  1. I new if I searched I would find the answer..... Dang I just wanted to sneak the KA24E head on my D21 Z24 just to get a little more power until I motor swap it. Guess I will just have to wait for more power.
  2. No feel comparison at all. I have a 86 power rack with a zillion miles on it in one of my 510's that has stock tie rods and ball joints. It feels tighter then any box car I've owned or driven. Anyone who says the "band aids" will make the box feel the same is a liar. Yeah it's a pain to keep an L with our kit. Sam did it. A 1980 510 oil pan and a header with a hug dent in it allowed it to work.
  3. I have a 510 with Sr20det I need help with wiring  the factory tachometer with the red needle

    O boy I'm close!!! Got the RWD trans almost modified. Machined the 3/8" thickness of the adapter off the bell. I think it would have worked without it but I wanted maximum spline engagement on the clutch disk. I need to mount a slave cylinder and it's done! My disk came in today too! I "machined" the flywheel to, with a sharpening stone. It's ready for some clutch kicks. Used a RWD exhaust manifold I got from my old buddy Spreadburry. He and some other pointed out the DE exhaust manifold doesn't line up with the VE exhaust ports. To me it looked close enoug

    Lowered Wagons

    Yep "old man low"!!! That's why the only 2 wagon's I ever owned had IRS swaps. 510's gotta be low to look good. Can't wait to get my goon all sorted nice and low. We need to figure out the stock fender lip to center of hub measurement. I think 6"-7" drop is what it will take to look good.

    Lowered Wagons

    My buddies goon from way back. It had a 3" and 1" block in the back. Had to cut out under the seat and some of the frame to make it ride nice. Here is a goon we built later. We converted to sedan IRS. It's about 1" off the ground not sure how much lowered that is. haha. My buddy Aaron owns it now. In this photo it wasn't as low. My current goon. Was converted to IRS by a local shop. It will be even lower soon. A slammed goon is the best!!!!! I need to rebuild the rear arches.
  8. Those are rivnuts. I need to repair that to. Mike I could paint it and get it back to it's former glory. Not sure I want to invest that much time.
  9. You're loving the D21 aren't you! The wheels were on my 2 door and fit fine. They must have done some camber correction. If I didn't have to rebuild the lips I would find other wheels. Since it's all chopped up I will look into what is needed for clearance.
  10. Got it running!!!! hooked up a bunch of wires, added battery cables and hooked up fuel lines they were installed backwards. It fired right up. The goal is to have it running for Carters B-day. He will have his goon running then. The rear arches need to be repaired and radiator needs a fan. Also the front grill, headlights and wiring needs to be gone through. So yeah. Lots of work left.
  11. Can the stock ECU be used? Or does it have some sort of anti theft / check for all important systems like Nissan or Honda?
  12. 15x8 is doable with rolled fenders. I'm sure if you got super aggressive with the right offset you could fit 8.5" maybe even 9". The rear is the tough part. The step inside the door on the fender lip will give you some issues.
  13. Sent you a message regarding the trigger wheel sensor bracket you were previously making

  14. 70 is the change over year for the harness. Did you use all the wiring that came with the car? some items don't swap over such as headlight switch, although if you had the low beams working Hainz is right, the relay is most likely bad. Which is an easy fix. Did you soak your fuse box in vinegar and check all the fuses? Also pay very good attention under the dash where the dash harness connects to the engine room harness. You can plug things in wrong. Make sure the colors line up. Get yourself a test light and see where the power stops. That will help you solve some issues. Then get s
  15. My coupe had a "2" stamped on the strut tower, it wasn't a SSS coupe. The seam between the firewall and the inner fender was off by 1/4" and you could see light throw it after I removed all the undercoating. Must have been built on a Monday morning.
