This is the first of hopefully a number of videos documenting the conversion of my poor rusty old 1975 Datsun 1200 Ute from the original 1.2L whipper snipper engine it left the factory with to a 1996 SR20DET engine out of a Jap import S14 Silvia.
Stay tuned for more!!!
PRO DAT 20B TURBO MONSTER - Brad Mcilroy's Datsun 1200 Ute
Brad would like to thank Jerry from Direct Clutch Services, Dan from
Promods, Brad P and Archie from Mazfix for tuning. This car will be
debuting on the track very soon, and you can come see it at the Jamboree
under the Mazfix tent on August 27th and 28th.
Datsun 510 with Honda S2000 engine
Collection of pictures showing how a stock Datsun 510 got his swap from a
03 s2000 donor ;it takes almost the same time chopping the frame for either
other swap, so I felt more confortable swapping a s2k engine & tranny on
I didn't know where to start, but somehow everything started to taking
place in a house garage with some basic tool that my grampa left me.
Overall this could be called as frankestein swap because of the info and
parts used. Ei: Subaru R160 LSD, Nissan Maxima rear calipers with KYB AGX
Mitsubishi Eclipse adj shocks , front brakes and suspention provided by
Datsun 280zx shocks with eibach springs and Nissan 240sx camber plates
with tokiko adj shocks,Datsun 210 brake Booster with 280zx master cilinder, 04 S2000
motor/ tranny with a custom crossmember 50%honda 50% datsun driveshaft.
S2000 Cluster on 510 frame, old recaro front seats with Mitsubishi EvoVIII
rear seat. mix and match for the datsun / honda wireharness and fuse box ,
AEM standalone system.
Griffin Ford Mustang
radiator, with AN radiator hoses.... the list goes for the wiring , same as
the brake system and plumbing. It took me around 7-8 months to finish it ,
working mostly at night and weekdays.
The main issue was to keep the most of the original geometry of the
Datsun...and basically remained the same, only for the tranny tunnel wich
it was extended. custom header and Exhaust, muffler provided by Greddy RSX type S
muffler gave a low tone on the open pipe Exhaust. the car ran around last months of 08'
..still need some work as the interior carpet and sound system but
heeeey... who cares when you can rev 9k rpm's....!
UPDATE!! 1997 nissan s14 kouki sr20det build (part2) with dyno video!
*skip to 18:18 to see video of the car running
*skip to 24:53 for Dyno video
so after my last video the car ran good for about 2 weeks. long story
short, the tune that my last shop did set my motor up for detonation so
cylinder #1 dropped a significant amount of compression. the other 3 did as
well but not to such a degree.
it took me around 7-8 months to gather enough money to go with forged
internals rather than OEM.
i was on the verge of purchasing all the parts when i came across what i
thought was too good to be true.
someone in north carolina had a nice 1996 nissan 240se shell and fully
built block for sale. he was asking right around what it would of cost me
to rebuild my motor and considering i was getting a entire car and many
aftermarket parts with it, it was a no-brainer for me... I WAS SOLD!
here are SOME of the parts included with the 1996 240 shell:
-Freddy intake manifold/$140
FULLY ASSEMBLED BLOCK (BLUEPRINTED AND RACE BALANCED)
-9:1 forged cp pistons $470
-Brian crower 1200hp "I beam extreme" 19mm GT-R +625 ARP hardware/ $630
-ACL race rod and main bearings /$121.60
-nissan thrust washer /$12
