[YesAuto Wonderful Car Life] For classic car enthusiasts, the biggest difficulty in the process of repairing a classic car is not finding accessories. I have a deep understanding of this. However, for some Japanese fans, the next thing to hear is definitely great news-Nissan Motor Company has restarted production of RB26 engines.
The RB26 series engine includes the normal version RB26DETT and the improved version RB26DETT N1. This series of engines first appeared in 1989 as the power unit of the GT-R R32. Among them, DETT means D-double overhead camshaft, E-electronic fuel injection, TT-twin turbo. The maximum power and torque of the early RB26DETT engine was 280 hp and 253 N·m. After improvement, it reached 280 hp and 392 N·m in the later period. It can be seen that its maximum power is always around 280 hp, but this is not the RB26 engine. The true strength is restricted by the “gentleman's agreement” between Japanese automakers.
The RB26 series engine has a long service life, and it appears on the Nissan GT-R series R32, R33, and R34 produced between 1989 and 2002. Due to its high strength and great potential for modification, it is regarded as a good modification product by many Japanese performance controllers. It is not uncommon for civilians to modify the RB26 engine to more than 1000 horsepower. It is also because of this that this engine is classic enough to allow manufacturers to make 10 Choose to re-produce after a few years.
In fact, this is not the first time that Nissan has resumed production of classic car parts. As early as a few years ago, it produced GT-R R32 engine peripheral parts and chassis parts. At the end of 2018, R33 and R34 models were also included in the list of resuming production parts. , And the re-commissioning of the entire engine is the first time for the Nissan brand. At present, the brand-new RB26 engine can only be purchased from local dealers in Japan. The official price is 170,000 yen for the cylinder block and 187,000 yen for the cylinder head.
