I agree with D, the GX head with the huge ports likely is a bit much for most A series builds that aren't a full race setup.

1902 cc A series with a Hitachi carb?! Why spend sooo much on an engine and downgrade it externally? I'd do that engine proper with ITBs at the very least, better have them send it my way.

I'm more and more intrigued with the E16 crank y'all are doing over there...may have to build one myself if I can get a strong enough trans behind it.

I guess if you're building a 400+ hp A series the 6 speed could be better, otherwise a 71C will live to more than what most A series will ever do. The 6 speed is huge, and the internal slave cylinder sucks, and shifter will need replacement too likely.

Get silicone hoses off eBay to rule out hose collapse and try to run a larger radiator with fan shroud if able.

Please post a link to one of his auctions for this. I can't seem to find anything on Yahoo Japan.

The whole reason for lowering compression for a turbo motor is last decade stuff. The reason for it was to help avoid detonation on pump gas at higher boost levels. You sacrifice off boost torque/hp and lower spool when you lower the compression. In my area, E85 provides the ability to keep higher compression with boost and still avoid detonation. So, I have no reason to lower compression if I go turbo. However, a strong metal or multi layer steel head gasket is ideal no matter the compression, just get the thickness you need to maintain .032 to .060 inch piston to head clearance so you don't mess up the quench and induce more detonation (Err toward the smaller distance, .032" as much as possible).

I'll be doing a 63 trans in my B310 at some point. I have both 60 and 63 on a shelf so I'll lay them side by side and see what the differences are.

While I'll always be a fan of the Grand National, it seems like it'd be a super tight fit in a Datsun Sunny as it fills the heck out of a big old G body engine bay. I'm at a hair under 300 rwhp in my 1200 with a lightly modded SR20. Wasn't cheap but its still Nissan and gets 35 mpg! Heck, guys are making 200 hp on a turbo A series, but that'll add up too breaking transmissions and such.

Couldn't you just install a dry gasket that blocks it off?
