Yep, the Nismo is just like a 350Z was at one point, only manual transmissions. There are a lot of complaints about the clutch but none that I know of with the transmission itself.

What?


you could get NISMO trucks in 6-speed man or 5-speed auto. Always.

The Pro-4x continues this.

no, the Pro 4x is NOT available with a manual transmission. does anyone know the last year a manual transmission was available on the Nismo?

um........ i just went to NNA's website and you can order a Pro4x with manual in the KC models as it's ALWAYS been since the 2nd gen came out. you can get a KC 4x4 in 6 spd, all 2wd Pro4x (or NISMOs) are auto, all CC Pro4x (or NISMOs), regardless of 2wd or 4wd, are auto... period. always have been, and probably always be for the 2nd gen frontier

also, the 350z (and now 370z) have ALWAYS been offered in either manual or automatic... where are you coming up with these "facts"? there were certain combinations that only came with certain engines, ie in 05, if you had a manual transmission you got the "revup" motor (300hp), but all 06's got it and then they moved to the "HR" motor in 07 and 08 regardless of transmission

it is true that all nismo z's are manuals because thats all that is offered on nismo Zs and no AT 03-06 Z ever came with the revup, they all ran the 287hp non rev up but thats moving slightly off point that the pro4x is still available with a manual tranny. the 6 speed manual tranny in a z is good for over 500 hp and the 6 speed in the frontier is essentially the same tranny with a different mount for the stick and different gear ratios i believe. good tranny, weak factory clutch.

i dont think ToddG has the NISMO, i believe his is just an SE CC. and the SE CC's can still get the 6sp.

colin i went back and looked on my350 and everything i found shows that all 06's have the revup motor. of course you can't believe everything you read on the internetz though haha. my friend has an 06 that i'm going to hang out with tomorrow at a cookout, i'll ask him, i'm pretty sure he'll know since he works at a nissan dealership :thumbsup:
