It's a shame I'm going to hide this beautiful piece in the engine, but if I have to do it I will  ;D

Would you use new Nissan turbo head bolts or ARP head studs Peter?

Just wondering are you going to be running injection or carbs?

 

Just that in the past I have sandblasted the intake ports to help prevent the over fueling when you back off into a corner then give it a boot coming out. With the walls polished the fuel wets the walls and when you open it up the air flow rips the fuel off and you get a hesitation, but with them lightly sand blasted the surface has turbulence on it which keeps the fuel from wetting the walls and thus no hesitation from over fueling when you open it back up. Worked for me very well.

 

Also if you have to remove any more material from the chambers its not a bad idea to un-shroud the outside of the chambers next to the valves and even under cut them under the gasket line which also improves the flow.

Epic thread dig. There is a full build on the car in the member project section. It's running 6 Mikuni flat slides from memory.

 

 

Pete's ports aren't too bad though, he built me a 360hp L28.

It was modified further after the dyno run you are referring to Lurch. Cooling, exhaust and tune were all changed.
