Clutch disc: nissan sr20 / 300zx / 350z etc.. all them will fit the input spline

Pressure plate: mr2 turbo

Throw out bearing needs a spacer (seems to release the clutch but i haven't driven the car yet)

You need an adapter to fit the pilot bushing (very simple)

custom transmission cross member (trans mount from a 300zx or 240sx is the easiest)

Drive shaft: you will need a slip yoke from either a 350z or a nissan titan and have a shop either weld it to your oem drive shaft or make a new 1 pc

Shifter assembly sits far back so you will need to cut it and re weld it about 4 inches ( or buy the custom bracket which $200)
Are all these parts the same if adapting a 1JZ/2JZ instead of a 1UZ? What needs to be done to the 4runner flywheel? What are these spacers and adapters for the T.O. bearing and pilot bushing?

Im really interested in this and want to make sure this is something feasible in a weekend before I commit 100%.

For anyone that is not familiar its the revised version which nissan released in 2006.

I would not use anything from 2005 and earlier just as a precaution.

Gearing is very short with the stock early sc400 differential. I might swap it with a late model sc400/gs400

I'm crusing 50mph at 2k rpms in 6th gear. But it does accelerate very quick.

Very solid trans so far.
Wow, scary!

I had the same problem with my w58 + 3.93 combo, had to move to a 3.26. I think a few other guys moved to the 3.26 also. I don't think the 3.73 would make that much of a difference.

Correct me if I am wrong tho, wouldnt the R154 still be the most cost effective tranny to go with, because it sounds like the 350Z 6speed is still going to be pretty pricey by the time you purchase all the parts to do the swap and then sounds like I would still have to change out the rear on my 92 5-speed

It's not a cheap alternative to a R154, however, it may be a cheap alternative to a V160 (IMHO an upgrade to one as well).

Interested in this. Most people don't need the enormous torque-holding or expense of a V160.

Does anyone know what real world horsepower numbers the CD009 is capable of holding reliably?

I wouldn't say any less than the V160. Most have not tested it to its limits but there are several 900rwhp, 1250wrhp and even one guy pushing in the neighborhood of 1800hp (now on a powerglide). They're very solid trannys. There are very few if any power related failures. The only failure I have ever heard of was actually a guy that powershifted his to an early grave after a few years of drags over on the MY350Z forums.

Sound Performance broke the trans when launching their 350z with slicks. They made around 1200hp at the dyno. I doubt anybody here would swap this 6speed instead of an automatic to do real drag racing.

I am only running the stock 1uz but I can tell you this trans feels very solid also shifts as fast as you can at any rpm. I've never driven a 350z before so I was hoping for the best. I will try to get some images together and start a new thread with info that may be important.

With this tranny swap, will I have to change my rear end? I have a 92 SC3 factory 5-speed na-t. Motor is set-up to make 550ish whp but is limited by the weak w58 and fuel (I still need to upgrade my fuel system)
If I need to change my rear, what diff's can I use? Also, what needs to be done to the drive shaft, to make this work?
Thank You in advance

Not necessary to use the 350z diff but it would be nice to use because of better spaced gear choices.

What needs to be done to install the 350Z rear? I am assuming that it wont bolt just bolt up in the factory SC3 location, or does it?

I asked him If I could ride along to get a video, and he was cool with it, so hopefully that will come soon.

I personally would like to get a taller rear-end since I do alot of highway driving and want to keep the rpm's down as much as possible. so I would recommend the 98-2000 SC00 differential coupled with the 350Z transmission. that should be a great combination.!!
What is the 98-00 rear gear ratio?
