But did you ever get the 6 speed to actually work out? That gets asked often enough and I think your the only person here who knows if the 6 speed will swap in with no problems.

Never had a chance to put it in, but they are identical (with the exception of the 6thgear and hlsd) it should work no problem 99.9% sure.

Awesome. I'm assuming it will be an auto? Not sure if I've ever heard of a manual VK. Only thing I worry about with the Altima chassis is the fact that it's built for FWD and the front wheels aren't as far forward as they are on a RWD chassis (think BMW - front wheels tucked right up with the front fender), which will make the car even more nose heavy with a V8 up front. Either way, it will be very cool.

That is what I thought. I couldn't think of a reason it wouldn't work but every time it is asked one or two members say it won't work because of some sensor or this or that etc......just wanted to put finally put it rest for any nay sayers.

It's going to be a manual, 6speed from a 350z and a company called Wilcap makes the adapter plate. Yes, the chassis will be going under total reconstruction. The biggest challenge I have is not fabricating the engine to fit nicely in the bay, but is the suspension tuning. Its going to be alot of process and error.

i was thinking this exact same thing.... BUT...... then it hit me if I ever get my F650, im going to want to convert it to 4 wheel drive..... made me realise that while the Altima is not my dream car, or a car i love, it is to some people and that its worth putting tons of money into.... in conclusion, GOOD LUCK! i hope it works. i dont know what youve already done or plan to do in the future, but if this works your car will be a beast..... i think every Altima owner here wishes they had what your trying to do... the only thing I hate about the Altima (beyond the obvious.. ie its a car) is that it isnt RWD.... you got me excited, please keep us updated. ii want to how it turns out
