VG30DETT vs RB26DETT what do you think you know?

Postby z32bolt » Sat Jun 08, 2013 5:21 pm

Its fairly well known that the skylines RB engine is amazing and the VG housed in the 300zx is poor. Right? well actually no, the VG30 is every bit as tuneable and solid, not only this the Vg actually has the ability the produce MORE power at lower revs under the same spec. Don't believe me???
Well Pentroof did some testing, heres an interesting link....

I've always thought the vg30 was a good lump! What always put me off was ease of getting parts and difficulty to work on the engine

Yeah the availability here in the uk is crap, in the us parts galore, you can even buy built engines off the shelf, from bone stock to 1200hp. Sadly space is an issue with the vg30dett in the z32, they didn't really care about how tight it was they just wanted it in the best place for the design of the car, hence the reason they didn't go with an inline 6 like previous fairladies, they wanted a compact low slung engine, once you get that monster inlet manifold off theres miles more room.

Can't see those links unless I sign up to that forum!

A while ago I considered a vg as a swapp into my 13! Would Deffo be different!

Damn I did wonder if that would be the case, one is an s14 with a vg30dett in it and the other a z32 with a SR20 in it, he went from a non turbo and already had the sr20 sat there, still doesn't make much sense I know but hell he did it.
