So I finally brought the Skyline home and started working on it yesterday… I tried mounting the engine in but that did not go too well. From what I read online (afterwards, of course) to mount an RB25 into an R32 you need to use the RB20 engine mount brackets and engine mounts. Clearly this RB25 still has RB25 engine mount brackets and R33 GTS-t engine mounts. So now I need to find some brackets and although I was going to use stock S13 mounts for now, I guess I may as well order the right mounts at this time.
I also picked up this Greddy front-mount intercooler core from my friend, Mike. Thanks dude!
Here is a picture of the engine. As you can see, one of the cam gears has been snapped off from a front end collision, so the cylinder head is going to have to come off and get sent into the machine shop to be checked out and then I can re-install the new cam I have for it.
I’ll need to relocate the battery to my trunk…
I worked on this car well into the night, only to find out that the mounts were not compatible. Bummer.
