If I get an FS5R30A tranny from a Pathfinder instead of  a 300ZX, will I have to change the gear ratio? 

I know they are different on the Z32's, but unknown on the Pathfinder.

The only reason I care is this guy at a salvage yard is charging more for the one from the 300ZX.  I assume because it's a sports car or more sought after.  I'll take the cheaper Pathfinder one if it's workable that way.

Apparently the ratios are different depending on 4 wheel drive or 2 wheel drive.  So it would help to know that, to start.  If the transmissions are out and he'll let you examine them, you could do some measuring/counting.  Always good to spin things anyway to see what shape they're in.

Somewhere there is a transmission dimensions thread which details that the pathfinder transmission has the shifter a bit closer to the bellhousing than would likely work in a z31.
