michael wales Posted January 12, 2015 Share Posted January 12, 2015 (edited) Ok so I've thinned out my car collection and put in its place a 280z parts car and an L28 project build. This is my first ever engine build so I'm looking for some guidance and help from the great knowledge base we have here. I'm going for a streetable 2.8 (around 200hp). Its not my daily just my toy so it doesnt need to be perfect or cost lots of $$$ but i want to do it right. I'll be upating this thread as I go. I already have triple webers (2 sets) a spanish set of 45s and some itialian 40s. 45s are on my current motor, a basically stock l26 with an E88 head, MSA headers and MSD ignition. new motor is a 77 L28 with with N42 head. seems stock other then the after market looking retaining caps on the valve springs. cam reads EP40 in the front H-30 in the middle and 01 in the rear if anyone knows what the signifies. First question, can the MSA header from my E88 head transfer over to the N42 and if so is it a "better" head? once i establish this I will have more questions as to further enhancements I should do during the rebuild. thanks for readingand feel free to chime in with any good lessons learned or tips you think might help along the way. The build is being done in the Norfolk, Va area and if you know any good local shops for the work that will need to be farmed out please let me know. pics to follow this initial post!
