What would the advantages be in using an N/A RB26 as a base engine ?

That was my original plan when contacting Thor/OS Giken

Use an RB30 bottom end (but use custom pistons as the existing ones are low compression.)
Bolt on a modified RB25 head and then use the individual throttle bodies I already have, giving me an NA twin cam 3 litre and about 320Hp and no spinny things, yehawwwww

I know

I thought it might have gone un-noticed but a certain big fella with a beard said "Not a chance"

I wanted to do this because it'd be in the spirit of the 240. Also it fits in with my car fleet plan

N/A tuned monster - 240z
Turbo monster - 300zx
Supercharged monster - 350z

It makes sense you see. The RB30 bottom end from what I've read had some odd harmonics or something, and wouldn't rev as well. I have been discussing an NA RB engine for a while now, I'll try and dig out the threads when I can.

Looks a pretty mighty box, once exposed to the usual Porter spit and polish I have no doubt it will be a work of art, shame its underneath..

They look shiny!

Is there any rubber mounting that goes with them, or are they solid?? Might be a daft question

Solid part (in photo) bolts up to RB block then you fix a Toyota Supra Turbo rubber engine mount to that and then it all bolts up to the original Z cross member.

The rubber mount then gives it some movement like the standard Z ones.

Yes it is shiny and before you ask Skidders they came that way i have not polished them up but i have cleaned up the gearbox

Trip out on monday to see Andy car in the flesh !

Brian Baker bought me a later type gearbox mount to the meeting last night i will have to have a set of mounts made and welded to the tunnel to allow the use of the skyline box you have to cut the Z one out or the box will not fit.

Should have some more bits this time next week and hopefully the RB26 engine will be sorted (deal done)
