General Performance / Clutch not engaging
« on: October 27, 2016, 10:37:31 AM »
Having problems with my gts4 with gtr box, clutch isn't engaging? Had the car idling and it was selecting gears without clutch in, doesn't move with clutch in/out at all. New clutch, new spigot bush, new release bearing, clutch aligned. Could the gearbox be suspect?

Forced Induction / Rebuild troubles
« on: May 22, 2016, 01:22:38 PM »
Mid way thru rebuilding 20det and crank is pretty damn tight... once I had all the pistons and girdle etc on I went to crank the engine over (head still off) and it was tough as hell, had to put extension on a bar to turn it over, very tight... are they always tight when new rings and bearings are used?

General Performance / RB20DE crankshaft same as RB20DET?
« on: May 06, 2016, 04:28:38 PM »
As title reads.. are they? Have a knocking RB20DET that is about to come out and there's only one crankshaft for sale on trademe that is a 20de one. Cheers for any help.

General Performance / RB20DET Fuel consumption
« on: November 03, 2015, 05:16:12 PM »
What's everyones RB20DETs using? Mine just guzzled 1/4 of a tank to 40kms.. not even giving it shit either. Is the auto box the cause? Replaced fuel filter a week ago. Use BP 98..

Maintenance & Car Care / Sealing windows in R32?
« on: October 27, 2015, 06:42:11 AM »
How have you guys done it? Hate washing the car with a water blaster.. or even just a hose cause just pours water through the windows... as far as I'm aware new door seal/rubber is discontinued.. is it a case of finding a good second hand seal or is there a trick to it? Any help appreciated.

General Performance / GTS4 Auto to Manual Conversion
« on: October 22, 2015, 09:22:28 PM »
So the time has come to manual convert.

I have a 32 GTR box, GTST clutch pedal, clutch master and clutch line.

I expect to also buy a 9 bolt flywheel, clutch, flywheel bolts, clutch slave(?).

What else would I be looking at buying to finish the conversion. Will a gtst master and line work fine? Lots of threads but with big chunks of missing info in them all.

Any help is appreciated.


General Performance / GTS4 R32 to RB25det (retaining 4WD)
« on: October 14, 2015, 06:59:26 PM »
So, I got a GTS4. Factory auto 20det. I have a S1 RB25DET with a 25det big box. Selling big box to fund a GTS4/GTR gearbox.

What other things will I be needing? I can swap the sump from the 4wd 20DET onto the RB25DET and just mount a gearbox up to it making it 4WD... correct?

Picture Post / ECR32 4dr Skyline Build (Now HNR32)

This is my car. It's got a RB25DET and a RB25DET big box waiting to go in. Just doing little touches to engine bay before engine goes in. Just posting here to keep a sort of log on what I'm doing to give me motivation to actually finish this thing. Had it two weeks so far, two weeks rain, two days painting engine bay. Needs one or two things ticked off the list to be ready to run (minor, oil return for turbo, fuel pump, etc). As I said, just going to be for progress so will be trying to keep text to a minimum and just have all posts being pictures..

That's it for now. Will update with photos later when something more interesting happens.
