Add an oil return line to the oil sump (for the turbo oil feed)

There is a lot you can do, but it's all quite unnecessary for an engine kept below 6000 rpm. As long as your A15 has been rebuilt to Datsun specs, it's all good

The most important thing will be the EFI tuning. Is critical to keep the timing below detonation and keep a/f ratio from going lean, either on of which will destroy the most strengthened engine and can destroy rods, pistons, valves or head gaskets. Keep it all under control and a stock A15 can put out 120 hp with all stock internals

Nearly everything is better suited to the A15 instead of A12 -- A15 has more HP and more torque. But more importantly, most A15 come with oval port head, Very few A12s do. Also consider that most A15 has slightly lower compression than most A12. And stock A15 is ready for 15 psi boost (rods, pistons and head gasket are already capable)

I don't know if it will work on the 1200. The kit instructions list a lot of Datsuns but not the 1200

Here is what Datsun racing dept. recommended for the Datsun 1200. Not a product kit (a la Nissan Competition) but instead an effective stiffer bushings: Tension Rod and Bushing Modification

Yes, same as Z car, it replaces the flex point -- which is the end of the rod away from the A arm

notice the list of cars. Basically everything except B110

Anybody know this car? I'm wondering if it's BeeJJ's old sedan (the orange one)

Do you mean lifting struts? The problem is the bonnet (hood) is not stiff enough, but extra bracing could be added, resulting in a slightly slower car?

Nice!

But looks like a 1974. Maybe 1984 refers to the old-school Toyo motor
