Ok I have a 1978 280z that i'm just trying to get back on the road. the head that was on the engine when i got it is trash, it is cracked between the intake and exhaust valves on all cylinders. I know that this can be fixed (if the cracks aren't too deep) but my sisters ex boyfriend pulled out the exhaust liners when the car was hers. I have an E88 head off of a 1974 260z. I know the static compression ratio is going to be slightly lower if i use the E88 head on the N42 block, due to the smaller valves, and dished pistons, but the cam that's in the E88 head is marked "C" which my research shows it to be NISMO which will raise the dynamic compression ratio. I know the e88 head is going to need the fuel injector holes drilled as well as a few intake manifold bolts. i know that i'm going to need to make a block off plate for the mechanical fuel pump, and i plan on using the exhaust manifold off of the 260z. I would like to just get my baby back on the road, i would like to be able to get the larger 280z valves installed before i get it back together, but i just need to get it back and running.
before i realized the original head was cracked i purchased some valve guide seals for it. will the valve guide seals for the N47 work on the E88?
If i goofed on anything or you have something to add please chime in =)
