RB26 Cylinder Head Build DIS


When it comes to your RB26 cylinder head build various components come into the discussion. Common upgrades include valve springs, camshafts, valve guides, larger valves, etc.  Depending on what components you go with for your build and your desired power goals or build requirements, different machine work will be performed including valve job, cutting valve seats for a larger valved motor, port and polish to enlarge intake and exhaust ports.  You may find that the direction that you take with the cylinder head build will play a role in supporting mods as well included oil pump, cam gears, pistons, head studs and gaskets.  Raw Brokerage is here to guide you through what might be seemingly huge task to get you the correct parts for the build you want!

RB26 Camshafts

Step 1:  Verify your cam angle sensor.Check to see which cam angle sensor (CAS) you have on your engine to narrow down compatible camshafts. The main difference is the camshaft drive design as seen in the illustrated comparison. Raw Brokerage classifies these into two types:

Type-1 sensors are full aluminum in construction. The cam drive has a female spline drive with a male half moon.

Type-2 sensors are a combination of both aluminum body and a plastic cover. The cam drive is round with an offset slot though the middle.

Drop In Cams

The factory lift is 8.58mm on the intake camshaft and 8.28mm on the exhaust camshaft.The maximum lift you're able to run on a factory cylinder head casting is 9.35mm before your camshaft lobe makes contact with the cylinder head.Any camshaft less than 9.35mm of lift while retaining a factory size base circle can be considered a drop in camshaft.
