RB30 Engines

Here is a little something about me...... I love the RB30 Engine !! If you know what I am talking about we already have something in common. The last 4 cars I have owned have had the RB30 including the one i have now and all of them were wicked cars! Including the one I have now. I can't praise them enough lol!! One the things I enjoy most in life is driving my car, with the beats up loud........ If anyone wants to share their praise for the RB30 with me go for it!! I am currently saving so I can really hot mine up! Go the RB30 lol!!!!

hmm the rb 30 eh, well during my time i have built many. they have many good qualities like most jap engines but once performance work is done to them problems start. However they are great to work on and respond well to forced induction. The best thing about them is part are cheap and available.

I'm not into cars and revamping the motors myself... Nonetheless, looking it up on answers.com, the RB30 looks like it's a Nissan engine. It says:

The motor is a cast iron block with a alloy head, and a SOHC. Three models of 3.0 L RB30 were produced, the carburetted RB30S, the non-turbo RB30E and the RB30ET. The carburetted RB30S was fitted to Nissan Patrols and develops 100 kW and 223 Nm of torque. The RB30E was fitted to the Australian and South African Nissan R31 Skyline and the Holden VL Commodore (Australia). This engine had four different outputs ranging from 114 kw to 140 kw depending on the model it was fitted to. The Turbo version was fitted to the VL Commodore. It was good for 150 kW."

The website mentions variations of RB30 - RB30DET and RB-X GT2 -though from what I can gather, the DET one is apparently not considered an official Nissan engine, but rather one that can be bored to 3 litres.

Yes it is a Nissan Engine.......... and used in the holden VL, one of the things that makes a VL very popular! i have had two VL's but now I have a 1986 Nissan Skyline - manual (of course)with extractors. It only has 170 000 ks on the clock and i basically really love it! All I need are some round taillights !

You should drop a RB26DETT into your skyline... they hammer, let me tell ya...!
I had a R32 GTR off its tits... till i hit a roo at about 160! not much left now... but it was fun while it lasted....
I have a 04 YZFR1 now... much faster!

The RB30 will never be out of date. how dare you! i am a single mum and a student and i don't have much money. of course i don't own a ridiculously fast car. but for what its worth, my baby, my 1986 skyline is THE BEST. its nice to drive, faster than plenty of things and it will do until i have a modern skyline. so don't stick your nose up at a CLASSIC engine which will always hold its ground in a conversation with hot guys at a party. Are you offering to buy me a better car, mr worldly? no? well then read this boys..........DON"T BOTHER POSTING HERE IF YOU ARE NOT A DIE HARD FAN! START YOUR OWN RB30 BASHING BLOG so i don't have to read it.
