The legendary RB26 straight-six that powered the R32, R33 and R34-generation Skyline GT-R is being built once more. Well, chunks of it - Nissan’s Nismo Heritage Parts collection has just expanded by another 24 parts, and that includes key components of the 2.6-litre engine.

The RB26’s block, cylinder head, harness and exhaust system are among the latest additions to the programme, which already offers a wide range of brand new R32/33/34 bits and pieces. According to the price list, you’re looking at 170,000 yen (£1180) for the block and 187,000 (£1300) for the head.

As spotted by Jalopnik, you can also have the stronger part number A1000-RHR30 block from the RB26DETT N1. It’s quite a bit more expensive, though - you’ll need to part with 425,000 yen (nearly £3000) to bag one.

Need some body parts for an R32? You’re in luck - Nismo is once more making roof panels are rear wings for the car, along with other exterior pieces previously announced under the scheme.
