It came with:

- Adapter plate
- Bellhousing machining
- Test fit to ensure everything fit without further modification (no chassis mods)
- Shifter w/ Reverse Lockout
- Gearbox crossmember adapter plates (suit s15 gearbox crossmember and factory mount)
- All required bolts/nuts/washers
- Braided clutch line to suit RHD s13 master to z33 slave
- Single piece tailshaft to suit abs housing

I haven't fit it to the car yet, but he uses the same setup in his ADGP s13 and his old man's daily s15. Looks the goods, comes out in factory location with no need to modify anything.

I believe he would be willing to sell components separately, I just couldn't say no to having it test fit before I coughed up dough.

Edit: I'm using the factory z33 throwout fork and pivot with a Nismo Super coppermix twin plate. I've been told that it will work - another customer has used it before I think.
That looks really good!

Is it cheaper than the Mazworx kit?

I believe the Mazworx kit is actually slightly cheaper than the InsaneDrifters kit. However the InsaneDrifters kit has a way better shifter relocation solution than Mazworx. The Mazworx relocation requires cutting the hole in the chassis although it does come with a metal plate to cover the new hole and clean it up. Also it BARELY clears the plastic shifter trim in S14 and S13.

I went with the Mazworx full kit myself, had to send the bellhousing back initially as they forgot to machine a relief for the 2nd gear selector rod, and they exchanged it for a revised one that should be arriving in the mail tomorrow.

This seems Sr specific but I wanted to add my experience about rb25 to z33 adapter. The Collins adapters for this application is really poorly made and while they're patient on the phone there is truly not that much support. Plan on a lot lot of Fabrication and lot of headaches. If there's interest or further information needed on this I would be glad to comment.

Hey sylus good to hear from you again. Yeah mazworx hasn't corrected the shifter problem yet but we've commented a lot about better shifter options on the first page.

It's odd that some plates don't have dowel pins. I would think that's pretty important as far as install and it being lined up correctly.

Following to see how this evolves. I'm interested in a better shifter placement, if possible, to avoid cutting up my chassis.

I have a G35 6MT in addition to the S14. Best fluids are either Nissan MTF or Redline MT85.

Redline MT90 was used on the older SR/KA trans and is a little too thick for the Z33 trans. Basically takes the same GL4 fluids we're used to dealing with on all Nissan manual transmissions.

Honestly, I didn't even look at pricing to begin with. I looked for the best kit and then it came down to cut and shut bellhousing, custom tailshaft, working out a Shifter solution, etc. I decided it was easier to just get it all through someone in Aus, and not have to deal with multiple companies. InsaneDrifters are about the only mob to do the whole bolt in kit locally.

That hole is part of the reason I went ID. With our modification laws, it will make life easier if I get sent over the pits.

In those pics he's running to mazworx adapter kit which requires you to cut the input shaft 3/8". His shifter sits center so therefore anyone who doesn't run that kit will have to assume the shifter will sit 3/8" farther back. Which it still looks like it would work just from eyeballing it.

The stock 350Z driveshaft is carbon fiber, I don't think it can be cut very easily. A G35 driveshaft is the same 2 piece design as the 240, so it may be possible to merge the two halves. Just a thought, haven't looked into it and most people go for a 1-piece anyway.

Great information here, giving me confidence about doing this to my s15 SR...but these transmissions dont seem to grow on trees like SR's and KA's. Is buying new the best/only option? Its not a cheap swap to begin with so it seems going all out with a new one makes most sense?

Sometimes it's just better to wait and find a used one. I got my cd008 with only 12k on it for $400 on Craigslist. Just keep an eye out and search everywhere.

There are a lot more floating around than you may think.
Try LKQ or even Ebay using the part numbers
32010-CD00A


or
32010-CD009.





Another option is to literally buy a junkyard car from copart.com for like cheap as balls and rob the transmission from that.


OR
get a new one for $1800 https://conceptzperformance.com/niss...z33_p_2887.php and not deal with any wonders.

Search Craiglist and such. Found a few low mileage (less than 60k) for CD009's going for $800 or less. Someone local to me beat me to the punch and picked one up for $450 with 25k miles....bastardo!
