A few years back I purchased a 260z and instantly fell in love with Datsuns. I started this year by picking up a 280z on January 1st with the goal of building a fun track car. After some back and forth between engines and after having to put the project on hold to finish my Masters, I finally have the time to work on it. Ultimately, I settled on a 32v 4.6l build. The reasoning behind this was I was after an easily accessible engine that could put down reliable power and had no interest in the ls swap. One of my best friends is a huge mustang guy and his knowledge on the matter was another selling point for the Ford engine. If nothing else, the goal here is to have somewhere where I can lay out my thoughts and see the progress. For anyone interested in following along, you're more than welcome to check in every once in a while, check my instagram (projectdatstang), or find me on youtube (Eddie Huerta) as we will be doing our best to record and upload everything we do for anyone interested in replicating something we do, or for anyone who just wants to get a laugh from watching a couple clueless guys try their best at building a race car from scratch.
WTB: Fritts' 8.8 IRS swap kit. Will pay their original price. Ideally looking for the the cobra brakes version, but I can deal with whatever. Fun note: Ryan @ zCarDepot says they're in beta testing with their 8.8 swap kit. And Gabriel at Tech Toy Tuning is considering it as well, but is 3 months out on other projects. So hopefully we'll have competition on the market soon.
