T rav Posted March 21, 2020 Report Share Posted March 21, 2020 Hello My name is Travis my teenage son wants to build a Drift racer. So I found a 1981 Datsun 200sx nearby. Just under 77 000 miles. Sitting over 10 years body is solid and I got motor started after a few hours...drain fuel and oil change filters either shot and it came to life. Z20e 5speed fastback. Ugly car...all the plastic and rubber is dry rotted cracked faded. Is this car collectable or unique? Should I try to source interior parts and restore it? Tub and roll cage? Are there performance parts for the z20e engine.? The S110 in Europe came with 1.8t... My thoughts was port and polish the twin plug head header and cold air intake but the Super Silhouette was awesome on the race circuit back in the early 80s. Although the Rally car may be better for the area we live. I have 100 questions...keep stock engine and turbocharge it? LS swap? SR20DET? Any advice greatly appreciated. 1 Quote Link to comment
