Hi all. I have a 1993 Infiniti J30 with the VG30DE. Poor guy has 185k miles and is starting to knock. :(

I love my J enough to keep it, and am looking to do a swap in it. I was thinking of looking for a used VG30DE, sending it out to be rebuilt, or just simply buying a reman VG30DE for my J30.

So my main question:
Is the VG30DE in the 300Zs exactly the same as in the J30s?

Not that I am specifically looking for a Z VG30DE, but I'd like to know if I find one at a good deal, that I would be able to use it. As far as I know, both are exactly the same internally, but I don't know if the block is different externally in any way. I'm tempted to get a jspec front clip of the J30 with the Q45 engine, but I'm just not ready for that type of project at the moment. :)
