heya,

Please excuse the simple question... but i havent been able to find any measurements between the two. Only exterior dimensions.

From pictures it looks like they are the same size.. but if anything it looks like the 280 may have a *slightly* narrower engine compartment because the fenders appear to be wider(i know the 280 is a few inches wider in total exterior width).. and take up more room.

I ask because im hoping that since the VG30DETT would fit in a 280 it will fit in a 240... id rather not buy the salvage title back for my old car if i cant take the engine/tranny/ecu out... :)

Thanks,

-mike

We've been putting V8s in everything from the 240 through the 280ZX. I've never mounted a VG30 in one (bought the whole car instead) but that should be no problem.
