VG30DET conversion

Hi. Not sure if i have mentioned this before.
But i am wanting to do this transplant later this year. I have heard that there was a version of this which was a SOHC?! Is this right ? How would it drop into a 260z ?

I can pick up one of these engines for about 1400AUD...with turbo and EFi. could i do this project for about $4k if i did most of my own labour ?

Thanks
Ray

Ask Phil Prickett

There is a guy in the area named Phil Pricket which did a VG30dEt conversion in his Z which putslike 300 hp at the wheels with a dyno sheet to prove it, I don't know how much he spent but he spent a lot of time and this car is just sweet!

RE: VG30DET conversion

G'day,
I'm in the process of doing this conversion myself. There is a VG30et available from the early model 300zx's. Both the single cam and the quad cam fit pretty easily(as conversions go!) New engine mounts needed to be made, sump reshaped and starter rotated to clear rails. I'm opting for an aftermarket computer but $4k sounds about right, though depending on which gearbox you go with and exhaust system you may need a little more.
Any questions or photo's don't hesitate to contact me,
