Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

  • No doubt many people will have an idea of how they think this should be done so the comments section will probably get hectic. Try and be calm with each other - there's enough negativity in the world already and we don't need to fill every comment section on youtube with vomit do we? On another note, with the news this week that MotorTrend is leaving the platform, a lot of people have been asking us - what is the future of MCM on IRcloud? Everything you need to know is right here: mightycarmods.com/blogs/news/who-is-going-to-pay-for-it

    • My brother did a rb20det conversion in a 260z and it was such a great car. I can only imagine what an rb26det would be like. Keep up the entertaining work guys.

  • If it is based on "Bosch" maybe RB26 is in German "Reihen Bensin 26" or in English "Strait petrol 26" because it is a Strait 6 cilynder and the 26 is 2600cc.

  • It would have been cool if you guys had keept it AWD

    Josh SwartJosh Swartپیش سال
    • It would have been an absolute nightmare to do that. They would have to place the engine in a way that would line the front diff up with the front wheels, reengineer the axles, as well as majority of the system, and then they would need to run same size wheels/tires between front and back wheels (the RB AWD system can only spin front and back wheels at the same rate).

  • Such a goofy law! Asbestos made every product better! Now of coarse if it goes airborne of coarse it's dangerous But, if coated or sealed, painted, then it's completley safe! I wish that they would just seal asbestos avoiding its hazzards! Look at old linoleum flooring! It was tough as nails and lasted for ever where as newer stuff is so soft and just junk compared to the old stuff! I really feel that it made stuff better it just needs sealed! Look at brakes as well ! Ray bestos ! Again another product made better by the asbestos! I may very well be the only advocate for it but yeah!

  • So it never came to mind to have the engine and gearbox stripped down to parts and media blasted clean in Japan then ship them in in pieces? Now your cutting up a classic to fit in a wrong engine.
