what rb series engines could i squeeze into a datty 1200 ute - been looking at doing it for a while but still undecided on the engine for it, thinking maybe a 20det even a 25det if it would fit?

I've seen an sr20det in a 1200 ute.

I don't know wether an rb would fit without having to move a chunk for the firewall. most of the RB's are roughly the same dimensions. so if a 20 should fit  so should a 25 or a 26.
AFK.

haha i put sum 175 tyres on the back today with all the rain.like driving on ice:D it goes alright,will do a low 15 as is...needs the right diff ratio to run faster on 1/4.  200 down the back straight at puke in 4th gear.
a 1200 with that motor would be insane.have to minitub it to get sum decent rubber in their.definatly be a good skid ka
good luck if u go ahead!

poizyn.  I took a look at the 1200 sport sedan, cool, and alot of work gone into it. I see it was set up with a single cam N/A motor, have they test fitted a RB25det? any updated pix?
