Search around you can even find a video of someone shifting it.

I've got pics of the install in my build thread: http://forums.tbforums.com/showthrea...166061&page=52

You have to take the tail housing off and cut the shifter rod. It's not that bad though, just make sure that the 'center' plate that holds all the bearings and gears in the front part of the case doesn't try to come off with the tail housing, they're all held together with the same set of bolts. There's nothing complicated going on with the tail housing itself, but you'd be in a world of pain if that center plate backed out.

You have to be VERY patient cause it took a LONG time for JohnMC to get his unit.

Once I get a hold of a transmission and an adapter I'll figure out what needs to be done, but I have driven a 370z with a cd009 and loved it I think it will be perfect for my 16v turbo project.
I myself own a 370z Nismo and I love that tranny though it's noisier than I expected, probably because I have a custom race clutch installed on the car.

I'll be running a 3.31 final on my 740 with the swapped and build T6. But since I'll push twice the HP I have in the 370z (around 700 hp, the Nismo has 350 crank hp) I think that the setup will be pretty good.

Absolutely worth noting. It was a solid 3 1/2 months from order to delivery. Actually, that reminds me, he still hasn't sent the offset shifter.

Yeah I was wondering if that order was fulfilled in a faster way than the original one. This guy isn't going to be in business very long if he keeps delivery times of that magnitude.

I sent him another email. On Aug 23 he said he'd get that out to me, but no real specifics. I should have been bugging him more frequently, I guess.

Yeah I meant that toward the OP with the yoshifab custom setup.

I have an early prototype that is pretty ugly. It's a Lemons car so I just needed it to function for a race last weekend. I will post a picture of a production unit when I have it on the car.
