Interchangeable parts

Does anyone know if you can put performance parts for a 1990 300ZX into a 1989 300ZX or vice versa

Do you already have the parts? If not, depending on where you are buying it. It says which models the part fits

It depends on if the engines are different from each other those years. If they are the same then i think they should work but if they are different then i doubt it.

i highly doubt u can just swap parts between both that easily. they ARE different models (1990 was the year the last 300zx model was introduced, while the 1989 model was the rocket-like one). everything is very different on both of them. i know u can interchange the brake system, but it required some work........ mostly on the rear brake assembly (i think)...... dont remember too well.

i thought he was asking about parts for the engine alone? if so, then if both engine's are VG30 then yes.. you should be able to swap parts around and hope for the best, vice versa if they're VQ30.... otherwise, then i doubt that it'll work, i'm not to sure about the 300ZX's though, i've not done all that much research on them PLUS i don't know many 300ZX owner's, only 300ZX owner i know has an 86 Z31 and his is wack, so yeah, i've never really cared that much about it.
