How Fast Can a Short Wheelbase 4x4 Go With A Skyline R33 Engine?
We just came across these awesome videos of some cool looking Nissan Patrols that have been gutted of their original power plants in favor of an RB25DET Turbocharged Inline-6 engine out of a Nissan Skyline R33. What do you get when you mix a short wheelbase with a high revving inline-6 that sounds like the world’s meanest vacuum cleaner, well a whole lot of sideways action, that’s what!
We usually lean more towards the run of the mill V-8 Crate Engine offerings as far as engine swaps go but in this case, it looks like these guys hit the jackpot with these high-winding six’s that can rev to the moon. You’ll also notice they’re not taking it very easy on their rigs at all, in fact, they’re downright flogging them through some fun dirt tracks. We cringed a bit watching the old Patrol’s get airborne but it looks like they’re pretty well set up to soak up the harsh landings and it wouldn’t surprise us at all if these Nissan Patrols were used for regular prerunning duties. One thing’s for sure, When a Skyline engine meets an old Nissan Patrol, the fun factor goes through the roof.
Check out the awesome videos of these guys beating the snot out of their high powered Nissan Patrols in the dirt!
