this is what i been searching for for the last few days...... i was more interested in this :

RB25 swap into an S13http://forums.nicoclub.com/zerothread?id=74575

i knoe there are other post but mostly in bits and pieces but since this is pretty good write up i thought i check it out ...... noticed that the date created was last yr 4/04 more then a yr ago i was wondering if there are any updates to this since swaps are more common and maybe even ways of cutting cost without sacraficing anything...

The service manual for the R33 seems to be not working anymore. Anyone have one that they can post up? RB25DET to be exact.

Nissan GTR RB26DETT ARP2000 head stud kit - 202-4207

For the Main-Studs, we usually use the SR20 Kit - 202-5402

For the Rod Bolts, the VG30 should work - 202-6004

this is a wireing guide for wireing a rb20det into a 95 s14. i dont know how different it is for the 96 and up but i will post a write up after i do mine if there is any differences. i spent a few weeks looking off and on for this and found it on page 37 of a google search, so enjoy.

Hi i know im a newbie, let me just say im blown away by all the info on here thanks! But I cant seem to find any info on if the RB tranny will clear s13 zenki chassis. Should I use the RB tranny or go with the ka? Also I have read about the mounts and I want to make sure it clears too. For a number of reasons im trying to avoid cutting the firewall if possible. Any info would be excellent!

good job going to the stickies. Bad job posting it here.

No prob, there is a FAQ sticky that should have this info in it.

However, the RB's have different transmissions including dimensions. your KA tranny will not bolt on to the RB. Most of the time 9.5/10 you'll need to hammer in the firewall to clear the edge of the bell housing and starter hump.

Depending on what route you go for mounting, OEM or kit, will determine what mounts are used and such.

Alittle more research and you're on your way.

i cant add to the belt page, so ill put it here.

goodyear gatorback # 4030325 for RB25 P/S. shorter than what i had, but i just installed it, and it works. not to tight, IMO. i have 3 rib crank and 3 rib p/s pulley.

BTW, i used Kamin's part # for the Gates belt, and went to Murray's. they didnt have it in the system. so they cross refrenced it, and i ended up with the goodyear.

its awesome. the packaging has a 'nascar performance' logo on it. for teh winn.

Front/center countershaft bearing for rb25det, z31t, and z31 trans

NTN - 7E-HR0724

Took my bearing guy awhile to figure this out, the number on the bearing that is already in the trans is obsolete.

When swapping from a Auto KA to a RB20DET can you re use the original drive shaft of the auto ka?

This sticky is really great & thank you. I have scanned through it before & found some help to some of my questions, but now that I finally have a RB26 it has been very helpful.

And the R32 service manual... priceless!

I couldnt come up with anything in the search, and I hope I can get an answer in here.

What are the ways to tell an R32 spec RB26 from an R33 spec?I know to look for the grey plug by the fuel rail, and the oil cap, but are there any other ways to tell?
