RB Front Clips

I just got my 240sx about a month ago and i've been saving up for an rb25 swap. Im doing the swap myself and I plan on getting the front clip off a skyline to make sure the wiring and all the other extra goodies are there. Where can I find a good fornt clip for an r33 with an rb25det for around 3k. Also are there any JDM shops in south florida that do great work.

I would just buy a motorset from a depot and then buy the parts separately. Just get a wiring specialties harness. If you get a clip, you'll end up with an entire front end that you have no use for.

I live in South Florida and provide many of the services you will need. Wiring / tuning for instance.

I know all the shops around here and none are worth your money or time.
There used to be some good ones but they are long gone. You can't even trust them to change your tires anymore.


Your best solution is learn to do everything yourself.

Terrible TERRIBLE IDEA.

wiring specialties? Riiiiiiight. More like "hey we'll probably miss a few pins and then you'll spend six months shipping this harness back and forth to us before we get it right". Chase bays is no better.

Having a full clip is extremely useful, not only for troubleshooting, but also for being able to sell off all the extra bits and pieces you don't need/use.

We bought a blacktop s13 clip a few years ago for $2500 (no body panels included) and made back almost $800 just on bits and pieces we didn't use.

What's the likelihood of someone needing pieces from a clip from a r33? I've seen a FS thread on here and he's had the SAME shit for sale since he opened the damn thing. If you were going SR, of course buy a front clip because you can use 95% of the shit on them. R33? just buy a motorset. I personally haven't had any negative experiences with my wiring specialties harnesses. I had my S13 SR harness from them, no issues. My RB25 harness no issues. And now, my RHD RB25 harness with hopefully no issues (knock on wood). I'd trust WS more than Chase Bays though, for sure.

Edit: OP, if you want amazing customer service and good work, take a trip to Orlando and give your shit to Raw Brokerage. I only deal with them for all my RB stuff and they are the best.

Do you know if Raw Brokerage has lots of after market parts for the rb25? And what is so and about getting a front clip won't I be able to use some of the things that come with it and make the swap a lot easier

I thought I was the only one.

OEM harness + wiring it yourself = FTW
