  1. ok so now i am second guessing myself. i could have sworn the front frame of a v6 pathy (the actual frame), mounts were both the same lenghth from the front of the engine bay. were as in my 2wd i4 hardbody, the driver side is some 4"-6" further back. Ok so are the i4 frames the same as a v6 frame between both the hb and pathy? or is the v6 hardbody frame different than the i4 frame? i thought i had it all figured out but now im not so sure. im confused. i think ima just start it and say what the hell ever, it'll go in there one way or another. lol. thnx for the input thou.
  2. ok so they made a reg cab with a v6? never heard of it, but i believe you. ok so since they did i can go to a dealership and get a set of v6 motor mounts from a v6 reg cab hardbody and bolt them to the 300 block and it should set right in with out the turbo on right. and just making sure, the ex manifolds bolt directly on to the block when flipped?
  3. take a look at your forth pic, the factory 300 mount bolts up to the front of the block near the timing belt. If you look at that pic towards the middle of the block you have a bolt stickin out of the side of the block. Would it be possible to relocate the mount or any other mount to that location to have it bolt directly to the frame?
  4. also the v6 only came in pathys and excab hardbodys. mine is a single cab 2wd on the ka reg cab frame the driver side frame mount is set farther back than the passanger side. i haven't looked inside the bay of a v6 hardbody but on the pathy's with a v6 the frame mount and motor mount location is the same as the 300. So are you saying that the v6 hardbody frame and motor mount are set in the same spot as the ka, and all i have to do is get the mounts from one of them and bolt them to my motor and then to the frame?(with turbo out of way, of course). If that works then kewl but if that not the case, if you look at the driver side of the 300 block there are a set of holes towards the center of the block that is approx a quarter of an inch higher than the factory mount location, i was asking if with the turbo out of the way could i just move the 300 mount back to that set and bolt up?
  5. alright, the 200sx headers came off of what year and motor? also when you said adapter flange did you mean just for the turbo/crossover set up or will i need to make one for the header to block aswell? or will they bolt right up? also what gasket did you end up using?
  6. Put a new title for less confusion, sry. For starters for those of you who don't know what im doing; im swapping a Vg30et out of a 84 300zx into a 91 2wd hardbody. Ive gotten alot of info from you guys, yet im hear to pick away at your brain matter again. Ok ive seen some ways that people have mounted them in and if all else fails i will do the same but i just wanted to know if it would be possible to do it this way and if so what parts would i need to get. Ok first lets just picture that the motor is a n/a vg30e. With the turbo out of the way would it be possible to move the driver side motor mount that is connected the the front of the block to the second set of holes. i was thinking that the n/a and possibly the turbo vg30 might have been used in some cars (front wheel drive) therefore requiring the motor mounts to be in a different location opposed to the rear wheel drive vehicles having them placed far out front. It appears that they would accept the mount, but if it were possible to do this would there be any problems with the driver side being in the middle of the block when the passanger side stays out front? Ok next i believe it was a vg30 motor i was looking at but they were talking about a 200sx. Do the 200sx exhaust manifolds bolt right up on opposite sides of the vg30et block? What i was trying to accomplish by doing this is relocate the turbo from down bottom where (if motor mount mod works) the mount is to up top out of the way. So which manifolds would work to have the exhaust pointing forward on a vg30. i could have a flange welded in for the turbo or what not. and lastly would running the crossover pipe around front cause any problems? Id like to do as little firewall bashing and fabbing as possible but if i could swing it around front that would give me a bit extra room at the fire wall. Let me know what you think? YEA'S/NEA'S?

    sweet, nice to see all that work paid off. yeah ill let you know whats up with the rear in about a week or two. something important sorta came up out of nowhere but i won't forget about it. ill take some pics of it and post them too just too make sure its the right one.

    Thank you for the feedback. I think it might have been a bit easier if mine had come stock with a vg. But from what ive gathered it'll just be a lil bit more work, plus id rather have the pipe run over the tranny due to ground clearance issues. Oh and by the way i took a look at the rear end of the 300 and it does have the little vent fin things on it. ill guess ill post some pics when i get some of the work done. again thank you. and hit me up whenever about the rear. later

    yeah i saw the one guy that did the sa swap in the rear with the 4x4 axle. But from what i hear they only had discs on the 4x4 axle. was just wondering if there where any indicators as to lsd or not. i guess ill have to take some vins to the dealer and see if they came equipped or not. as far as my 300 rear end im assuming since i have no indicators to it being lsd or not ill try to find out that from the dealer aswell. Ok so if there is no cross over pipe on the v6 pathy/hb then where on the body do they reconnect? Ive never seen a stock duel exhaust on one. so the exhaust set up from a vg30e and a vg30et in a 300zx as far as the exhaust manifolds are concerned are different than the vg's that are in trucks? is this crossover pipe in both turbo and non turbo 300zx's? or just on the turbo models for more exhaust flow to the turbo?

    i also saw you are using a hardbody tranny from a v6 im assuming. Have you heard of anyone using the 300 tranny? if its the same like your saying this swap would be a cake walk in a stock v6 hardbody. Ok come to think of it why would we have to mod the firewall if the v6 vg is the same block as the 300? wouldn't the crossover be the same on both or not. never seen the back side of a v6 hb/pathy

    i have no use for the 300 rear end so that'd be fine. im still a bit confused on the pathy rear end thou. i understand that the lsd version is a tid bit longer which i can live with. but ive been told that the lsd sa with rear rotors was optional and not standard. What year pathy would that set up be in and how could i tell the difference. Are you converting to irs? that why you've been out for a lsd 300 rear?

    Yes i still have the rear end from the z. its still sittin under the car. And what was that about trannys? the z tranny is longer than the v6 hb tranny isn't it? i could be wrong but it looks to be about 6 inches or so longer. theres a place here in town that will make me a new one for 35bucks with my discount. didn't sound to bad. they just said i had to bring both driveshafts in so they could use the ends off of each. since you said something about diffs i was wondering if the rear axle from a 4x4 pathy was the same width as mine?

    nice set up, looks like you swapped plenums and relocated the turbo. Pathfinder plenum? I think the maxima plenums look almost identical to the 300 except the inlet is up front i believe. You got any other pics as far as the mounts go? And was yours originally equipped with the vg? Did you have any problems with the crossover pipe with your set up?

    ok, i'll hit you up soon. Im gonna start workin on setting the motor in and dealing with the firewall to begin with. Im with you on the bashing so i guess ill pull out the body saw hehe and do a lil firewall fab. Not sure on what im gonna do yet about the mounts but thank you very much for the input. i think ima go ahead and try the solid mount idea and see where that gets me.
