The reality of the RB26 oiling system

The engineers designed the RB26 engine but the accountants designed the oil system

I guess a lot has been written about how much power the RB26 engine is capable of and how the 2.6 litre engine is “race derived”. The ease of tuning this engine way beyond anything the manufacturers intended, has certainly led to many people finding out the hard way about the shortcomings of the RB26 oiling system more often than not after a terminal engine failure costing many thousands of dollars to repair. The first thing you need to understand is that the GTR was made with 206kw and as a road car came with a warranty from Nissan, so with this in mind the standard oiling system must have done the job for a standard car on standard road tyres or Nissan would have gone broke with warranty claims. My answer to this would be that it certainly was up to the task PROVIDED it was left standard and left on road tyres and never driven on a race track. Now the first place a new GTR owner tends to want to go (after the tuning shop for some upgrades) would be either the racetrack or the drag strip.... Correct?

After all this is Godzilla!!! And “I want to flex its muscles!”
