This is the same conversion as someone else did here in a 4x4 truck with the VG30DETT. Nice swap but not a drop in by any means, wiring this would give me a headache. I would love to see someone that has twin turbo'd a VG30i/E but don't think its been done. I just want to know the results good or bad.

If I were to use the "VG" block I would probably do the 3.3, it came with a few upgrades. The exhaust manifold bolts are better so they don't break off quite as fast but still hear its an issue. I think the 3.3 has a supercharger kit or two available for it at well but its not cheap. I would almost think this kit would fit a VG30 as well but not sure how much of the block really changed (I doubt much).

I think David29 knows the differences between the blocks since he was thinking about that option but don't shoot me if I am wrong.

I'll be looking forward to Z24i info. I'm attempting to put a 1988 D21 back to pretty much stock condition, just as a project I want to do... (hey, us retirement age dudes gotta do something!). I want to use it as a daily driver/ working truck. (For Lead-Footing, I have a modern Dodge with a big 8... a tip o' the hat to the muscle car days of the 60's)... But, I want the D21 to run and look nice. If I can jack up torque some, without going to far off budget... I look forward to it. Thank you!

I found this a while ago for the vg30e and don't really know where to post it. Nice cheap upgrade (only personally when I do this i'll be building a little sheet metal box to isolate the filter from engine air)

Ive read that. Pretty good idea. I have a similar idea for the VG30i. Still need to get around to it or more importantly, order a dang expensive high filtration filter.

I have also been looking at superchargers on TBI. Seems simple enough for low boost. Needs more research.

For the VG30i the single best upgrade is headers. I absolutly love mine.

As for VG33 stuff, why not a VG34 build if you are already going to swap in a VG33. Its a VG33 bottom bored to a 3.4L with VG30 top end. According to the the project pathfinder build it was a beast.

I have. In a 92 SE-V6. Running and driving. Best advice I can give is to start with a Xterra or Frontier VG33e
