CD009 into R33 Skyline


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have a R33 that I've swapped a Neo into and is making just shy of 600rwhp.

I haven't had the usual 3rd gear issue, but I have snapped 2 input shafts. 

I'm considering going cd009, doing research I found the input shaft is the same size (spline from cd will fit into a rb clutch) but I believe where it benefits is it doesn't step down to a smaller size after the spline - this is where they always break. 

Having a 6th gear would be nice too. My question is, are the cd gearboxes really that much stronger than a skyline 5 speed? 

Also which adapter kit would I be best off looking at? I'm thinking about the JWT kit with a CBF mid mount shifter. 

I'd just need to fabricate my own cross member and have a shop modify the tailshaft.

There is one guy on here who has done it using i believe the collins kit. Have heard that the collins one is dogshit.

Fisch racing are making a complete replacement bellhousing solution ala Mazworx SR20 style which i am very interested in.

Have heard one good review about the JWT kit, i think @LaurelPWR is using one on his car.

How are you snapping input shafts on a R33 box with only 600hp? I would be more concerned there's another issue.

This guy raise a very good point. The norm is the output shaft brakes from loading up the drive train to fast. Input shaft would be hard gear changes and shocking the box when you dump it

I stopped using the stock box at 600hp but mine was due to 3rd gear not wanting to play with the other gears very well.

@Yonz has a CD009 box in, however no idea if he's around here anymore.

Everytime its been clutch kick in 4th gear at about 150kph, solid center clutch and welded diff - its expected.

As far as the t56 manual swap goes I've looked into it and the ratios are no where as ideal as the cd009, also the shift quality is junk have you ever tried to shift a tremec past 6500rpm? They don't.

In before anyone else, Samsonas.

Haha there's no way I'm spending $20k aud on a gearbox with only 600rwhp I still want to street drive it. 

Come on boys must be someone active here who is running a tr6060 or cd009 behind their rb, I want a clean install. The JWT kit looks so janky with the cut off bellhousing. 

At the moment the rod shop kit looks the best.

CD009 Rev 2 with external slave cylinder has been proven and documented to take 1000HP... keep in mind that this particular box is alot less common over the many many many 350/g35 boxes over the 8 years that were made different with alot of slight revisions.

What is dog shit with the Collins kit? 

 

Can't find an rb25 box , not even on Yahoo so need as a fix and the CD009 makes sense with a bit of bashing

ytou can get rb25 boxes brand new from just jap - granted they order them in though

    • Trail braking done right, should have the rear unsettled, such that you're actually turning the car by a noticeable amount WITH the brakes, and hence noticeably less steering input.
    • No you don't. Just no more driving in the wet, and clean your window manually before you drive
    • I'm not sure if they tick your boxes, but Haltech would be my pick. I'm an Adaptronic guy from way back, and Haltech acquired Adaptronic to basically get Andy, AND his IP on how he does things like fuel modelling etc.
    • Just on this, as there's a huge issue in your assumption Dose.   The logic you've given, is the same logic old school NA guys give for "needing back pressure" in an exhaust. If you free up an exhaust system, and keep injecting the same fuel in etc, at the same timing, you'll typically drop power. Freeing the exhaust will often make an engine want a little bit more timing, and even sometimes a little more fuel, but then it'll make even more power.   There's many mods people do and "get no extra power" when running a comparison on the same tune. Imagine a car tuned for 91, but now we say put 98 in it, see no difference. But as we now have 98 fuel, you can run more timing, and make more power, as the 91 was knock limited.   So just be very wary in your claim of "don't retune it and do a back to back and you'll see". The correct approach would be tune the car with stock manifold, swap the manifold to aftermarket, and retune it again. But no one wants to do that, and all the results we get are "this was stock, and this is manifold changed and tuned" and people put it all down as just the tune doing it.
    • Unplug ECU. Unplug TPS. Unplug boost pressure sensor. Now, all the wires, placing your ground (black) multimeter lead at the ECU end, measure resistance of the 5V line at the boost sensor plug. Then do the same to the TPS plug. Then do the same for all the other wires that relate to the TPS, or boost sensor.   All of your measurements should be very very low. You're looking to see if wiring is out of wack here.   Secondly, from memory on the R33 (not a neo motor, so I'm assuming an r34) the ground wire for the TPS and boost sensor are NOT equal to ground of the car/battery. IE, DO NOT connect ground of the sensor to the engine/body of car. You'll get a ground loop, and/or potentially screw shit up. In electronics, ground for a circuit, is not necessarily equal to ground of another circuit.   So this leads me to ask, when measuring your 5V, how are you getting 1.5V? Where are your multimeter leads touching for both the red and black lead on the multimeter?   If you're measuring power on the sensor wire, and putting ground on the car chassis or negative battery terminal, that could be all of your issues in "getting 1.5v". Electronics engineers can do some funky stuff with circuits, and when both sensors are on, it's enough laid to alter how the ECU is functioning.
