All year Z31 Tranny's will mount up with the engine. The problem is the companion flanges, easiest way to avoid this is find a tranny from the same year,model (2+2, Turbo etc) if thats not an option, if its a 5speed any tranny from a 87-89 should work. providing its from the same trim.

thank you, just so i get this right only a 300zx tranny will work,not a 280zx or any of the or 79 - 86, 240 260 or 280 zxs


Thats correct. only a Z31 transmission will work, And if you want it to be bolt in, find one from the same model as your car, So if its a 1987 you will want a 87 tranny, if its a 5 speed you will want a 1987 5 speed transmission.

I got a cuestion i have a 1990 nissan 300zx 2+2 non turbo the transmission of one zx 1988 can fit on my car
