I have a 6 spd trans for sale. It was replaced at work under warranty for some noise, but it still is usable. Maybe one of you could use it for swap for a Challenge car?
It has approx. 40k miles on it, and it is the kind with the internal slave cylinder. I can post some pics later, or just PM me if you're interested and I'll e-mail them to you.

Starting price is $250, but that is very much negotiable!

I heard that just changing to synthetic oil cures problem. It was a common problem when the cars came out, and a bunch got new trannys free.

Interesting...well it's done now and it's been sitting in my way at work for too long. I didn't diag it, just installed it, so now it's mine. Hope somebody takes it off my hands!

So I wonder what else that transmission could be used in?

In my limited searching I didn't see where it seemed to crossover to anything else except other Nissan/Datsun V36 chassis cars.

Too bad it isn't like the R154 used in the Toyotas, GMs, Chryslers, etc where you can swap the bellhousing to put a manual behind some interesting motors.

So it is my understanding that this will bolt to any VQ motor right? That means that you can grab any old Maxima motor and get a solid 230+ hp rwd lightish drivetrain for cheap. Nice!

In reply to singleslammer:

Not sure it's that simple with a FWD motor. Don't see Maxima motors turned into RWD very often, so I don't think it's as easy as it sounds. On the other hand, I will sell this thing to you cheap so you can find out!

last I read, JWT was making an adapter plate to bolt the vq 6 speed up the ka's and sr's
if they ever came out with it, this would be awesome behind an sr! especially for the money!
If I still had the datsun this would be very heavily considered..

Maxima vq's have the mounting points on the block further back than the z cars. So you have to fab mount points, and I believe iirc you have to flip the intake. Use correct flywheel and clutch and you're golden.

No serious takers? I'd love to sell this thing ASAP in order to fund a little getaway for my wife's birthday next month. If you're interested let me know soon, otherwise I'll just take it apart and scrap it!

I'm reviving this thread cuz I still have this thing in my storage shed. I would LOVE to get rid of it and have some more cash for my 280Z project. Someone make me an offer, ANY offer, and take this off my hands! If not I'll just take it to the scrap yard.

This is available again, let me know if you're interested! Local pickup is preferred, shipping is pretty costly, but I would take $75 for it!
