Totally not the same. I'm not sure exactly when the switch between the VG30i (TBI) and the VG30e (MPFI) happened, but it's definitely somewhere between those two years.anyone know if a motor out of an 87 is the same as what's in this 92? They're both 3.0L V6's.
Well, good luck.http://forums.off-road.com/nissan-all/97773-help-vg30i-vs-vg30e.html
looks like it's the same from the intake down, or at least similar enough that ppl do what I'm thinking of doing. Thanks for the help.
I worked on those things for 6 years, Motors are interchangeable but have to change intake/exh/accesories. And off course the valve covers if you want it to look newer.I went and looked at said 87 motor and I looks identical to the 92 except that the older one is carved and the newer one is injected. Was hoping I could just swap the intake manifolds.
