Its been a while and its not a 4by but its a cool project finally coming to completion so I'll share some build pics with you guys.
Its a 75 with a vg30de swapped in a ton of custom body work and interior work as well as a full stereo. Even the paint is a one off custom blend by yours truly

freakin cool man. used to hang with datsun freaks. every other weekend we would do slalom races in parking lots and went to westwood for races. 510s, 240's and 280's and 2+2's and fairladies were abundant.

I got the impression by some posts I've read, that you are a stereo guy. I'm guessing there's a whole lot more to it than that? Nice work dude!

The new one I'm building I quoted 13-14g's but it's getting more then just a motor swap. I'll be doing fuel management and chassis upgrades as well.

Drool..........My first car was a '71 240. Love what guys are doing with the engine combos now, rather than throwing in a SBC or 5L

I'd never do one of those swaps
the only v8 swap I'd do is an LS one gotta keep the weight down and the power up

There used to be a few guys that would come out to the street races (long time ago) running those swaps. Aging myself a bit , but like 17 years ago. Before Deltaport way became sooooo busy.
