    right got this rather clean r32 gts non turbo manual few weeks ago

    spec was:

    -tien coilovers
    -mines ecu
    -blitz airfilter
    -and some apexi dash board gadget thingi


    plan was to keep it na for a daily.... ah but whats the fun in that!

    so got hold of a low mileage rb20det which will be getting delivered sunday

    spec on that i roughly know



    -uprated pistons
    -1.8mm steel head gasket
    - other then that i think its stock :)

    soo picss for now

    as you can see in the next pic i nipped the advans for my datsun
    and whipped off the gay spoiler and put jic magic rear coilovers on as the tiens didnt have much of a drop:confused:

    so soon after knowing i had a engine sorted i got bored last night and decided to whip out the old rb20de

    Cool! :smokin: should be good mate, im just pulling the rb20det and box out of mine to put rb26dett in, i do love the rb20det tho i think its a great engine and if i had the money to forge the rb20det and keep it i would but its working out cheaper to go the rb26 route. Good luck with the conversion mate ill be keeping a eye out! :thumbs:

    It looked awesome with the Advans! Like it man, it's cool to see an R32 on wheels like that, I seem to be emphasising it a lot, but put them back on and make it lows! :p

    you sure that motor isnt just a rb25de with a turbo..i would never put rb20 head on a rb25det block...and ud think no one else would either.
