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....!

Sounds of a Sleeper - Supercharged V6 Datsun 510
This 71 Datsun 510 has been highly modified for hillclimbs and autox competitions, and is very similar in appearance to the 510 recently featured on Jay Leno's garage. The 3.3L VG is a V6 pulled from a Nissan Pathfinder, and has been raised to well above 400 horsepower made possible by the Vortech Supercharger. This is the first known setup and installation into a Datsun 510, and has been proven over years of racing. The 2in Exhaust front-to-back gives it a great sound, and is one of the few clues into this sleeper since there is no Intercooler. The Subaru limited slip differential helps keep it in line up when peeling out into 4th gear. Enjoy the sound!
