3D Printed Mass Air Flow Meter (MAF) Delete Pipes

3D Printed MAF delete pipe for RB26dett
3D Printed MAF delete pipe for RB26dett


This is the type of thing that I want to see 3D printers used for, rather than another cupholder. These Carbon Fiber Polycarbonate blend MAF delete pipes are an easy way to get rid of the mass air flow meters, on cars with a stand alone ECU. You could probably even use them to run an R35/Nissan MAF if you cut them, and bonded the MAF holder in. The price is great, and you should support the small guys if you can. You can email John here.


Again, if you just remove your MAF from a stock car, it will not run.

Oil Cooled Pistons : RB26DETT Tech

This is a N1 piston that came apart, when we lost oil pressure. The cooling channels are visible in the top two pieces


The RB26dett has something with the pistons, that is fairly unique in the engine world.  Unique doesn't always mean better, but it is something to consider.  OEM RB26 pistons have oil cooling channels in them. The block has squirters, that spray oil up under the pistons. Unlike many squirters that just splash the underside of the piston, the RB26 piston has a supply hole, drain hole, and channel in the piston to help cool it.  Most all aftermarket pistons, do not have cooling channels in them.

Temperature distribution in gas and diesel pistons


Advantages

  • Cooler pistons
  • Possibly less detonation

Disadvantages
  • Heat added to oil temperature
  • Oil whipped up in bottom end
  • Cost
  • Complexity
We all know that RB26 move a lot of oil, and if you run them hard, they all put a lot of heat into the oil.  If you change from OEM pistons, most will not have the cooling channels in them. It is a special process to make them in the OEM  STD, and N1 pistons, and the only aftermarket ones we know of are Reinik, and Tomei with oil channels actually in the pistons.  It seems that Tomei no longer makes the cooling channel pistons, and Reinik has been renamed Reimax, but still offer cooling channel pistons.  Was the benefit not worth it, cost?  My bluecar has Tomei oil cooling channel pistons in it, was a nice surprise to find the last time it was opened up.  I like the idea of them, of helping to control the piston temperature, but on a max effort car, perhaps piston crown coatings are more of a benefit.  The oil hitting the bottom of the piston has to add some weight, and does add a lot of windage.

Weighing the Bluecar

Bluecar at Buttonwillow during R's Day

Put the Bluecar on the Proform scales. I think the numbers seem a little on the light side, but I need to weigh more cars to verify.

3167 lbs with the spare and subwoofer out. About 1/2 a tank of gas. I know sorry, forgot to fill it. Too lazy to drain it.
