datsun 1200 ute lwb


Recommended Posts

So not a whole lot has happened with this since stripping the 180 took up too much tine and space.

But now that thats all finished with ive started piecing together the bits to make up a trolley so i can get it to the blasters.

 

The real reason for this update is this beast

http://i1341.photobucket.com/albums/o743/seanRD/Mobile%20Uploads/20150802_114252_zpsg7deqtbu.jpgI picked it up this weekend, s15 sr20de with 57000kms on it.

The fact it came with this ecu http://i1341.photobucket.com/albums/o743/seanRD/Mobile%20Uploads/received_10153066961656094_zpshj1ppoqe.jpeg

Suggested there might be goodies in the engine. And there was!http://i1341.photobucket.com/albums/o743/seanRD/Mobile%20Uploads/20150802_114147_zpswhk7mimi.jpg

 

Tomei poncams 256° 11.5mm lift and retains the vct. Pretty happy with that

 

Also with the motor came with these hks headers

All in all pretty damn excited to get it all cleaned up and ready to drop in once the maddat order takes place

No datsport gear?? I bought a lot of gear from both over the years and while maddat is not bad stuff, datsport quality and engineering is on another level.

 

Also the motor is broken, the turbo has been misplaced.

Ive heard good things about datsport. But they dont seem to cater much for 1200's at all.

Where as maddat are pretty specific to 1200s with things like pre fabbed trans tunnels, speedo cables, clutch pedals, brake booster and clutch res relocation making the little annoying bits that bit easier.

Lol yeah i dont know what happened to the turbo. But this is easily the lowest kms motor ive ever owned by far

Zee its just a standard ecu, but tge sticker lead me to beleive it was flashed, along with the hks headers we thought there would be cams.

Also im not cluey on DE injectors, but they are nismo red in colour. If anyone can shed some light?

The sticker has me interested in what it has in it.

 

Can't remember what colour my DE injectors were, will have a look at my mates s15de injectors and let you know.

Yeah take cover off and post photo.

I would highly recommend ripping out whatever board is in it and putting a NIStune in anyway so you get it tuned on sweet sweet e85 and run heaps of timing.

Also cause the tune is probably for jap octane fuel anyways.

Yeah to be honest id want to run e85 and get a tune before running this so nistune seems the answer.

also itbs are not off the table yet so in saying that How does nistune go with itb setups?

plus one for datsport quality . on my last datsun 1200 i bought almost every item maddat sold and cant remember a single item i was happy with (quality and fitment) . my current sr20det datsun 1200 ute (i didnt build this one) has alot of maddat but has the datsport coilovers

ITB's are off the table because the 3k you will spend is not worth the 2hp you will gain, even if they do look and sound awesome.

 

Nistune will be fine on your non-itb engine. And ethanol and timing will make happy times.

 

Also that ecu had a whole lot of weird stuff going on inside it. Can u post a better photo? Close up? And one from underneath with back cover off also?

I finally did a thing!

got a bit of spare time to myself for once so knocked up this trolley with a combination of 30mm and 50mm rhs, and some special masters caster wheels.

it moves smoothly and finally allows me to get it blasted (and clean the shed a bit)

back in centre position ready for some real work to begin

So thats not a daughter board as such in the ECU, as in the ECU has not been "chipped", it is running standard maps.

That circuit board inside the ECU looks like it has a function similar to an SAFC, but just installed inside the case.

 

From what I can see, wires are:

Red = Power +12v
Black = Ground

Yellow = AFM Signal
White = Speed Sensor

Green & Brown = Cant really tell from pics, but I would say at least one of the is connected to the AFM channel on the PCB as I'd say the AFM pic track has been cut so this device can intercept the signal and feed something different back to ECU.

 

Anyway, strongly recommend not using this ECU, however if this is an Autech ECU you cant run NIStune either, they are not supported.

I believe you can get a normal S15 DE ECU and use that with NIStune, but would need to confirm this first.

Can ask on the NIStune forums if you like?? Tell me what the part number of this ECU is too...
