    so what i have found out is the block is boared 40 over with flat top pistons out of a 280zx? the head was decked and the cam has spacers to raise it up the amount that was decked?.. and it has headers i want to paint the block and head also can you guys guid me in the right direction on if i should spay paint or powder coat it? the head is aluminum like you guys have said anyway to paint them? that won't fake and look bad? haha

    what do u mean by fully counter weighted? and it is! took it all apart and took it to an engine shop and they said its bored 40 over with 280z flat top pistons and why move it? it has headers already and it was left in the same place
