Im planning an engine swap on a 1977 Datsun 280z. I want to throw a 5.6L v8 from a nissan titan the fabrication for that I can do. The problem I run into is the transmission. I wanna do a 350z 6speed manual transmission with a transmission adapter kit, but the tranny wont fit in the 280z without ALOT.... ALOT of fabrication. Sooo anyone know any other transmissions that might bolt up to the Titan engine that is a 6 speed manual that could fit in the 280z with less work?

There's a trans adapter for the vk56 to bolt up to a 5spd from a z32. Many ppl on here are running that tranny behind they're rbs.http://collinsadapte...pter-plate.html
