Do you know what build dates have the 009 revision?? Is it all models from mid 04 and all 2005. Would I be safe just buying a 2005 model??Rare_f8 wrote:The gears of the 350z are equivalent, if not stronger than the getrag gears. The aluminum selector forks contact patches are equipped with brass inserts which reduces fork wear, a often exclusive feature. The weak point is the syncros, revision/series 009 is the best, 2003 to mid 2004 are the worst.
So with this, your $ is best spent else where.
Yeah I tore all the teeth of 2nd in the original SR tranny last summer. Replaced it with a 96 KA tranny which has been very nice. Same gearing except 5th is a little taller which helped the car on the highway with the 4.36 diff.evildky wrote:the Z transmission is stronger than the S13 trans, at 430 whp you were living on borrowed time on that s13 trans, unless you lacked the traction to brake it
You must be getting a great deal on parts and doing the work yourself because that seems cheap to me. I know people who have spent close to $10k on the bottom end build alone. Throw another $5k to $6k in for the turbo kit..maybe $10k depending on what you go with.kentuckyslider wrote: I am already going to have over $10K in the bottom end, turbo setup, tune, and fueling.
the TT trans shoudl hold fine, wiht the extra deck height of the LD you'll need to "clearance" the hood, I've only heard on one person doing a turbo gas LD and I'm not sure if ti ever got installed but the build and fab was donePanzerAce wrote:I was going to post a new topic, but I'll just use this one, since people are already talking about it....
What is the upper limit on the amount of tq you can put through a Z33 trans? I've been getting stuff setup for a LD28(T) (turbo diesel straight six) swap into my S30, but I can't find a transmission that will be able to both hold the tq and be less than about two grand.
I'm looking eventually at pushing ~500wtq, will a Z33 trans take this without problems, or is it another dead end?
I know a turbo trans will hold the power, but the issue is that I can actually get a Z33 trans for about half as much, it gives me an extra gear, and I'll still have to do fab work on it.evildky wrote:the TT trans shoudl hold fine, wiht the extra deck height of the LD you'll need to "clearance" the hood, I've only heard on one person doing a turbo gas LD and I'm not sure if ti ever got installed but the build and fab was done
The Cadillac CTS-V? It makes 556hp. Probably putting about 440-450 to the wheels.rmezz13 wrote:yeah its forsale. Figure instead of sinking more money into it, since i change cars a lot anyway, buy something with more power to play with for awhile until i can buy a GTR. CTS-V i think is whats inline next. Maybe intake and exhaust parts, play with an LS6 for a bit.... Nothing too serious. Pump it up from 400 to about 500 and then sell it probably in a year or two, most likely. Actually trying to figure out how many miles they are built for? The cadi ZO6, that is...
