Hey everyone, I've been working hard the past month trying to come up with a better solution to the cd009(Fs6r31a) trans into the mkiii chassis. I started off researching what everyone likes and doesn't like in a kit and I came up with this idea by literally staring at one for about a week.

I decided the best route for us, was to go trans adapter vs engine adapter. In doing so, you will be able to retain the oem bell housing, use Toyota flywheel and pressure plate, slave, throwout. That as no tunnel modifications are going to be needed. Best of all t will be able to work with 7M or JZ!
I'll be making a R series and W series too

I have some local guys that will be my test guinea pigs as well as myself. This also opens the door for any chassis, so SC, s-chassis, bmw, rx7, any chassis that is a tight fit for the trans and doesn't want to massage the tunnel for the 350z bell.

The kit I'll be straight forward with new pilot bushing, hardware, etc. I would like to get a feel of how many R vs W I'd have to make.

As for the shifter setup, I have a design that will bolt on the shifter exactly where it needs to be. In a week I'll have photos of the prototype.

Some photos to keep you happy, all of this is prototypes.

My 2 cents. R series are less available and demand a premium. Most of us can find 10 cheap W series bellhousings (and trans) at the scrap yard before one sub $200 R series bellhousing elsewhere.

I'd focus mostly on the W series. Those that still have the complete R series trans/ bellhousing will sell it complete to do this swap with a w bellhousing.

BTW,
This also opens the door for 5 speed IS 300, 5 speed tacomas, early RWD celicas............

He's making for both the R and W series. But honestly, R series bellhousings aren't hard to come by at all.

Did I miss an estimated price? My reading comprehension could be failing me.

what are the advantages of running this cd009 tranny vs a built R or W series?

advantages of cd009

-cheap(as in $400 used to brand new for $1700)
-SP has made some fast passes on there 350z with upwards of +1000hp with no modification
-its a 6speed

disavantages for using it
-as of right now the 350z trans doesnt have a speedo sensor on it, the 350z uses the diff for speedo
-shifter location
-some of the earlier cd00x varients had weak syncros but this is was revised and fixed on the cd009

Very excited to see this done. as it is a very smooth transmission to drive. much like a w58 if not better.

knowing alberts work i assume he will cover the shifter location,and crossmember fitment concerns too
looks alot better than doing the colon adapter too.

my question is will it work with twin disk setups since its using a r154 clutch cover and flywheel i assume the discs can be changed to match the nissan spline but how about the throwout bearing?

This is awesome.

Will the centre spline of the clutch need to be changed? I ask this as i would like to keep my ORC triple plate but wondering if ill need to make up a a new centre section that holds the friction plates.

Interested.

Curious what your shifter and clutch disc solutions are.

Here's the shifter setup I am working on. Kit will be an adapter plate and a new shifter selector that will replace the oem one. Then buy off the shelf shifter housing and shifter. It's a 6speed shifter and still retains reverse lockout (down to the left)

Not sure. Trying real hard to get my interior and my paint job this year before silv. Have a Mkiv customer that wants me to pull, rebuild, and tune his engine. The small spare time I have is going towards this. I should have a working mockup by april

Wow, very neat. Checks all the right boxes.

-6 speed
-Power tolerant
-Cheap to buy

If I stick with the Mk3 platform I'd be very interested in this for my car. I'm not a fan of the R154 so I've been using my rebuilt W58. I'm about at it's limits though so it's keeping me from pursuing more power.

Probably will be in for a kit here too. I know the single plate clutches will bolt right up with a disc swap, but what about a twin or triple disc for the more power hungry builds?

I've got a friend here locally who has this tranny mated up to his 1jz in a MKIII. He seems to like it a lot.

I´m interested in a W58 plate too. :)
Because the R154 bellhousings are about 400$ new here in europe. :/
And you won´t finde them used without the R154 transmission...

I'm pretty sure he had to change the tunnel a bit and I know his shifter is further back than our stock setup. It's about four or five inches further back.

I will ask him just to verify tomorrow though.

I would think these could work on an mk4 with just a custom ds and longer shifter...

interesting, but what about diff and gear ratios? how will it work on the mk3 chassis?

Also plans for speedo? Not having a speedo is a bitch... Even though there are GPS speedos and what not avail for apps on iphone/android

there are gps units, hall effect units like what standalones use with driveshaft mounted ones and possibly using front abs sensor is possible with some figuring.

what kind of 6 speed shifter housing and shifter is that? I was also working on this on clublexus and was thinking of using an xterra 6 speed base right there as its 6 speed shifter with reverse lockout and also has the 3 bolt design like the 350z. shifters are different though but that part can be solved.

Thinking this is dead, which is unfortunate. Albert has been MIA for a while now.......................sometimes life comes up


Hopefully he will at least chime back in with what he has learned so some of us might be able to run with this on our own. If he figured out the shifter issue, building or having an adapter plate build wouldn't be difficult.

not dead. just busy. last i heard, his car was being prepped for paint. he'll be going to siv and i beleive he has redone the fuel system so i can only imagine that he would go threw all this work to showcase the setup for an advertisment at SIV. brandon is currently getting ready to fit it to the 7m so its just been a waiting game on updates.

Is his car red suprahero?
Yes, his car is red. His name is Jason. He's not a member on here, but he's a local guy that has helped me a lot in the past few months with my ms3pro and other things. He's a great guy and very very smart.........unlike yours truly.
