sounds like you may have a broken piston ring and the thing to watch about sourcing a different engine is that the while the VG30 engine is used a couple of cars ( maxima , QX and the 300ZX ) then it was fitted with lower compression ratio pistons and cooling jets for the twin turbo application so really only another 300ZX engine will do

and there should be no issue with fitting a slightly earlier engine as long as you can move the sensors over between the 2 units
