Jobie’s Datsun 510

It is a small world when it comes to the Datsun community and we love being a part of it. Jobie brought his Datsun 510 to Z Car Garage for dyno tuning on referral from our good friend and overall-stellar Datsun dude, Troy Ermish.

Jobie’s Dime didn’t always look this pretty, as shown above left running a single carb Z24. James Johnson applied the paint and a year later the car was dropped the car off to Troy for a L20b/Mikuni 44 engine. Ermish Racing prepped the chassis with parts from Techno Toy Tuning on the front suspension, Troy’s Wilwood brake kit and bespoke rear suspension parts.  We are smitten by the stance on this thing, sitting perfect on nicely spec’d 14″ Hayashi Street wheels. Great choices in the interior too:

On the dyno we saw peak gains of 8hp/4tq for a total of 166hp/157tq at the wheels. The real improvements can be seen under the curves with consistently more hp/tq throughout the rev range:

The car is setup from open track enjoyment yet still street driven:

“I always heard Troy talking about bringing cars over to Z Car Garage for a dyno tune. I try to get the 510 on track ever other month or so. So far, it’s only been to Laguna Seca, but this year, I’m planning on track days at Sears Point as well”

Enjoy The Ride, Jobie!
