  • Tune up Guide RB20DET GTS-T

    Ok all the info are listed on the site, but everywhere and in diffrent section
    Just to make sure and a one reference post instead of 20
    Here my list. Corect me if I,m wrong.

    So Tune up for GTS RB20DET

    Sparks plugs; NGK BCPR6 -11 For stock boost
    NGK BCPR6- 8 For 12 lbs boost

    Oil Filter: 240SX K serie engine
    EDIT the 300zx fuel filter wont fit, it doesnt have a proper elbow and the fuel line will bend and pinch itself.

    Oil: 4.6L Capacity.
    Commun use 10W30 Synthetic Red Line
    But everyone as is personnal favorite for oil.

    Fuel Filter: 92-95 Altima - Nissan J30
    Z32 300ZX TT Look to fit too(with a longer fuel line)

    Manuel Tranny: 2.7 Liter capacity
    80W90 or 75W90

    Front Rotor: 90-94 Z32 300ZX TT

    Rear Rotor: 90-94 Z32 300ZX TT

    Brake Pads Front: Z32 300ZX TT

    Brake pads Rear: Z32 300ZX TT

    Bleed the brake oil: Dot 3 or 4
    For hardcore, solo racing and swap for bigger brake use DOT5.1 or Motul RBF600
    DO NOT USE DOT 5

    Good thing to do while under the hood:
    1- Clean MAF

    2- Inspect the coil RED DUST

    3- Chek for oil leak

    I thought the tranny used 3L of oil.

      if you have dot 3-4 do not mix with dot 5

      also dot 5 is silicone base which may attack rubbers

      I don't have any info on the skyline though if it's good or not ops:

        yea brake fluid should be 5.1....5 is silicone (non-hydroscopic) and will wreck the seals + cause rust inside brake components.

        the 300zx fuel filter wont fit, it doesnt have a proper elbow and the fuel line will bend and pinch itself.

          I ended up getting a fuel filter for a 1996 honda civic and just put fittings on it, the bracket to hold the canister on the inner fender can be found at a local junk yard and its a STR (well now called BDL) but it has a replaceable cartrage with will deem itself worthy in the future. I decided to go full braided stainless steel fuel lines, but even just having the fittings on it would work as well. I will post up pics when I have everything setup.

              Looking at the specs on that webpage, no noticeable diff in specs other than the one step down for the heatrange.

              I found this info after I took apart the coil cover ect, to check out what plugs were in mine. 1990 May Build GTS-T Type M, and it has PFR6A -11 .

              Cheers.

                  i used the 300zx fuel filter and left 1 bolt out of the bracket so the fuel filter sits at a 45 degree angle instead of straight up and down.

                    Anyone know how much fluid the automatic transmission uses?

                        So which is the OEM brake fluid?

                        DOT 3, 4 or 5.1?

                        I am particularly looking for GTS4.
                        In the end the gov't will do as they please and if they do kill the 15 yr rule life will go on, and we will find other cars readily available to pour our hearts and wallets into. The Skyline is a great car, but its not the only one. It might be a case of easy come easy go.------------- JZ

                          anyone in calgary area that is looking for good prices on parts should check out

                          PAR AUTO in airdrie. He is consistantly cheaper than anywhere else with the same parts as they have. For example the fuel filter for a 93 altima was $12.34. Rear wheel studs are $1.30 each (instead of 2 something through nissan) and an O2 sensor is $120.

                          If your in NE calgary its worth the drive for the money if your buying larger more expensive items.

                            In my GTS-4, I have DOT 4 brake fluid.

                            The best, is to flush all the old fluid and put new one.
                            No worry for a long time after doing that.
                            Motul and Redline are really a good choice for brake fluid.
