    Datsun 1600 Sleeper

    I have had this 1600 for around 11-12 years. I bought it with sr20 and different water to air intercooler. I got rid of the Microtech and started redoing everything. It was running, but everything (conversion wise) was rough.
    It now has a combination of Datsport and Maddat conversion components.

    I mainly use it for track days at Wakefeild and Powercruise Click image for larger version

    It was painted previously with rattle cans. I am a house painter by trade and may have painted it with brush and premium foam roller(around 4 beers and an hour and a half including prep work

    Its a good 10 metre paint job

          That is a cool jigger.

          Always have a soft spot for a tidy 1600


            That's a cool little sleeper!


              Love a good datto. Nice.

                A few people didn't like the water to air set up for various reasons. Too complicated. It is unseen and works. I don't like the look of big intercoolers hanging out the front

                Radiator fan on front and fan under rear on full time. 19mm hose

                Ice in reservoir for Powercruise and track cools it below ambient for a while

                Ambient air temp 20c. cruising Inlet air 30c ish. Idling in traffic reaches around 43 c and cools down to 30 ish after 2-3 km driving

                  Not quite as tidy as it looks in pics


                    Love me a good sleeper, well done!
                    I own a two and a half litre Commodore - 8.93 at 142mph


                      Love it.

                      I bet it gets up and boogies with that power to weight ratio


                        Nice datto, your young bloke's video was great


                          That's sweet love a sleeper


                            That's awesome. Good work.

                              You missed an opportunity to compliment him on his tidy Fiat 124.
