To get back to the topic at hand, I have an RB25 5w20 was the oil all the skyline threads were saying. If you really need help with the an RB i would highley suggest joining a skyline club they have a lot of knowledge and are a big resource that many people dont use because it says canada or australia in the name. Just saying that most of the people on here arnt going to be able to help with RBs cuz they arnt the most common things to swap for.

You are correct BUT the reality is the total lack of useful information will get you dick on the RB forums as well. This motor isn't newbie friendly. After the 1000th time you have heard "my car cuts out under boost" (for example) on the RB forums people just stop answering the question. There aren't very many knowledgeable members on the RB forums in the states. With the proliferation of prefab harnesses and mount kits the swap became more popular, but the people doing the swap know nothing about how to fix problems when they arise. Troubleshooting is what separates the men from the boys.

This is the last non asshole thing I am going to say to the OP;

You are in over your head, find someone local who can hands on help you. Your communication of the problems isn't nearly enough information to help with anything. You may have to pay for the help, but it's better than throwing parts at your car. RB parts aren't cheap and wasting money on them is dumb.

5w20 isn't helping your situation any. i would run 5w30 at minimum. i personally run 0w40 on everything i own.

Gunked up mafs causes apparent low oil pressure And knocking. Weird. I'll have to remember that for the future.

Im not saying everything you read on a skyline forum is going to be correct, it just seems like hes asking a lot of question specific to the motor that unless you own or have owned an rb engine youll have a difficult time trying to figure what the hell is going on
