I have a new Nissan 6 speed listed here. Was going to use it with the 2jz, but went a different route.

Seems like they make them in limited production runs. They just made an announcement a week ago about a new run coming.

Maybe I could trade them an M14....or a kidney.

Therein lies the problem. If I had the time and wanted to spend the money I would sell mine and go to 5 speed of some sort but I never got that far. First and foremost need to decide what you are going to do with it. If just have fun but not compete then it's a great option but then when you want to get to the pointy end then it's not the droid you are looking for. FYI I just had mine rebuilt and was $2400 which could have bought a nice new 5 speed. I just didn't have the time to research and modify everything to make the change so at least for now have kept the T56.

 

What about the Tremec TKO 5 speed? Up to 600 ft/lb and relatively light. It's a no brainer really.
