The USA spec 810 Maximas used  a 2800 cc Nissan 240 series engine derated to 2400 cc as its basic engine.  Good choice!

The Maxima badge says right on it DATSUN so it IS a Datsun and was so, through '84. Now if you feel that your liking it while others don't appreciate it for what it is.... welcome to vintage car ownership. They jealous.

We had a 79 810 wagon, loved it. Got totalled, bought an 83 Maxima wagon for replacement, hated it...super gutless ( I'm sure 810 5 speed vs. Maxima auto trans was most of it).

That's because all the 810s from 77-80 L24E had the P30 block very similar to the 240z P30 block they also had the 9mm rods like the Z and depending if it was a federal one it made 154hp and non federal made 125hp still peppy though. The 81-84 Maxima 910 got the L24E redesigned internally which got the weaker rods but did get the better N47 head that had peanut shaped valve chamber for better quench. Both are good cars but the 810 has more power.
Do it in a Datsun
