The last series of the RB26DETT produced 280 PS (206 kW) @ 6800 rpm and 289 ft·lbf (392 N·m) @ 4400 rpm. However, several stock (unmodified) engines have been dyno tested and reported to obtain nearer the 320 hp mark. It is widely renowned for its strength and extreme power potential. It is not uncommon for 600 hp to be achieved on the standard bottom end. With regular maintenance, many of these engines have been driven way past the 100,000 mile mark with a few heading toward 200,000 miles. [2] With replacements of the rods and pistons to forged units, and larger turbos (the Garrett T88 turbo being a popular conversion), the RB26 motor is capable of power in excess of 1 megawatt (or over 1,000 hp). [3][4] While the RB-series motors in general are very popular for engine tuning, it is perhaps the RB26DETT motor that has garnered the highest performance numbers.
