VG30DETT into 1989 240SX

V8 240sx? Sure! If either the chassis OR the engine is non-Nissan (i.e. SR20 in an RX-7 or LS1 in a 240sx), we've done it.

No. Even if it was done, I wouldn't trust it. I've seen people mate the RB20DET gearbox to the RB26DETT and the gearbox didn't last a week. The SR/RB/CA/KA gearboxes are related.

I shaped the sump round the rack to the rear so the front Arb was never a problem, the steering was a problem though as it will not clear the turbo down pipe as is and needed a custom column and alterations to the rack and its certainly no easier in a uk car trust me. I looked at what every one else had done with vg swaps before I started.

I removed the air con when I did an sr swap into the same car a while back, so there was no point in trying to put it back, I used the power steering pump from the sr20 and transfered it to where the air con pump was on the vg, made everything relating to steering pipes a straight bolt up job.

Keep up the good work

I talked to him on the phone about a week ago... My car is supposed to be in paint this week and he said it should be shipping back to me by the end of the month or the beginning of next. Also he just opened another shop over there that he's setting up. So yeah, he's pretty busy right now. He told me when he got some free time he'd post some more pictures...

Yeah, I'll be here probably until May when I go from the Navy to the Army, but believe that when I get it back, I'll be looking for every local meet I can find.

Spoke to Dale again today, and apparently he's dealing with a bad case of identity theft, but he told to let everyone know that he's still alive and kicking.

The ca/sr box is the same as the rb20, but the rb25 box is the same as the vg30dett box with a different shifter assy

If your asking me the answer would be along time lol, I did it in a very peace meal fashion sometimes it stood for months and never got looked at, I also did a huge amount of other work at the time, 5 stud, brakes suspension lsd etc etc, I think I could do another one in 3 weeks just for the vg swap

The only parts you need is a spare zed and a welder

Not really. Waiting for Dale to send me some pictures to post. He says everything is done except for some bodywork plans we spoke about (it's a surprise). I'm trying to get stationed back over there, so it's not looking like there's going to be a need to have him ship it back stateside for me. That's pretty much it.

I understand... I guess I should pay for it myself. I'll send your half of the money back. All swaps are worthless. The cars get us back and forth without changing the motors, don't they? And the ones that are done well are never cheap. We should just leave our cars the way they come from the factory because that's how they're supposed to be, right? This is my first and probably only time saying this, but STFU noob! Is that what passes for useful input in Denver? You haven't posted one thing worth a damn yet. Don't worry, we'll wait...
