Rx8 gearbox - can it fit?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I currently have a 280z which has had an engine swap to a Lexus 3uz along with the matching auto box. I want to swap to manual and have found adaptor plates that fit the rx8 gearbox.


My main question is, has anyone swapped in an rx8 box (to any engine) and does it fit without any major issues? Seeing as the Lexus auto fits I don't see the bell housing being an issue but mainly worried about the shifter location and what to do with the propshaft. 


Also any tip on general manual swaps would be appreciated incase I haven't thought of everything!
