Engine Rebuild

So here is the skinny on the SR20DET rebuild…

We found a lot of problems when the motor was pulled. The oil pump/front cover/seal was leaking, the head gasket was weeping on the front and back, the water pump was super notchy, etc. A bolt had backed out of the power steering pump and eaten into the pulley, so that was about to turn into a disaster. Not to mention the fact that the stock T25 turbo was letting go. I have been collecting the necessary parts for a proper rebuild for several months now, and I almost have everything engine related that I need. Here is a list of what I have ready to install:


  • Tomei Expreme Turbo Manifold
  • D-Max Catback Exhaust
  • GReddy Intake Manifold
  • Deatschwerks 650cc Injectors
  • GReddy Suction Kit
  • Z32 MAF
  • S15 GT28 Spec R Turbo
  • DIF turbo lines
  • HKS Actuator
  • Cusco Motor Mounts
  • Peak Performance Transmission Mount
  • NISMO Clutch Line
  • NISMO Slave Cylinder
  • ACT StreetLite Flywheel
  • NISMO Thermostat
  • Apexi 1.1mm Head Gasket
  • ARP Head Studs
  • Tomei Rocker Arm Stoppers
  • DIF Coolant Temp Sensor Housing
  • GReddy Lightweight Pulleys

OEM Replacement:

  • Coil Packs
  • Oil Pump/Front Cover/Front Seal
  • Water Pump
  • Pitwork Belts
  • Complete Turbo Gasket Kit
  • Intake Manifold Gaskets
  • OEM Clutch Fan (Removing electric fans)
  • PCV Valve
  • S14 Oil Pickup/Gasket
  • Flywheel Bolts
  • Z32 Fuel Filter

I still need to place one more order from NissanParts.cc for a lot of transmission gaskets, as well as a complete OEM timing chan kit. I should make that order later this week. Here are some pics of the parts I have collected:
