Awesome!
I'm still leaning towards rb25ing mine, will decide once the bodywork is done.
What you doing about sump and engine/gearbox mounts? Fabricating yourself or using off the shelf from McKinney/cx racing?

I haven't decided I was simply thinking about ordering from McKinney / cx .
I recon I could fabricated them ok it just time factor.
Have asked for a qoute for a sump from a guy who makes them on the hybrid z forum
Trouble is the poor exchange rate makes everything so much more expensive at the moment.
Intreasted to hear how others have done there's
Nissan patrol diesel sump ?

Ah, not heard of that one, will have to have a trawl through hybridz. Yeah I needs loads of stuff from the US, hanging fire in the hope the rate will improve with time when people realise the earth isn't going to implode when we're out of the eu 😂

Stage 1 225rwkW (approx. 300rwhp)
Full 3″ exhaust system from dump pipe back
Apexi Power Intake air filter (bolts directly to AFM without an adaptor)
MGP front mounted intercooler kit
Walbro 255L/hr fuel pump with fitting kit
NGK Spark Plugs Ė custom gapped
Upgrade S1 AFM to S2 type (required on S1 cars only)
HKS EVC-S electronic boost controller
Retune factory R33 ECU to suit modifications
You'll want more eventually, assuming you have the suspension, brake and drivechain suitably upgraded you can easily run more than 300hp. I run mine on low boost which is around 400hp most of the time and its perfect at this power level.


With those mods you can easily see 300hp. You can even see this with the stock intercooler but as that won't suit your car anyway your better to go for a for a bigger front mount, plus the cooler the intake air the better.



I had Pat from Hybrid Z make my sump, its actually pretty good apart from on track the baffling isn't adequate for my needs so I'm actually trying to find somewhere than can make me a new custom sump to my specs with a hardcore baffle setup.


Your old car is lovely, damn, I still want another Z, one just isn't enough.

I have asked Pat for a qoute but don't think his will workout any cheaper than a McKinney or Cx
Planning on lowering the engine into the car next week before it goes to paint with a view
To making up my own motor mounts and a sump.
Would be interested if anyone has done simulator on who's engine mounts they have used.

You want a genuine Nissan 200zr sump and oil pickup and your RB will drop straight into your Z
Bolts straight on and save all the messing !

I have one sat in my garage should anyone feel flush
Not cheap, but then no longer available I believe ?

Yeah I can imagine those being scarce on the ground

Did the 200 zr have a one off sump, or will any rb20 one work?
....
Ignore that question, bit of searching and it appears standard rb20/25 sumps are the same

Yes 200zr only as the other RB20/25 are frt bowl, so no use for a Z car

Big step forward
I decided a few weeks ago to buy Wyn's 200zr sump (front bowl) which has save me a ton of time.
This allowed me today to sit the rb25 engine and gearbox in the car and fabricated front and gearbox mountings.All in all a lot easier that I thought it would be
Also managed to work out the length the propshaft needs to be.

200zr and rb25 sumps look almost the same albeit the bowl is the other way round.
You can tell which sump you have buy looking down at the flange.
One end is straight the other end is bowed (banana shaped)
The straight end is gearbox end

So you want the bowl this end of the sump.

John looks very much from the photo you have the correct one
Have you got the pick up ?
