    72 Kgc10 GTX build tread

    This will be a build tread about my 72 GTX Skyline. I bought the Skyline in Long Beach in Feb 2006. The car seemed to be in good shape minus a motor. The P O supplied a Nissan reman engine out of a Maxima. I had to find a oil pan for the car, that was no easy feat back then. I sourced a pan, and when it showed up it looked like the car hit a pot hole at 60 mph. After repairing the oil pan to working order. I installed the motor and the journey begins. I guess i was so excited I only took one pic the first time i saw the car and bought it.The next couple of pic's are when it was delivered to the Nissan dealership my Dad worked at.

    I had the Sub frame rails extended all the way to the back of the car. I figured it would be necessary with the expected horsepower from the motor. I couldn't have been more happy with the out come. I prepped the floors by removing the tar sound deadening with dry ice. Guy talked about about doing it and my welding supply sales it by the ton so i gave it a try and it work great. I had to enlarge the tunnel slightly for the CD009 6 spd. Here are some prep pictures of the 6spd tranny with the JWT bell housing adapter and CBF shifter

    I leaned the motor over to the other side to gain more room for the induction system and I figured that if it worked for the S20 engine it would work for me. There is a little more to it than that but maybe later. it leaned over 10 degrees to the 1 o'clock position I modified the cross member and one of the motor mounts. The mock up block is a LD 28 so the height was right for both the hood clearance and the header.

    I had been planning on a RB 3.3 with throttle bodies and a nice stainless steel header. I had collected almost all the part to build the motor except the RB 26 cylinder head. I stopped by my local Engine builder who I've know for more than 30 years. As we where talking about the engine build. Let me back up a little bit my good friend was encouraging me to go a different route. He said keep it and L based motor. The car might have a higher value if to maintain a L based motor. Back to where I was. Talking to Dave the engine builder about the RB and the HP it would produce. He turned the conversation to a new cylinder head that a guy out of Florida was making. He went on to say it's a twin cam 4 valve. So long long story really short I decided on a 3.5 Liter twin cam 4 valve cylinder head that out flows the other head Better known as the Datsunworks head. Tha last time I drove the car was to take my 10 year old to a local ice cream shop that was last Oct. I would like to say I been busy and a lot has gotten done but you can be the judge. Lets began the prep work. Some where along the way I stared to strip the paint and primer the car. The body can see all the flaws

    Here are some old engine bay pic's from early to Late. I install a bone stock engine I was just looking to make it go down the road at the time. I fell into a great deal for a set of 44's and a header for $ 600.00. I was planning on running a set of S.U.s and a cast manifold. I still have the motor it's for sale cheap 20170521_154227.mp4

    Here are some rear brake and suspension shots. The diff is a R192 Locker in black paint. Design Produces did the front and rear cross member with monoball construction. R192 next to a R180

    Because of the tire issue I started with the suspension and brakes. I joke with my buddies I only want to do things twice. Im on my 5 version of the rear brakes & second on the front

    Thanks it been along time coming. Im hoping to install the motor by July but that might be a dream. The body work comes right after the drivetrain is sorted.

    It had a small leak after I worked on it. It drove me crazy I just pulled it to do an engine swap.

    I just found a pic of the oil pan. I was so upset with the seller and the situation I stopped working on the car for months.

    It's been a long time since I've looked at these photo's car came with 14" Wats. When the car was shipped over I guess they just throw some used tires on the wheels. The front tires where install with camber wear but instead of installing them like this / \ or like this \ / they where installed like this //. The first time I drove it on the freeway and the tires caught a seam in the asphalt the car darted a full lane over it scared the hall out of me. I thought for sure all the suspension was shot. It took me a little bit to figure that one out. The rear wing and front spoiler where removed for transport.
