People often ask about the potential mechanical failures of the RB26 specifically with R32's. It is common knowledge that the Achilles heel of the R32 RB is the oil pump setup. There is speculation between the failure being between gear teeth that are too thin or engagement issues between the pump drive and crankshaft.
However, this problem was only prevalent in GTR's produced from 1989 to August of 1991. This particular GTR has been swapped with an RB26 from an R33. The R33 RB26 features an updated crank collar design for proper fitment and clearance as well with an updated harmonic balancer design which prevents excessive vibration at high RPMs which has been known to cause failures on early R32 RB's.
The motor swapped into this car is very clean and boasted 155-160 psi across all 6 cylinders when compression tested. The motor itself is unmodified and is paired with upgraded Mines intakes and updated intercooler piping from HKS. A heat wrapped test pipe and Trust cat back exhaust are fitted for a louder and deeper tone.
Tein coilovers provide stiffer more responsive handling and steel braided brake lines are ran to freshly painted black calipers. The front end has N1 front bumper vents and a hood lip for a more aggressive look. The whole exterior is very clean with minimal corrosion on the rear quarter panels and driver side C pillar area. A D1 steering wheel replaces the standard worn out cracking OEM steering wheel and the shift boot and e-brake boot feature matching red stitching. This car is a great platform for anyone wanting a clean reliable GTR for any purpose.
