Datsun/Nissan LZ20b DOHC Group 4 Race Motor

Alex Kierstein February 19, 2011 Quick Shifts 13 Comments

This 1980 LZ20b race motor is the same type that was originally fitted to the late-’70s/early-’80s Nissan Violet WRC cars, which won the Safari Rally in Kenya for 4 consecutive years. A race-only DOHC conversion of the existing and venerable L-block Nissan motors, this particular one made 210 HP in race trim. Incidentally, it also powered rally variants of the Skyline and Silvia. , in Japan, with no listed price and condition unknown. It’s probably worth a four-figure price just to have as a living room ornament. And for the love of Murilee, if you purchase this and it goes into your ice-racing 200SX, send us pictures!

    Hey awesome! It's the perfect companion piece to this.

    And $100,000 later, you'll have a car that might be semi-competitive in a modern amateur rally class.

      /passes the collection plate around

      that is barely bigger than the L18 Eleanor is currently sporting and its a twin cam!

        Probably shorter in height.

        None of that cam over rockers over valves nonsense.

    • Jump on it.

    This engine is not LZ20B. Look a like FJ20, maybe early FJ. I have LZ engine and it is totally different.


      There are two versions of the LZ cylinder head. First was rounded top, second was flat multi ribbed.
      This head look suspiciously like an early FJ20 to me.

      Any more info on your car?

  • Dude

    Yep, that's an FJ.
