Already got some progress on the offseason projects. Car is up high on stands and transmission is out. This is the first time being able to put the stock Toyota W58 next to the Z32 turbo trans. Weight difference is 17lbs heavier for the Nissan transmission. Not much of a gain for adding something that will handle more power. The stock Toyota trans was probably at its max with the 1UZ and there isn't much for parts out there for it while the Nissan trans still has everything out there for fixing. The adaptor plate needed to mate this trans to the motor was purchased today so I can start measuring to see what shifter setup I need to make this work.

I weighed the fenders before they get picked up to get a mold made of them. They come in at 14lbs each so anything I gain from the trans I should lose from the new fenders.

Toyota on the left, Nissan on the right:
