    LeX's 4 door HR30 project

    I thought I should get around to posting this thing lol..

    As it arrived from Japan



    Here is my 1981 nissan skyline HR30!





    Came basically bone stock from Japan except a ground kit and a nice catback exhaust and a few stickers.
    had some significant engine bay structural damage and some rusty rear fenders but that has been dealt with and was a good undertaking.

    Specs now are rebuilt L28E-T with block and head from 280Z. Currently using L20ET wiring and engine management to run everything. In the near future will be doing MS2 with 450cc injectors and upping boost to 15psi.

    Looking good man. Like the Wats. How do you like the s13 stuff on the front end, do you have some steering slop?

    There's a bit of slop but for me it isn't bad as I've never had an old datsun with forgiving steering. Also it could be the cheap tires or worn out bushings versus anything coilover related . they feel pretty good though. I have RCA's on front too. Dampen pretty well. Function and form coils front and some Isis on back just for the time being

    nice. i need to just do the damn swap and see for myself how it goes. keep getting mixed feedback on it lol. my current plan was to just go with some r31house coilovers. that way i get the benefits i would from a s13 swap (besides the billions of options for coilover brands) and none of the possible draw backs.


    car loks great tho man! any plans to swap to a jdm bumper?
