    Don't think there is much more power to be had really since the N360 was considered indecently fast for its category when released in Japan. Though there were heads ported for twin carburetors in Japan, there was only one intake port on most engines.
    Anything is possible with enough determination though, some Japanese importing 600cc engines from the US and modifying these & twin-cam 4-valve-per-cylinder heads from a motorcycle to until they fit each other.
    Obviously there is always forced induction via Turbo or Supercharger that would also generate more heat requiring intake-cooling & additional oil cooling for the engine but with such rare engines fixing them if anything went wrong could be very difficult.
