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....!
Here is a video of three most well known classic japanese sports car that

and early Nissan Skyline GT-R and more....
