My question is simple. Will the engine of my 280zx '81 fit (withno problems) on to a 280z '77 (which is a 4 speed)? What other adjustment will I have to make in order for this to work.
Your input is greatly appreciated.
Best regards,

As per my experience, the engine from the 1970 240z all the way to the 83 zx was the same except for heads, bore, stroke, and a few accesories like the smog pump, and power steering, it should bolt right in, and the tranny should fit like a glove. pardon me if i am wrong..these guys will know more than me though.

I did the exact same swap except I put SU carbs from a 71 240 on the engine as it did not come with the fuel injection and I had already taken mine off. This is an easy swap and I had never pulled an engine before and I did this all by myself. The engine bolts straight up to your tranny and motor mounts with no problems.
