  1. Z32 Vg30dett Awd

    Doesn't look like there are any Nissan VG AWD parts, so it's either R32 parts or possibly VQ35 AWD parts. I'm leaning towards R32 parts because of the similarity in age of the cars, and the similar suspensions and transmissions. The R32 oil pan will definately need some massive mods though!
  2. Z32 Vg30dett Awd

    Well, this particular forum seems a bit sparse, so how about we discuss the possibility of a totally insane VG powered AWD Z32? As the title suggests, I'm starting research and planning on converting my Z32 into an AWD. The goal is to keep the torquey VG engine, which is obviously going to provide plenty of challenges! I know an RB26DETT or VQ35 AWD swap might be easier, but the goal right now is to figure out if this can be done with the VG. Obviously there will be a lot of measuring and modifying to make this work (luckily I have access to tonnes of used Nissan parts and shells)! I'm open to any input anyone has in terms of building an AWD VG30 Z32 (if you have ideas on other engines, please keep them confined to other threads ). If anyone knows of any model of Nissan that used the VG30 engine and had an oil pan with an integrated front diff, that would obviously be helpful! I'll be searching through Nissan FAST and Parts Master to see if I can find any other parts that might make things easier! Here are my initial thoughts on parts and work required, based largely on using R32 GT-R front driveline parts and modifying them for the Z32: - Fit R32 GT-R front wheel hubs to the Z32. - Fit R32 GT-R front cross member to the Z32. - Modify R32 cross member and build engine mounts for the VG30 engine. - Modify R32 GT-R oil pan/front diff to fit VG30 block. - Modify VG30 oil pickup to fit customized GT-R pan. - Modify R32 front axles for length if needed. - Modify R32 transmission bell housing as needed. - Modify R32 transmission bell housing for starter as needed. - Modify transmission tunnel to provide space for the R32 transfer case. - Swap rear diff gears to R32 GT-R ratio. - Install G sensor and diff controller. - Modify Z32/R32 rear driveshaft to fit. Anything else I'm forgetting (I'm sure there is), or any other suggestions in terms of AWD parts from other Nissan's that might work better than the R32 GT-R front diff? Thanks for any input! Mike
