What to put in my s13?
« Reply #120 on: February 25, 2005, 02:31:27 PM »
im not interested in debating and the competing with the 20 and 25, merely peoples opinions for what to put in my car.

And i wasn't talkin about buildin the fastest car in the world.

Thanks alot gtsr those pics are sick.

 I'll save up for a rb25det but realistically i think i'll choose the 20det as their alot cheaper, and also parts, oh and i want ur ecu still Gareth lol.

Although i was tired of the lag from my skyline, but i also think my turbo was going so that contributed to it. I think also with the money difference in the 25 and 20, i'd be able to sort that lag out with a few mods?

And since my silvia is lighter than the skyline it will be an advantage.

And lastly i wouldn't wanna jump forums as sdu has helped me out heaps here!

Hopefully my assumptions make sence when it comes time to part with my money.

Just quicker than most 32s:D Oh and what about r34 gtts dont they use the 25 in that car to?If the 25 wasnt a better engine than its 2 litre brother why did they stick with it in the 34s?they could have gone back to the more superior 2 litre:dozey: but they didnt.hmmm you think nissan know what they are doing??:laugh:
Really if you want to compare apples with apples your old 32 vs my 33 basicly same mods e.g step one turbo upgrade,fuel system,intercooler etc etc not sure if you had an ecu?I got 254rwkws but more importantly close on 1800 NM of torque now what do you think has more potential?Really this could go back and forth for ever the facts sometimes dont want to be seen.I think SMOKEY HAYES needs to take you out for ablast in his car gtstCruiser.From what I here its quite an experiance .:king: Though you are right in saying that the rb20 will be more cost effective with parts and to buy etc etc but somtimes when you want/need somthing better you got to pay a lil bit more.:p

An RB20DET will be good in an S13, as 2litres is pretty reasonable for a light car - so its still going to be able to provide pretty reasonable acceleration.    I know of RB20DET powered S13s, with both R32 and R33 turbos on them and they go pretty nuts.  

Sorry about going off the topic a bit with RB20 vs RB25, I reckon the RB20 would be fine for that application - I just don't like the risk of dumb comments being taken seriously.

I also think the rb20 will be good in the silvia.But if you want somthing more/better than the rb25 is it.I dont think any one has said the rb20 is rubbish ?far from it.:)
