I think I read somewhere on here that a member attempted it, but it didn't fit because of the turbochargers and the manifolds. So he went with a VG30DE

thanks, yes my concerns were clearance side
and bottom of the motor. it would be just too
sweet to have it drop right in....

This is the only S30 I've heard of with a VG30DETT.

I had a 260z with a VG30DET in it,man it was a tight fit,they are a tall wide motor but they are built for boost...better head sealing than an RB due to the head bolt setup,hate to have an extra turbo in there and then try and work on it though

Hello, I just bought one of these great engines however when i got it, it was from a used parts shop n they didnt know which car it came from. I have the engine and the tranny, and the wire loom is broken. I am trying to find which car this engine was originally in so we can get a diagram for it. it is the gray top like yours. which car did u originally get yours from please. thanks in advance.

I have one of those single turbo vg30 motor, it looks like it would fit, but I also got a vq35 and I think it would be better on a early z.

A guy who has a z shop out here has one in his 280z. It is a super clean car with nitrous, but it is an automatic. supposed to be insane fast.
74' 260z Toyota 1jz swap, single turbo.
