    I have no idea...the dealer selling it in Japan didn't really know either. I get the feeling it's got a stock cam in it, but as to what compression pistons and whether it's got a ported head etc, I've got no idea.

    Basically I think I'll have to sort out the carbs, tune it as best I can and then dyno it to see what power it makes. If it's say 100rwkw or so then it would be internally stock I think.

    Yep cool, that's kind of what I was getting at. Followed with a nice polish of bits and pieces like you mentioned, it will look tops!

    Umm...in theory if the carbs and clutch slave can be sorted early next week, then it would be ready to go in for engo say the end of next week or early the following week.

    I'd imagine it would feel a lot like a Zed to drive

    Back in the day he was one of the main works drivers for Nissan:
