450hp LS1 1978 Datsun 280Z
One of the coolest imports I've had the opportunity to see in action, this
extremely streetable 1978 Datsun 280z takes it's first trip to the drag
strip to do some testing. The car has an LS1 with heads, cam, and FAST
intake manifold putting down around 450 wheel horsepower! Best 1/8 mile
time was 7.11 for the night.
Datsun 240z vs Nissan GTR
This is a homebuilt twin turbo " blow
through " system on a 409 cubic inch Chevy small block engine in a 72
Datsun 240 z. The car is Street Legal due to emission excemptions and is
used for cruising, car shows, and drag racing. It is a Sleeper since it
uses a full Exhaust system and
Turbo Datsun 240Z strikes again!
Got my transbrake installed in the TH350, And got the car running somewhat
decent. This run was at 8psi of Boost. Managed to get a best of 6.7@101mph for
the night. But the time slip did not print....
240z Turbo Ls1 First time on transbrake
Some pictures of the car followed up with the first time using the t-brake.
I just got the converter/flex plate adapter sorted out and there are no
more leaks. Next on the list is to install the chute, window net, and a
fuel cell encloser. http://www.sq-creations.com/240z.html

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.
