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

    • 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
