If possible,try to get a 5-speed from an 81 maxima diesel. It will bolt right up to your z. 1st and 2nd gear on this tranny are geared for increased acceleration. The diesel needs all the help it can get.

I think you're right, but if you want increased acceleration, then just go pull a 3.9 rear end out of a '79-'83 280zx 2+2 5spd car.

You can also get a 3.9 out of 280zx 82-83 non-turbo.

Dan, Try this tranny

If you want a low gear 5 speed try these combos. Get an 81-83 5 speed and swap in the input shaft and front countershaft gear from a 79 5 speed for these ratios:1st, 3.422:1 2nd,2.0765:1 3rd 1.46126:1 , 4th 1:1 , 5th 0.8326:1. This next one has some killer low end acceleration but there is a huge gap between 3rd and 4th gear. Swap in a 74 260 input shaft and front countershaft gear on to a 81-83 5 speed for the following ratios. 1st, 3.706:1 2nd,2.245:1 3rd 1.58023:1 4th, 1:1 5th 0.9004:1. Combine either of these tranny combo's with a 3.9 rear end gear for outstanding acceleration. Later,norm
