RB25 VS. RB26
We were faked out when we learned Omar’s S14 is actually running an RB25DET instead of Godzilla’s true heart. “Reason for the RB25 is because it was more affordable at the time,” he tells us. “My motor cost $2,200 versus the RB26 at around $4,700. It wasn’t worth it to me personally, and I was already getting the RB25 rear-wheel-drive transmission and oil pan. Plus, RB25 parts are easier to find.” As for the RB26 valve cover, Omar scored it from a gentleman who was stationed in Japan and had brought back a few Skyline motors with him. A Facebook message, $200 cash later, and it was sent to his local chrome shop before it was installed underneath his hood.
