R32 GTST - RB28 Build


Recommended Posts

Was back in the garage today. Started off with the installation of my Nitto head drain. Installation is pretty straight forward.

Knocked the welch plug out.

Drilled 13/64 and tapped M6x1. Cleaned it out thoroughly afterwards.

As per the instructions, I put oil resistant gasket maker on the drain and thread sealant on the bolts and tightened it up.

Lastly my driveway is on a slant so I cannot push cars up into the garage. I installed a winch in the garage to pull in any cars that can't move under their own power (engineless, etc.) or that are equipped with summer tires in the winter. Skyline got stuck in the driveway last winter when I pulled it out to do an oil change on my daily driver... When it came time to drive it back in, tires would just spin on the ice/snow. Had to wait 2 days, and get two of my neighbors to help push it in. I don't want this happening again...

I had to weld up a bracket and punch in 4x studs into the cement but came out great. I'll be using my lawn tractor battery as it serves no purpose in the winter.

    • Just wondering if there is anyone else. Spoke to them but want to know if there is other prices out there in Aus. Do you know who make the polycarbonate windshields? 
    • Try a window tinter for tear offs, a local place here in Townsville has done them in the past. A quick google search will help https://www.facebook.com/RaceScreen-Tear-Offs-169184126960839/ https://www.alfab.com.au/3d-shaped-polycarbonate-race-boat/
    • Yes but no.  Start with 450hp and see how it goes. Should go alright with Z221 295 Hankooks all round. I'm running Enkei RPF1's but reading the above might have to look at other options if I get into it again. Koya seem to have some well priced semi forged wheels.
    • Anyone know we’re I can get tear off racing windscreens in Australia? Similar to the ones you see on the V8 or on your motor cross googles. Also where can I get polycarbonate windscreens for a commodore here in aus ? Please let me know 
    • @GTSBoy, School me on the ITB options!! We are not committed to the RB26 option. For us it is all about the sound and feel of the car. Big power figures are not required. Any RB25 NA engine is going to be a big power increase on what an L series NA can do. It has to run well on 98 fuel. I run my WRX on E85, and I like it on a big boost turbo, but it can be a hassle to get at times. The S30 has to be able to go on a cruise and get fuel in little town 2 hours from a major city. So that will probably set the comp. Then we will get the heads done and some not too wild cams. I think revving for max power around 8k (limit to 8500?) as it will cost lots to get a bottom end to stay together much higher.  That should set the cams. We want to run the NCVS which is one of the reasons I wanted the NEO head. Some nice headers with the ITB should do OK for power and sound great.  Light flywheel so it is snappy free revving.  We just have to find the right engine to start with first!
