    my 1987 pathfinder has a VG30DE in it (Atleast i think so)....is it basically the same motor ast the VG30DETT that was in the 300zx?

    compression is different. internals are different. don't count on it taking boost as well as its counterpart.

    87? E, not DE. it's kinda the same (but not really) that was in the 80s 300zx. not the 90s.

    I dont think Nissan offered a VG30DE motor in 80s. You might be mistaking it with VG30E.
    VG30(D)E

    yeah it's gutless and worthless cuz it's old..... it's amazing what a tune up and some PM can do. i have a VG33e and it's pretty good. but then again, it's an 01 and i have no problems towing my Z, or 240 or my buddy MR2. it's not big v8, but it does the job i ask it to do.

    it's a VG30E..

    the VG30DE has DOHC and the VG30E has SOHC...

    among other things...
