Our Z32/RB25 to SR20 gearbox bell housings are a step closer with our billet prototype almost finished.

Here's what 300kg's of 6061-T6 aluminium looks like:

Expected price of $999 for production version which will be high pressure cast aluminium.

ETA of 12 weeks if all goes to plan with the fitment of the prototype.

Greg,
Obviously we will still require a tailshaft, but does this remove the need for flywheel spacers, and a dog leg shifter?

Correct, one is in the making (similar to Nismo R34)

So what other parts will be required for conversion on s15.

Rb 25 box, custom tails haft, gb mount, new dog leg shifter. Anything else?

Do you know how far the shifter going to seat from the stock position? Will I still be able to use stock plastic and other trim bits?

Basically I'm just trying to compare pros/cons with say AlphaOmega conversion kit for example.

What you've listed is about it however you can use either the Z32 or RB25 gearbox with our bell housing.

I'll be fitting the prototype into my S15 in a few weeks (I leave for SEMA next Tuesday) and then I'll be able to comment on the shifter location then but as it's essentially an RB25/Z32 bell housing with an SR20 bolt pattern it's going to sit in the same position as is any other kit that isn't using a flywheel spacer.

We're working on a shifter relocator at this stage for the RB25 box however it won't be ready before the bell housings. We've also finished the shifter relocator for the Z32 box also.

What's happening with this bell housing for the s15? Is it in production yet? I don't see any information on the gktech website about it.

We will only be getting these into production if we get a solid 40 people interested as the cost is 60k to move forward with these.

Apparently he needs 100 people to make it even worth producing
