I've been a lurker here for MANY years before I even had my 260z. Several Z31's have been in my fleet but about 4 years ago I found a S30 that I was able to trade for a motorcycle. The car was in good condition and ran but being the gear head I am I wanted more power and a LS motor in it. My build isn't perfect and there are some things I would like to go back and change at this point but... It's a work in progress. I'm to the point were I can just now drive and start tuning.

 

A lot of things have happened since I started the build. I put up a shop at my house, had a daughter and now have a son coming any day.

 

Just bringing it home

Then I took it over to my friends grandpas house to start making changes

I removed the dash added a cover and Autometer Gauges. I ended up rewiring all the gauges through a single connector to make future disassembly easier.

I then moved onto the seats, I chose a Summit Racing seat which I'd advise against due to the amount of cutting involved to make them fit.

Once the interior was back together I changed front calipers to Toyota truck, replaced ball joints, started installing busing kit, master cylinder, proportioning valve, struts, chevette springs and ST sway bars.  I now am thinking about coil overs.

So I was able to get a shop build and hauled all my junk from my buddies place home so I could hopefully work on it more. I also picked up a Z31 from the original owner to drive around while I worked on the S30.

Over the years I was lining up parts for the V8 using Dirty Dingo mounts, CD transmission, block hugger headers, added 3rd joint to steering shaft, I'll just let the pictures do the talking. The gist was to locate all the parts needed the specialty guys were selling and buy them at half the price.. My daughter showed up during this period and really slowed down progress but that's ok...

Then I made a wiring harness, ordered a drive shaft from Fast Shafts, and started tuning.

And it moves, Trying to figure out how to make this thing run right with out paying for a tune.
