Default 350Z trans adapter?

Has anyone seen the site where they say you can do a cheap 6 speed conversion to our cars with there 350z 6 speed transmission adaperter plate? I looked up the transmission and they go for as low as $400 but you have to get one over the year 2004 because they were pretty much a ticking time bomb. the adapter plate is 400 itself so for around the price of a R154 swap u could have a 6 speed. and a shop has there Z pushin 1200hp on the stock trans so it seems capable. Just wondering if anyone has done this swap before

What is it hooked up to? The JZ or the 1UZ?

Please point me in their direction.

The CD009 Z trans is such a dream to shift compared to the R154. I would even put up with the CD001 synchro issues if I had to. All those transmissions are nearly bulletproof.

Will the clutch & flywheel have to be from a Z also?

I want to guess that the flywheel and pressure plate would be from our cars and the clutch disks would be from the Z.
I'm not sure how the whole throwout bearing and input shaft issue would be handled since they are very different between both trans.

there was a guy from FL who recently made a post in a previously asked thread regarding the same...

unfortunately he mentioned that he also sells these kits and the thread was removed.

swap1uz.com I believe.

Also, I would assume you would have to mix and match. Using the Z pressure plate and disc with a flywheel that was going to be able to mate to the z pressure plate, but have the bolt pattern for 1uz/2jz

1uzswap.com has them. I read that the syncro issue is very very bad with early model 03-04 6 speeds but after those years nissan fixed the problem and the trans were basicly bulletproof. I want a 6 speed but for god sakes i dont wanna pay 4500 for a getrag alone then supra 6 speed rear end and driveshaft. this is a cheap alternative and i believe eventually i will be buying this kit. wether i Turbo by GE or swap for a 1JZ. they also make adapter plates for T56 transmissions but i think it was for the 1UZ only

I agree... i do not want to pay 4500 for a supra tt trans........ an adapter will be more feasible to do.... and possibly swap the diff for a mk3 one just like the is300 guys do...

Ok i will shine some light since I'm doing this to mine. 1uz to z33 trans

I'm using the flywheel from a toyota 4 runner 3vz (modded slightly)

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)

I'm not done but that's what i found out first hand so far. There is very little info out there and that's why its taking me so long to complete. I bought so many parts that were not necessary.
