Rb 25 neo repeated coil pack failure

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've got a 1999 stage with the normally aspirated RB-25 Neo engine. I have changed the coils and the coil pack wiring loom. However within the last 10,000km it's burned through 9 coil packs. 

Anyone know of any issues that could be causing this and/or potential solutions?

You also need to see if the coils are still getting power after the ignition is switched OFF.  If they are then this will burn a coil out.  Long shot but who knows what your wiring is like after turbo timers and alarms etc have been installed and removed etc

What type of coils are dying? OEM? Good aftermarket (ie Splitfires)? Dubious aftermarket (ie, yellow/red/rainbow)?

It's had a mix of various coil packs, some new OEM, some red, some pink, some scavenged off part cars/breakers.

It's possible, the car does have an aftermarket alarm fitted. What would be the appropriate way to go about testing this?

    • 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.
