Out of towner with new engine build

Hey SAU

I'm hoping to join your community to get lots of tips on building RB motors. I'm not from Aus but I've found the best advice here, hope that's ok. I decided to start building an RB25DET as a hobby that I've always wanted to do. I picked up my motor from a scrap dealer as it was a damn sight cheaper than an RB26 or even a 1JZ motor but I'm super stoked to strip the motor down to the block and rebuild it to test my abilities. I've never built a motor before but have a background in Mining Engineering so not averse to getting into technical details. I wanna start off my first build with stock internals and see how things go from there

sounds like a good project...do you have a future home for it?

It is worth getting the R32 GTR workshop manual, while the motor is not identical, the long block is very similar and it will have pretty much everything you need. There is also an R33 GTST workshop manual which is specific to that motor, but is in japanese

Given that that's a Neo motor, there's also the R34 workshop manual out there to be downloaded. Filename R34 Workshop Manual English.pdf , size 12966KB (usually).

Thanks. I'm undecided between a 350Z or a BMW E36 or E46. I'm looking at an R33 GTS this week but it was imported and not legal as a road car (so would be strictly track or drift)

Thanks. I think I've found the right ones out there. Hopefully my copy has all the torque specs
