The power of a R32 GTR engine

How much power could you get out of a R32 GTR engine (RB20DETT)?

um? I'm confused! (not uncommon though) gtr is not the rb20dett, its the rb26dett. i aint sure if you mean gts-t r32 (rb20det), or the gtr (rb26dett)?

If you really mean the gtr? then your looking at amazing potential from standard block. 480kw+

Well, if you put a turbo the size of a washing machine on it, you could probably get more than enough power to snap your transmission. Wanna be a little more specific?

yup

R32 GTS-T = RWD, RB20DET (still a great engine and can be modified easily)

R32 GT-R = AWD, RB26DETT (the newer rb26's are the same, only minor upgrades were done for efficiency and emissions).

the power u can get out of all the RB's is phenomenal, but the tranny will start giving in. like the others said, u need to specify some more.

Okay, if you are talking about the RB26DETT, the sky is the limit if you have that much money. The RB26DETT in the R34 GTR V-Spec II skyline can get over 1000hp, but with ALOT of money. And, yes the tranny would die on you pretty easily. I'm just quoting the others, haha. Anyways, HP does not matter, cause there are alot of other factors you have to think about. Like how the HP is transfered to the wheels. The skyline has evolved alot since the R32, so you cant compare, the R33 and R34 is equipped with different types of LSD's i think. And the ATTESA system, so if you are planning to go above 600hp, i would advise alot of non-hp increasing upgrades, like cam-shafts, flywheels, etc, etc.

actually, the r32, r33, and r34 ALL came with the ATTESA-ETS system. in fact, it was the R32 that first came out with a V-Spec II model, in 1990 or 91 i believe (cant remember exactly). also, the first R33 GT-R came with an RB25DETT engine which has just a little bit less potential than its bigger brother. it was a bit later that the R33 was equipped with the RB26DETT (i have no idea why nissan even lowered the displacement just to increase it again, n i think it was one year after the R33 model was released).


all 3 engines hold alot of potential, u can even use the bigger 2 crankshafts in the RB20 and their pistons and connecting rods if u want in order to increase displacement to around 2.4L.
