I found this R32 engine manual PDF online:

http://www.psiparts.com.au/TechInfo/Manuals/R32 Engine Manual.pdf

And was hoping to find information about how to remove and reinstall the cylinder head, but unfortunately the detailed descriptions in that PDF are for the RB25DET and RB26DETT... Does anyone know where I can find the info for the RB20? I have to find all this info myself I don't know any Skyline specialists in Holland...

Thanks for the effort Aitch but unfortunately those are for a SOHC RB20E engine... I've never even seen one of those before :confused:

I think that's that PDF file printed out...

Anyone else? Please? Rather desperate :attention:

Yeah okay fair enough you tighten them up in a diagonal pattern starting from the center.

But for instance the RB20E is tightened to 8kgm and the RB25DE engine to 10kgm.

That's a big difference!

I just don't want to get it wrong and fcuk up the engine...

Cheers Aitch but that manual is for the R33 hence no RB20DET in it...

Unless the RB25's headbolts are torqued to the same level?

Don't see how the RB20DET will differ in any significant way, adding a turbo does not affect the block dynamics, but I suggest you look in the FAQ section for appliccable links.

not just a turbo, misses a camshaft as well... if the combustion pressure is lower then the headbolts will be under a lot less stress... ah well I dunno I just think that it'll be different

I'll go with what I've found and accept failure if I'm wrong :(

aitch is right for the most part. if u have a DET engine, it shouldn't matter if its a 20 or 25. just use what the rb25det manual says to use. thast what ive been using... no problems so far
