Technically speaking, the Nissan 300ZX was sold in the US from 1984 to 1996, although it was sold worldwide from 1983 to 2000. So many versions were made [numerical designations too] that it gets confusing sorting out the models, engine applications and chassis setups. Not surprisingly, if you want to replace your engine, we have new crate engines to fill all requests for Nissan 300 engines for sale.
The 300Zx was made available with so many performance options including a variety of high performance engines, combined with the sporty suspension made this car an icon of sorts to many people. One thing I have come to realize about Nissan 300 ZX owners is that when they need replacement engines or other parts, most choose new parts and new crate engines as opposed to any other option.
Here is an excerpt from Wiki showing the success of the Nissan 300ZX and the numerous awards it tallied.

From 1983 to 1989 the 300ZX, also called [the Z31] used; 2.0 L VG20ET V6 (200Z, 200ZG, 200ZS); 2.0 L RB20DET I6 (200ZR); 3.0 L VG30E V6 (300ZX); 3.0 L VG30ET V6(300ZX Turbo); 3.0 L VG30DE V6 (300ZR)
From 1990 to 1996 these were the only two engines available; 3.0 L VG30DE V6 and the 3.0 L VG30DETT V6.
Because the 300 has been out of production for some time now, we get requests for remanufactured crate engines primarily. The owners of this specialized sports car are set on buying the best replacement engine possible, and what is better than new? Call now.
