Keep everyone up to date with how your project is coming along.
I'm not sure how to start this, but perhaps some of you might be able to help along the way.
I am on the process of building a RB25DET S1 for my S14.
I purchased the engine a while ago as a long block, the engine was taken apart before I bought it but it looked in pretty decent condition,
truth is you can never be sure if you don't see it running, so I decided to rebuild it completely. Especially after a few red flags, the head was removed and was only being held by two studs, the oil pan was hit and damaged the oil pick up/screen.
My intentions with the car is to be able to treat it as a street/track car, be able to drive it out of state, hit the track and drive back type of build.
I am not aiming for crazy power, mainly reliability in mind. I basically would like to do it once do it right, hopefully without breaking the bank. I am aware of the "oiling issues" which I also intend in fixing. I would appreciate any input, what's needed, not needed, overkill or not, unfortunately I don't have a huge budget but I like to do things the right way. As setup goes, here is a rough idea. I intend to be around the 400 to 500whp with pump gas, would definitely like to drive the engine on the limiter on some occasions/track. I will most likely be using a Haltech Stand alone, engine will be mated to a 370Z 6 speed transmission (already own) which I still need to source out and get all parts $$. But before I get ahead of myself, back to basics.
I am looking to get the head serviced first at the machine shop, get all recommended/necessary parts.
Gather the parts for the swap.
Send the block to the machine shop and do the same.
Anyone who has experience and read this far and can help, I truly appreciate it! Any questions, more information needed please ask.
Thank you all very much!
