Drove it to work this morning. Verified speedo is accurate at 70mph. Looks like I'm good to go as far as speedo goes. And I suppose that makes my swap 100% complete at this point. Now to get it on the dyno and make some numbers.

Well the xterra/pathfinder tail housing swap is a no-go. Apperantly someone already tried it on a forum I'm on (Zilvia.net) and things didn't line up how you would think.. Not sure of the details yet but I'm asking to find out to relay it to everyone else. ( ._.)

thats not good news, well I guess I may have to throw a whole Xterra trans in there if I try it and see what happens with that first gear. the xterra trans has to be as strong as the 350 right they are basically the same thing I think.

when you get on the throttle how laggy is the speedo?

also with your short shifter how were you able to maintain reverse lockout? tried putting mine in and spring has zero function because the shifter is so far push down because of how long it is since the shifter rod was shortened so much

If I were to take a guess, I'd say maybe a half second delay. It's noticable if you're closely watching it and rapidly varying speed, but it's not bad at all. Under normal driving conditions, I don't even notice it. Again it's a gauge I don't even watch that often, I just like it there so I know how fast I'm cruising down the highway so I don't get pulled over.

Shifter, I don't have a short shifter, it's the stock shifter that I cut and welded a big angle on. The reverse lockout is part of that cap that holds the base of the shifter in place. I can take a picture tonight and post it and that might help. Pics worth a thousand words right

That speedo sounds good enough! I think I'll go this route instead of all new gauges

I know what you're talking about, my oem shifter works fine. I just had my short shifter modded so it sits in the proper place so I can use my shift boot but I ran into the problem I am having now. Guess its just going to have to be this way.

Cool, yeah I think it's a good solution for the Speedo. I'll take some pics of the shifter tonight if I have time.

And there we have it.

Great info, but obviouslly too bad it doesn't work. So wondering if there's still the idea of replacing that black cover with some sort of billet shifter mechanism.

turbomati your solution is the most reasonable so far. may have to look into going that route. I finally got my car running with an exhaust so I can hear something other than the engine. Also did the baptizing drive to work and made it. The 3.9 rear end with 6 spd makes for fast and furious like shifting, getting up to 40 mph and i'm in 6th, that is a lot of shifting lol. can't wait to get the 3.26 rear end on. although I still do about 2600rpm at 60 mph.

the GPS speedo came as well, that is going in next. finally can officially be in the club

cheers
Marko

PS I sent this to Collins but heard nothing back, here is my contribution that we can make better, a non-30 page forum thread for how this swap goes. I don't have the shifter modification stuff in there, I may modify and add stuff as I feel like it.

Was thinking about selling my 1uz to 350z kit. Basically everything you need to mate the uz to the 350z trans. Might even throw in a 350z trans for cheap.
