Junkyard Turbo Swap! Chevy-Powered 1971 Datsun 240Z Autocross Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 26
What do you get when you cross a rusted 1971 Datsun 240Z with a Chevy 4.3L
V6 and a turbo from a Ford Power Stroke
Diesel? The Rotsun! During Roadkill Episode 25, Freiburger and Finnegan
revived the Rotsun expecting it to dominate in the 9-car autocross showdown
of previous Roadkill project cars. It also needed to beat a 2014 Kia Rio 5,
but failed to do so with the Rotsun shamefully breaking down before
completing a decent lap. So in this episode: revenge. After swapping in the
mismatched turbo and making nearly 400
rear-wheel horsepower, the guys head to
the autocross at the Goodguys 5th Spring Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona
and mingle with fans on their way to a rematch with that dastardly Kia.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

1972 Datsun 240Z run. (One last good time before I sold it)
Right before I sold it...
Clicking noise is a leak in the balancing tube (welded day after this
video) Some sloppy shifts due to slack in the rear end and un-adjusted
clutch with cracked clutch arm bracket.
I loved/love this car! So much fun to drive...

A little vid of my FairladyZ after installing the triple Mikuni Carbs
40phh. She is a 1973 240z with an L28, ported E88 head, Monza Headers,

Sunburst 240z | Jonathan Buhler
We had the idea to shoot Jonathan's Z with his fiance modeling in it (which
she is shown 2 times in the video), but with them being so busy with
college classes and definitely with Jonathan getting ready to graduate
prior to this video, we didn't have much time to film what we wanted. We
did manage to get some clips shown in the video just because they asked me
to do a photo shoot of them. Towards the end of their semester, we finally
schedule a last shoot to finish things up, but unfortunately we didn't
because of unexpected calls of Jonathan's new job at Nissan. So we agreed
to just work with the clips I already have and honestly I think it came out
quite beautifully even though it's a small video, but videos don't always
have to be long. So here's the Sunburst orange 240z.
This gorgeous sunburst orange 240z has been worked on for so long by
Jonathan and his dad (I believe this is correct information) and I'm pretty
sure they are proud of what they have built up to this point. If you have
picked up Modified Magazine's June issue in 2011, you would have seen this
car feature along with his beloved Supra. Here's the article from the
magazine which you could find here
"Jonathan Buhler has car-guy blood in his veins. His father bought this '73
Datsun 240Z back in 1979 from the original owner (the classic first owner
tale of a little old lady who only drove it to the corner store and back),
and on Jonathan's 15th birthday passed it down to him since it had been
collecting dust in the family garage for eight years. Jonathan's other
ride, a '94 Supra TT 6-speed, purchased from his uncle in California,
recently met a less auspicious end.
When starting to restore the family Z, there weren't a lot of well-known
sources for S30 parts, but thanks to his local Nissan dealership Jonathan
was able to put his Z back in tiptop running condition. But, of course,
Jonathan had bigger plans than just a basic resto for his Z. "What you see
in these pictures is nowhere near the end for this project, but only time
and my college budget will tell when it'll be finished," he says. "It
already has a lot of my blood, sweat and tears rolled into it, and I'm
particularly proud of the fact that I've kept the original L-series motor
in it." No RB or SR swap for this Z purist, and if you've ever heard a
modified L24 straight-6 on full song, then you know why Jonathan has
decided to keep his in service.
As for his ill-fated Supra, Jonathan tells us, "After getting it off the
shipping truck, I started modding it with anything I could get my hands on.
I tried not to go overboard, though, keeping the body stock and leaving the
stock twins in place, instead going for more of the stance look. I guess I
hit the spot because my buddy Mike Burroughs from Stanceworks did a blog
feature on it. Sadly, last month I was involved in a pretty bad accident
and the Supra is no more. This car really meant a lot to me and to see her
gone is heartbreaking." Hopefully seeing her one last time on the pages of
Modified is a suitable farewell."
"Why We Picked It (Modified)
One of the all-time great Japanese sports cars, Jonathan Buhler has done a
bang-up job restoring and subtly updating the appearance of his 240Z.
Although we're partial to the bumperless and fender-flared look when it
comes to classic Fairladies, a bit of a motorsports-inspired exterior would
go nicely with the roll bar and SCCA-spec SU carbs. It's still tough to
fault the clean factory lines and sparking Sunset Orange paint on

untuned and unmuffled idle, 240Z 3.1 stroker
Quick demo of the new race headers (Stahl), at no point does the engine rev
above 3k rpm (despite how it sounds at 1:25). Other coincident upgrades
include titanium valve spring retainers, single valve springs (outer
springs only) that the cam was profiled for, and a crank/damper/flywheel
balance for 10,000 rpm.
And yes, that's coolant on the ground during the idle portion. Evidently I
didn't tighten one of the thermocouple housings all the way. Oops.
Between moving and other logistical challenges, I barely had the time to
get the new race motor installed and minimally operational before sticking
it back in the trailer for 6 months of storage, after which the engine
360HP STAR ROAD DATSUN FAIRLADY S30Z WALKAROUND
Come and take a closer look at Star Road's insane L28 powered S30Z Fairlady
that is literally the perfect mix of both the old and new schools. I walk
you around the car, showing you the immense amounts of detail that have
gone into it. It is currently developing a screaming naturally aspirated
360hp, revs to 8000rpm and includes one of the most impressive engine bays
you will ever see including a special custom carburettor/injection setup
that is monitored by MoTec engine management and a full Defi system.
You would struggle to find a better modern take on a classic like the
Fairlady anywhere else on the planet.
