Only thing I'm worried about is the rear end blowing up.

 

I put the 510 wagon rearend (H190) in my 1200 sedan KA swap. Pretty much bolt-in, should fit the B210 pretty well.

Thanks for the tip.

Thanks for the tip.

 

FYI, it's roughly 2" wider, but is basically a bolt-in affair as he said.

I have used (and abused) B210 rear ends with engines this strong or stronger in 1200s with no fuss. I do have a minor concern that in the heavier B210 your experience may vary.

Over a year without an update. It's done for the most part. Currently at a friends house getting exhaust built. 302 Stainless, full tig welded with pie cuts... should be pretty. Will post pics of exhaust later, but for now, enjoy. (In no particular order)

Fix the front camber.

 

It's a bit extreme at the moment. It will definitely have noticeable negative camber, but certainly not... 12 degrees. LOL

I see expensive camber plates going to waste.

 

 

Finally brought it into the shop (I work at Toyota) and put it on the alignment rack....

 

-4.5 degrees of camber, +1.5deg of caster and around +0.15deg of toe-in. Drives like a fucking go-kart!!!!!

Been thinking about an L20b swap in my B310 lately. Starting to get tired of my A14 already

Due to the cock sucking nature of WA State governor, Jay Inslee, I have been laid off of work since March 14... Car has been totally parted out and sold off. Got about a 75% return on money invested and the shell went to a hood home.

Yeah your governor sucks (technically mine as well). Washington used to be halfway decent before it was completely taken over by Californians. I don't think I'll ever move back there permanently anymore.  Good luck getting a new job and a new project car!

Couldn't you just throw a tarp over it in the hopes of coming back when your fortunes change for the better?

 

 

Definitely could have. But, behind the scenes of Ratsun, I have spent way too much time and money into (after all..) a 4dr B210. I was starting to feel a bit guilty. I've got a young kiddo. She needs a college fund more than dad needs a B210 race car.
