It doesnt even go close, bores are massively different...and the Rb20 head may struggle on a 2.6L...anything can be done, but not worth the agro and dubious results:(


And i am sure the 20 head would handle the capacity as long as the power is kept under 300rwkw.

Thanks for your input.

Does anyone know if this head will definatly physically fit on or not as the RB25DE one does.

Any one attempted this???

The RB25 / 26 are 86mm bore, the RB20 is only 78mm bore.

If you try and fit a RB20 head on a RB25 / 26 block, you will risk having the piston smash into the head. The other thing is that the RB20 head will have relatively small combustion chambers, which will cause a big rise in compression ratio, which is dangerous for running high boost levels.

The converse (RB25 / 26 head on RB20 block) gives too much protrusion of the block deck into the combustion chamber, and a big drop in C/R, making it a bigger dog off-boost.

    • Hey just wanting to know if a R34 gtr wheel hub will bolt onto a R34gt rear knuckle?  I am doing a 350z lsd conversion and I came across an issue with the rear axles fitting into the wheel hub as the spline count is different. I think the r33/4 (GTR)wheel hubs are 32 spline while the standard 3x2 rear axles are about 28,  the 350z rear axles I’m using are also 32 spline so I don’t see why it won’t fit apart from where the hubs bolt onto the knuckle  I am not 100% sure about any of this and would like some info before I go mix n match and help would be appreciated.🙏  
    • There is none when used in the radius rods. I am a strong advocate of sphericals in that location.
    • Oh damn, thats seriously cool. I have the Thrustmaster T248 which is the entry level one. Its really good but I have no basis for comparison as I've never used a better one. I'd like to change the pedals for the pressure ones (cant remember the name) and get a proper frame and seat because I just have a stand for the pedals and wheel now and I need to brace them against things so they dont move when I'm trying to pull up after a long straight! 🤣 EDIT: These ones; https://www.thrustmaster.com/products/t-lcm-pedals/
    • Pulled the lazy pin and ordered the 4 new calipers for just over $600
    • My son will go for his driver's licence next year so he thrashes GT7 all the time (with the wheel, pedals and shifter). As a result he's always talking about updates etc so I play quite a bit too.  A few times every week. The regular updates are awesome. I mainly just do time trials vs my son. The current hotness here is the Aston Martin Valkyrie around Nordschleife @ 5:38.9
