Recently aquired a 1972 240z with 108,112 miles. Having an new extra vg short block laying around and a set of cima heads and manifolds, I decided to swap the vg into a s30. Not sure on what turbo I will run, but im looking into compturbo 6262, or a borgwarner s200. Looking for around 550-600hp. Heres my list so far: Stock motor with ported cima heads and jwt springs relocate position of turbo from driver to pass. side (not enough room to keep on driver side) aeromotive fpr walbro 485 pump -6 feed and return line id1000 injectors compturbo or borgwarner turbo custom top feed fuel rail turbosmart wastegate boost controller R32 gtr front brakes calipers with custom bracket (I will be running 16" so I will try to fit the largest rotor in them. custom intake manifold with q45 throttle body had a pair of ARC z32 intercoolers laying around that I will have modified to a single. z32 brake booster, master cylinder and possibly pedal z32 clutch master and possibly pedal possibly z32 diff installed and thats where im at now. The paint on the car will be redone. I purchased a new center console, new seals from black dragon and a bre rear spoiler. The respray will be porsche's carrera white
I run a speed/customs shop in SLC, UT I have a customer wanting to look into either an engine swap, or turboing his VG30E. We are wanting to keep things Nissan/Datson and preferably Z car. I've been doing research the past few days. I was thinking of doing a VG30DETT swap, but I'm not finding much on it. I see a few people saying they were doing the swap, I find two lack luster videos of a car that had the motor fitted, exhaust system in but incomplete plumbing for the coolant system and no video of the car actually running. I found one video with a z31 supposedly running a VG30DETT only showing the gauges. According to what I have found it is virtually drop in with z32 trans, minus modified oil pan or swapping for z31 oil pan.Obviously exhaust and turbo routing is custom, One spot said shifter had to be modified another didn't. Obviously running all new electrical and either stand alone or z32 ECU, modified driveshaft, but what else? He wants to do forced induction, more specifically turbo. I enjoy the unique, but also don't want to spend time and money I won't make back. If I build the VG30E what parts are readily available as far as internals are concerned and what have others done to get the most out of the VG30E? Thoughts, ideas from those experienced with this platform? Thanks in advance.
