OS Giken 6 Speed Sequential

Anyone have any experience with this transmission?

I am thinking of buying one and am looking for some feedback.

have you ever driven a race tranny??? I had one in my mustang and it was not very fun unless if you were wide open all the time. Engagement isnt smooth, they get a little hot, and they are loud as crap.

Rb Motoring reccomends:
Clutch - Lots of power and AWD. The fuse in the driveline is the clutch. You have a lot of possibilities here. Our recent favorite clutch is the Nismo twin plate clutch - along with a Nismo Slave Cylinder. Has a very nice feel, plus its a sprung hub, for that extra give in the driveline. We have used HKS/Tilton twin and triple plate clutches. They are a non -sprung hub. The HKS/Tilton twins are fairly difficult to drive. Or as Sport Compact Car called one "the clutch from hell". The triple could not be recommended for a street car. It was extremely difficult to drive on the street. We are giving ATS Carbon/Carbon clutches a try. One R32 has a twin disk, and the R34 has a triple disk.

Transmission - In a R32/R33 making over 500hp to the rear wheels, 3rd gear has had some issues while drag racing. The synchros are also not all that durable. The internals of the R32/R33 are the same as the 300ZX twin turbo. Redline Shockproof Heavy Gear Oil. We have used it in a 10.7 drag car with a stock transmission and it seems to really help with transmission durability. OS Giken transmission internal upgrades seem to be good up to 700 hp.

I haven't used any of these clutchs.
I am just passing on info:

Ok so sequential isn't the way to go.... Is there a good 6 speed out there for a R32 application, that won't break the bank?

They have a few gear sets to chose from and ratios. the'll run you around 3,600 with out shipping.

U can also try and find a good used Nismo trany but it'll only hold up to about the same as the Giken but is more expensive.

Either way you look at it you going to spend alot when it comes to the trany. There is really no cheep gear set.

there is also the hks dog box i have one fitted on mine the only thing you need to do is change the clutch plates or plate as the hks box input shaft is slightly larger in diameter and its a lot quiter than most dog boxes or sequential boxes.
