Thanks man. That's true and I was a little disappointed to not have any room for improvement, but I couldn't beat the price I paid for it, especially for a car with only 20k original miles. Also, it has $25k invested, the guy gave me the receipt.

I like my four barrel and soon to be triple Weber carb setup. Forced induction is a hell yes, but for the amount of work, I'm thinking SR2XDET.

SR swaps are retarded. Going from a 6 to 4 is so backwards...

A Datsun with anything other than a straight six or American V8 is wrong.
