Anyone on here fitted a RB25DET into their Zed?
I see a few RB26's have been fitted but cant see much on a RB25.

I know I said I wouldn't, but I got that itch again :)

This time I fancy it turbo, so I brought me a 2.5 RB25DET from an R33 Skyline to find out.

Here you go again then. Is this going to be another super quick install like the last one?
Good luck geeza! Did you get the ECU?

I think you need to pop down to spec savers old chap :rolleyes:, Isn't that the ECU sitting on top of the engine :conf2::D.

Good engine choice though, I had a Skyline GTS-T for 2 years and the engine was fantastically smooth and torquey.

Yep I got the lot as it was lifted out from the car.
Engine complete, box, prop, ecu, loom and exhaust aswell as a box of assorted bitties :thumbs:
Not in no made rush this time, but I would like to sort the conversion bits so I can get on with it.
Already made a few enquires so just waiting for replies

Cheers, I had thought about it before but these engine kits arent that cheap to buy complete
But as the price was right on this one I couldn't turn it down so decided to have a go. :)
