Default Rebuild kits for cd009?

I'm fixing to get my hands on a cd009 transmission model cd8. The guy says 5th gear is shot. Trans cost $130. Just trying to find a rebuild kit.

You’d be better off finding a good one for $500.

5th gear is shot is pretty vague. Is the gear bad or the synchro? That's the difference between expensive parts and not expensive parts.

Thanks for the advise I'm going to use it. There's a guy that wants $550 for one that. Problem is alot of people don't know the miles that were on them.

Usually it's the fifth gear synchro that goes bad not the actual gear. The fifth gear on my 370z grinds if I put it in too fast at high revs. The car has 41K miles. It was like that when I bought it at 27K miles.

Does he at least know what year/model the tranny came from? Don't buy anything before the 2006 year/date.

So it's going to be a hit and miss pretty much trying to find a good cd009. Maybe I should just stick to doing a t5 swap. I was trying to find a strong transmission so I didn't have to worry about it while I need up the motor. I haven't a clue what hp I'm shooting for yet. Right now there is a m46 behide my 740. Don't want to do anything to the motor until I get that thing out of there.

T5 swap is pretty straight forward with the adapter plates, I have a goofy one from a300zx turbo which required some finagling with the shifter

If you're not aiming at a 400+ whp goal you might as well go with the T5... You could find a recent CD009 (2008-2011) for a decent price but you'll have to get the Deeworks adapter that costs $360 USD. The T5 adapter is $225. You'd also need a shifter relocator which is another $350 to $500 depending on the make/model you'd choose.

Also you'd have to probably swap your final gear for a 3.31 because you'll hate the cd009 gear ratios if you don't.

Problem is getting the shifter in a spot where you can shift in a 740 using the t5. How you gonna do that? It's gonna be custom shifter, driveline, tranny mount, clutch disc, pressure plate. All that no matter what custom tranny you want. But getrag adapter is 150 from STS I believe.

I like getrag 265 bmw 5 speed myself. Super strong. Also no fitting problems. Also you can remove the tranny and leave the bellhousing in the car if you need to take it out for some reason.

There is this CD009 from a 2008 G37 (usually not driven as hard as a 350/370z) in SC...

Got a hold of a 2009 cd8 mileage under a 100k. Picked it up today for $550 has to get it out a wrecked car. So one thing checked off my list. Next is the drive shaft. Finally gear. Adpeter, etc. Thanks for the advise forgot about swapping the 3.75 for a 3.31. shouldn't be hard to find that.

I may have one for sale... I was to install it on my 740 but I'm swapping a S14 complete subframe and diff instead.

I have the gear and the matching pinion.

It's a Nissan 240sx from the 90's.

No worry it's on a shelf in my garage, still in the packaging it was delivered in!

Just pm me if you ever need it and can't find one closer to where you are.

So the driveshaft can I just swap the yokes out from the m46 to a cd009 yoke. Have read two threads and getting mixed up on what needs to happen here.

The shifter I can fab up something that's not hard for me.

The transmissions are different lengths. Here they are side by side.



If it is a 7/9 series, Yoshifab sells the front half. Here's mine:

You could get a two piece driveshaft from a G37 and fab something for the center support and have it shortened + rear Volvo diff flange welded to it?

They are much more beefier than the Volvo driveshaft.

I believe I'm going to take the route you have suggested. On using the g37 driveshaft it does look way beefier then the Volvo. Also found a driveshaft shop not far from me.
