I know these are rare as rocking horse poop, but I'm after one for a race engine. Bare casting or fully assembled, I care not. Just thought someone may have one lurking in their workshop. Thanks.

Thanks Phillay - it has the E88 casting designation, but has a very small combustion chamber.  The ready reckoner is the injector notch in the top of the intake port (like the N42 & P90).

Cracker, my understanding is they come in an early, fuel injected, skyline.

MR30 skylines - most were hatchback style & not many left...

Last time I saw an actual car was 10 years ago in a wreckers yard :)

However, the motors should still be lucking around :)

The MR 30 Hatchback is not the prettiest of cars, is it Richard?

Jason, any lead on these elusive heads would help. Ta.

I got that Y5 L head here, port runners same as a P90 shape, but smaller chambers. It's a virgin, be a very good base for development.. Thats for sale.
A couple of P90's, not for sale, yet.

That bloke in Jindalee, was wrecking a couple of L24E cars, but cant find him, will keep looking.

Thanks cracker, that's the one! I'm a bit disinclined to buy a whole car, ship it to Brizvegas from the Apple isle for $100 cylinder head.  The benefit of the E88 EFI head is its small combustion chamber. This is for a Group Sc engine. It will be very high compression.  The rules don't actually allow you to add metal, only remove.  I thought I found one here in Brisbane thanks to a lead from dat2kman.  Dragged a mate out on Saturday morning when it was about 36 deg C and 99% humidity to an MR30 in paddock in knee high snake infested grass.  Got stuck into head removal and fortunately my mate checked the head casting number, before we got too far, to find it was an N47! The E88 EFI head only comes in the hatchback not the sedan.  Thanks again for thinking of us.

No problem - you taught me something new and I thought of this thread when I saw it! (I also had no idea it was only worth $100) Maybe give the seller a call and let them know you are interested in the engine head, just in case it gets sold to a wrecker. It doesn't exactly look like a $2100 car... haha

From what I have read 05L heads are good bases for a "clean canvas" port job because the intake runners and valves are so tiny.

Mike260LW will be looking for specifically an E30 or E88 head as they are the only castings permitted for use in Group Sc racing... And the E88 EFI head specifically so he can comply his car I assume as a 280Z with fuel injection.

I don't want to go through the debate about group S again but those technical regulations are crazily restrictive!
