    RB30 Blocks - Much interest in the USA?

    Hey,

    I am just curious to see if there is any interest in the States for the Nissan RB30 motors that we have here in Australia...

    If someone could let me know it would be great...

    Cheers,
    Peter

    Might want to explain the difference over the rb25/26 mills as well as any advantage or disadvantage...also might want to have a similar post about this in the skyline forums.

    The problem with the RB30 block is there is a lot of custom modification needed to make them work with which ever RB you are mating them to.

    I would rather swap a RB26 into my Gts-t than an RB30, just because of the ease and aftermarket support. And I dont have the time or knowledge to make the 30 work.

    actually the rb26 head bolts directly to the rb30 block, only the holes in the block for mounting the head need be widened to suit the larger head bolts from a rb26. i actually have 2 rb30s for sale.

    the sump/oil pickup also needs to be modified if I recall. There is someone on GTRCanada.com right now doing the build. And it's cost him big $$$ and a lot of time to complete the project.

    the swap is so much more complex because hes retaining AWD on the gtr. if it was going in a RWD car he wouldnt have to mod the oil pan. check out some aussie skyline and calais forums and you will see. unless u have a gtr, this swap isnt as hard as some make it seem

    ah ok that makes sense. Man what a crazy ride it would be to have a 30 block in my Gts-t!! :D

    yea, some of the fastest skylines in aus/nz are powered by rb30s. they can make really stout numbers on a reconditioned stock bottom end.

    I have done several rb30 builds with bolth head with the 25 dead the only thing you need to do is add a tensioner and a oil restrictor. raw brokridge sells bolth. as well as tomei. rb26 head you have to do the same thing but you have to drill and tap the block for bigger head studs.
