Tell us the story behind your ride. What made you pick this particular one? Where did you find it?  I Found this car on Craigslist for $300. I was looking for a 510/610/710 at the time, and this was too cheap to pass up Describe the modifications you've made. Where did you start,  what’s the most recent mod and what motivated it? The car came with a less desirable Z22 engine swapped in as opposed to the factory L20B. My original plan was to build an L/Z22 with an L head, but I've since changed directions and I'm working on a KA24E swap for the car. Most of the work has just been getting it running reliably, But I also am rolling on lowered suspension and have installed a Weber 32/36 downdraft in place of the factory carburetor Of all the mods you’ve made, which do you think offers the biggest bang for the buck? The Weber for sure, I bought the thing for $100 with an adapter kit, and i swear I gained 20hp according to the butt dyno How did you go about selecting the specific parts for this build? Any installation tips to share? What are you planning next? Next mods to the car are replacing my transmission with a short ratio 5 speed from a 280zx, installing struts and brakes from a 280zx, aluminum rear drums from a Datsun Roadster, and a KA24E from a 240sx What’s been the biggest challenge with this build? The wiring is a mess from the hacked together engine swap the previous owner did on it. I've had more electrical issues than anything with this car
