Not sure if you have a coupe or not but Iím going to start a part out fairly soon as I got a new car. I have a TBW one in silver if youíre interested

Canít find solid answer to crank question

Whatís up yíall. I got a blown rev up engine with rod knock. Seeing as theyíre hard little buggers to come by Iím gonna rebuild it on a budget and give it to my brother.
My questions is, Will internals from a DE fit right into the rev up no problems? Specifically the crankshaft. I know the pistons have a slightly different deck height to accommodate the different heads and the rods have different style bolts. But I donít know anything about the Rod itself or the crank. Are they the same specs? Iíve searched and not found anything addressing this here or at the Z forums.

Thanks

The only differences on the long block is the oil pump and the baffle in the oil pan, possibly different rods because some folks have bent standard DE rods when boosted when others have pushed the same WHP on the rev-up without issue. Pistons are the same, crank is the same. They may have different head bolts but they're TTY so you'll be replacing them anyways.

Get ahold of a 350Z, G35, or M35 VQ35DE and use the long block. Buy gaskets, head bolts, oil pump, possibly water pump, timing chain kit. Flow test clean/replace injectors as needed and you should be good to go.

If you had a lot of miles on the existing motor it would probably be cheaper to just keep searching for a low mile replacement revup because you're still going to need about $800 worth of stuff to get it all back together unless you're reusing a lot of components.

Car-part.com can help find stuff semi-locally

thanks for the reply cleric, Iíve already got a gaskets, seals and head bolts kit that ima use. The crank it has now is scored and the rod has some imperfections Iím looking to swap out but the block is otherwise fine.

Going for a regular 287 DE block is gonna need me to drill out some holes on the back of it im trying to avoid. But since you say the internals are the same fitment wise then Iím probably going to do at least a crank and rod swap. My bro is probably gonna keep it NA so rod strength isnít a problem at this point. The oem pistons do actually have a different deck height so using de pistons in a rev up will have slightly lower compression in that cylinder so Iím probably going to get one to swap it out to keep compression consistent across all chambers. Thanks for the response! Iím estimating around $500 here for this at the end of the day with a salvaged crank, rod, and maybe new piston.

You must have somehow ended up with a Nismo S1 engine from a Fairlady then because the pistons should be identical.

Why have any sticker on your car?

Well thank you for your support my friend! I'm going to submit one of these to a sticker printing place and see how much money it costs. If it's ridiculous then I'll abandon ship otherwise I'll post the result in the future.
