    Gearbox!

    Just blown 2nd gear from my SR s14a box at a drift day yesterday, haven't stripped to inspect but if someone has a working box or even a CA box I can swap the bell housing over then let me know. Closer to Newton Abbot in Devon the better. Cheers

    Ye I've asked all the local guys I know and it's looking that way. Was considering upgrade but christ prices of parts have skyrocketed. Would actually quite like the 6 speed s15 box but then I need s15 starter, dmf and clutch etc so ye looking like stock 5 speed for me. Thanks for replying though.

    if your blowing up s14A boxes then you will certainly blow up an s15 box.
    TBH i would just stump up the cash and put a bmw box or an r33 or a 350z box, then not have to worry about blowing another one.

    Have you seen how much some gearbox conversions are going for, last 350z one I just seen on facebook with all the adaptor kit etc was nearly 3k, you can buy a whole 350z for about 4.5k lol. Mine has lasted a long time so I think I'm generally fairly sympathetic on my gear changes but will see, I do run a fairly grippy car but it is still under 300hp at the moment. If another goes in the next year then I will consider an upgrade...

    JDM garage have no sr gearbox's in stock.

    Thanks @nissanboi but will try and locate one over here first if I can.

    Sent you a txt @dbssgti as your forum inbox was full!

    Cheers guys

    There is no point fitting another SR box unless you're going to upgrade the internals if you're smashing them at sub 300 hp.

    I mean I've broken 1 gearbox in 9 years and probably done 40-45 drift days, that isn't bad.... But ye I do agree somewhat if it happens again in less time then I will look to upgrade I'm sure.

    I have messaged garage D out of curiosity but would want it delivered as they are a good 200 miles from me, I am guessing they are going to be quite pricey though.

    In the meantime I have bought another gearbox second hand with broken output shaft and hoping to make 1 good box out of the 2, won't be doing that for a little while though so probably do it over winter and get back to some drifting next year. Thanks for all the replies, glad to see the forum isn't dead
