this was a great way to save a few $$.
i have salvaged a r32 rb26dett with around 90,000km on it with a rb25 gearbox and also i have kept the r200 diff which has a brand new cusco lsd
and tailshaft as well as wiring loom and a few other bits and pieces.
As i am not a mechanic i have decided to take the car to these guys called ultimate performance in Brendale to complete the installation.
The Manager is a really knowledgeable bloke named Jamie and he is a fiend for old jap classics i think he has 3-5 cars restored, ranging from galant's with evolution motors and ra28 toyota celica liftback's.
Budget will mean that i will keep the whole thing pretty factory as i want a really reliable car so....
list of things i have purchased and installed so far.
engine mounts from castlemaine hot rods in Vic.
The kit is for a rb30 bottom end soooo..... it was not a straight fit
i have since had the entire engine bay shaved and any unwanted mounts have been removed to give the car a really clean look.
the timing belt
rear main seal
new n1water pump
new n1 oil pump
Oil cooler and relocation kit to keep things cool.
all gaskets and rubber/silicone hoses replaced
front mount intercooler with custom ends to fit straight into the existing air duct holes (perfect for the piping)
3 inch mandrel bent exhaust
custom oil catch can and radiator overflow
custom aluminium radiator to bolt directly into factory mounts. its just thicker with a thermo fan
custom oil pan made by Dryden Motorsports
I found out that the Turbo's where stuffed so i have purchased 2x garret 2860 -5's
and some Tomei Dumps.
all polished aluminium intercooler piping.
im running a EMS ecu for the Rb26 on its own circuit.
defi Guages Throughout
Greddy Profec B spec 11 electronic boost controller
The Fuel System is going to be fairly basic with a surge tank in the rear spare wheel well with a lift pump and a bosch 044 pump to fuel the engine.
here are a few picks of the latest purchases so far and some progress photos to come.

new turbos Garret 2860 -5's we will wait and see how long the standard internals last with these puppies bolted on
as you can see the custom sum is bolted up i would have likes it a bit larger but this design has been used on his BMW e36 track car and has never been a problem so it willl be fine.

although it was raining it was a great day.
The build took me just over 15 months which was really quick.
i have the car where i want it to be at the moment and just look forward to driving in and enjoying all the hard work,money and stress that has been put into it.
the final product is beautiful i love this car inside and out and i have got exactly what i wanted as far as looks and power/handling and braking are concerned.
this car is the product of countless hours trolling forums and youtube.
i swear i have watched every youtube video with datsun in it 10 times over.
it is a constant motivation seeing all the progress other guys are making and have done.
The car has 335hp at the wheels at 7400rpm at 12psi
plenty of room to grow!!
r33 rb26dett engine
r33 rb25det gearbox
1 piece tail shaft
castlemaine rod shop engine mounts.
the engine has basic modifications
custom 7litre oil pan from Dryden Motorsports.
Garret 2860 -5 turbo chargers
Turbo smart Plumb Back Blow off valve
aluminium catch can
3inch high flow mandrel bent exhaust
bosch 044 and 2 litre surge tank
defi guages (boost,water,oil pressure)
the car has fully adjustable coil overs from k-sport
custom sway bars front and rear.
4 pot calipers on front with slotted drilled ventilated rotors
2 pot calipers on rear slotted and drilled
rota rbx wheels
achilles 123ss tyres
paint is subaru sti pearlescant white with satin black with a hint of pearl in flares/front bar. looks amazing in sun photos dont do it justice.
interior is completely restored original.
i love the classic look and didnt want loud colors because i think the body of the car speaks for itself.
i wanted a classic aggressive look.
definitely forgotten a lot of stuff but just ask questions and ill have the answer or photos to match.
the photos i have are off a iphone and i hope to have some professional ones coming in the next couple of weeks
and some videos.
The Photos im uploading are a steady progression to the finished product.
