Hello every one first post on this forum, I am usually on the510realm.com figured i post in this since its the second most active forum that i have found dedicated to old school cars.. Little bit about myself I am 24 and live in San Diego California and i work as a Volkswagen technician for the last 5 years.. I got into cars when i was in high school mostly honda civics. after six civics and a couple of those got stolen i decided to go old school and bought a 1971 datsun 510 with a 22r and 5 speed transmission.. The car has been in my possession for about two and half years. My plans for this car have been to make it look close to stock but with a beast of an engine, that's why i went with a v8 but not an American v8. I went with a modern Japanese v8 out of a 91 lexus sc400.The current status of the car is down, the engine is in the car,engine mounts have been fabbed up aswell as the transmission tunnel and transmission mounts..Engine management will be taken cared by megasquirt and all my gauges are autometer nexus gauges.. well enough talk and here are the pictures
this is how it looked when i got it..

Image
after three months in the body shop this is how it looked
Image
Image
put back together
Image
Image
22r engine
Image
this is how it looked prior to removing the old motor last feb.
Image
Image
and finally this is the new engine in the car
Image

here are the engine mounts

Holy cow!!
Nice pick on the motor

It would be cool to have my VQ and your SC400 powered 510 together on some meet.

What are you using on the rear diff?

Sorry for not responding work has been slow and have not had much time to work on the car,since i last posted the cross member is done and both engine mounts are completely finish, The rear diff that is on the car i don't know what it is, it was on the car when i bought it and it has no markings or stickers.. I bought a r160 vlsd from and early svx.. I just need to make some adapters for the u joints and then im going to buy the wolf creek racing cv kit.. For cooling i am using a radiator off of a early vw rabbit and a scirroco radiator fans. Here are som pics of the mounts and cross member and steering rack..

the steering rack is not done yet only one mount has been made, the other mount will be similar..

Great job! I wonder if the Torsen differential from the JDM Toyota Soarer version of the original Lexus SC400 could be "persuaded" to fit.

hey thanks a lot, il stop by tomorrow well not in my dime but ill cruise over say whats up..

got the steering rack mocked on to the cross member and ran into a small problem, the tabs for the steering rack brackets are too long and only have like 2 inches of ground clearance.To solve this i am going to raise the car one inch all around and make the tabs smaller to get extra clearance. oil pan to ground clearance is four inches, the joint thats on the steering column will need to be changed to allow more angle so it that it will work with the steering rack..

Image
I have bump steer spacer so the lower control arm will be straight and not at a angle like this pic

Damm too bad you could'nt rotate those steering tabs a bit to get em away from the ground. I know the welding has been done already but i think different braces can be added so you can leave the ride height alone. If i see you Thursday ill explain better.
