Wanted - 240Z Cylinder head E88

I have aquired an L24 240z complete engine. Stripped it down as it was seized. Water in cylinders 1 &2 with lots of yuk. Overall seems in very condition in terms of the crank. Block is salvageable with a slight bore out and new pistons. Cylinder head very poor. Corrosion in the aluminium with deep pitting from super heated gases around 1 &2. Also it appears the head has been skimmed previously so I dont think it would be possible to skim it again as CR would be very high. Damage also to valve guides in cylinder 2 from hot gases. Someone obviously kept the car running with a blown head gasket resulting in further damage to the cylinder head. Probably repairable but I would prefer to obtain a replacement in good condition.

Hi. I've got a very nice E88 with 36ml chambers a moderate cam (Kent P284) and 44mm inlets with steel seats.
I'm not desperate to sell, but would for 500. Possibly not the sort of thing you're after but it's an option.

Thanks for the message. The setup does sound very attractive but my intention is to replace an L28 dual weber engine running in my car with an L24. My car, American import, is very original and clean and it is my long term intention to take it completely back to its original specification where possible. That said, the machine shop is checking all the tolerances of the parts I have. At this stage I have no real idea as to the condition of the cam. If its very worn, one lobe concerns me, perhaps I can contact you in the future?
Regards
Nick

Yeah no probs. I'm sure you will find a decent standard e88.
