Big Block 454 in Datsun 280Z

Soon after the 383 was killed a search for more power resulted in squeezing a 454 into this small and light car. It would be interesting to find out the weight bias having such a big motor in this car. But it seems this car was built for one thing only, going in a straight line. Other upgrades include aluminum racing radiator, reworked headers, and R230 viscous LSD. The owner reports a 0 – 60 in 3.5 secs. Project Assassin’s cardomain page
