xyzalvarez Posted August 25, 2008 Report Share Posted August 25, 2008 well..finally i decided to share my story...love story it is...! im new to this forum but last year decided you join to the datsun family. i used to own a B series turbo built crx, ( GE sleeves, CP 9.1, eagle rods, 750cc, .60 T3, 3" piping, rev valves, JG springs, act six puck clutch. blablla.. ) it was fun being teased by sti's, ls1's and 240's,,,when you car weights 1800lbs and 309whp to the ground @ 12 psi on pump gas but i think my childhood with grampa kicked in and wanted to get me a L series motor , so i ditch the boosted dream and got my a 510 last year after looking for a while . the car ran great with the L16 w/ SU's hitting tops 80 mph at the 118 fwy , but i need more and wanted to do something by myself, not just get the car keys from a runing 510.. wanted to fall in love with it...and well finally i had the chance to get f20c swap to start with. had the chance to get a SR swap , KA or 302 shortblock... but the s2k swap is just what i wanted, being around H motors and tuning choices, the s2000 swap was the right choice for me. had to fix some stuff before getting the swap ( suspention , rear disc convertion , front 280zx brakes , lighting , fixing a 30's something short circuit , spider web as a wiring harness, etc ) been working for some time now... getting info ( thing that is almost imposible for this kind of proyect ) , what im trying to do is use honda info and apply it into the datsun (evil laughter : muahahahaha ) well mostly is datsun info ...or whatever it comes today , had the chance to take some pics ... been working on the weekends and hope to keep posting the process.... hopefully can get some answers too, from my fellow datsun owners too..! 1970 510 stock L16 with SU's and dog leg tranny ! last day with sotck motor. upsy daisy! mock up crossmember... after testing, cutting, and cutting again, i finally came up with this...it has the angle the motor needs and clears the firewall too..not so sure of the linking arm..but will see.. test fitting. looks like it was meant to be... next stage : fuel system, gas tank relocation , and learn how to AN fitting it ... :P will this love story finish in happily ever after tale..?! i hope so...
