My '74 Datsun 260Z with F54/P90, Flowmaster 40 Startup Vid
My 74 260 running after P90 head swap. F54/P90, flat top carbs (!!) with
all smog removed, 6-1 header, 2.5 Exhaust, no cat , Flowmaster stainless 40. It's
a side inlet, center out (842541), but it hung down, so I flipped it. It
sounds exactly the same backwards as it does frontwards, so no worries.
For anyone getting ready to vent on flat tops, don't bother. I switched
from my round tops because these run the same (better!) whether you're in
the gas or on the brakes due to the integrated, identical fuel bowls, with
centered floats. They also have sight glasses, an easier way to set the
idle mix and speed, and a much better choke and accelerator pump. Racers
all ran these because they were better, street drivers hated them because
they didn't understand that it was the smog crap making the cars run so
terrible. As you can see, my opinion is pretty solid, so don't bother
trying to change it. I'll be running these until I set it up for EDIS and
MS III injection.
These Datsun 240Zs Are Animals to Drive
The only thing rarer than the sight of a Datsun 240Z in the English
countryside is the sight of two 240Zs in the English countryside. Spend
enough time on the backroads of Kent, however, and chances are Mel Streek
and his son, Ollie, will scream past you in their pair of Z cars.
Rest assured, you’ll have no trouble telling the two cars apart. The
“Ratsun”–so nicknamed for its rough exterior–belongs to Mel, though
after purchasing it he quickly found that he was seldom able to drive it
because Ollie was always in it. This sent Ollie on a quest for a 240Z of
his own, and he found it, in Copenhagen, in the form of a pristine 1973
model. This automotive odd couple can now be found barreling through the
country lanes in tandem.
Not that having his own Z has stopped Ollie from eyeballing his dad’s
car–he’d like to own both. After all, Ollie’s car may be easier to
drive, but it’s Mel’s that gets the attention of onlookers.
“Mine’s the one that actually turns the heads,” says Mel, smiling
For now, though, Ollie can take solace in the fact that these two Datsuns
seem destined to share a garage–if not an owner–for a long time to
come, as both of the Streek’s refuse to part with their 240Z.

Datsun 280z Exhaust
A friend and I shot this as part of a bigger video, but I thought it'd be
cool to share this as the audio quality of the Exhaust note is quite nice.
The car is a 1977 Datsun 280z with a 4 speed manual.
The Exhaust is a 6-2-1 header into a
V-banded 2.5 inch system back to a Magnaflow muffler.
This was shot on a GoPro Hero3 Black Edition. Setting: 1080P @ 30FPS, Wide
angle, ProTune ON
