We are building an rb26 with a ton of aftermarket parts this build is going to be absolutely insane so let’s get to it what is going on guys welcome back to the throttle YouTube channel my name is Quinn and I’m here with Mickey and we have an rb26 we’re going to be building

In today’s video look at this beautiful block what do we got going on here Ricky it is quite beautiful so this is a prepped block from our friends over at Platinum Racing Products over in Australia this is not actually an rb26 block this is actually an rb25 block we

Were able to get a block that was very uniform and they were able to machine it so that we’ve got very consistent walls in here the block is beautiful and we can sit here and talk about it all day there’s a heap of Parts back here on the

Table so let’s go through what we have here and explain to you guys kind of what the direction of this build and what it’s going to be when it’s done now before we show you guys the parts we’re going to be using on this rb26 I want to

Talk about the engine what we’re going to be using this is very special engine oil by Mo tool you guys know we love our Mo tool this is actually a Nismo competition well developed by motul with the help of Nissan and it’s going to be perfect for this rb26 this engine oil is

Going to be perfect under the high storm conditions that this RB 26 is going to see a lot of power a lot of boost a lot of high RP p.m this engine oil is going to be very composed and it’s not going to break down or fail and it’s going to

Allow this rb26 to run at really high power whether on the dyno or on a track so let’s get into the parts we’re going to be using starting with our short block table we have pretty much all the lower end stuff here we have a set of Italian RP pistons and connecting rods

I’ve never used them before interested to see how their products come together we have a set of ACL race Main and rod bearings going to be going in as well as a platinum Racing Products oil pump and it solves a lot of the oil pump issues

That these RB engines have of course we have the crankshaft which is fitted with the spline drive so this is a stock every 26 crank just fitted to fit the oil pump which is really cool we also have the PRP brace here so this is the pretty much the engine cradle brace so

This is going to stiffen up the block and it’s going to allow us to run the four wheel drive oil pan and get that thing set up which is really cool love to see it it’s unfortunate it’s going to be buried in the bottom of the engine we

Have a new water pump and pretty much all the accessory and all the little things on the engine are going to be brand new such as the lower timing cover rear main seal housings just all the little stuff like that it’s just nice to have new so remember a full set of Grady

Pulleys all the way around PRP sent us pretty much every single Nut and Bolt from the entire engine which is really cool so we have titanium Hardwares everywhere and then this is the hardware pack for the brace as well so we have a lace spec oil pan here so Mickey

Actually sent this out to Stuart and he went through and did it so the theme to with rb26s is oiling is concerned is leave the entire thing stock or go full bore and do literally everything so that’s what we’re doing here we sent this out he added a lot of capacity a

Lot of engine oil volume to this panel added some internal baffling so this thing is ready for some high power and they rebuilt the diff and it looks freaking beautiful really nice piece and here’s our trigger kit for the crank moving on to the top end table we got

Some really nice pieces here starting off with the greddy cylinder head package for the rb26 so this is a recently new thing for Grady which is really cool they’re doing upgraded heads this thing is an absolute monster looks brand new beautiful valving the intake ports on the side are insane it’s such a

Nice looking cylinder head it’s going to low really well this one is also set for a very high lift hydration cam which is supplied by GSC power division that’s part of the cylinder head package so this thing is going to flow extremely well we have a set of grated cam gears

Going along with it this is another piece by Platinum Racing Products so this is a cylinder head drain kit for the rb26 so this is going to pull extra oil and coolant out of the cylinder head this is going to give everything another place to go and drain out we have a full

Set of itbs that have been completely refreshed by Ian from remade in USA this thing literally looks brand new all the hardware has been taken apart and coated as Mickey wanted everything to be coated so nice they did all the little clamps touches it’s such a nice piece and of

Course it’s fitted with a Grady and fuel rail we have a Grady intake plenum just to top the whole gratty head package out and here we have our PRP cam trigger kit so we’re going to be running these this is the exact same kit we used on the

Airb20 work really well and then we have full titanium hardware for pretty much the entire engine by Platinum bracing products so these are for the cam studs we have some for the intake manifold as well as the water pump and the oil pump and pretty much everything else moving

On to the Turbo System we have an rtek manifold we have an r-tech manifold on their Supra we absolutely love it we had one on our gtst it was such a nice piece we thought we’d bring it back and it looks absolutely beautiful we’re going to pair that with a G35 900 turbocharger

And a 45 millimeter turbosmart wastegate we do have a ton of other parts going on this engine this was just kind of the main ones to get it done this is pretty cool this is a competition oil cap by motool which is a really nice touch and

Then we have a Grady timing belt all the timing components literally everything in this engine is going to be brand new the only few things that are missing that are not on the table are the valve covers they have not arrived yet but I think we can get started without them so

I’m very excited to get this rb26 engine build starter we have a lot of really top tier Parts going on to this engine so let’s get into it yes We’re going to start our engine build off with the crankshaft going into the block now this block has been line honed with ARP Hardware in it so we should have absolutely zero problems with inspecting our main bearings and the crankshaft itself is in really good condition so we’re going to put

Everything together make sure that we’re still good just always good to do a double check and then install the crankshaft for the final time get our oil pump and a rear main seal on if you haven’t already make sure to subscribe to the throttle YouTube channel and turn

On the Bell notifications so you don’t miss a thing Foreign We just got our Mains in and checked and they’re a little tighter than I’d like them to be so I think we have a set of oversized bearings that we’re going to drop in and see how the clearance changes plastic gauge is kind of a rough

And dirty way to check what your bearing clearances are now this engine has been out to machine shop so honestly everything should be absolutely perfect but I like to do a double check and that’s why we use plastic gauge so typically we’ll go for a sparing spec

Which is what we’re at we’re a little bit tight so we’re going to throw in some of the oversized bearings to see if we can get it to loosen up a little bit and then we’ll check them again make sure they’re good typically engines that I’ll send out to the machine shop that

They’re doing all this stuff when they inspect the crank they’re miking it they’re miking this checking the main hone or the main Journal where the crankshaft will actually sit and speccing that out so they handed it to us we really don’t have any reason to suspect it being bad that’s why I use

Plastic age if I’m assembling an engine that I’ve never done before and like a block isn’t going out to machine shop then we’ll bust out the mics and make sure everything’s good and plastic gauge isn’t as accurate as you really want it to be but it’s a really good way to

Check that everything is so good so we’re going to take these out put our oversized bearings in loosen up that clearance just a little bit and then double check We’re good now our standard size bearings were a little bit too tight but the oversized bearings work just fine so these ones have a little bit extra oil clearance which is good so when we’re flowing and going fast with this thing we’re not going to have any oil pressure

Issues from the main so we’re going to clean all this stuff off I’m going to actually put this back down measure and play so the forward and backward movement of the cranks see where we’re at and then if we’re good there we’re gonna take it all apart Lube it clean it

Put it back together we’ll be good to go our crankshaft has installed everything feels good we got all the right specs our run out is good so we’re gonna go ahead and throw our rear main seal on we got a brand new one from Nissan and then Mickey’s actually going to paint the

Back of the engine block this is the one part of the block that has not been painted because you couldn’t get to it when the engine’s on the stand so let’s get this thing on Foreign Crankshaft is fully installed and thrust feels good everything is where we need it to be our Ruby and seal is installed and we’re going to flip this block over our Gap and piston rings before we do that I got a little set of grub screws that are going to go into little

Galleries in the crankshaft and then we’ll be done flip it over start capping our rings and uh I’m gonna throw you guys up on the tripod for that we’ll get it done So right now I’m checking ring end Gap so what these are out of the box so the ring end Gap is a spec for the piston ring so how much play is in between the end of the ring so if you guys can see

It has an opening on one end now the end Gap is important because having too much end Gap you’ll have blow-by which is a lot of gas the combustion gas is going past the Piston down to the crankcase if you have too much it’ll have a low compressional lens cylinder and that’s

Not good and it’ll have a lot of blow by if you’re too tight what will happen is if the engine gets hot or leans out or is running too much boost the ring will expand if the ends will touch and then it’ll expand further and the ring will

Go up or go down and break Pistons so it’s very crucial to get the ring end Gap correct we’re going to be running the ring end Gap spec that they run over in Australia because they do a lot of RB engines here typically you’ll get a

Worksheet on the set of Pistons so like cast piss and enforgeous and a different ring in gaps so we’re going to go with the specs that these guys gave us because they’re really good at building herpes and they do it a lot so let’s get this thing together foreign Done so we set it at 19. if we get the 19 in there got a nice little bit of drag so it has a little bit of resistance if I grab a 20 it fits but it’s got some more pull and if I go for

A 21 it barely fits and if I pull on it it like lifts the ring out so we’re at about 19th out which is perfect that’s our top ring spec so we’re going to set our second compression ring to 21 and then this cylinder will be done oh Our piston rings are all sorted everything is good so now we’re going to start assembling our piston and connecting rod and then we’re going to put the rings on it get this block back on the stand and start dropping these in so this is an Italian RP connecting rod

And we’re going to be using Pistons by Italian RP I’ve never used a rotating assembly by them before so I’d be curious to see how it all comes together and if we like it or not so first thing we’re going to do is just a quick inspection make sure everything looks

Good on it I always like to inspect all the new parts as we get it to make sure that there are no errors in manufacturing or anything like that you have a wrist bin here so I’m going to check to make sure that everything slides nice some connecting rod sets

I’ve gotten have had little Burrs in the bushing here so this is actually a press fit bushing on the end of the connecting rod sometimes you’ll have a little Burr and you’ll have the wrist pin not sliding nice through so it’ll like get to the end it’ll get stuck and if that

Happens you just got to take a little piece of sandpaper and file the program so in this case Everything feels good slides nice through we’re gonna do the same thing with the Piston make sure it slides through the Piston nice which it does so like all the other forged

Pistons we have a set of circlips here so the circlip is going to go in the little Ridge on the inside and we’re going to pop that down we’re going to put our wrist pin through there and we’re going to orient the rods accordingly so on this piston you’ll see

The recess for the intake valves are a lot bigger than the recesses for the exhaust valve so these are directional Pistons this is the intake side there’s the exhaust side and I’m going to put our little bearing tangs on the intake side so that’s going to be our

Orientation essentially I hope got it backwards essentially like that so we’re going to start putting our circlips in Lube everything in the wrist pin get that all set up once I get our second pin in here we’ll be done we’re going to assemble all six then we’re going to

Throw piston rings on here then into the block they go There’s one done we got five more to go then we’ll start throwing them in the engine Thank you Crystals are reassembled everything went together really nicely and they looked beautiful so I went ahead and numbered each piston so we got one and two now the Pistons and rods themselves aren’t more specific but the Rings are so we got these rings for the board that

They’re going to be going into as soon as this ring set goes onto that piston this becomes cylinder one so I’ve got them all labeled out we’re gonna throw our rings on and then get this block back on a stand start dropping a bit Cylinder one is done These are ready to go in the engine before we put the engine block back on the stand I’ve got a set of oil Gallery plugs we have to install so when this block was disassembled for cleaning they took literally everything out all the freeze plugs these are brand new freeze

Plugs and then they drilled out a little press fit for the oil Gallery so they can clean this so this oil Gallery feeds a lot of things in the engine block and having that clean is essential so they’ve cleaned it they’ve tapped it so we can run some bugs in we’re going to

Put these in get this thing back on the stand Foreign Dropping pistons in so we’re gonna be doing one and six so we’re going to take the rod caps off drop the rod bearing at each and then we’re going to drop these into boards and then check our rod bearing clearance make sure everything’s good and then final assembly cylinder

One is cylinder section processor Pistons which means they share pretty much the same Journal orientation so these two Pistons are going up and down together all the time so we’re going to do those and then five and two are also sister pistons and then three and four

Of the same so we’re gonna go from the outside in and we’ll have all our Pistons oh All right there’s two in the hole Yeah foreign ERS one and six are in we’re at bottom dead center we have the Pistons pushed all the way down and these are the bottom of the rods right here so I’ve laid some plastic Edge on the journal again we’re going to be just like we did with the mains checking the bearing

Clearances now this crankshaft and this block have already been out the Machine Shop they’ve already inspected and measured everything and the rods are brand new and they’ve been measured at the factory so this is kind of like a double check just to make sure 100 that

We’re okay so we’re gonna drop the rod caps on Titan this little piece of green right there which is like a circle when we compress it it’s gonna get squished and then it’ll get like nice and wide and then we’ll measure how wide it is now if you have something that’s really

Tight it’s going to swish it more and it’s going to get wider or if it doesn’t get squished as much it’s going to be narrower in that which dictates what our bearing clearance look like so on our paper here we have a little measuring so

This is in thousands so you can see a lot of Squish really tight and as the clearance gets bigger as long as you get more clearance then the squish gets smaller so that’s pretty much essentially how the plastic is really so you have different color plastic gauges for different measurements you have some

That are bigger than this and some that are smaller than this so it just depends we’re going to drop these Rod caps on tighten them down and make sure we’re good and then if they are good we’ll Lube them up and be done stretches Running six went in nicely everything is perfect with them our bearing clearances are spot on so we’re going to move to two and five and then we’ll do three and four after thank you a rotating assembly is finished everything went together very nicely it feels really smooth which is good

Doesn’t hang up on any spots and it looks beautiful our bees are a little funky especially this one because this is a higher compression so we did the math and we should have about 9.3 to one compression on this thing the new Grady head is a fresh cylinder head casting

And so it sticks up a little bit above the deck and the cylinder head will make up that gap which is really cool so overall really nice setup looks good we got some oil to clean off but we’re gonna get to installing our oil pump now

We have a beautiful Phillip pump by PRP and a titanium Hardware kit to go with it which is really nice this thing is going to be amazing so this is a spline Drive most of the RVs will have two flat kind of grooves on the second the rest

Of it’s rounded so our crank has already been set up for spline drive that’s one of the things they did the machine shop this is going to make this pump a lot more resilient and not prone to the issues that the the flat Drive pumps have which is good so we’re gonna prime

The pump get it on the engine and then we’re going to start tackling our block brace which is next it’s over there but let’s get this thing thank you Foreign So this is a block brace it’s gonna add a lot of strength to the block itself and we’re pushing mad power it doesn’t come apart All right Black brace is installed so this component is a huge structure Improvement on the rb26 Block we’re using here or the rv25 block we’re using here in this case because we have an rv25 block on rb26 block not only is this going to stiffen up and block

Itself this also allows us to drop a all-wheel drive oil pan on our four wheel drive oil pan Which is an rb26 pin the 25s didn’t come with all-wheel drive or some of them didn’t at least this one did it so it doesn’t have any of the provisions for the all-wheel drive oil

Pan but this fixes that and it strengthens up the block which means we can put a lot more power through this thing without having to worry about it so we’ve got all of our Hardware is in on and torqued aside from these so these will actually go through the pen through

The block race into the block but for now because we have a little bit of silicone to let it dry out I have some Hardware it’s just kind of clamping it down to hold it in place so the next step is going to be installing the pump

Pickup so this is the pump pickup that comes with the kit so that’s Red Zone there this is actually from a stock pump pickup and I’ve locked the hose end off the two Bend well that shut we’re going to drill a hole in the middle and

Position that and weld it there now the important part about this is this needs to have a seven millimeter air gap between the top of this and the bottom of the oil pan so I’m going to cut this hole out we’re going to tack that in

Place and we’re going to go to measure it and make sure we have the clearance we need and then we’ll install it foreign Pickup about seven millimeters off the bottom of the pan and when we put the pan on I’m not going to be able to measure it so what I’ve got here is a glob of grease and this is actually a little bit taller than seven millimeters oh I just moved out let’s see where

We’re at that’s almost seven millimeters so this little thickness here is seven so what we’re going to do is leave that there we’re going to drop the pan on and then if it’s seven millimeters it’ll touch right there and then we’ll be money and if it doesn’t touch then we

Gotta move this whole assembly so I press this in but this can come up a little bit we’ll press it up retry and then if it smashes this completely and it’s just like flat and we have too much interference and that’s not good and then we’ll maybe cut some off of the

Pipe or whatever and then bring it down a little bit so let’s get our pan Which is heavy Bro that is so tall what is that that’s way too tall that was way too okay so we gotta cut this we gotta we gotta we gotta figure out a different technique I I thought this pole this pipe was going to be like within the range where we need to be but

It’s not so we’ve missed by like a lot so I’ve measured the depth of the oil pan and measured the deck height of the block with this so the top of our pump pick up here should be like here so I’m gonna wipe these two off set it where it

Needs to be and that’ll give us kind of our cut line and then we’ll re-weld it foreign A little bit of a process but we got our oil pickup height done and correct this thing is seven millimeters off the top which is good so we had a little bit of a range so we could go from about five to about eight eight and a half I chose

Seven because I was just like a solid Target number to hit and we got there so we’re good ready for oil pan now baby All right we’ve got all of our oil pan Hardware sorted we know where everything goes we know it’s going to go on and now it’s time to get our formula Place gasket on the oil pan drop this thing on get it bolted down we’re gonna have to let it

Cure for about a day before we can put oil in it and reprim the system but it should be good we can keep moving foreign So while we’re waiting for the pan to dry so I like to kind of take everything down and tighten them in kind of steps and take more time with it so it sets properly because while we’re waiting for it I’m going to keep going and we’re

Going to get our water pump on here which uses forming Place gasket as well we also have a beautiful Hardware kit from PRP these are titanium they’re very nice so we’re gonna get this thing packed down we’re also going to be using their alternative bracket kit so this is

Actually for an LS alternator instead of an rv26 one because it’s a little bit stronger that guy’s going to go out there on top of the water pump so we’re gonna get this thing glued down good We’re going to start installing our crank trigger kit so this is a 32 tooth PRP Trigger kit that we’ll be putting on Arby’s from the factory actually don’t have any orientation or any setup for crank trigger they only go off the cam so this is going to give us much better

Engine management you’ll let us know what the crankshaft is doing just give a more precise on the tuning side which is really cool so let’s get this thing on thank you We’re just about ready to throw the cylinder head on but we need to change some things in the block first mainly of these oil restrictors so this is an over 25 block so they have two restrictors so the rb26 has the rear one block so we’re

Going to put a zero restrictor in there and then we’re going to put a 1.1 restrictor here kind of uh again our old pressure where we need it to be so we’re going to change these install these and then we’ll drop for some of your headline so I’m going to take a punch

And we’re going to sync the old restrictors down All right so we’re gonna put one headset in the front one headset at the back drop our gasket on and then drop the cylinder head on so these are half inch so these are oversized compared to a factory head stud this is going to make it a lot stronger which is really nice

Got our gasket on this is a covering gasket I think they’re really cool this is actually not the first time we’ve used one on this channel we did one way back when we built Evans M3 but essentially I like these better than like a multi-layer steel gasket you’re

Less prone to leaking because you have more of a traditional gasket material on the outside which seals really well and then on the inside you have these steel fire rings and these have little grooves and then they’ll actually bite into the cylinder head and give a really strong

Seal so very strong performance gasket and yet it seals beautifully so we’re ready for our cylinder head We got our cylinder head on the rb26 and I’m putting our head studs in now and aside from this thing being an absolute UD why don’t you tell us a little bit about the cylinder head this is actually a really special cylinder head this is

One of the first to come from a Grady performance here in Irvine California this is their new head package program that is available to the public they’re also doing a turnkey engine program as well or a long block program that you can buy directly from greddy pre-built

So literally shows up on a crate you plop it in your car Plumb it and it’s good to go because we did have a block prepped by PRP we wanted to utilize the Grady head in conjunction with that so as you saw we’ve got an extremely domed

IRP piston and this head was cut to accommodate that and get us to a nine point was 9.3 1.3 compression ratio so this is actually an ideal scenario now one thing thing I want you guys to see and we’ll roll some b-roll for you guys from the machine shop that did the work

On this head you gotta see these ports they’re absolutely gorgeous paper thin in here where the air is going to divide as it goes in and then also the exhaust ports are also ported the valves everything has all been done it literally turns up here in a crate and

You plop it on now we do need to install our cams we are using a special cam in this car and that’s why they’re not installed when the head arrived we’re using a custom lift and duration that greddy prepared for us actually they’re actually sitting over here on the table

We’re gonna hold off on Advertising what those specs are for now but I will say that this is one of the most beautiful heads I’ve ever seen oh yeah yeah that’s insane what’s cool is they start with an original OEM Nissan head so this isn’t a used core that’s been you know cleaned

Up and and and refinished and resurfaced it’s actually straight from Nissan brand new head from the Heritage program which makes you rest easy at night knowing you’re not getting something that’s already got 40 50 100 a thousand miles on her is 30 years old yeah it’s not old

As dirt so what I can say is this is a piece of artwork in my eyes absolutely we’ve also had some other RV experts inspected and they’ve had very positive things to say about the machine work and the overall quality of the head so I’m

Excited I think this is going to flow we needed to flow to get to the horsepower figure that we’re after it’s really cool of Grady to provide this service because I know here in the states it’s not always easy to find a machine shop to do

This type of work so if you can phone them up straight away and actually just order this over the phone or online that’s pretty rad and just turns up at your door pop it on your prepped engine and you’re off and running everything looks beautiful on this thing the spring

The way they set up the buckets this is already configured for the camera we have so we don’t have to mess with any of the specking yeah the valving looks beautiful the machine work looks insane like it’s beautiful so if you take a close look in here you can see the the

Port work that’s been done the machine work that’s been done inside the intake ports here and the valve areas is absolutely gorgeous I mean this is something that only a real Gearhead can appreciate I have a stock head over here that we can take a closer look at so you

Guys can see the difference between what the intake ports look like on a stock head versus what they look like now that’s a stock kit you see how much meat and casting flat cast flashing and everything that’s in here how rough this surface area is you go look at the new

Grady head you’re going to see a nice smooth ported area and you’re also going to see that they’ve actually cut these back quite a bit and made them sort of paper thin and allow the air to flow through there nice and easy so in our eyes Grady did everything in their power

To maximize airflow in this head and that’s really the secret sauce to making a high horsepower engine is getting the air flowing into the chambers in an efficient manner and in high volumes so that you can make more boost and more power I’m happy to put this on the shelf

For a later build now that we’ve got the new beautiful Grady part on the engine foreign I’m dropping our head studs on I just got all of our washers on I’ve got this road nuts and I’m just finishing the last set and then we’ll start torquing

So sometimes these ARP stud kits can be a little bit annoying to install especially in the case of like an RV if you notice I don’t really have any room to get my fingers down there so you have your little Allen key so this Allen key

Will actually fit the stud that’s what I used to Snug them up you get a socket that fits the nut drop that on there a little bit of ARP sauce on the threads and on the on the mating surface and you hold the nut back you stick the Allen

Key in it and just drop it perfect alignment every time never have to get a pick down there you don’t have to try and drop it I’ve gotten these things jammed in between and it sucks so there you go Our cylinder had a stroke down I’ve got our block of TDC we’re going to get our camshafts installed now so I’m taking the cam caps off we actually have a set of titanium cam retainer bolt Hardware from PRP Runway thrown on a set of these Factory stop bolts and then we’ll get

Our camshafts on Foreign We got this which essentially the steel backing plate here gets replaced by this so this is a much sleeker component it’s not a dust cover per se like the other one but this will have our cam timing marks and it’ll hold the main seal or

The cam seals in which is what we want it’s a nice Sleek look so these are our timing marks out on the side so I’m going to give this on get it tight and then we’ll put our cam gears on and start timing this thing foreign Gears on we got our backing plate on to allow us to time the engine now it’s time to install our cam gears so of course we’re running a Grady cylinder head we have to run a greater cam gears we’ve got an intake and exhaust here the nice thing about these is that they’re

Adjustable if we want to change the power curve or add torque or add power we can adjust these when we’re on the dyno so really beautiful product they’re always hand assembled so we’re gonna have to go through and re-tighten everything which is good I got some red

Locks that we’re going to use so let’s get this thing on let’s get this RB time foreign take side cam gear by gretion and we’re going to put the exhaust side on now but we’re going to be adding this so this is for our PRP camshaft trigger position

Kit and this is going to replace the Factory cast system that’s on this car so that’s going to go right about there and then we have a beautiful plate which we’ll get into later that bolts to the front of this after this having belt mounted stuff is on that’ll pick it up

And this like the crank position sensor is a much better more refined way to manage and track what your camshaft is doing so we’re gonna install this kit on now and then uh keep going foreign Cam gears on and they’re timed it’s time to throw our timing belt on we got a beautiful blue ready timing belts here you guys know we love our Grady blue so let’s get this thing on Virgin is timed everything spins beautifully so we’re going to drop our cam covers on and then we’ll start dressing the front of the engine Next up we have one of my personal favorite parts to go on any engine build and that’s a fluid number this is a high performance damper over a factory damper it is better in literally every single way it looks better it performs better it balances everything better and it’s

Just a really nice part to have on every engine so we’re going to throw one on this here rb26 Thank you there’s a second piece to our PRP cam trigger kit this is the cast bracket that replaces the ugly Factory one This is an oil filter relocation kit by Grady the R32 oil filter on the rb26s in such a terrible spot it is so brutal to try and change oil on one of these things so we’re going to add this first of all this piece looks freaking insane

Super Rad it doesn’t look that bad when you’re just staring at it well first of all this is your front fit right so trying to get in from underneath when this is all has axles and shafts in it it’s a pain and then you’ll see when we

Get the intake manifold on it just absorbs everything so it’s brutal so with this kit it’s gonna go like that and it’s going to allow us to run dash 10 out wherever we want and put the filter wherever we want the cooler wherever we want and make it way easier

To do a Maintenance and Service on this thing so really beautiful part excited to get this thing on and it looks red I love opening Hall Tech stuff this feels so good inside so now on the list now that that’s out of the way foreign that’s a knock sensor so this will detect if the engine knocks which it should really shouldn’t but if it does this is here to protect us So what we have here is a PRP cylinder head drain so this is one of the components I was talking about we’re going to be doing on this rb26 so this guy is going to go on the back of the cylinder head and add a drain port for

The oil and the coolant so we’re actually going to knock these two freeze plugs out and that’s going to slide in right there so this has some O-rings on it that’ll go in there we need to tap one of these holes and this guy will go

On so this gives the coolant and the engine oil another place to escape out of the cylinder head again especially when we put like a like the PRP belt pump as a high flow pump so it’s going to pump a lot more oil up we need to get

All that oil out and this PRP head drain is going to work with that so from here we’re going to run a line probably down to the tank or the sump the oil pan and it’s going to give it all another chance to escape and kind of get out of the way

So this is a very beautiful component and it’s going to help us achieve the high horsepower numbers to keep this thing running safe so let’s get to it Thank you we got our cylinder head drained configured that’s all good pretty much everything on this side of the engine aside from lines so the coolant lines the oil lines pretty much everything here is configured so we’re gonna go ahead and throw the intake manifold on got a beautiful set of titanium PRP

Intake manifold studs we’re going to throw all these on then we’ll get our beautiful new remade in the USA intake manifold This is it we’re finished however I want to put the throttle bodies on I want to put our gradient intake manifold on I want to get our r-tech turbo manifold and our Garrett turbine just to see what this thing’s gonna look how y’all dressed up on the stand so I think we’re

Gonna do that this thing turned out epic so far Now that we’re done on the intake side we’re going to move on to our exhaust side get our beautiful Arctic manifold and get the scare turbo on here foreign 900 turbo my friend oh baby that’s what I’ve been waiting for That’s going to be at rrb 26 is complete this was the first rb20 series I’ve ever built had a little bit of fun building it I enjoyed it I thought it was definitely a fun motor a little different than what I’m used to and this is definitely not your traditional rb26

Build this thing is a little over the top it is it is this thing should make some good power and best of all it looks for you it does look beautiful I wish you give a huge thank you to our partners that have been on board with

This project because this is a few months in the making here behind the scenes getting everything actually collated here ship from Australia ship from other parts of the country all culminating into what Quinn has built here which is absolutely gorgeous and so we’d like to say thank you to PRP over

In Australia ready who obviously has a lot to do with this with the head package and all these other really nice blue bits up front we also have fluid dampers least spec for the beautiful oil pan and some setup Ian from remade in the USA with the intake here our Tech

Performance Garrett turbos what else we got we got IRP Pistons RP connecting rods I think that’s about it for the engine I think you about nailed everything yeah so I also want to say a huge thank you to motul USA they’ve been behind this build since the minute they

Heard about it and they provide us with all of the fluids for this so you might have seen Quinn using some of that thank you motool for jumping on board and trusting us uh with this build and with your products we’re really excited about this but it’s time for this thing to

Find its way into a car we’re done with it here in our shops thank you guys so much for watching as always don’t forget to like comment subscribe let me know down in the comment section which engine we should build next I’ve got a couple

Of ideas of what we should do but we’re going to be building another engine here very soon thank you guys so much for watching we’ll see you guys in the next video Foreign
