I've already had the fittings welded onto another rocker cover and had it soda blasted, also I want to do it black.

Thanks for the offer though bro.

Original rocker cover for this car soda blasted, AN10 fittings welded on front and side cut out to expose cam gears for tuning. Ready to paint...

Intake problems :? :? :? Just mocking up but the rusty pipe in the middle will be replaced with a 3.5" powder coated black aluminium section with a 10-15degree bend, when I can find one. Most bends are 45 or 90 degrees :(

Image

Bought a brand new Odyssey PC680 with a nice machined aluminium bracket, rivnuts fitted and battery secured neatky in the boot. Just need to feed the live through the car and earth it up from somewhere solid in the boot.

Image

Image

Few more goodies waiting to go on...

BPi 3.5" V Stack with matching (massive) k&n filter.

Image

Image

2 very important gauges, not a fan of gauges but these are not too big and are subtle when fitted with the black bezel.

Image

Hondata S300 already fitted to OBD1 P72 ECU.

Image

Image

Boomslang OBD0-OBD1 conversion harness, probably the best quality and most simple one out there.

Image

New set of Magencore KV85's.

Image

Aero Catches to go with my brand new Carbon Fibre bonnet.

Image


More updates soon :wink:

If it was me T, I'd get the intake custom made out of alloy and all tigged up in place with some nice steady curves.... will be easier to get it to fit and look alot nicer IMO.

Was just going to suggest that :) Just get it done solid maybe so it divides where it goes below the chassis (thru the hole below - silicone coupling) and that's it, your problems will be over 8)

Proper itb's is ££££, I would need a custom setup. A good plenum setup can make the same power, drive better day to day.

I wish I could have a nice aluminium intake pipe, but I don't know anybody that can bend that stuff, especially in 3.5". It's hard making something fit in these cars when they weren't really designed for this mark, like the 1" mc and edelbrock victor x combo. Then add a 3.5" intake pipe to the mix and you're really pushing it.

I'm all ears for someone that can bend me 3.5" ali and weld it up for me etc......

Coming together now. :top:


Pipe is easy, but depends if you are willing to travel. My fuel tank, radiator, catch tank, intercooler, suspension, rear brake setup, oil sump, engine mounts and more is all specced by me and custom made for the Datsun so sorry if I don't think getting a pipe made is a problem. :P


I'd recommend Pro Alloy in Suffolk, they should be able to do a very nice job for you, get it running with the current intake and a basemap and then drive it over to them, get them to make you a custom setup which will look great and flow well and you're sorted.

They made my fuel tank and are making my intercooler and radiator from my blueprints.

It's a hydro clutch setup on mine, with a cable to hydro convertor.

I might just use the current air intake setup temporarily and get a proper one made by somewhere after it's run in.

Dave, sold the TE37's, I really wanted 7j wheels.

Better yet, call me and we'll sort something out.

I've removed the 1" MC and I'm going to the move the prop valve a bit down, I think it should be fine then.

If not, il give Ade a call.
