Datsun 510 : Bluebird SSS 1600 - Autotaku
The only sound in this video is the first part where the car drives by. I figured that the car spoke for itself and there was no need for me to interrupt.
Datsun 510 / Datsun Bluebird SSS 1600 depending on which country you are from.
Anyway you look at it, this car is in cherry condition and is done up nicely!!

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....!

Datsun 510 SR20de Motor
This is the first time the car moved by itself in over a year since I took on this project. I can finally see some daylight. The motor is an SR20de from a JDM S14 with VTC so I am curious if I will be happy with the results of a better header and some cams or go FI. But that will be much later down the road. Here is a small clip with open Exhaust. This week it is going to the Exhaust shop. Oh BTW my wifes car is in the shot too.
