    SR20 Datsun Roadster how to?

    I have a 240sx with an sr20 and hate 240's so Im looking at getting a roadster and swapping the stuff from the 240 to the roadster and then parting out the 240. Is there a write-up on how to? Whats needed, etc...? Ive done swaps before and have mechanical and fabrication skills but just wanting to know like what rear end can you use? Can you use the stock roadster rear end with a custom driveshaft or do I need to swap out the pumpkin and rear axles, etc... Anybody have experience with whats involved? Thanks.

    Awesome! Thanks for the links. I feel like I could make some of that stuff but sometimes its just easier to buy it. Still have questions about the driveshaft and rear end and stuff like that.

    Andrew,

    We would be more than happy to send you all the info you need regarding these awesome swaps into Datsun Roadsters.

    I have written a couple how-to threads at http://www.311s.org showing lots of detailed shots of our swaps. To see the engine swap section, you must join as a member, but it is free and only takes about a minute.

    We have been doing SR20 conversions into Roadsters for over 10-years now and have turned many "forgotten dreams" back into daily drivers.

    Feel free to contact me via my website http://www.spriso.com

    Until then here are a few examples that we have built;























    You get the idea... :lol:

    Let us know how we can help!

    I'd love to sign up on 311s.org but apparently Im not smart enough. Ive answered the anti-bot question of "what is this site about?" with answers like

    1. roadster
    2. datsun roadster
    3. datsun sports roadster
    4. 311s
    5. 310/311


    ETC..... Apparently I don't know what the site is about so it wont let me sign up.

    It's right there on the front page of the site http://www.311s.org/. Fourth paragraph:

    "Please visit the 311s.org forum and register. The answer to the registration anti-bot question is: -------- ."

    You were close on your third answer!
