PROJECT LS1 280Z V8 Conversion Version 2.0

1978 Datsun 280Z

My son and I completed the conversion of a '76 280Z to a LS1 engine with a T56 6-speed transmission.

There was an unfortunate accident which totaled the 1976 Datsun 280Z

We bought a 1978 Datsun 280Z to start Version 2.0 of the conversion

I will start over again, salvaging as much as I can from the '76 Datsun 280Z

The 1978 Datsun we just purchased has not been driven since 1997.

I am driving it around town now with no major issues. Even put the old wheels/tires on
