RB engine

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how long would an RB25DET engine last. I'm planning to get a car soon maybe 3-4 years time, but don't know if I should go for a new car or just a R34 GT-T (I love the R34 series)? I'm worried that an RB25DET would just die too soon. So what is an average life span for an RB25DET engine? BTW a stock one. By the time when I get a R34, i'm planning on a 7-8 Y.O. car. I'm also worried that the car is going to be unstable, meaning the car would rumble/shaking too much when idling. Is there such things as stablizing kits?? And if the engine died, do i just need to replace the stuff on the engine?

look at all the 15 year old cars that people bring down... when we've had copression tests done on em they've lost about 5% compression MAX which is pretty good considering they're that old. All depends on the life they've led in the past. Buy a good clean stock car and your engine will last till you move on. Buy an ex drift car and expect it to last a week.
