Datsun Tuning Tips and Modifications

Maximise your Datsuns driving pleasure

Datsun car tuning tips and advice. Before Nissan came along we had the Datsun brand, a solid base and wide range of interesting and well build cars that evolved into the modern Nissan range we know and love today. We have a wide range of tuning articles covering all models of Datsun from small engined family cars to large engine hot hatches and executive cars. Following our tuning tips you will avoid many of the common mistakes and actually achieve the car set up you desire. Please join the forum for model specific questions and answers and to meet other owners and see what modifications they have done.

TorqueCars started providing Datsun tuning help, car modification and car engine tuning tips and pointers back in 2003 and have grown from strength to strength with a fast growing membership of all types of cars including many, Datsun owners. We are currently one of the fastest growing car tuning clubs around and certainly one of the friendliest. In 2007 we also organised our first full car show.

Our Datsun comprehensive modification articles on tuning and styling are kept upto date so for the very latest Datsun tuning,modification and engine tuning advice, tips and pointers please check back regularly. We strongly recommend that you join our Datsun forums and swap tuning ideas with like minded Datsun owners in the tuning forums.

We get to read about a lot of international Datsun owners projects in our forum and have an ever growing gallery so be sure to drop in and tell us what you’ve been upto with your car. Scroll down the page to see our latest tuning articles for your Datsun.
