Nissan RB30 SOHC 3L engine built and tuned by JPC making over 1200hp on
Ethanol fuel. The engine still retains a factory block and crank.
Improvements come from a custom JPC turbocharger, manifolding, roller rockers and cam
gear. Fuel is fed via ID2000cc injectors and an Autronic computer system.
This engine has previously run 8.79 at 160.25mph (with less power) in a

Rb30det in a classic Datsun Z
I thought long and hard in daily driven this 240SX with the RB 30 and I'm
impressed with how smooth and new car like this motor is it runs great the
L 28 ET is a great classic motor but with all the power I'd like to have
and the ease at which that power is made with the RB 30 I can't help but
want that motor in my Z I've blown 4 L 28's they've been stock bottoms with
my ported P90 head and Isky cam but I want what I think is too much daily
power out of a motor that is pushing its limits to give that to me I like
how 25 pounds of Boost feels with
the L motor the RB is currently at 12 pounds and feels so so good there I
can't help but have dreams thinking of what a little more Boost would feel like on the 8000 RPM Fire
breathing monster on the L motor I'm worried that my methanol will always
work when it's supposed to the RB of course has crossflow head technology
so no methanol is required I still have that classic feel I hope with the
RB 30 because there are not many here in the states on the streets anyway
so it in itself is kind of rare and a classic also I guess.
lol..... i "voice" text that whole thing

1971 Datsun 510 - Jay Leno's Garage
Jay Leno's Garage
1972 Datsun 240Z run. (One last good time before I sold it)
Right before I sold it...
Clicking noise is a leak in the balancing tube (welded day after this
video) Some sloppy shifts due to slack in the rear end and un-adjusted
clutch with cracked clutch arm bracket.
I loved/love this car! So much fun to drive...
