Datsun Rally Car, T10 The Beast
The car is a Nissan Datsun 120y (highly modded of course) with a RB26 engine with anti-lag.
Driver is Geoff Uylett from Barbados, driving in the Barbados Rally 2010.
450hp LS1 1978 Datsun 280Z
One of the coolest imports I've had the opportunity to see in action, this extremely streetable 1978 Datsun 280z takes it's first trip to the drag strip to do some testing. The car has an LS1 with heads, cam, and FAST intake manifold putting down around 450 wheel horsepower! Best 1/8 mile time was 7.11 for the night.
Datsun 1200 A12 turbo intercooled
Just a short walk around video of me datsun just made a 2.5 inch turbo back Exhaust. It has a gt15 turbo running a front mount and blown through a 350 holley carby. Has a big cam unsure of exact specs. Head has been shaved unsure what the compression now is. Its running about 9psi Boost controlled by a 38mm external gate. Estimated power 140rwhp??
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 it.
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....!
