Thanks, Toyota powered, like this one.... Can you find 510's in Europe?

 

Yes, the 4-door and wagons were common cars here in the days, but theres not many left.... They were named 1300, 1600 and 1800. But the 2-door was not sold in Norway, maybe further south in Europe.

 

Think i have to find me a 2-door from US, and ship over to Norway. My Z is also a US car, the previous owner is Rayapp here at the forum:)

It's alive!!

 

After a couple of weeks working on wiring the whole car, we had the first startup a couple of days ago.

Just some tidying up in the wiring mess now, and fix some fuel leaks... Then I will install fenders and front and start testing/mapping.

 

The sound of the engine with all trottles fully open is AMAZING! :)

When you "joined" UZ and the r154 did you use a full bell housing like this " http://www.ebay.com/itm/1uz-1uzfe-toyota-Bellhousing-R150-R151-R154-gearbox-/280979269056?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item416bab65c0&vxp=mtr "

or did you use an adapter plate? I am collecting parts for this swap now :) !!

 

I bought a full bell housing with flywheel ant clutch from http://www.dellowconversions.com.au/

Sweet!

 

1UZ's are crazy reliable. My SC400 has over 300K on the clock now, and doesn't burn a lick of oil. I just recently supercharged it too using the Lextreme "Fish" bracket.

 

What are you using for engine management?

 

I'm using Megasquirt MS1 Extra with MS relay board

Looks like you didn't have to do any cutting / sectioning of the oil pan? I saw on some other 1UZ swap threads that large chunks of the oil pan need to be sectioned out and welded back in. So on a left hand drive car, the engine fits without any clearance issues. 

 

Are motor mounts pretty simple like the LSx, just fab up mounts that bolt to the factory Datsun holes and the 1UZ mounts? 

 

Any other clearance issues, steering, crossmembers, brake cylinders to worry about?

 

This looks like the way to go, I've been toying with the idea of LSx swap, but was never really keen about a truck motor in a light quick car like the Z.

flanges on the stock exhaust manifold need to be cut of and lengthened. other than that the sc400 motor fits like it was made to be in there.
