Is the VG30DE a good engine?
vg30de motors are very durable… the weak point in both NA and TT is the pistons… NA boosted (around 400rwhp properly tuned) TT moded around 650rwhp… put some forged pistons in there and 800+rwhp is definitely doable! the engine wiring harness is an issue with corrosion, but only after about 10years of age.
How much power can a VG30DE handle?
The stock 300zx na made 222hp at the crank from the factory back in the 90’s, and over 20+ years its probably lost some of that power. A safe estimate of power nowadays is about 170-180whp, assuming the engine is still in decent shape.
Can you supercharge a VG30DE?
So anyone who has looked into the TT swap knows it will cost just about $4000 in parts alone. Whether you ante up for the front clip or dive into a JDM engine/tranny package, it’s just costly. My remedy to achieve more power is to feed the V6 with a supercharger from a Subaru Pleo.
Can you turbo a vg30?
No. It won’t require a different fuel map. Using the NA motor, you will need the turbo injectors and ECU, but you can retain the stock fuel map all the way up to 12.5psi.

Can you turbo a non turbo 300ZX?
No, not all 300ZX are twin turbo. There are things that can be done to increase power on a NA VG30DE engine as well (including turbocharging if so desired) but from a “classic perspective” we think that a stock, non-turbo 300ZX is still an exciting and interesting car.
