max121 Posted February 5, 2011 Report Share Posted February 5, 2011 looking at getting a lL18 with a87 head that needs rebuilt, called around for pricing one shop told me i need to port and polish the head for 500 and rebuilt for 600 and add a cam and then have it balanced down to the flywheel and he would sell me a intake. he was really knowlegable about datsun engines. this will be for my 510 i am looking for a motor that will last and have some power to spin the wheels is this too much to spend on a L18 i got about a grand to spend on a motor so i was wondering what are some essential things that i need to have done that wouldnt run the bill up to high. is there some work i could do to lower the cost? could i port & polish it myself? i want to stick with a L motor he also had a race l-18 that some1 couldn't afford and he would have to mill down the heads for me to make it run pump gas said it would be 2k so i guess to summ it up what do you guys think is nessesary for upping hp on a l-18 i know i could do some stuff later down the road thx for reading Quote Link to comment
