mileage mark and not flogged like Christie mack and not my kidney. Low chances at this point I know.

This projects now on the second car, and transplant and been in the works since 2013, driven it maybe 6 of those months. Both the cause and the cure to my problems.

Shall we assume that you're in Australia?

Yeah man, ACT Australia sorry, I just blazed through the profile creation to get the post out as it was in my head.

Full details:

drove a mate home from work, started overheating which turned to clunking and screeching. Stopped and saw my trail of oil down the highway. 
engine is now apart out of the car, bearings are no good, piston 2’s lobe is a bit scratched up but not horribly. Whether or not it’s unfixable is yet tbc.

ideally I’d prefer to start with a fresh engine, and use what I have as a spare, or build one pull the other later on. A long block and poncams isn’t out of the question as long as it’s a full long block.

also don’t need hot/cold sides as they’re of course fine and it’s plazmaman. 
 

will start a proper build thread in the coming days/weeks

cheers as well

    • Does this count as a time trial as well? I got all gold in the master super licence (1 lap time trial) and received a McLaren MP4/4 for my trouble.  If anyone else has done this, did you ride the wall right around the first long right hander at Lake Louise snow track to get gold? I couldn't do it any other way... best I could do without riding the was was within 2 tenths of the gold time.
    • I definitely get the low power, sporty car to drive to smash gears but not be doing eleventy million miles an hour! It makes all the normal drives fun!   Rev match tune sounds like the funs! I didn't know the NC had a DBW throttle!   As for me, still have the Skyline, it still has the Barra in it. It's been pushed to the side of the workshop at the moment. Pretty much waiting on me finishing the wiring, and dropping new fuel lines in. Got myself an ACDC Tig end of last year so been teaching myself TIG welding to build a few things for the Skyline. The missus wrote off her GTB liberty at the end of last year, and got it back on salvage rights stupid cheap. It's also still registered, so will mean easier for me to take to the track already done most of the panel damage, just playing "clear the workshop" to make space to pull the motor and box out, fix some oil leaks, replace the clutch, and replace a few minor broken things.  Also got a Lathe at the start of the year, which is adding to the annoyance of no space, which is another reason I'm trying to build things to get more space, to get the Lathe back in a final home for it. It's a BIG lathe, can turn a 355mm diameter, and 1metre between centres... Got it at a steal! So between it and the TIG and old MIG welder, I'll be fabbing some fun little shit up But we've had a lot of shit stuff happening at home, so it's slow going getting things done. But one step at a time!
    • I love Catalunya.  Got a 1:54.632. The AMG is a hoot.
    • I hadn't got that far, my main worry was the connection to the actual calipers themselves. I'm just using new (ish) stock brake lines in the stock setup. I've just had a stud welded to the knuckle that is a little lower than the original stud (so my knuckles have two studs each side) to not have it be stretched so far in previous BBK setups, so the "block" (in the second picture) mounts a little lower for me and I hope I don't need to change anything. I may have even changed the connection to the calipers in the past and have since forgotten I did that. I may not have. Guess how I'm gonna find out. Source: hopium
    • It's more so I'm using the 1x piece line from HEL that goes from the body to the caliper. There's no middle block/mount like the HFM ones or the GKtech ones. There are certain angles/suspension compression where the line actually slightly contacts the ARB. Below of how mine sit (not my photo): How I want it:
