I was talking to Andy about an engine like this a couple of years ago. You may have just convinced me to pull the trigger...

Re: SPEC510 - The 18th Annual East Coast Datsun 510 Meet

Is there anything we should do beforehand?

I've got the car as ready as it's going to be and have tents and sleeping bags...

Re: 15x7 konig rewinds and fitment - tires ?

It's not a big deal. Looks like Duke has tons of pics of his car running that low, though.

Re: 15x7 konig rewinds and fitment - tires ?

Coilovers, 280ZX struts, 15x7 +0 rewinds, very little if any camber. I can take better pics if you want and/or try it out on the front this weekend. Right now it's pretty much flush with the fender. I don't have a slotted rear crossmember, though, so I can't help you there. Either way, it's going to...

That could be epic for the right price and with enough availability.

Re: Nissan IDx 10 concept is the new 510/Bluebird Coupe

I saw that it's barely longer than a miata... how about 188 HP from an MR16DDT and 2500 lbs? Same power to weight of a BRZ.

A quick photoshop to show a roof and pillars that match the rest of the car.

Re: Nissan IDx 10 concept is the new 510/Bluebird Coupe

First off I must say, you have the coolest user name in all the web land IMO Techromancer. When reading about the diminutive power plans proposed for the IDx it's easy to forget the 45 year time gap between these two cars. By todays standards the L16s design looks purely economy driven, but in real...

Re: Nissan IDx 10 concept is the new 510/Bluebird Coupe

Nope. And the L16 wasn't a powerhouse. But it had only 2100 pounds to push. It has been suggested that Nissan is getting their RWD platform from a modified version of the Juke AWD platform. That comes in at ~3000lb. Not a lot of engine swapping going on with modern cars. The electronics are becomin...

Re: Nissan IDx 10 concept is the new 510/Bluebird Coupe

But, no, you're not likely to find it in the IDx: "Nissan says it envisioned the car to be motivated from a powertrain with a 1.2-to-1.5L gasoline engine mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT)" I've seen this a lot on various forums. I think people are forgetting the L16 that came stoc...

Re: Nissan IDx 10 concept is the new 510/Bluebird Coupe

I went ahead and emailed Nissan USA to tell them that it would be cool if they made this (with the hope that they'd keep working on it).

Nissan: "we have no forum to accept unsolicited product suggestions at this time."

Then, maybe don't say you're "gauging public reaction."

Meh.
