Yeah. Do you have the original dash and grill?

Too bad on having the later grill and dash. I managed to find both for my '69 Bluebird four-door. I assume you have the whole later dash including glove box? You know what that means - more pictures!

If you have not already, check out The 510 Archives. 3GB of Datsun 510 information, including The Dime, Quarterly backissues. DQ 8.1 was the all-Coupe issue. Nothing you probably don't already know, but might be helpful as you track down the correct trim and badges, etc.

tycot1 here on The Realm makes and sells rockers, if that's an area you'll be needing to replace.

And find Derux's thread in the Classified for his trick license plate adapters.

Tons of people with SR20 experience here on The Realm. Grab the FSM for your specific engine and check out threads like goichi's old Coupe thread wherein he swapped the SR. Lots of other posts here and there in the Engine Swap forum, other people's Project threads, etc.

oh, I was just running the stock internals, stock turbo, stock wastegate, the only things I changed were the intake and exhaust manifold and a slightly tuned ECU from MINES. I never dyno'd it either, I would make a safe guess at about 220hp to the wheels?? But that's just a guess, it could be more or less. If you want more than that you need to talk to someone that knows more about High Performance tuning.....an expert. I was just so happy how it ran and the power that it made, it was plenty for me and it was a blast to drive.
