PPG is for high ballers lol
How much total are you into your trans now? Trans, swap kit, different driveshaft, shifter, etc.?

ohhh jezzz let me try to rethink it all lol

used trans 70k miles 600 bucks.... got pretty lucky locally lol
clutch kit i got for 1800
shaftmaser aluminium DS 450
serial nine shifter 450
made my own trans mount from stock mount
used plate 100 bucks

so 3400ish with trans... not to shabby.

i think fullblown kits are 3800 with TD, and need trans still... so add 6-1000 dollars

so i pieced mine together fairly cheap.

To make it as close to apples to apples as possible, let's only compare what a new unit costs since comparing someones used stuff versus a brand new part isn't the most fair. So realistically ~$5k in the Z trans kit. The PPG is going to be a couple grand more, but it's definitely still in the same ballpark. Definitely not a huge step up in my opinion. I haven't sat down and compared the gear ratios between the two, that would be an interesting comparison.

009 has longer gear setup... its amazing too for higher HP cars! With the 3.73s its perfect for 6-800HP car feels and pulls so much harder and longer.

with stock trans all i was doing was shfiting! Lol

I am all for the longer gears if the car makes enough torque. Mine will do 190 in fifth on a 24.5 and a 4.08 rear Let me look up the splits and I'll post a comparison. I find it hard to believe OEM Nissan gearing is going to be better than PPG's close ratio setup.

I love the thought of the PPG trans. Although the CD009 makes more sense to me money wise.

Unless I have the wrong values for the CD009 this is pretty important. Here is how the PPG (first pic) compares with the CD009. Max RPM of 9,500 and 24.5 tire diameter using stock AP1 reduction gear ratio:




Take home point is that the PPG is geared way closer, which is a good thing. Just pick the right reduction ratio or rear end ratio and you are going to be notably better off.
