The Nissan engines with the tag VG are a series of engines by Nissan Motor Company which started production in 1983. It is a V6 engine. The early VG engines had 12 valves per head and was an SOHC [single overhead camshaft] motor. The later 24 valve per head engines had DOHC, [double overhead camshafts]. The VG 30E Nissan engine for sale featured in this post is 3.0 Liters [3000 cc] in size.
There has been a total of 12 VG engine variants produced over 18 years. The design was so solid and successful it became the flagship V6 design used by Nissan. By changing the displacement and adding different performance options ranging from a plain Jane automobiles to the Nissan and Infinity ultra high performance sports cars and luxury sedans, coverage was excellent.
