What's up Skyline fans...I've got a really important question.

Does a 1996 R33 Skyline GTS Type S have a 2000cc or a 2500cc engine?!??

I think it's supposed to have a 2500cc...but i gotta confirm with you Skyline heads here...

THANX dudes!

R33's have the RB25DE and RB25DET motors, (GTR having the RB26)
the RB25 is a 2500cc motor.
The RB20 was only in the R30-32 as far as I know, but then again I don't care much about the SKyline, im more of a Silvia fan myself.

The RB20DET and RB20DE motor was binned if you will during the production run of the R33. Most was due to the weight increase and lack of power for a larger car, and the RB25DE came into its own. The R33 also saw the lost of the RB20DET in the GTS4 version as well.
That changed a bit when the R34 production came out. With new technology Nissan brought back the RB20DE in limited numbers coupled with high volumes of RB25DE motors for the N/A cars.

Actually..

The Skyline i was talking about is a HR33 model which has a 2000cc engine and NO turbo..

The ECR33 model is the one with the RB25 (2500cc) engine and a turbo..

Thanx for your replies anywayz...

To my knowledge they never made a 2 litre in the R33 series.

I've never heard of a 2.0l RB engine in an R33 either. They are just to damn heavy, it'd be like pullin an SUV with a 4 cyl boxer. Well... Not that bad but ya know what I mean :p

Hehe, Anguss has a little boys 2 litre car.

GTS = RB20E
GTS25 = RB25DE
GTS4 = RB25DE
GTS25t = RB25DET

Definately a 2 litre version. Couldn't even afford to put twin cams on it.

yep is is saddly true. The 2 litre version of the R33 GTS is an RB20E or the same engine that was put in the R32 GTE. It has a distributor and plug leads unlike the RB20DE has.

It is a single over head cam producing a whopping 110 brake hp :(
