    Default dont hate me

    Hi all iam a newby here and probley dont belong. But i do drive Kind of a zx it a 71 Datsun 510 with pretty much all 80 zx under it i pick up a zx awhile back and it was to far gone for me so i stripped all the running gear and trans it had no motor. I took it all and put on my 510 amd man what a kick in the ass it made that car so my reason for comming to your site is to see and talk to u all about suspension and trans rear diff stuff so as my project grows i will keep you all posted you can see some off my racing on utube under seaside autosross. and i a running a modifid z intake with dual s/u's

    so it really a z under a 510

    No problem Freaky... lots of people do engine swaps in Z's and still hang out with Z Car People... Of course they also have their own "domain"... hybridZ.org... Maybe there will be a need to start a hybrid510.org some day!!

    The original Z had lots of 510 DNA anyway... so a Z/510 transplant should do well. Of course I have to say you stopped a little short, by not swapping in an L28 as well....

    welcome...

    I echo Carl's words. You're more than welcome. There is massive loyalty amongst the 510 owners here and I'm sure you'll find some compatriots.

    Freaky,
    You can also check out www.datsunsnw.org for listings of upcoming events in the area. Do you spend any time on the Bluebird list? It's 510s all the time and by definition they are modified more than not......

    That is an odd, but interesting, difference between the 510 and Z crowd. Take Canby for example, there'll maybe be enough 'stock' 510s to warrant A trophy while the stock Z entries will be several. I'll have to count this year but I'd guess well over half of the 510s have moved on from an L-motor of any size to SR-20s VGs VQs etc. etc, etc.

    Wish I still had my 70 2dr. 510 but you can't keep them all I guess. You still have a 4 cyl engine in it don't you? You just used all the rest of the ZX stuff. I've heard of people putting the L6 in a 510 but I've never seen one in person. One of these days I'm going to Canby. I live in SoCal but I was born in Portland, OR though I haven't been back there to visit since 1990.

    I would love a replica BRE 510 for my collection. He'll, I'd love a real one if I could afford it.

    Welcome! One of our distinguished members, Diseazd, also has an awesome 510 in his collection, so don't feel like an outsider.

    That's what I was thinking, too. He's used the tranny and the third member but not the motor....swapping an L-28 into a 510 has been done, but requires a major surgical procedure to the firewall, since an inline six doesn't fit in a 510 engine compartment.

    Still, I had a ZX tranny in my '68 510 and it is a sweet upgrade. Bolts right in, just requires slight modification to the shifter hole.

    Freaky, I think you will find most of us are "Datsun" enthusiasts.

    Not me particularly... I like ALL sports cars. Some more than others you understand.

    My 240Z just happens to be the one that I found cheap and decided to spend too much money restoring. If I had happened upon a 510 (even more unlikely than a Z around this part of the country) I would have one of those instead.

    I love reading about your car and the mods you have made to it.
