Nissan S15.3 drift car built for the EDC by James Jeffery and David Reid of Performance Parts and Services Ltd in the UK. Fitted with an RB30, forged rods, forged pistons, flowed and ported RB26 head, Tomei MHG, Tomei pullies. Blown by a Kenne Bell 2.8H twin screw charger. Twin 044's feeding 1000cc Sard injectors. Custom charger inlets and outlets, custom Exhaust manifold, modified plenum blah, blah, blah...basically lots of work ! Not 100% finished yet though as can be seen in the movie.

RB30 twincharge - street test @ 300rwhp
First drive of my RB30DETR on the street. Running 9psi, making 303rwhp. some build progress pics and information can be found here: http://www.performanceforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67207968&highlight =twincharged the car has a 3L DOHC inline six, a GT4088 turbocharger (1.34 A/R rear housing) and an Eaton M90 Supercharger. the piece of junk Boost guage i have there is reading incorrectly, it's on 9psi the whole way. the loud roaring noise indicates when full Boost is reached. it even makes full Boost in 1st gear :-) the engine resides in a VL commodore but i am considering transferring the whole drivetrain into something lighter like an S13 silvia or 180SX down the track. stay tuned for more vids when i put a stronger gearbox in it and up the Boost. 450rwhp sounds like a good number to aim for with the stock cams.

How to build an RB30/25 engine
Just a simple build of putting an RB30 bottom end underneath the RB25 cylinder head! No you don't have to use the VCT, its optional and I don't use it. If its for a skyline, you can use the engine mounts, clutch, harmonic balancer, idler pulleys and knock sensors. They all bolt in. parts list and rough pricing Engine......mates backyard......$150 turbo..........................ebay......$280 Inlet manifold..............ebay......$400 Oil restrictors..............ebay......$9 each Timing belt.................ebay......$150 Head gasket..............ebay.....$220 turbosmart W/Gate...ebay.....$400 Nitto clear cover.........ebay....$120 JECS 660cc injectors..ebay.....$400 Bunnings polishing kit..............$15 The look on peoples faces when you're modifying your own pistons haha.....
