All Great products!! I would def reccomend the piston return spring, a must needed item for built apps.
Good stuff. I didnt realize they were that expensive. How much were yours?i meant enjoi. and no i got a maxima mafs. the 300z is n62 and is rated to around 500whp. i'm not going that high so this 10 dollar mafs is fine. the 300z gos for about 179 with nothing else included.
Good stuff. GL with MAKO. The one in my area sucks, but im not saying they all do. But then again you get what you pay for. What size are the injectors and are you going with a garrett turbo?i know. i'm going s13 front end in a bit. hopefully at the end of winter. it's about 1000 dollars for the swap shipped and installed. then i'll go to mako and get a 700 dollar paint job. but this is after i get soem 200 dollar sti injectors and a 600 dollar turbo and make some real power.
8k? i dont want do that anymore, not with this 240 anyway but i was thinkin more along the lines of 5-6. If i could get the motor for like 2k and spend 3-4k on everything else (mounts, drivertrain etc..)btw you don't want an rb
a decent rb25 swap will cost about 8 grand
I am in school but not high school. I was thinking about the wiring as well, if it was really worth the trouble.remember you're in highschool rb's take alot of care. and they're an iron block 6 cyl. they aren't light.
Yeah we do that alot, ha.holy whores batman
you guys blew up this thread
I think i read about that 700hp Sr but they said that couldnt be verified, and if it could theres no way its be a DD or even reliable. From the info i have recieved; reliably, Srs are good up to 400.WVU97GS-R said:umm the record for a stock sr is over 700 hp hehe. your car is already wired for an sr. if you're that eager to spend 5 grand get an sr long block throw some forged internals in it injectors and a mafs with a ball bearing turbo and make mid 300 whp and tq.
it would be a track car. Thought i dont id go with the godzilla.hahaha rb26's suck unless built. they won't support anywhere near 1000hp. it's not a 2jz. they have oiling issues out the ass. an rb26 swap is 12 grand easily and yeah the motorset is cheap but all the fabrication you'd need? and the guy who tunes my car has been making 475whp for a year and a half now on his stock bottom end sr. i have a friend with an 800whp rb26 with crazy work and the first thing he told me was. "anybody who has ever done any real work with an rb will tell you that they aren't worth it for street driven 240swap" you'll have a built motor able to make over 650whp and that 'll make 400whp daily and 500whp at max boost way before you'll have a stock rb26 in your car.
atleast come take a ride in my car first before you make a decision. you can even call import intelligence in paoli and they'll tell you that an rb26 in an s-chassis will also make you understeer like crazy, especially in an s13 chassis (already prone to understeer) i could get the rb26 swap done in my car for under half that price since i know people and i'm not even considering it. you might as well spend the 17 grand and have a legal r32 skyline
yes you could have an sr built to make 600whp for the price to do a gtr swap the right way. and the car will not be balanced with an rb. call import intelligence in paoli and ask them. they did the swap. if your car wasn't already wired and setup for an sr i wouldn't so against an rb. but you said it for youself that your is gonna be a track car. if that's the case you really don't want an rb at all hehe. a stock bottomed sr withe cam upgrades and a top mount 3037s would be far more balanced cheaper and shit all over an rb swap at a track event.
the sr's head issuse the hydrolic lifter. all you do is switch solid ones or use ras. and you're fine. but that's only if you want to rev to to 8000 rpms or higher. you really don't need that with an sr anyway untill you want ot use a monster turboe.
Exactly why i dont want high revs. Boost ASAP, up to a spot where tq isnt falling off, at and beyond decent RPM point. If Srs have a smooth uphill powerband at lower mid-upper RPMS which makes it a point to revving high (more power), well, awesome. My thinking was that you NEEDED to rev high to make power, which IS usually the case with any 4cyl. You hear about nice hp/tq numbers with v8s and i guess 6cyl. Taking into considertation the parts used and whatnotstop thinking like a honda guy. nothing wrong with high reving when you power band needs it. in other words using a bigger turbo that spools later. it'll have a broader powerband up top so you need to rev to achieve it. we rev out of need not because we think it's cool. if you get a gt2871r on an sr and a stage 2 cam upgrade. with valvetrain work. you could take full advantage of the powerband.
alot of honda guys want more revs because it's cool not because they need it. nothin wrong with high revs and boost we don't have valve overlap like a vtec honda. besides rb20's and ca18's rev piss high stock under boost not to mention the sr is perfectly square.
HAHa, relax dude. thats what i was trying to say. Only if your motor has the pointential.acually if you get a a really nice t3 flanged bb gt series turbo that spools quickly, you might need to increase your revs simply because the turbo spools the same but will still make power past redline. in other words a quick spooling turbo with even better topend efficiency range. in other words the turbo has the potential to pull past your current redline. that's when you increase redline. like if you go from having a 3000 rpm powerband to a 4500 rpm power band. reving and boost aren't bad together. so get that out of your head
i have another friend who was a KA 240. I wont have a license back until June and by then his KA should be boosted. We dont drink, but we both are def down with cruising around doin whatever.oh i'm not upset. ;-) i'm excited to have another sr brother who lives near me. btw when you get free weekend and the sr is running. you're rolling with me and the rest of the boost happy freaks to wvu for a weekend of boozing and boosting
