    Nice!

    fwiw I had to trim my exhaust manifold heat shield to fit the compressor housing on the new turbo, so may pay to do a trial fit

    Like your choice of catch can btw, keen to do the same!

    Some goodies arrived and being stuck in at the weekends gave lots of time to get the bottom end sorted

    For this build, I decided not to fit an extended crank collar, seeing as it's only going to be running around 350bhp and RB20's don't make enough torque to hurt themselves

    New front and rear main seals were put in, the original oil pump was inspected and everything was inside tolerance with no damage so I reused it.

    Tidy work. This is build quality! Nice touch with the brackets as well on the last page.

    Keep it up.

    New headgasket on

    This time around I ended up threading each ARP head stud through the head into the block rather than fighting to try and get all of them to slide through the head.

    Clutch isn't in perfect condition but works just fine and plenty of life on the disc.

    Now, I was expecting a fight with the gearbox, each time I've put the gearbox on it's taken 4 hours minimum to get it lined up and bolted on and it's been a disaster. I don't know what I did differently this time, I was a bit more pedantic with the alignment tool, it may have been that but I got the box on in under 30 seconds this time, unbelievable

    Time for the install.
    I was doing this on my own with an engine crane and a cut cross member which does make the job a lot easier but still struggled getting it over the lip to the garage. It did involve some sketchy use of a scissor jack but got both front legs over in the end.

    And touch down

    There are a few marks in the purple on the firewall from some swinging donks but these things are very difficult to avoid when you're doing this sort of thing on your own. Hopefully can get them touched up!

    Now I have to admit that the engine mounts need replacing but at the moment I can't collect my new ones due to the current situation so I'm planning on swapping them out one by one before I get anything else fitted up.

    Started work on some smaller jobs like redoing the factory black paint on the headlights

    You can see the difference between the two

    Plenum placed on to check clearance

    I've also wired in and placed my AEM wideband gauge

    I also started some work on future parts I'll need. I want to retain the recirculating BOV that was on before but I couldn't find an adapter for the stock flange to match 2.5" pipe, I measured what I'd need and out it into CAD. Hopefully can get someone to make it out of billet for welding on to the pipework.

    I started to get working on the inlet side of the engine
    Everything is close enough to where it needed to be
    it6F1odaFBaB6hA-iL4jD1FZfn8NKOVMw4m-zpC-pGXETdKMyhxiJi62TFFrWiUyilZn6SZA=w703-h937-no?authuser=0.

    I added the oil cooler sandwich plate and lines.
    You'll notice the fuel filter isn't in the usual place, I thought that moving it here would make it much more serviceable than usual.
    Also note the length of the oil cooler lines, I'm not sure why I made them this long, it may have been easier to install with the plenum in place.

    New inlet gasket on which I was loathed to buy, there are £4.30 in Japan but all about £30 here.....

    Power steering reservoir painted in the usual wrinkle VHT, I've had one of the returns welded up as the whole HICAS side has been blanked off and the lines removed.

    Lower runners on

    Now adding the top plenum was a bit of a disaster, unfortunately the bracket for the throttle cable hit the fuel filter and the oil cooler lines.

    At this point the only way to get it to fit was to put the fuel filter back in the stock location, so I had to move that back and remake all the fuel lines to suit.

    I also had to cut about 150-200mm of oil cooler hose out to lower them down below the runners, thankfully the AN fittings went back on with no troubles and I didn't get stabbed by frayed braid.

    I also had to work out all the sizes for the vacuum fittings on the bottom of the plenum which took a few attempts but they're all in now.

    The bolts also needed spacing by about 6mm to engage the threads and clamp properly.

    I added thermal shielding to the turbo oil and coolant lines

    I remade the intercooler brackets out of thicker metal and got those swapped over

    Now the stock throttle cable was slightly too short for the new throttle body location
    Plus had some lovely rusty brackets

    I bought a universal cable but it wasn't OE quality so I decided to try and make an amalgamation of the two
    Throttle pedal was just as rusty but I'm starting to get bad at photographing everything

    Rust all cleaned up

    Painted up and reassembled
    KvsobFyJe2kVSWZ-0keCFwOUdTX1EgVHKeLLNNx_EKsuBhNWYG9GfSkrHLoQt8mm61wrPjLA=w703-h937-no?authuser=0.

    I transferred the new longer cable and sheath to the stock hardware.
    I had to cut the end of the stock cable to take the pass through for the pedal and the flat end stopper.

    I used a 2mm drill bit to drill through the stock stopper, fed the cable through, moved it all over the car to get it in position and measure the length the cable would need to be. I marked it up, took it all back out and cut the cable to length.

    I ended up putting the stopper in a vice with the cable through it, now the hole is 2mm, the cable is 1.5mm. I used a blowtorch to heat the stopper up and fed solder into the stopper to flow between the cable and the stopper. Once it started dribbling out the bottom I stopped and it seems to securely hold the cable.

    Now I'm not 100% confident on this, I'm not sure what everyone else thinks?
    I added the bolt stopper behind as a second stop just in case.

    I picked up an RB25 fan with now cracks compared to my collection of cracked RB20 fans.

    Just a small update for this one.

    I picked my turbo core back up after a new oil seal and re-balancing, seems it was 4g out of balance

    I'm waiting to get the exhaust housing back as one of the threads got stripped so is being helicoiled.

    I started another mini project which in my opinion is completely unnecessary but I could do it, so I did.
    Intercooler sprayer

    I have no idea how well this will work, if at all, but for the sake of £4 mist sprayers and £2 of aquarium tubing might as well give it a go. It's hooked up to the pump for the rear window spray nozzle. Will try it at some point and report back.

    Nice!

    Word of warning on the sprayers - run a check valve otherwise the water just slowly leaks out after the first squirt

    Seems to work OK and managed to redo the pipework without having to buy any more so that's a small success!

    Now for the fun part, well, bit of an unknown for me as I've not attempted anything like this before.

    It seems you can't buy a weld on adapter for 2.5" pipework and for a stock Nissan BOV pattern, so I had to get creative.
    I also needed to replicate the coolant bleed point on the stock upper plenum I no longer had.
    Plus I needed to add the holes in the pipework for various vacuum ports and adapters.
    Cue the pillar drill

    Fabrication part 2, the BOV flange, this was a tricky one and it was by no means perfect but it worked correctly!

    Swarf, swarf everywhere and took a good few hours but got there in the end!

    Will sit something like this with the BOV piping sorted

    Yes I know the BOV should be as close to the throttle body as possible but rather than having a giant hose lying across the top of the engine I've mounted it on the other side and it will still work properly.

    Here's a Skyline pro tip for you, if you want to check for vacuum leaks and need to plug up the intake, good old John West has you covered

    Dude, what paint is that! Looks like it sticks to anything

    Btw - for your idle-catch issues try put a plate in between the BOV & adaptor to see if it's related to that or not. Otherwise the throttle body stop might need a few turns up to let the throttle wheel rest on it
