WTB - E88 EFI Cylinder Head.

Recommended Posts

FWIW i don't think you will find efi E88 in anything that was delivered in OZ. A US 280z maybe

 

I sold the motor out of my MR30 hatch and it was n47, are you sure that's not what your after has a more desirable chamber shape

The R30 skylines did have E88 EFI heads. I'm sure I've seen them before in Junk Yards.

No, chamber is the same, the later E88's just had the notches for the njectors.

Ports are all same size.

 

Mike, I have a virgin O5L head here. And a P90, to compare it to alongside.

Can sell

 

Can you please post photos of these side by side? I'm very interested in the combustion chamber shape of the 05L head.

I believe it came of a 2L series 6. I had a 79 fairlady with a 2000cc 6. But it had a Y70 head on it and it looks very close to that. So my guess it is from a 2 litre engine and someone removed the runners from the exhaust .Started some porting  but compared to a N42 you will be there for a while with the die grinder.

Gav is spot on. They came off the R30 Skylines, I know cause I had 1/2 a dozen of these babies & only have 2 left which I'll be using on my L14 speced L28's. I'm pretty certain the N47's have the same cc (have one of these too), only problem is u have to remove the steel ex inserts.

Hi pauly_adams, it's not the common ol' garden variety E88 that came on the L26 that I'm chasing. It's an E88 efi head that came on a Skyline MR30 hatcback (1982 I think). It has fuel injector notches on the intake ports (like an N42/P90) and very small combustion chamber, small valves and ports. The engine compensated the small CC with deep dished Pistons. It's for a Group Sc competition engine. The small CC aids very high compression required to make HP with small displacement. Technically and legally you are not supposed to add metal to heads. Only allowed to remove, hence my "head-hunt".

i have 2x carb E88 heads, one a very early one similar to the E31, other is a later one, i have 1x E88  EFI from a R30 skyline, i also have 2xN42 head and a Nm47 from a R30 also

Nissan got away with using the E88, notching it for injection, etc as it was fitted to a2.4 litre block running the standard 7cc volume dished pistons.

Any larger engine capacity and the compression would jave been a bit high, this is why later or 2.6 litre or 2.8 litre heads had larger combustion chambers.

 

The O5L has small combustion chambers as it was only fitted to a 2 litre engine, 7cc dished piston for low comp, and ran a tiny weeny Turbocharger, L20ET.

Stick that on a 2.4/2.6/2.8/3.0 and same effect.

It's all to do with cylinder displacement, bigger volume, more stuff to be sqashed up, into a small size chamber.

 

Gav, yes, one day,,,, i should pull them out, and put them both up and take pics.

When will this site allow me to upload pics direct from the Ipad? ( image file size too large,,,,,)

Hi Jason,

OK - as I know you do know your Datto's...

 

What you are saying is the E88 head that is on my original 1972 L24 motor is in fact the same combustion chamber size as the E88 injected head I managed to secure...?

What pistons were in the small bore L24? IIRC they were flat tops, or the very shallow dish?

The CC's may have varied by 1 or 2 cc due to later valve sozing and other protrusipns.

E31 was the gun head. Bit Rocking Horse do do though!

Hi Jason,

The Injected L24 had dished pistons in it...sitting in my garage ATM fully wrapped in clear plastic :)

 

BTW its available for sale if anyone can use it (fully reco. by GEM in Melbourne - BUT now minus the E88 head)

Mike, i have taken some comparison measurements of the O5L and a P90

Both of which I am selling.

Intersting that the short side radius hump in the ports is not there on both ( better flow)

Ports on o5l are small, but easy to open, as are valves.

The chambers are at 37cc!

On a 1.5 mm overbored 260 block, there 'd be a fair bit of compression, even after unshrouding the valves!

 

Welcome to come by for a looky see!

Mike,

 

Not quite as rare as rocking horse poo, but very rare. You need to search far and wide and must be prepared to pay up for it.
