V6 Vg30t


Recommended Posts

I am looking at buying a Navara V6 and if the motor died I would fit a VG30t. Anybody done such a convertion? Any tips? What extras apart from motor are needed? Would I need turbo computer and AFM or just use an Apexi SAFC? Anybody know of some VG30t spares?

T or TT?The vg30dett wont fit in most cars.even cars that came with a vg30 because of the the location of the turbos.They will usually hit on the chassis rails,very wide motor and a biatch to work on.Then again the navara might be wide enough to accomidate the turbos...The single turbo version is much easier but older.

what you do is get the engine rebuilt and slightly modded, then with a turbo conversion with a decent sized turbo, do a LPG conversion and you should see 350rwhp no worries, with huge ammounts of torque...

my mate had this exact thing done to his z31 300zx (with the Navara engine)

you can find out heaps of info if you do a search, i can send u some links if u want..

At an American site (Nissan Performance Magazine - NPM) there was an article called project Pathfinder . On the later bottom end they go it out to 3.5L I think plus headwork and a cam for better torque .

To each their own but I'd be careful giving purple hearts to a heavy vehicle , particularly one that has the gear reduction in low range that can break things . Low down stump pulling torque is what cross country vehicles like and in my experience their wide ratio gearboxes work better set up like this .

Petrol turbo engines are probably not ideally suited to that app .

I look for the article and post its title .

Cheers A .

    • Your stuff look much better than the original stuff I used on my tri-y headers, which didn't survive the swap, that did work OK though, but currently the headers are only ceramic coating, which, while it is meant to be the bees knees, it really only reduces temps by "not alot" and is more for protecting the mild steel pipes The new stuff is meant to maintain an "air gap" which "apparently" helps the insulation LOL In other news I'm taking it into Autotech next week for them to have a look at the RaceTCS, the spot where I want it, and the program "thingie" that is on my lap top computa which you would know as it is basically the same thing as your Racelogic  I'm really keen to get this fitted  
    • OK, a couple of questions arise. Are you suggesting that you want to swap to the S2 ECU so that you can Nistune it? Because....none of the R33 ECUs can be Nistuned. What would an ATESSA controller do to help? You have no ATESSA. Beyond that, the S1 and S2 ECU pinouts are nearly identical, as far as I can remember. A quick look around on SAU yields the following for S1. As I said, almost all of it is identical. I think there might be a few changes around the AFM and the ECCS relay, not much else. There's not functionally anything particularly different between a manual and auto ECU pinout. Can run a manual engine on an auto ECU quite trivially, for example.
    • Hey guys Was recently replacing the water pump and timing belt. Came across one of the washers for the timing gear and balancer were bent. Just wondering how that would of happened
    • Recently destroyed the front driver ABS wheel speed sensor on my ENR34 due to the iron knuckle rusting and seizing the sensor head. The other one on the passenger side has been soaking in penetrant for a few days, but I fully expect the same thing to occur. The wheel speed sensors seem to be specific to the AWD applications, and likewise the more readily available units from ER34s and S/Z chassis are not the same. An OEM unit seems to be available at $200 USD/ea, which is not ideal, but still fine. But if I'm in this boat in the future, those might not be available.   Does anyone know of any wheel speed sensor that uses the same head as the R34 GTR that could be used? Not overly concerned with cable lengths as wiring will be redone to accommodate PMU wiring.
    • Isn't this at least partially due to the way the dyno run was done? I'm used to seeing runs where they start as low as 1500 rpm to see how boost develops over the 2000-3000 rpm range. Seeing the torque curve fall on its face by 6000 RPM similar to this chart gives me some confidence that this run wasn't just entirely make-believe:
