Fitting a RB25DET NEO into a 280ZX

Recommended Posts

hi,

I've sold my R33 and got myself a 1981 Datsun 280ZX (S130)

Managed to find a RB25DET NEO along with a Fatboy gearbox. The plan is to have it relatively powerful but to keep the look period correct as far as possibe.

I see CX Racing in the states offers an engine/box mounting kit for the conversion. the problem is that I'm in South Africa and shipping + duties from there to here is crazy. 

Looking for some advice on any place in Australia which may sell a similar kit. 

Any suggestions?

Engine will bolt right in, gearbox crossmember can be modded to suit, and custom tailshaft is needed.

It's a fairly simple conversion.

Good luck!

with which mounts? The L28 of the RB? The RB mounts are too tall. 

I've read that the stock RB mounts work (they didnt)

Read that the RB bridge mounts with the L28 rubbers work (didnt)

R31 mounts work (dont have a set to try)

R32 mounts work (dont have a set to try)

Just buy the CX racing kit (shipping from USA to South Africa is an issue)

Just by the Mckinnon kit (shipping from USA to South Africa is an issue)

 

Just make mounts (busy trying that at the moment, seems costs will work out to the same as getting the kit)

    • I forgot I did jump it with a 200 amp battery charger before I got a new battery. Is there wires that might have fried or like a immobilizer that could be causing the issue?
    • could cause lean. almost never fail in any meaningful way. My 25DET Neo will cruise at ~400°, pre-turbo. Literally in the turbine inlet. Max load is ~900°C.
    • Thanks for your reply  So for you it's not related to the fuel pump and fuel regulator  What temps should I see on the highway idling at 3k in 6th gear ?  So maybe the CAS is wrongly set, I will remove some advance to see thanks 
    • Hi SAU Team My son and I inherited a very unloved 2002 V35 with a VQ30D. Unfortunately there was a snapped rod in piston one and after stripping it down today the only good parts left are bolt on accessories crank and heads + 5 remaining pistons. Awesome hole in the side of the block. We just picked up a VQ35DE for a couple bucks that has 2 snapped rods but otherwise bottom and top end are good for rebuild but no harness or ecu. While i continue trawling thru the threads here i was wondering if anyone has tried any stoking or de-stroking VQ engines with DD/DE combos and had any experience with the direct injection systems?   Were not specifically building it for performance or throwing a spooly boy on it but rather the challenge:      
    • Hi All. Id like to introduce the project my son and i are building which is a V35. Ive built quite a few A,L,N and SRs over the years and we found a cheap V35 with 6 pots and decided to have a bit of fun with it. Look forward to learning from the knowledge base here and  hope to contribute where we can.
