FINALLY !!!
I have long wished for and dreamed about this! A cross-flow, hemispherical chamber Dual-overhead-cam 4-valve head for any L-Series Z:

Get ready Vinny; you're about to get real busy. So what if the whole swap costs about $20,000? :roll:

That is some great engineering! :thumbs_up:

Just think! That conversion then, would only cost about 5 times what I paid for my Z back in 1971! :shock:

Well, that's true.....but just think of how much it would increase the desirability and value of the common street Z!

In reality, it probably won't. Stock Z's seem to be getting the big bucks right now. Go figure! :shock:

If I had the money to do a big with one of these I would. I love L series engines, and exotic high performing engines. Even in a field full of Z's the odds on seeing another with the head are pretty much zero. Additionally the L engine really sings with it.....and it looks cool.

The twin cam head was available in Japan only, and was $10,000 back then and still alot of money just to go fast. I know who Tony D. is, very knowledgeable guy when it comes to Z cars.
