Is The Engine BLOWN In My New NISSAN Skyline GT-R?

  Shikime 91,533


21 ditë më parë

I bought a 1990 Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R in Phoenix, Arizona. Then babied it 1,011 miles back home. I thought the engine was hurt after it made one good highway roll pull and started running way worse. It's time to find out, compression testing every cylinder of the RB26, scoping them, leak down tests... another episode of engine science! Then we'll swap all the ignition system to a much more modern and reliable setup and see if it get's any better. There's plenty more to fix on this old Godzilla.

Cylinder PSI is weird. Stock saturn is 190. My built engine is 215. But my blazer with WAY more torque is not much over 100 per cylinder

If you spray WD40 around the inlet gasket area you should find out if your gaskets are shot giving you a rough idle.

RB26 is not at all bullet proof. The early engines have a short oil pump drive and wears. they split the block down both sides at the head face along the bolt holes. I've had four of em and they were all broken. The ends of the valve guides will break off and go into the cylinder. Rough running is commonly down to inlet manifold gaskets. I had 3 R32 GTR's and every time I drove them, something would break, start making a noise or leak!! You made the right move getting that new loom.. they are always knackered on the old cars.

Jr, when you have a giant turbo and your car is smoking and leaking oil, the first thing you do is check the giant turbo. Take off the intercooler and check how much oil is in there.

Its still possible to be a turbo seal leak. That carbon build up is from oil leaking from the turbo most likely.

Cool fix so does the race clutch work better not that the engine responds better?? ... So I guess the turbo must be eating the oil?

Did you check the crankcase pressure for the idle searching issue? I could be the oil filler cap gasket. I had that same issue with a turbo Volvo, a turbo Audi and a Mitsubishi. All were oil filler cap seals gone bad.

Get rid of the Apexo PowerFC, that is very outdated junk. It will kill your engine. Replace it with something more modern, Haltech would be my recommendation.
