So I've had a 1972 Datsun 510 4 door for years. The stock engine was too slow, so I swapped it for a KA24E. I never got that running right, and have always been a Honda guy, so I decided to swap in a Honda engine. Since I like to do things differently (Make things hard for myself...) so I decided not to do an S2K swap. I decided that I'd do a K-series Honda.
I had some guys ask about the swap, so here is what was done (so far).
Here is the car.... when it was running:
My brother smashed his Element into a telephone pole.... which made it easy to find a donor.
A bit of cleaning and paint makes it look less like a pile.
For a transmission I wanted to have a 6spd. I looked at the Miata, S2K and the RX8 transmissions. I was going to use an RX8 transmission because they are cheap to buy. When I went to pick one up as a mock-up (for $25) I wasn't paying attention, and ended up being given a Nissan 350Z transmission. They are known to be heavy duty and with the turbo plans, I figured it would hold any power I put into it.... so may as well use it. Only problem, they are HUGE. Here it is next to the 5 speed 240sx transmission.
