coldstart rb25det s13.mp4
Cold start and drive to the store of my 1994 S13 convertible with an RB25DET. Specs: BONE STOCK RB25det, series 1. Stock sidemount i/c. RB20 trans, stock 4.08 open diff. Stock brakes and suspension, stock bodywork, stock rims, complete with hooptymobile body kit (duct taped top.) I did all work myself, including making engine mounts (modified top hat upper mounts, modified S13 crossmember.) I did all wiring myself as well. Driveshaft is stock D21 4x4 regular cab shortbed , lenghtened 1 inch with the smaller input yoke to match rb20 trans. (if I had rb25 trans the driveshaft would have been a bolt-up.) I used this due to the larger, greasable U joints (same as chevy 1500) I had to swap the pinion flange from the C200 out of the D21 pickup (larger bolt circle) but spline count and diameter are identical between C200 straight axle and R200 IRS pumpkin. As you can see in the video, the car actually cold starts with minimal cranking due to me wiring it correctly (most people wire the idle-up solenoid which is used to idle up when power steering switch or a/c is engaged, hot all the time, which results in engine idle of about 1100rpm when warm.) My engine idles at 650 rpm when warm, like nissan intended. All my gauges work and are accurate (at least as much so as stock gauges can be...speedo is within 3-4mph and tach is within 200rpm) Temp gauge works...takes about 8 to 10 minutes for that big lump of cast iron to get hot enough to move the gauge needle. To all the ppl who think I didn't go fast enough, I'm on city streets with 35mph (sometimes 25mph) speed limits, and very bumpy, full of potholes. As you can see I did a few zero to sixty+ mph runs. (top of 2nd gear) End of october is bad time to mess around, cops are everywhere. To all the people who think the car is "slow" compared to most RB swaps, keep in mind that 1)I didn't launch hard (no traction anyway, got wheelspin in 2nd gear up to about 60mph) 2)STOCK MOTOR, NO MODS other than Exhaust 3) it's a convertible and weighs over 3100lb with me in it 4) and being one hand is holding my phone not much room for countersteering and shifting, as this car gets loose quick. As you guys *and gals* can see the engine has plenty of low end torque as well, which helps it get nearly 26mpg overall when shortshifting (not to mention it sounds almost like a diesel truck lol) and is way more enjoyable to drive "normally" than any SR. Thanks for watching!
