You can do a search, but if I remember right somewhere in 04 they made the switch. There is a sticker on it with numbers but the one I have the ink on the sticker got rubbed off I think cd009. So 05 and up you are good

Found this from a post on the 510realm forum this morning on the topic of Z33 trans adapters. Maybe this is a workable solution from another vendor.


I don't claim to be familiar with the KA trans bolt pattern but the discussion in the thread from knowledgable 510 folks suggests L fitment would work. Worth a look at least.

Thanks Malibud, Your right CD009 is the one I want. Now if we could figure out witch clutch, flywheel and starter we can start shopping! LOL I'm really excited about this adapter

I've sold two Collin's kits.  They have an issue with shipping stuff....


Anyway, the adapter works nice, the original adapter required shaving, and the new one doesn't.  The problem with shaving, is not everyone can do it, but if you don't have shave it, it ends up being wayyyyy too long.


So after you trim the shifter down, it still doesn't sit perfect. 


It's a good solution though, but has it's issues.  But then again, we're trying to get a transmission to fit on a motor, AND chassis it's not designed for.

Contact me for cheap prices on speedhut gauges, many, many, other things


If we've done business and you were satisfied, a simple "Like" on our facebook page would be all the "thanks" I'd need!

Guys, what about an 07 VQ35HR? I just picked one up for $150 with 30k miles and could not pass it up.

Finger crossed on the finished product Austin.

Hi Guys,


First off I apologize for posting this project and just being a tease so far...I would have never posted  if I thought it would take me so long to finish these up.  I appreciate everyone's interest,  I get a good many inquiries on this adapter.  Unfortunately there hasn't been any progress since the last time I posted it's actually sitting beside me now collecting dust. I have been busy with some other projects and my Z parts have been on the back burner. 


I can't commit to a date to finish them either, except that I still plan to but it will be sometime next year. I will be sure to post on here and my Facebook page when I do restart work on them. I try to get on here from time to time, but the fastest way to get in contact is through email, hokeperformance@gmail.com.

Hi everyone,

Im new to this. I have a question hope someone can help me out. If i have this adapter, what else do i need to have it works? Can i still use my 280z flywheel, clutch and pressure plate? If not, will the 350z clutch bolt right in to my 280z flywheel? Or is it something that i need to modify? Thanks

:shock:The beginner of Z.

It's a prototype part that doesn't exist yet. There's no way to know.

Hey Guys, 


I realize it has been a long time since I originally posted my adapter progress here, I worked on it for a couple months and then put it in the corner as I was working on other projects and only do this on the side...that was like over 2 years ago  :(.  


LS kit are now in production and the CD trans has my full attention.  I am on track to have the complete prototype together in April, I'll be 3D printing the last parts for functional fitment this weekend.  After that I could potentially get a few plates in folks hands for beta testing.  I have a local gentlemen who will be the first tester and allow me to design the transmission crossmember and other bits and pieces to make it a true bolt on, which will take a little time past the April proto.


So to be more specific:

March - Finalize design, 3D printed parts to compliment machined plate. Physical mockup and bench test

April - Machining prototype parts.  Prototype Mockup and bench test.  Pricing Release. 

End of April/May- Potential for first Beta testers plate only

End of May/June - Full Kit availability with transmission mount etc


Again here is a link to my site with pictures of the plate:



And I will be regularly updating this thread now but most up to date will be facebook:



Just wanted to let you guys know this will be an option and I'm still alive  :)
