  • Vg30et vs vg33e swap

    Hey guys/gals so iíve long ago sold my z but now want another v6 to play with and thought about dropping one in my volvo 240... but my question is : is there any benefit to starting out with a vg30et vs pulling a vg33e from lets say a pathy? As far as i know internally they are basically the same some differences in external oil pump/filter and accesories stick out further (and obviously lacks turbo) but thats going to be all custom fabíd anyway... but either way any input would be appreciated

    More displacement, should be easier to get a lower mileage one and more availability, bigger exhaust studs, supposedly better intake...

        I think the heads are the same as the later VG30's. Cams are different, but can be reground. Timing belt is longer lasting in the newer VG33's. Check out the VG33 info page.
