    Good night for everybody! I m new on this forum.
    I m looking for information about rb30e and rb30et engines, but i couldn't find anything about it in this branch of forum.
    I want to create rb30det or rb30dett engine in future using rb26 cylinder head.
    Any information could help. It might be articles, service manuals etc. Also information about differences between rb30 and rb26 blocks etc.
    Also i need an information about cost of this rb30 engine or only block in Australia and is it real to send it in Russia, where i live =).
    Thanks for everybody in advance.

    Most people over here bolt an RB25 head to the RB30 block because it is a lot cheaper and more common than the RB 26 head. RB25 head is still a twin cam four valves a cylinder head but had hydraulic lifters that dont need adjusting like the solid lifter shim adjustable head on the RB26. I dont know anything about sending engines overseas so i cant help you there. The RB 30 engine was used in VL Commodore cars and R31 Nissan Skyline cars over here so there are a lot around.
