About sr510.com

This site is dedicated to my datsun 510 sr20det engine conversion. I have spent over 4 years building up this car and over that time have learnt alot about the highs and lows of undertaking an engine conversion. Which ultimately led to a complete rebuild of my Datsun 510.

Don't get me wrong I have thoroughly enjoyed building my datsun 1600 otherwise know as a Datsun p510 in the states.

I hope through reading this site you are able to gain a good insight into starting your own build and realise that anyone can build modify their own car. I have to stress that if you are about to embark on a project such as this then you are going to come across many problems that really test your patience and problem solving skills.

As you can see the my datsun 510 sr20det engine conversion is almost complete. I have a few minor things to complete such as painting the front 1/4 panels, hooking up the handbrake and getting an engineers certificate.

Apart from that the sr20det is running beautifully and goes like a scolded cat!
