You will need these when you get the gearbox ( These are all r33 parts except the gear knob )

(had to cut peices off so it would go into gear)

( still using the auto surround for now until i find a r34 manual one )

Here is the wiring for the inhibitor and reverse switch. I didnt connect the neutural switch.

that is the connector from the car the wires to work with are the RED(REVERSE), BLACK with PINK(INHIBITOR), and Grey(POWER)

Anyways here is the allocating pins from the auto gearbox

And here is a rough diagram of how to connect it to the manual gearbox. Colour coded

wiringdiagram_copy(1).jpg

**both brown wires are the same.Doesnt matter which brown goes to what..its the same**

The reverse switch consists of two brown wires(as seen in diagram) . One brown wire from the reverse switch joins together with the inhibitor(BLACK with Pink) and the power(GREY).

The REVERSE wire (red wire from the auto plug) connects onto the remaining brown wire of the reverse switch.

So for the reverse switch, one brown wire connects to the reverse signal(red wire) and the other brown wire joins with the inhibitor and power(3 joint wires).

Hope that is explaining it easy.

The auto ECU will work fine with the gearbox. You will geet a A/T light up on your cluster, but dont worry nothing is wrong.

Hope my tutorial is helpful for all you r34 tiptronic owners wanting to do a conversion with r33 gtst parts.

Glad to help others.

cheers,

Sorry to bump and old thread. Does anyone have the wiring diagram or pictures for this at all please? I'm struggling with what goes where. Thank you in advance!

If I was buying a R34 How can I tell if it was originally a Manual or an automatic. is there a number on the Id plate that would specify what the car was when it was manufactured

Yes. The Id plate tells you what transmission

The original Nissan Motor Co., LTD. Japan plate has the type of transmission the car was born with, stamped at the bottom next to "Trans".

If it is/was an automatic, the stamping will read: RE4****. See attached as an example. 

If it is a manual, the stamping will read: FS5W****.

"*" = the star won't actually be stamped, but different models have different suffix after the letters/numbers of what I've posted.

thanks that is very help full. 

Is the car devalued if it was once a Auto and now a manual?   I have found a coupe GTV R34 For 9k is that a reasonable price for a no original car.

Not a worry mate.

In my opinion, the value stays the same if not increases it as it's a far better car to drive, now it is a manual. Best to always get it checked by a professional that the conversion was done correctly if you can't spot stuff like, dodgy wiring, hacked firewall for the clutch master cyl etc, yourself.

The auto's aren't a bad thing, they're very reliable, but they're not great for nearly all things that involve spirited driving. 😊
