View Full Version : SR Maintainence

09-03-2006, 02:22 PM
So I pulled my redtop SR out of my S13 to replace a lot of parts I never got around to replacing when i swapped my motor. Here is the list of parts that I am replacing:

Oil Pump/Front Cover
Front Main Seal
Rear Main Seal
Timing Chain Tensioner
TC Tensioner Gasket
TC Guides
Timing Chain
1.0mm Headgasket
ARP Headstuds
Valve Cover Gasket
Exhaust Manifold Gasket
Intake Manifold Gasket

Is there anything else that I should replace/upgrade to now. Should i get some RAS? I want to make 250-275 as DD. Any suggestions?

yes definately the RAS, id say a priority after the pump. is this for a drag setup?

No just my Daily and to the track on weekends. I plan on running a setup using the stock t25 or t28
370 or 550 injectors
z32 MAFS
ECU Tune

Ya if you are going to remove the front cover are you going to replace the upper oil pan gasket as well???

what does RAS stand for?

Rocker Arm Stoppers.

well why the hell would that become priority after a pump?

09-03-2006, 07:57 PM
dont think i would call it a priority as much as i would consider it being a "safety mod". youll have to be doing some serious revving to cause a rocker to actually fail. also in most cases ive seen with my own eyes RAS really dont do much for the situation other then keeping the rocker from flying around the head. its still going to crack/jump out of place.

Redo all your turbo lines while you're at it. It's really easy with the motor out.

Place in town makes custom steel braided lines and was planning on getting some.Also just recently replaced all my turbo gaskets and dp gaskets, new
z32 fuel filter,walboro 255. Can anyone think of any other seals or gaskets etc. that should be replaced?

Also, are RAS cost effective and serve a purpose worth spending the 60buks + shipping?

Depending on my turbo and injector setup I plan to make 250-300hp DD

Make sure your place knows exactly what size fittings and hose lengths to use. If in doubt, get a set from Taka Motorsports. Do it right the first time.

I have the RAS. It's just cheap insurance in case you overrev.

Read the SR FAQ at the top. There is a lot of info in there as well.

sounds like ill spend the money for the added insurance. Any other important repairs I ve missed?

You can go on and on all day. Just focus on the important parts like lubrication and gaskets/seals. Those are the major problem areas.

This isnt a wish list. This is more of a checklist to make sure I remember everything important like gaskets and seals that need to be replaced. Thx for the info guys
