In my case i didnt get a regular RB25DET so i cant tell how well it fit, in theory, it should fit bolt on. If you do have the RB25DE and wants to convert to a RB25DET i assume you at some point will have both engines at your disposal, then it should be easy to compare the oilpans between them. I assume, and see no reason, why they would differ between the models, car makers are usually looking for an easy way to re-use parts where they can (its more expensive to make a new mold/part for each configuration)
I actually have a GTS-4 so i had some problems finding an RB25 that had the GTR oilpan stock, so i didnt have to make a adapter-frame (since the RB26 oil pan is wider, and has a completly different bolt-pattern). Turns out there was one car that ran RB25DET with ATTESA AWD, some Stagea RS4 or something like that
So i went out and found one of those engines, and it should fit bolt on
I havent actually fit it to the car yet, as it needs some paint and stuff (the car / engine bay), and i work slow
Once my engine is installed, i might just go ahead and do a project thread :P
