wasn't the 200ZX powered by the RB20DET, rather than the VG30DE? I'm pretty sure thats why it has a different model name...


Well it was called the 200Z, ZG, ZR, and ZR II in the home market (from 300zx page) You are correct that the 200zr models had 2 liter engines, the VG20et or the RB20det. I thought I also remembered one with a vg30de, but maybe I was thinking late 80s 200sx. Jgregg 19:01, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

I looked some more and found I was mostly right:

200Z, 200ZS, 200ZG- VG20ET (V6 single cam turbo 170ps(gross)) Japan Only
200ZR- RB20DET (in-line 6 twin cam turbo 180ps(net)) Japan Only
300ZX Turbo- VG30ET (V6 single cam turbo 195ps(net) 230ps(gross))
300ZX- VG30E- (V6 single cam non-turbo)
300ZR VG30DE (V6 twin cam no turbo 190ps(net)) Japan Only

All these are for the Z31 chassis if anyone was wondering Jgregg 20:26, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

The VG30DE obviously came in a third variant, namely two throttle bodies facing left with OEM cold air intake 210.7.18.177 (talk) 01:55, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Somebody might want to rewrite the VG30DET section. I somehow don't think that Nissan offered to chaneg the boost level and other things for you, even back then. And we are still talking about factory VG's, right? 210.7.21.2 (talk) 08:27, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

DOHC[edit]

A 'later revision' is a little vague for when they became DOHC?
