hey..no worries if people are getting impatient. I'm getting that way too... but as we all know, developing
and selling good quality products take a lot of time.

As I said before, the KA kits will likely become a reality, but AFTER the SR kit is released.

yea I WISH I was making mint. Like I said before..i'm like Don King..the promoter so probably not make ANY money off of it. I'd be happy with a kit at a discounted price( free).ha.

will keep everbody posted.

So is this Z32 tranny a T5 type?
Or is the SR tranny a T5 type?



Neither. The Z32 trans is an FS5R30A, the SR/KA trans is an FS5W71C.

Asad


Those are Nissan's codes for the tranny, but what are they based off of? The 84-86 manual turbos used a transmission based off of the Borg-Warner T-5 5 speed called the "FS5R90A". So do we know if the FS5R30A or the FS5W71C is T5 based?

Thanks!

In the workshop manual they list something along the lines of Synchro type: Warner.

Which makes me thing that its a derivative of the T5 or the T5 internals.

The longer it goes makes me think that it might just go away and be forgotten. I ope it doesn't turn into one of those victims of your own success things where there is so much demand he can't make them all.

TRUST ME!!!! IT'S NOT GOING AWAY!!

but there is nothing else to add at this point until production gets done. In addition, you're probably right
i don't know if we will get every order taken care of this first run around. As you can imagine it takes a lot of money for the production costs. If they aren't quite as popular as we think they are going to be, then they would sit on the shelf...NOT good for business. But rest assured they are being worked on and in fact I will call Mazworx to give you guys an update. Remember....i'm patiently awaiting my kit as well.!

I talked to Mark from Mazworx yesterday and the production is going well. They had been working on the brackets this week and are waiting on some parts that were outsourced. We will have an order sheet in about 1 week and will be ready to take orders.

Hadn't read this in a while, but has a price been set yet? Can't wait to get this, just trashed my 2nd tranny, i got lucky and found a '90 300zx tranny for 100bux hell yeah!!!

S14Redtop
11-01-2005, 09:15 PM
daaamn..nice price on the tranny. I suspect the price will
go up when the junk yards start realizing the trannies are going to be in higher demand. The price isn't completely set yet, until all the parts are made and production costs are figured out. They will likely be somewhat more expensive than orginally projected, since there will be a one piece drive shaft, a shifter, and a couple of other new fabricated pieces to make the kit better.

updates soon

sorry if this was posted already but i was just curious about this and did a search for the pn# of the trans and found this

http://www.z31.com/transmission.shtml

excerpt

"The king daddy of the Z31 manual transmissions is the FS5R30A. This transmission is the same design as the transmission used in the Z32 300ZX models. Only the gear ratios are different. There are Z32s running these transmissions with well over 600 horsepower and are not blowing them up."

forgive me for losing track of this post and getting confused on how this process works for the upgraded trans. from what i understand, we have to ship the 300zx bellhousing to XXXXXX so that they can weld the sr adapter plate to the tranny? then they send it back to you? just wondering because i live very far away, so im hoping that i understand wrong, lol.

thank you very much

S14Redtop
11-07-2005, 10:31 PM
Ok...so here's the deal. The final details are being worked out in terms of pricing and how orders will be taken and delivered. The best option we have come up with is that the customer finds their own tranny and just ships the bellhousing to Mazworkx. The idea has been thrown around that ENTIRE (including tranny) kits would be available..but there is too much liability in getting trannies that might not be in the best condition. So for ALL those interested...i would suggest sourcing your tranny if you have not already.

I will be contacting the first 10 people that I heard from for a special offer and we'll go from there for the rest of the orders.

Lets take a vote...should we close this thread and start a new one when it's done? It makes no difference to me.

The parts are in final stages of completion..with the brackets getting powder coated as we speak.

What about the poor bastards in Canada? I'm very interested as I was feeling I was going to have to resort to a G-Force tranny or equivalant. So this Z32 tranny upgrade is great in my eyes. Anyways, is everyone who is so far away suppose to ship a couple hundred pound tranny to you, then you include the kit then have it shipped back? It's like $1000 by the time it's done. I'm not complaining by any stretch and money isn't an issue as far as I'm concerned. I'm just curious. Or can you ship the kits out alone? Maybe a machine shop up here will clear up anything that needs to be done?

Like it's been mentioned earlier on this post..the only thing needed to ship is the bellhousing which will be machined and sent back along with all of the rest of the the gear.

I don't think it would be a problem sending them to canada.


Oh and there will be more than just 10 in the first batch. There will be about 20...but the first 10 then replied will get a discounted price.

dead last - right behind nero http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif j/k

from what i know there are a couple of parts that are still waiting to be finished - would like to have the majority of the kit ready to ship before pre-orders are taken but ideally we can start the process in the next 1-2 business days - Mark from MazWorx has already completed the form for purchase that will need to accompany any bellhousing being shipped for the machining

and for the international customers - you will be accomodated to the best of our ability - we have access to several different shipping methods and will work with you on a case by case basis to get your needs taken care of

we don't want anyone to not have an opportunity to run this great product that is why the majority of the retail sales will come directly from MazWorx to ensure quality control and prompt ship times although we are looking into opportunities for dealers to sell this product as well as other MazWorx products that are in the R&D process.

I haven't found any direct info from nissan about which
ones have the dual synchros, but from research on the
Z websites, the 93 and up TT trannies have the dual synchros. Honestly though..i'm going to take my chances with a NA

OK...couple of updates. The order form will be ready to go within the next 24-48 hours. The details of what needs to be sent to where will be outlined very clearly...as will what comes in the kit.

The official price will be 925$ plus shipping...which now includes the 1 piece driveshaft and shifter...along with all miscelaneous hardware/brackets/machine work.

Lastly...the discount pricing structure will be expanded to include more people, to make it fair to those that have followed this thread from the beginning. These details will also be outlined soon.

thanks again for all the support from the SR community. It's truly a great thing to see this thing progress from a mere dream/idea 3 months ago..to coming so close to reality!

will look forward to hearing from you soon

For anyone who has researched Tranny solutions this is obviously a great deal. Especially considering how much power the z32 trans can hold in stock form. others have been adapted but cost way more than this setup and usually don't maintain the similar gearing like the z32 tranny does.

Agreed Jay...that was my entire reason for pushing to get this kit done. There really is NOTHING out there at a reasonable cost for tranny upgrades. And with the new project i'm working on (hehehe) I'll need it.

My order has been faxed and bell housing has been sent yesterday. Does anyone know where I can get that shifter rod that goes to the shift lever? Mine got cut in half when they removed it from a car via blow torch (bastards). It's the shaft that controls gear shifts. I could reweld the missing portion, but I do not know the position alignment, length, position and size of holes, etc.

S14Redtop
11-23-2005, 09:33 AM
couple of options I guess.
1) You can go back to the place where they got the tranny and have it replaced.
2) If you had the tranny shipped to you, you might be able to have the junk yard source the part and send it.
3) Find another tranny and take it off there.
4) Or go to the dealer and order the part.

Probably already covered but with so many replies it's difficult to find answers without reading this entire thread.

Any increase in NVH over a stock SR tranny using this kit? Does the change in the shifter position still allow the use of the stock trim pieces?

Hi Guys,

First up sorry for bumping up a old thread, Im located in Australia and have ordered a kit from mazworx, cant wait to get it here and take it to the track.

The reason im writing this is to ask the people that have got them now a few questions about it, in a s13 does the shifter hit the radio surround at the bottom corner? When you install the adapter to the block should you remove the sandwhich plate that normally goes between block and trany?

Thanks for the info

I wanted to get some feed back from people that have the kit, plus I think James is sick of me annoying him :P

S14_James
05-15-2007, 01:15 PM
I kept mine, but the bolts did not have enough thread engagement, I feed that back to Mazworks and told them you could add a few mm to the bolts and not have any problems. Also before you install it you can line another hole in the trans housing to a place on your oil pan. You can drill and tap it there and add another bolt location for a total of 6.
The other problem is that the bracket for the shifter could use some more bracing because the shifter ends up feeling alittle loose due to flexing in the shifter assembly.
In my S14 I could no put my shifter bezel back on due to the shifter sitting farther back in the trans tunnel. It ends up back and towards the drivers die.

s14 James thanks very much for your comments that was exactly what I was asking for, the sandwhich plate between gearbox and block, remove it or keep it? If you remove it im guessing you would get the gearbox another say 2-3mm closer to the engine?

Lots of great info in this thread. Found out everything I needed to know.

The only question I have is how are the out put shafts in the z32 tranny's holding up? I keep snapping the output shaft in KA and SR trannys. I run 26x8.5x15 slicks at the track. I'm just worried about spending $1500 and being back where I was.

Oh brought back from the dead! j/k The output shaft is a 30 spline compared to a 24 spline. We were hitting 1.32 60's without breaking it. So I think you will not have a problem. The next weak spot you will find is the axles.

When you have severe wheel hop, you are prone to break anything in the drivetrain. Our car and the PRL car has never broken one of those in 2 yrs. Point is, don't launch an 850hp car on drag radials.
