Default Project Hondatsun (F20C Swapped Datsun 510)

I guess it is time to start a build thread. A) So I can keep track of everything I’ve done, and B) So I can leverage the knowledge of the community!

History: I’ve owned two S2000’s (among a lot of other cars), both AP1’s. So the F20C is nothing new to me. About 4 years ago I started an Exomotive Exocet. For the past 3 years I’ve driven, and tailored the Exocet into what I wanted it to be. I just recently sold it to get funds to buy a house. If you care to view that build thread it can be found here:




Because I can’t leave well enough alone, and because I love projects I’ve bought a Datsun 510 that needed some love (and was pretty cheap).



It currently isn’t running, but it does have a ‘heart of gold’.




The car has been around the block, meaning under the owner from yesteryear once had a F22C in it. The car was then stripped and sold to someone else. That person then installed a F20C swap and then abandoned the project. The swap was performed by T3 (Techno Toy Tuning), who is a well known Datsun Tuner/Parts Manufacture. The swap was done correctly, and I understand that the person that has done the swap has done a few F20C swaps in Datsuns and AE86’s.




Now that brings us to present day. I’ve sense altered the header to clear the steering box. The header then runs to a muffler that is in the rear part of the passenger seat, and side exits on the drivers side.




What the car needs:

New fuel system. A fuel cell, pump, filter, and lines.

All safety related items replaced; seats, harness, steering wheel/hub, new front suspension

A new radiator, either custom, or making a s2000 radiator work

Custom driveshaft

Clutch lines, and brake lines

Some sort of intake

Lights; headlights, and turn signals

Wiring altered

Some sort of interior revamp; will likely start with lizard skin sound and heat control, and then go from there.

I’m sure I’m missing many things, but I’ll cover that as I move through the process! Anyways, I look forward to posting a lot and gaining knowledge along the way. I’ve already determined some issues that I’ll likely post about soon. Thanks for reading!

This has to be the most ridiculous ECU (Kpro) install ever. Had to pull the motor because removing the oil pan isn't possible because of the motor mounts/bar. Good news is, I can give her a new clutch/flywheel.

Also started working on the ECU A-connector and C101 connector harness:



There isn't much needed, but should be fairly simple. I plan on using this as a relay/fuse board/switch panel:

Because I have to remove the oil pan, and because this is a canyon/track car, I feel like I should replace it with a baffled oil pan. Because Blacktrax is right down the street, I feel like I should use theirs. I'm trying to keep this build cost-effective and am tempted to use Ballade Sports bolt in kit. Thoughts?

I personally went with Moroso, because its a true baffle with traps. Not just a slosh plate like the above designs.

Well I didn't even see that in my research, I just ordered the Moroso one.
