Gas Monkey Garage Present Their Very First JDM Car at SEMA – 1975 Datsun 280Z

Fenders have been widened and treated with ZG flares in order to accommodate wider Nitto NTO1 tires. RAYS Volk Racing wheels are what’s wrapped in them sticky tires, and behind them lurk Wilwood brakes. Final touches are courtesy of a BRE rear wing and unavoidable original Fairlady fender mirrors.

Big Mike, however, really likes to show off with the engines. Instead of the steady original 6-cylinder, he’s decided to go with S14 Nissan Silvia Blacktop SR20DET mill. Although it has two less cylinders, SR20 packs quite a punch. Thanks to a Garrett GT3071 turbocharger, mostly. Final setup generates around 400 horsepower, but all that firepower wouldn’t mean a thing without a proper driveline. This is where Silvia’s own 5-speed manual transmission with Q45 R200 differential comes in handy.
