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.

Nissan 720 turbo
This is my baby running a Z24 with a tsi talon turbo running 6 psi. just needs paint this video
does not do it justice. it will smoke rices all day long.
VG30 conversion my 1980 720 4x4
Saw several VG30 conversions, mostly dimer'z I havent seen another 720
swap. I did this in 1992 while still working at M & G Z cars, before my
dealership jaunts, lol.
truck originally had an L20B. I inherited the truck in 1985 from one of our
customers after they overheated it and bent #3 conn-rod.
Engine conversion is Calif. smog legal, BAR referee label.
I was a Nissan technician for some time & a licensed smog-tech as well.
I repaired the L20B with spare parts from my 510 wagon and ran it for a
I started four wheeling with all my Toyota friends, then in 1987 I
performed a custom SAS swap, I soon found the need for EFI !!!
after my 1st Sledgehammer run with Marlin in 1994 I ditched the stock
T/case and with some machine shop assistance made a trans-adapter & coupler
and have been running dual Toyota T/case's & a Marlin crawler, I recently
installed an MC07 & 23 spline input in the rear case.
I used parts from a 280Z, 280ZX, Pulsar, NX, Max, D21, pathfinder &
Stanza wagon to complete the project. I wanted to keep fabrication to a
minimum using factory parts wherever I could.
lots of little brackets, clips and clamps that go unnoticed but help it
tidy under the hood.
In 2002 I installed a stock 1995 Altima Throttle body onto the stock 300ZX
intake for Gob's more mid-range torque.
future mod's include swapping everything over into a used king-cab and
possibly moving the engine back a few inches with 200SX VG30 intake & Exhaust manifolds.
lengthen the front of the frame, this time an additional 10 " for longer
front leaf springs and to put the oil pan sump in the rear ( This pan &
pick up are currently up front )
truck had about 120K on it in 1992 before the swap, I now have 445,190 K on
it and still going strong with the engine rolling over 300K on my rebuild
( my little green energizer bunny, LMAO)
starting to get a little HLA clatter now at idle.............and I should
have washed it off before shooting this, .....sorry.
PS: there are other vid's of the truck, this one is just the VG30. enjoy
