    Ah ha you found it then Ben

    Chris it weighs about a 1000kg with a near on 50/50 distribution tractions as much as you dare but nice hot 888s on 10 inch rims and an LSD helps a bit

    These should help a bit though

    There JE good price to £650 a set with pins and rings 1/2 mm oversize so a nice fresh bore happening as we speak, FYI Ben and others IMO boosted S54s do crack the piston ring lands (high compression) take a close look at the pistons it had been breathing for a few months but still achieving 11.4 126mph 1/4 mile

    Fantastic. I owned the Datsun Samurai 260Z that was tested by motor magazine. Plate ended in rbc. It had 3 webbers, gas flowed head etc and a 0 to 60 in 6.5 secs, 150mph. In its day it was quick, I loved the shark front and the dash was way ahead of its time. Thanks for the write up, it takes me back, and these cars even modded are so valuable as you know.

    That piston is not pretty!

    I meant to ask, are you running the OE MSS54 ECU?

    All the pistons were like that, cracked lands, as for the ecu specialist components with a phormula knock sensor incorporated, controls the vanos and easy to manage on the laptop :thumbsup:
