It's a pity they're such rust buckets. (Yes, they're even bad by datsun standards)
I know a few guys who are building them. My old supercharger kit is going into a sunny coupe. The guy is every bit as keen as I was ten years ago when I started too.

It's not hard to check.
Sit your head gasket onto your head with the locator dowels in place. With the ex valve springs removed, open your valves up, and measure how close the outer edge of the bore is to the head gasket.
Dont forget, the gasket will probably have a larger hole than your bore. So measure the hole in your gasket, and subtract half the difference from your valve to head gasket difference to see how close it actually is.

I ran a 42mm inlet with I forget what oversize (2mm maybe?) with no need for notching.
But as said, the inlet is offset more toward the middle.

These motors are very forgiving of "bonus tolerance"

Not hard.
Most motor part supply shops should have them. Or find someone with a cracked/soft head and get the valves off them.
Cleaning a head isn't a big job.
Before you get any head skimmed, or seats recut, have it pressure tested, and hardness checked.

That may be true, but getting carried away with lightening really is a case of death by a thousand cuts.
Does the car still have the factory handbrake? Have you removed the plastic sleeve?
I'm actually getting kinda foamed up about the ethos behind this thread.
There's a class of racing here where blokes with toyota starlets get their weight right down. Be awesome to see a 1200 lighter.

Another idea popped into my head driving home from work this arvo.
A friend got some titanium bolts off aliexpress. I was blown away how light they were. I probably wouldn't trust chinese ones on critical suspension bolts. But replace all your bolts with them and you'll be adding a little bit more lightness.

Maybe you already mentioned upgrading to lighter calipers earlier in this thread(?) But those 280zx calipers are bloody heavy. Everyone I know who rates them, (They are a pretty decent brake upgrade that still clears 13" mags) says, "oh, but it's not like you're racing". But you are.
I scored a pair of those ZX struts when I was parts hoarding. I was dismayed how weighty the calipers are. I'd expect you'd get a real world improvement there.

Remember, although they are light, those window trims are up high. effecting your center of gravity.
which is why I didn't suggest removing material from the Xmember, as doing so raises your center of gravity.

Take the stainless trim off the front and rear window rubbers.
