Possible but pricey depending on the price of the car you may be better off buying a stick. Can be done for any car that is made with a manual transmission.

Hm. My buddy had it done to his car. It ran him about 8500$... i have no idea how much it would be for a 300zx. The age of the car also would play an important role.

LOL TO ABOVE POST $8500!!!!

Alright, the stuff you need you can order from Zionsville Autosport(google it, then call there number) cost about $1500, comes w/ EVERYTHING you need, then find a mechanic that will do it, and it should only be about $1000 labor...

Yeah, I used to have a Z. A tranny swap is going to cost you from around 1,500-2,000 for parts and installation.

my dad bought a 540i auto and wanted a conversion, he was quoted 5800, but thats a 540/m5 6-speed tranny which i have driven before (in anothr car) and OMG no wonder 540 6-speed costs more.

anyways its depends, the cost of the tranny may cost 1-2k and then modding the interior a bit . . . to fit the gear shift w/o makin look ugly wil cost a bit; plus install. how old is the car . . . it may be better to sell and rebuy a 5speed.

YES ANY CAR !!! just the price matters. ive heard of a 740i conversion even.

1992 brilliant red 325i 5 speed.

hmmm... i guess my buddy got taken to the cleaners, eh? I don't think ill be telling him that. I guess this is what you get for going to a mitsubishi dealer in Greenwich, CT to have your tranny swapped.
