RB25 VS. RB26

Super Street - - Superstreetgarage.com -

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.
