I just bought a '78 280 Z. It is an auto and I want to put a manual trans in. Most people tell me that if I am going to actually drive the car, which I am, I need a 5-speed? Can I use only Z trans or can I use ZX trans? 240? 260? 300???
I have a 78 z2+2, it's an auto...it's not too bad on performance...although i would suggest a 5-speed. I here that just about all the tranny's will work, although there is the speedometer cable too...i'm sure someone on here knows more about it than me. Go to the datsun z garage...i'm not sure of the addy, but just type that in on a search engine...they have all the specs if i remember correctly.
