You should sell me the car


I'd just love to sit and stare at it and be like "my life is complete. I own a GTR"

Niiice^^^ but that's a Gtst from the front bumper and not a gtr model lol

despite not doing anything to this thread for almost a year the car went back together stock for this summer because I wanted to drive it. So I did exactly that and had one hell of a time with it this summer until I blew the front diff....

I blew the diff maybe a good month and a half ago now and in order to replace the shredded gears in the diff the engine has to be yanked out.

So I managed to get the car in a garage for the upcoming winter. it's still summer out which bums me out because I can't drive my car. On the other hand the real build can finally start with the engine being re-built and the front end getting some touch ups. I'll post some pics later because I have started tearing down the car for this

Update (literally a year later....)

Anyways as mentioned above after the past winter months I threw the car back together stock. The summer was fun! Raced my car on a real track and met up with other local around town





Then people cannot drive and got this nice dent



So I now have a carbon hood on the way. After a week from that happening I blew my front diff from a hard launch so I decided to pull my engine. The car is now outta c omission for the rest of the year till next summer.

So now I have the car sitting in its forever home for a year



Accessories all stripped off



Engine being pulled



Engine safe and sound ready for cleaning and getting everything else off



So there you have it, that's as far as I am with the car. This us not a dead thread :P

Cool. RB26 is a blast isn't it? I still crave the power. I had 3 R32 GTRs and one gtst, and 2 Silvia's. Man they were good times.

Some more news with the skyline

Got the engine bay all nicely cleaned up and got the front bumper bar off since it was rusted pretty badly

So with the bumper bar off fixed the rust issues by sanding the rust off and painting it back over with rustoleom white paint. It pretty much looks like new again! Did the same for my horns as they were looking very rough



Now back to the engine. Got the transmission disconnected off from the engine



Then came the engine strip down! So this included fuel rail, injectors, intake plenum, the two turbos, exhaust manifolds and all the oil, coolant and vacuum lines



And here it is all off the engine sitting beside the transmission



So that was last weekends work. Never got the engine on the engine stand yet because I don't have long enough metric bolts to go into the block. So this was as far as I can go before it gets mounted. Work for another day!

Well another day with the skyline

Let The Engine Strip Down Commence



So start taking the main crankshaft pulley with the the timing belt and cam gears. Then the intake manifold with the cam covers after with the cams. By the time you know it the head is off and it's looking like this



Now was time to take the oil pan off. You can see in the picture below that the front diff is connected to the oil pan. The whole reason why the engine came out for a blown diff.



Engine oil pan off and sitting on the ground, then the pic on the engine





Main lower bearing brace removed with all the baffling



And finally got all the pistons out sitting pretty on the bench



So another day done with everything almost everything dis-assembled. All that's gotta be done is cleaning and take a closer look at my front diff

Well got around to removing the crank shaft from the block including the oil pump






Inspected all the bearing journals and the cylinder bores. All looks well without the need of re-boring the cylinders so im pretty happy about that

So now it was time to inspect my front diff so here we go. Took off the front cover and the side cover to where it seal on the side. Split the flange and removed the whole extended shaft





Once that was out it was a little bit of manoeuvering to get the diff out



Here's the whole reason why the engine came out (don't mean to keep repeating myself but ive got proof of what happened now) Pictures will do the talking







Now no one in my town will clean up the oil pan or the engine block so i'll be driving down to the bigger city down south for the shop im bringing my engine parts can do the following jobs for me

-Balance the crankshaft
-Clean and flux coat (check for cracks) the oil pan
-Clean and flux coat (check for cracks) the engine block
-Deck and re-hone engine block

So pretty much saran-wrapped the oil pan, engine block and lower bearing brace and in the Tacoma it goes for a road trip down south for next weekend



There you go for all you readers. Everything dismantled and now we can start the re-building phase of things for then engine and a new front diff

Awesome, I'm doing basically the same thing with my corolla. The 3TC is about a million times simpler though

Sorry if I missed it but are you planning on replacing the pistons/rods for more boost?

Oh yeah I bet it's much easier haha

It's on my first page why I wanna build my motor but no worries, I haven't really explained to much on exactly why anyways

The stock engine can handle 500 hp but your pushing it and you better have a great tune to run that but before you even hit 500 you have to replace the head gasket to a metal one

I'd like to hit somewhere between 500 - 600 hp reliably so a full forged bottom end is an overkill but I'll have a bullet proof bottom end. I'd like to hit a minimum of 20 psi with the new turbos so we'll see where this goes

Still don't have a plan for the engine head haha
