    Hey guys,

    I while ago I managed to pick up a patrol with an L28 engine. I broke the patrol and kept the engine.

    What's needed to make this 280Z spec rather than the more 4x4 geared Patrol?

    Check sump orientation and/or dipstick position. May have to reverse deep part of sump, reconfigure oil pump pick up and redrill dipstick hole (or you maybe lucky with Patrol - certainly applies with many L28 saloon engines...).
    Z cam may be different, otherwise engines pretty similar.

    It appears that the sump and dipstick are in the same place. It's an N42 head rather than my 260Z engine which is an E88...
