vl turbo block casting numbers

Hi guys

people sometimes identify a genuine turbo block by the A8 after the engine number

this is a HOLDEN identification number

I also dont believe water and oil lines on series II blocks are a true indicator of an authentic vlturbo block


what are the GENUINE RB30 turbo casting block numbers from NISSAN which are on the passenger side of the block

These are located on the passenger/exhaust side of the block

The casting numbers on my block (passenger)

67s ( at the top )

6051D ( underneath )

1 or I ( next to the oil return at the bottom )



Question 2 )

how many kgs should a factory vl turbo bare block weigh ?

No differences in the blocks,Just the latter ones form the factory were drilled so they did not have to worry what went where.(turbo or NA)

ive ever actually heard that one.

i thought the a8 is the correct stamping and denotes that whats inside is ll of the turbo cams and pistons etc.

who told you the casting is different?

Holden state in their release for all 3 litre blocks(turbo and non turbo)That the

Engine-crankcase

Material Stiffened skirt cast iron with rib
Fully jacketed cylinders Yes

This was issued November 1985 and revised april 1986

Will hunt up the paper work for the dates the all blocks were revised for the oil and cooling ports for easier assembly on the line.

Cheers Marty

Bringing this back up.

Is there any clarification to the casting numbers?

Besides having an “8” or a “6” which anybody could stamp onto any rb30 Nissan skyline block with inputs for water/oil lines, do actual “A8” stamped blocks have different casting numbers compared to an “A6” or skyline block?

Is there information in the service books?
