I'm always looking for todays Datsun 510.  This feels close to the 510 concept.

So does it need a LSD? There doesn't seem to be many options out there for that. Maybe jus not necessary for DD?

The problem with the factory PS4 is the 7.5" wheel its strapped to. Since I will have to buy something for winter anyway this fall, I'm planning on upping the wheel width and run the PS4 on either an 8 or 8.5" wide wheel, and use the factory for winter tires. 

I think the car is perfect in stock form and honestly have no idea what the hell I'd do with another 40hp. As it is I am already in PMOPMIJ speeds off onramps in 3rd/4th so fast it's stupid. But as a nice, comfy daily good god does this thing excel. 

Also some of the best seats outside of an N that Hy/Kia has made in the last 20 years IMO.

Can you provide a link to the torque strut bushings you use?  Do they vibrate like crazy?  This seems to be a consistent weakness in all the Hyundai Kia fwd products.  They either flop like a fish or shake like crazy.  I'd love to find a mount that is a happy medium.

Also, these cars would absolutely benefit from a Torsen.

That's how it is with my soul, but the A/C on in neutral vibration is bad/a deal breaker :(

I have a stock one in one side of mine currently and poly in the other.  It doesn't have much nvh but the engine is so floppy it's insane :(.

If the yellow is truly "soft" urethane, I would happily try that in both sides.  I'd love to get my hands on some stock veloster N rubber pieces without having to buy the whole assembly.
