L28 Engine built by Peter McDonnell in Victoria. Tuned by Les Collins and Peter McDonnell: Triple 44mm Mikuni carbs with 39mm chokes, 88mm SPS forged flattop pistons, FJ spool rods, high lift electromotive grind cam, SWR tuned headers, SWR CNC ported E88 head. 10.5 to 1 compression, 7kg flywheel. 284 fwhp.
First start up of Frankenstein L28 with triple Mikuni's
This is a second hand rebuilt L28 engine I picked up. It that has 2mm
oversize flat top Toyota pistons (hence "Frankenstein"), 74 deg cam,
re-curved mech advance electronic dizzy, extractors with 2.5" Exhaust and triple Mikuni carbies on a Cannon
manifold. This is the first start up of it once installed and the tuning is
up the shit, but at least it ran. The smoke is from the Exhaust paint curing and is no big deal, looks
bad but that is normal for the paint to bake on.
Stay tuned for more video's once its finished and running properly.
Datsun L28 Stroker - Pt2
With more tuning it now makes 350FWHP at little over 7000rpm.

Datsun L-series Valve Adjustment
I did these videos several years ago. I had previously only put them up on
my photobucket account and then on Ratsun.net. I just came across them
again, so I thought I'd combine them and post them to youtube. Not sure
about the vid quality from the old camera, but it should still be helpful.
Further tune up info I posted on Ratsun a few days ago

600+hp Datsun dyno session
series of Dyno pulls,
with a best of 607 hp
This was the first Dyno session where my car
exceeded 600hp to the wheels. The runs were performed at Motor City
Motorsports in Riverview, MI on a Dynojet 248C (yes it was
calibrated properly). The backfires at the end of some of the pulls were
just from the rev limiter's 8000rpm fuel cut - this introduces unburned
oxygen into the Exhaust and burns any
previously unburned fuel from the rich mixture prior to hitting the fuel
cut. The engine is a stroked Nissan L-series, 3.0 litres with Diamond
custom forged pistons and Cunningham rods. the head is an N42 with a fair
amount of port and combustion chamber work,- ceramic coatings on the
pistons, chambers and ports. Also has a custom cam grind from Elgin. The
turbo is a GT42R with a 1.15AR hot side
and a 4" Exhaust that exits through
twin 3" oval pipes on either side in fron of the rear wheels. Fuel
injection is a Electromotive TEC3r, and I did all of the tuning myself.
There's a lot more, but that should give an idea as to what's in the car.
no water or meth injection
94 octane Sunoco pump gas
