My '71 Datsun 510 vs Silvia Turbo (S12)
Shot at Santa Pod in 2004. The 510 was running a stock KA24DE with a 3.7
open diff and 185/60x14 Yokahama A032R's. The Silvia had a slightly
modified CA18ET. I think my 510 ran 14.62 at around 90mph on this run.

race) is very fast - Buick powered Datsun 240Z. We are both lapping the

Its been a little over a week since we featured this 510 and I honestly
miss it. This 72 Datsun 510 SR20DET for sale was built with so much style
and care, I can’t think of a better one. Thank you to the owner Raul for
letting us film your car before you sell it.
Filming this 510 was an interesting story as well. As Luke and I were
scouting spots near Raul’s house, we stumbled upon the actual US Nissan
Design center. This is the place where they designed the 370z and the Idx
(the new 510). What luck! The employees there were so awesome to let us
shoot some footage at there loading dock and main entrance. Over the 2
hours we were there, a lot of them came out to see Raul’s car. It was
pretty cool to see how much they all admired the styling of this car. I
guess they we’re paying respect to their elder ;)
What I loved about this SR20 510 was how it was such reliable daily driver.
While it looks like a showcar/racecar Raul comfortably drives it everyday.
He drove me around in it a little and I just couldn’t stop smiling. Being
such a lightweight car, the power is strong and the turbo is consistent. Oh and that sound, the SR20
screams if you want it to but it remains humble at low speeds.
I’ll be honest, this car isn’t for everyone. It’s only for those who
“get it”. It’s for those who know what this car stands for and is
about. Words don’t really explain it, it’s just the feeling you get
when see it and experience it. The next owner of this car is going to be
very happy. --Grayson Barbou

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
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.
