Alternative Models

Postby Kevin Michael Clarke » Sun Jun 06, 2021 11:09 am

Hi

I am hoping someone will be able to tell me which models of vehicle and date range use the VX30DE engine as I am hoping to have a browse around the scrapyard and it would be useful to know what to look for.

Many thanks in advance

You mean VG? Pretty much just the Z's here in the 'States, the VG30E was used more widely. This is from Wikipedia for the DE:

1986–1989 Nissan 300ZX Z31 (300ZR only)
1990–1997 Nissan 300ZX Z32
1989–2000 Nissan Fairlady Z Z32
1986–1992 Nissan Leopard F31
1992–1998 Infiniti J30/Nissan Leopard J Ferie
1992–1995 Nissan Gloria and Cedric
1989–1991 Nissan Cima

Hi VStar650CL

Thanks for the reply. I think after checking, it is VQ30.

Regards

Also, I am in the UK so any UK models would be helpful too.

Many thanks
