    3800 Datsun 210

    Hey Guys! I plan to start my Datsun swap here soon and wanted to ask a few questions. Any help is appreciated!
    I Plan to use the entire drive train out of a 1997 3800 Firebird. Motor,trans,rear end, front and rear suspension the whole deal.

    When removing the motor/trans out of a 97 Bird is it easier to pull it out the top or just the whole cradle from under? I plan to go through the engine as i know little about the history, the guy claimed he rebuilt it but the
    shop must have forgotten the oil pump rod...... from what i can tell there is no rod so not sure if his info is reliable (Feel free to correct me on that)

    What are some key areas to look at on the L36 motor while i have it apart? Are there any typical areas that need extra help?

    I am still undecided on Going Turbo or SC or staying N/A, what are your thoughts? Given that its a completely custom build i have the opportunity to adjust the firewall to compensate for a SC but everyone like to go chu chu

    The Datsun its self is 1940lbs dry but the one i have has pretty much a drivers seat and thats about it, without a scale id estimate it close to 1k lbs considering it can be picked up by four guys,
    should I even worry about power adders or would stock or even some mild mods make it that much more fun?

    The plan for this car is to have something fun to drive to car shows, 1/4 mile rung what you brung, weekend warrior kinda deal.

    Ill post pictures of both the donor car and the project when i get a second Wish me luck!!
