Hi, I own a 94 Nissan Altima and recently the transmission went out on it. I really run the crap out of the car, so I know why the transmission broke, and I was thinking I would like to take this chance to replace or rebuild the transmission with 240sx parts since I would think a 240sx transmission would be a little more robust than an Altima one. My question is, will a 240sx transmission bolt on to an Altima engine? If so, do you have any idea where I could get a 240sx transmission pricerange? And, if not, do you know of any other transmissions I might be interested in or any other options I might have that would solve my problem?

And please forgive me if this is a stupid question or if this has been asked before. Thank you.

Hey buddy, thanks for the reply.

Well, though I'd like to level 10 it and all, I'm a cheap bastard and I was hoping for a less costly solution :) That's why I was asking about 240sx parts and stuff. If I can't find what I'm looking for though I will definitely do that, it would be nice to have a tranny that doesn't make a grinding sound everytime I shift :)

Crap, I don't know what I was thinking. I knew the 240sx was rear wheel drive, but I was thinking that was just the driveshaft or something. Well cool thanks guys, I probably will level 10 it or something then, let me go take that emergency money out of the bank :(

I think some of the parts from a maxima tranny might be swappable.
how about all parts from 92-94 SE 5sp maximas? They are the same model #. Don't forget to get LSD. A 1st gen Altima or 92-94 SE Maxima is your cheapest solution...skip the LSD cuz they're rare to find.

i'm pretty sure that the valve bodies from the 4th gen maxes are the same as the 1st and 2nd gen valve bodies.
wow, I didn't know that. Cool!
