View Full Version : My RB Build - What am I missing???

07-29-2008, 11:01 AM
Well finally I am swinging the RB way. I was contemplating building my SR but after some time debating whether to spend that much on it I am now thinking to sell everything and just build the damn RB. I am not doing anything serious, I just want to make sure that it can handle a little more power. Let me know what you think and what you recommend,

ARP Mains
ARP Headstuds
Polished Crankshaft with Jun Crank Collar already modded
CP 86mm Stock Pistons with stock rods with ARP Rod Bolts
Cosworth Custom Main and Rod Bearings
Tomei 1.2mm Oil Restrictor
Full RB Gasket Kit
Gasket Matched Intake and Exhaust
Head tapped for Sump Return
Stock Head Internals (Cams will follow later on)
Stock OEM Headgasket
Modded RB26 Sump with Tomei Baffle
Greddy Cam Gears
Greddy Timing Belt
Greddy Clear Cam Gear Cover
New Idle Pulleys
Trust Oil Cooler
Ported Exhaust Manifolds
Drilled and tapped coolant for GT cooling modifications
RB25DET box
Mckinney Engine Mounts with one piece driveshaft
GTR32 Entire Rear End
N1 Water Pump
N1 Oil Pump (Thinking about getting the Tomei Oil Pump)

Some other small things but this is the jist of it. What would you'll recommend I get again. Clutch will be some sort of twin disc setup and this will all be going into an S14.5.

Yeah tell me about it, well I have most everything except for the pistons and clutch. Does the list look good so far?

Looks good whats your hp goal? if your going over 8500 in the revs get that tomie oil pump.

I am thinking 600+HP, maybe up to 750 max on twin GT2871Rs eventually but now right now. Also using 1000CC injectors eventually with the cams but for now a stock rebuild with decent parts.

600hp is fine even on the stock longblock as long as you have a decent tune and don't get crazy with the revs. You didn't even need the build.

But yea your build is build is plenty for those goals. If you plan to do sustained high revs then get a better oil pump.

Well I am placing the order for the CP pistons, and the Tomei Oil Pump, bronze valve guides and the Tomei Oil Restrictor along with the new idle tensioners and ARP rod bolts. Hopefully all goes well.
