Where can I find an OEM R33 GTR gearbox rebuild kit?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I was wondering if someone could please point me in the direction of where I can purchase a reputable OEM R33 GTR gearbox rebuild kit? At the moment I'm still shopping around for an AWD gearbox, however I'd like to get a better idea expense wise for the cost of the rebuild before jumping at anything. I have been looking at this kit: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Complete-Gearbox-Rebuild-Kit-inc-Synchros-For-R33-GTR-Skyline-RB26DETT/153515049211?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D1f3399f954174a4b8cf4d1166092d1a3%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D283966302339%26itm%3D153515049211%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A2d1df879-d481-11ea-a68c-0e4baf4fb02f|parentrq%3Aada5b9541730a6e67f538151ffdcd7f4|iid%3A1

Sold by a business in the UK called Conceptua Tuning that as far as I know have their own brand of OEM parts "Kenjutsu Racing Lab" although I do have some slight scepticism, because I'm unable to find any feedback in regards to their rebuild kits.

I'd like to just state ahead of time that I don't plan on purchasing an aftermarket gearset for the time being, as I'm only in the early stages of my RB & GTR driveline swapped Datsun 260Z project.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Don't know about that kit specifically but after buying a 2nd hand box, rebuild kit and labour costs, it may not make economical sense considering new gearboxes are around 3000 - 3500 aud. There is also a lot of parts in a 2nd hand box that may be worn and not incuded in that rebuild kit either. Unless you know what you're doing and rebuilding it yourself, probably not worth the hassle and uncertainty.

That company has been around a while and as far as i know theyre not shit...but i pieced together oem nissan stuff for a little less than their kit. Although was a bit of dicking around to do. 

As above though, you will likely find things like worn couplers/gear teeth once the box is apart. Going whole box brand new would be good idea if you have the extra $$

I was going to reply when you first posted this as there is no real "complete" rebuild kit for a gearbox. There is way too much stuff going on for that. You really need to know what you are looking for to repair them, or you take it to a professional. As Hardsteppa mentioned gears on the main shaft are frequently rooted. We just did the old man's GTR box last month and 1st and 2nd were fked. Have a look at the sides of the gear selector section, they should look like arrow heads, unlike these. Also if there is selector teeth completely missing and your drain plug or looks like this, things are bad. New synchro noted on left, one on right stuffed.
