CD009 6M (350Z trans) with LS engine in a S30


Recommended Posts

No, I feel bad for hijacking post, but I wanted to share all the information I have so far. Never thought about the load point before so I'll keep an eye on it once shes going down the road! Maybe I should start my own build thread but its really not that exciting compared to some of the other amazing cars on the site!

 

Your post seemed to be very on topic to me. Thanks for sharing.

When you can find them, used T56's seem like a steal at $1500 these days. Most seem to go for $1800ish. Saving $600 samoleans would be nice for those if us with less cash than time. So I'm certainly interested to see where this leads.

 

Quick research last night on the internet (for what that's worth) informed me that the early CD009's didn't hold up very well to high power, but 2005 or later are supposed to be solid.

Joek - What I found was the 03-04 CD001 had a syncro issue and they had several variations of that CDxxx until they got to the CD009 which was the later transmissions I believe 06+. I'll keep everyone updated and I'm thinking with such a light car and mild build I should be ok. I'm just building a street machine that I can get in and drive anywhere so traction most likely will be an issue before anything else.

So I got the engine in and handed my shifter bracket off to a friend that works a fab shop. He looked at the shortening services and he said that it wouldn't be a problem. Using the dirty dingo mounts I slid the engine back as far as it would go. Here are a few pics from the install and I just need to adjust the mounts a bit since the tailshaft is a few degrees off center.

Sorry not much to update since a new addition has kept me out of the garage. A buddy of mine was able to get the shifter extension bracket shortened for me. Currently the engine is all the way back but will need to slide forward about an inch to line up perfectly with the shifter opening. Now I just need to get a car intake, turbo, manifolds modded with v bands a fuel sump.

I'm looking at pulling this swap off in a e36 bmw, and have been having a tough time finding much info on some of the smaller things involved in the swap like the clutch setup. I know Collins sells their adapter with a 6puck clutch that has the center spline section converted to a 24 spline vise the 26 of the t56. Are you using their disc with your setup, or running something different? I'm ready to pull the trigger on this but the clutch setup is the only thing that's holding me back. Thanks for any light you could shine on this for me.

I did not get the collins clutch. I ordered a custom Mcleod Clutch through Summit Racing. It has the center spline for the cd009 and a 11" disc for the LS. I actually ordered a package so I got  pressure plate, disc, flywheel, bolts, pilot and throwout bearing. I believe I spoke with Lee at Mcleod to give him the specs and set up the order. After that I called Summit and explained to the sales person I talk to Mcleod and need to order MCL-Custom. I also ordered a Dorman slave cycinder for a 4th gen F body, the Russel fittiing to convert the slave from a special fitting to -3an inlet, and also ran an line out of the bell housing for a remote bleeder and for the master cyl. Hope this helps! We added to the family so I havent to get garage time in to see how it works.

I've got about 800 Miles on the setup now. Runs good except the guy told me the trans was a reman and it pops out of 5th on deceleration. I've just been driving around that for the summer and will either replace or repair in the off season. I'm still working on the tune so I haven't beat it to hard but it moves pretty good. The front Yoke is a 1330 joint and I found a 1310 flange for the factory diff. I had Fast shafts make me a drive shaft 24.5" long with joints which was only 140.00.
