Well, since a 260Z motor can fit into a Datsun 1200 sub-compact, it should fit even more easily into a larger 520/521 pickup.


The 520/521 might by wider and without strut towers but if anything has just enough room front to back for a four. It's going to be crowded on the driver's side with a six cylinder: intakeexhaustturbomastercylinderonepiecesteeringcolumnsteeringboxtorsionbar in there.

It is a major PITA putting a inline 6 into a 510, it involves cutting and reforming the firewall and transmission tunnel. Fitting a 6 cyl into a 1200 would require the same modifications, still a PITA. It would be easier and cheaper in the long run fitting a V6.
