Little back ground with the car. Picked it u a little over a year ago with not to much knowledge of what i was going to do with it. I had purchased a project 510 with a SR20DE (green one in the first pic) that after playing with it for a month i figure was too much of a project for me to tackle

Image

so i decided to pic up this running L20b 510

Image

Image

for the next few month i slowly started gathering parts to make the car my own. i pieced together all the parts to do the 280zx conversion and since i was running 13's i had to source a new set of wheels

Image

Image

after getting the suspension and steering bits all fixed up i drove the car for a months taking it to meets and shows and loved every moment of it.

Image

Image

The motor was never something i wanted to keep and was toying with the idea of re building it or going big and doing an SR20det swap. I have always had a passion for performance cars but now that i had a steady job i knew it was the time to step up and do something that i knew i would love so when a deal came up for a full SR 510 swap i jumped on it and started the long journey of parts

Image

at first i was planning on simply getting the motor in the car and get it running as quick as possible but after a little time to think about it i decided to do it once and do it right. I wanted a properly built motor that i could beat on and not worry to much about messing things up. i picked up a big turbo

Image

Forged pistons

Image

Cams

Image

metal hg

Image

pulleys

Image

After i got enough parts to put the motor together i decide it was time to pull the old motor

Image

Image

once the motor was out i puled the rear end apart and replaced all the rubber with poly along with adding a little stronger rear R200 CLDS and got everything painted and undercoated then everything went back in along with some 240sx rear disk brakes

Image

Image

Got some better breaks

Image

Picked up some other goodies

Image

Image

Image

Image

now the car is at the point that it is today. waiting on a buddy that dose fab/ body work and hes gona help me with some odds and ends that im not comfortable doing on my own.

Image

got the motor bored and decked and everything checked out good. now im waiting on is a flywheel and a timing chain guide to get the motor back together and balanced

Image

Image

Image

im on ratsun alot more but ill be sure to update this when i can

Big day

As we were mounting up the trans we relized that one of the guid pins were broke off in the trans so we got that out

Image

After that we were ready to get it in the car

Image

Then once the motor was in cut the tunnel

Image

And beautiful!

Looking good. When its all together i'd suggest making a sheild to seperate the heat from the dp and dbmc.

I'm assuming you are going to do all the fab/mounting, etc, then pull it out for body and paint? Looks great so far...
