  1. You really do have to add time to your commute to talk to someone, you will get more thumbs up in a Dats than anything else out there. Especially in a 510 since they were used by everyone in different forms through the 50 years its been around, I met many friends in my 510 and also got pulled over by a cop cause I didnt have my shoulder belt on, it was still folded in the upper door part of the headliner, and we talked for an hour about him growing up with his mothers 510 he inherited with super low 50k something miles.

    Godzilla, Rebuilding A Monster

    V8, not in the GT-R, there are certain times and places for different engines. FJ/KA/SR/RB have their places.

    Godzilla, Rebuilding A Monster

    Oh not saying you should drop it in brother, its made specifically for Classic vehicles that wont need smog checks and real frames to handle the torque. Keep up the work on Godzilla, must hear it fire up when its ready.

    Godzilla, Rebuilding A Monster

    I love the sound of the RB motors, its a sweet lullaby approaching any power level. But for $15k+, complete drop in full unlocked ECU and harness, senors, everything from Dodge factory for a Hellcat 707hp pump gas daily driver 😄 https://www.forbes.com/sites/jimgorzelany/2017/10/30/fca-to-sell-aftermarket-707-hp-hellcat-engine-but-theres-a-catch/#60f7a045a2ff Thats a good deal considering there is more room to tune above 1000hp on pump gas. I'm already imagining a Dodge HellColt and Dodge D50 truck powered monster.

    I had a custom setup on my Z20, but does any of this wiring help? Mine didnt run and it was the magnetic trigger collar that was cracked, new one got it going again.

    Datsun J16 Engine performance

    It wouldnt hurt to just slap it in place of the J13 and see if it runs... if it needs a rebuild or more parts to see if it runs, that would be the proverbial "Fork in the Road" for me to stick with stock and gather parts for a more readily available engine/parts choice like an L16/5speed combo.
  8. I have come across a few custom Mini Cony trucks and vans, they run about $1500 running and driving even with legit license plates. They fit in the back of a full size truck bed lol. Slap it on a Suzuki Sidekick/Geo Tracker frame should fit. They still make these Kai Cars, with newer setups with 4x4, A/C, power steering: Daihatsu Hijet !!!

    LED headlights

    H5001/H5006 are the sealed beam original models, so you would want to search those for led equivalents like HERE for example.

    1974 620 Ultra Quiet (like OEM) Exhaust: Adapt 720? or?

    8 years ago in Sacramento CA, also had a Weber and EI matchbox on it. Have to hit the right people at the right time to buy/sell a Dat.

    Monster NL320 4x4 Build

    Wiring headlights and turn signals with a simple harness of new pulled teflon wires, probably be done this week so I can drive it out this weekend to finish the paint scheme. I have a pair of 84 Subaru Wagon passenger doors I will re-skin and run them suicide on the truck, they are power and dont have a window frame (easier to custom fit).

    1974 620 Ultra Quiet (like OEM) Exhaust: Adapt 720? or?

    Its the Datsun market as a whole, not just the 620 trucks but the older and newer stuff also. I think its the Datsun gene pool, not much is getting passed down to the next gen, and good vehicles and parts are rotting away or horded from the rest. I had complete restored a 73 620 with a L20B completely rebuilt with 0 miles, and couldn't get over $2500 for it, just how it is.

    bonvos new daily 04 dodge srt4

    Any Updates on the NSRT?
  14. I have had 2 Metros 92 and 94 and know exactly what you mean. I usually would have to swap the old head off them around the 100-130k mile mark, which they do sell new heads for $500 inc core from Rockauto. The valves and exhaust egr ports are very small and passages gum up with carbon and causes a variety of issues. I had hi comp pistons in mine and performance head with competition cam, converted it to MPFI using a Daihatsu Charade ECU and intake (I still have a 3cyl MPFI ECU backup). Best to just change the head out, new rings, and keep on truckin.

    Noob Turbo L-16 from Hell

    Not easy to find, but they are out there in the classifieds alot as whole 200SX cars or motors. Z20E is the EFI block, has slightly longer rod than the Z20S carbie motor. These certain motors we tend to grab and set aside whole or bag the parts from Parts Yards knowing at some point we may use them. The gain would be ehhhh using them, if your going to build a custom motor and spend the time inside it, might as well start with a superior unit like a SR/KA, otherwise stock build is best.
