Datsun A15 ITB EFI Startup
Another startup video of my custom EFI Setup in my Datsun 1200 Coupe.
Getting a bit closer now, have coolant sensor all sorted, O2 feedback
and got it idling (all be it a bit high @ 1500 rpm) still running super
rich, and so its
pretty smokey and back fires at higher revs. also very difficult to get it
its cranking....... Megasquirt is hard work, but its DIY so be happy when I
get there in the end :)
coldstart rb25det s13.mp4
Cold start and drive to the store of my 1994 S13 convertible with an
Specs: BONE STOCK RB25det, series 1. Stock sidemount i/c. RB20 trans, stock
4.08 open diff.
Stock brakes and suspension, stock bodywork, stock rims, complete with
hooptymobile body kit (duct taped top.) I did all work myself, including
making engine mounts (modified top hat upper mounts, modified S13
crossmember.) I did all wiring myself as well. Driveshaft is stock D21 4x4
regular cab shortbed , lenghtened 1 inch with the smaller input yoke to
match rb20 trans. (if I had rb25 trans the driveshaft would have been a
bolt-up.) I used this due to the larger, greasable U joints (same as chevy
1500) I had to swap the pinion flange from the C200 out of the D21 pickup
(larger bolt circle) but spline count and diameter are identical between
C200 straight axle and R200 IRS pumpkin.
As you can see in the video, the car actually cold starts with minimal
cranking due to me wiring it correctly (most people wire the idle-up
solenoid which is used to idle up when power steering switch or a/c is
engaged, hot all the time, which results in engine idle of about 1100rpm
when warm.) My engine idles at 650 rpm when warm, like nissan intended. All
my gauges work and are accurate (at least as much so as stock gauges can
be...speedo is within 3-4mph and tach is within 200rpm)
Temp gauge works...takes about 8 to 10 minutes for that big lump of cast
iron to get hot enough to move the gauge needle.
To all the ppl who think I didn't go fast enough, I'm on city streets with
35mph (sometimes 25mph) speed limits, and very bumpy, full of potholes. As
you can see I did a few zero to sixty+ mph runs. (top of 2nd gear) End of
october is bad time to mess around, cops are everywhere. To all the people
who think the car is "slow" compared to most RB swaps, keep in mind that
1)I didn't launch hard (no traction anyway, got wheelspin in 2nd gear up to
about 60mph) 2)STOCK MOTOR, NO MODS other than Exhaust 3) it's a convertible and weighs over
3100lb with me in it 4) and being one hand is holding my phone not much
room for countersteering and shifting, as this car gets loose quick. As you
guys *and gals* can see the engine has plenty of low end torque as well,
which helps it get nearly 26mpg overall when shortshifting (not to mention
it sounds almost like a diesel truck lol) and is way more enjoyable to
drive "normally" than any SR. Thanks for watching!

1978 DATSUN B210 INCREDIBLE SURVIVOR
Just to set the record straight, the "It happened in 1978" website was
wrong and I failed to double-check them. Too late to re-script the entire
video. So, once and for all... According to Wikipedia and several
additional sources it was actually 1976 when the album Hotel
California was released NOT 1978
See a FULL SCREEN PHOTO image at this link:
Our 1978 Datsun B210 with 19,600 actual miles. (31,500km) It has been
garaged it's entire life. It has never been winter driven, and has seldom
seen rain... No smoking ever. This car is not restored, it has never had
any paint work of any kind. The body and interior are almost perfect. The
engine compartment has not been detailed. The car is kept in climate
control and only driven a few times each year to car shows. It has an
EPA-mpg rating of 28 city and 41 highway! It is powered by a 1.4 liter
4-cylinder engine with a 4-speed manual transmission.

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....!
