  1. Thank you calZ I think I will stick with the CD then and use a SerialNine relocation shifter. Which adapter kit did you go for in your application? There are quite a few options for me and the JZ but I’m unsure, heard 50/50 feedback on Collins kits. Yeah 600 is the absolute max but I would like to stick to 450/500 to be honest but my idea is just to overbuild. Ok cool. I was gona see if I were to keep the LN R200, could I then upgrade my stub axles and shafts using the Futofab kit? Not sure if this is a cost effective way to do it though… https://www.futofab.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&category_id=21&flypage=flypage_images.tpl&product_id=176&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=81 Or is going straight into a complete 8.8 rear conversion the best way in the long run? In case I do fancy going 600+ hahah Also, do you know what ratio diff would be best paired with the CD009? Thanks!
  2. Apologies, I included a special character in my last thread title and it corrupted the page. I can’t seem to delete it, sorry! See repost below ———————————————————— Hey all, Hope you’re good. I’ve been browsing the HybridZ forums a bit but I’ve not managed to find anything specific to the swap that I’m doing. I have a LHD 1977 280z and a 2JZ-GTE VVTi and not sure whether to mate with either a T56 Magnum F or a CD009. Please feel free to direct me to a thread which can answer what I’m outlining below! These would be my two options both brand new. Grannas T56 Magnum F kit or the Collins/Autosports/SerialNine CD009 adapter kits.. Gear T-56 F CD009 1st 2.66 3.78 2nd 1.78 2.32 3rd 1.30 1.62 4th 1.00 1.27 5th 0.80 1.00 6th 0.63 0.79 I’m based in West Sussex, UK with a LHD 1977 280Z. Lots of twisty roads and sharp turns round here... Not really too fussed about cruising and fuel economy as this will not be a daily. I’ll be looking to build my Z primarily for spirited driving and to be able to take on track occasionally. I will be doing a single turbo conversion and looking to push around 500-600 bhp max. I have to say I am leaning more towards the CD009 because of parts availability, it is also cheaper too. But will need some work done to fit in the tunnel nicely, so I’ve read. My indecision is when it comes to drivability. I’m really stuck between both CD009 and T56 Magnum F (close ratio version) and what would be better suited to what I want to build the car for based on the conditions above (I guess for the type of roads over here and the tracks we have, shorter gears are better?) I’m also quite unsure on which diff I should go for that will get the most out of whatever transmission I decide on. Do you guys have any thoughts as to what is the best pairing would be for the 2JZ in terms of transmission and diff? Can I stick with the long nose R200? Or do a SN R200 conversion, 8.8 conversion… etc. Just trying to really narrow down those options too. There are a few bits that’s I’ve read about each transmission but I haven’t managed to find technical pros and cons/justifications that is specific to my chassis and swap. I’m not sure how much of that information I can take to crossover with my build so I just would rather ask to make sure. Please let me know if you need any more info from me! Thank you very much.

We don’t really have any long stretched roads in the area that I live in - lots of twisty roads and sharp turns let’s say.
