:laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
and i bet thats the worst handling FD in the world.

i dont think the guy know what the better engine maker, he just doesnt know engines enough.

if i have to see another S13 with RB in it, i would throw up.:laugh:

not saying nissan dont make good engines, but there is no need for rotor bashing.

I'll be putting a 20B in the Cefiro drifta after the RB20DET craps itself.

450hp 2.0l Non Turbo and twice as much torque :D

i didn't know that rotars chew gas like dogs balls and that isn't what i want since im drivin around 40 k's a day..

SO Flagged!

I like the rb20 and figure with the cash it'd cost to buy a good 13b i could prolly get a rb20det and exhaust n gearbox for about the same i think im not sure just assuming.

lexus v8 is worth considering,i remember an ozzy mag claiming that they can handle pumping out quite a lot of power without requiring internal mods.
they are a 4 litre? all alloy? unit.
should be able to pick one up from around nz$1800.oo?  what you save on the initial purchase and not having to mod the engine you will probably spend on gearbox adaption ect ect....
twin turbo would be nice also, probably wouldnt need too larger turbos either if you went turbo.
visibly quite a short engine front to rear, maybe mount turbo behind radiator, seen this done on single turbo v8 conversions, looks strange but hey if you wanna make the power who cares.

plenty of torque for a daily driver, and being ecu controled im sure you could tune some economic running into it at low revs.

rb20det is revvy and lots of fun , and can be economical as a daily driver, in this case you might consider purchasing a gts-t wreck so you can transplant the brakes,master cyl, and do a 5 stud conversion at the same time, hell it might have a good set of wheels still if you get one that has been rear ended, gear box you will have and the front cross member....... makes sense really.
replacement value for blown engine from$0-$1500 plus mods ect

rb26dett very cool but it will cost you alot more in the long run, this engine requires more maintanence .
replacement value for blown engine-5k plus mods reco ect

rb25det   i dunno, bigger turbo more cc's cant hurt.
lurking still......

I say if you can afford it get a RB25, they are just as easy to fit as a RB20 and the extra torque makes it a lot of fun. They make good power with minor mods too.

There is a Lexus V8 powered S13 in Chch apparently it goes really well.

The RB25 is harder to fit in the S13 than the RB20.  We have done both.  The RB25 tranny is much larger and hits the tranny tunnel.  Some hammer work fixes that though.  Also the RB25 engine harness is way differnet than the S13 and R32 (whicjh are very similar.  We should be cranking the Rb25 car for th first time, tonight or tomorrow.

I have a 13B Twin turbo in my FD that gets 400km and gets thrashed everywhere.

I have a RB20DET in my cefiro which is my daily / Drifter and I thrash that too..... It gets around 400km a tank too.

So regarding the RB20DET being more economical I think your source is simply mis-informed.

Also the Rotary has alot more potential to modify than the RB20DET. The RB20 engine can't produce more than 400hp as the Head can't flow any more air to prooduce more power. The Rotary is pretty much unlimited by this as it has no head and you can just modify the ports. a 13B can produce 1000-1200hp. But at the end of the day its your decision but the RB20 is probabaly a cheaper option the RE is probabaly a better option but it will cost twice as much.

At the end of the day what are you using the car for ?

The RB25 fits EXACTLY the same as a RB25. The outside of the engine doesn't know the bore and stroke! :)
Easy fix, is to use a Rb20 trans... the 25 trans takes about 3 bumps with a hammer to get to fit.

Wiring is just as easy also. Hardest part is the temp senders range :D

BTW, ask Smokey how much a RB25 'upsets' (or doesn't) the balance of a S13. :)

No RB20 makes OVER 1300NM at the wheels from 2800-6600rpm or 225kw atw on a std turbo :)

1300Nm ??? A Super GT I know of only makes 600Nm of Torque @ 515kW. What a crock ? You mean 300Nm ?
