Hey all, I might be coming into aquisition of a Turbo engine from a 300ZX with everything intact, for free. :) It runs too. I've got a 280ZX N/A that I wanna make fast. Would this be a decent swap? I was thinking about it, and then thought "naah, teeny little engine, no torque like our L28s" but then I thought "well, i'll give it a chance" and decided to ask you guys.

well, wacha think? Engine's got only 90,000 miles on it.

Are you getting a trany too? Well this is the way I see it, by the time you have every thing that needs to be done to your car to put in the v6(especily if you need a tranny and are paying someone) you could probably have had a l28 turbo in for the same price. The l28et is made for a 280ZX so it will bolt right in and in my opinion its a better motor. Maybe you could trade that vg30e in for a good l28et, I dont think it would be worth the extra time and effort to put the v6 in.

Dont get me wrong I think a vg30et would be awsome in a 280ZX. search for ZR8ED he recently done this swap in a 78 280Z.
