With 10 full years of engineering S13/S14/180SX - specific drivetrain solutions we now introduce:
R33GCK-Factory: RB25DET R33 Gearbox Conversion Kit - Factory Fitment (also fits* the RB25DET R34 gearbox):

  • Factory shifter location
  • Factory shifter feel and movement
  • Factory gearbox fitment
  • No chassis modifications
  • No gearbox tilt
  • Your interior trim fits like factory
  • Huge selection of aftermarket gearsets and upgrades available

"How's this possible??!?!?!!" The answer lies in re-engineering the shifter setup on the R33 / R34 RB25DET gearbox, and then everything else neatly fell into place. So let's talk about the shifter setup first...

ABOUT THE SHIFTER

We've re-engineered the RB25DET gearbox's shifter setup so it comes out right in the middle of the standard S13 / S14 (180SX is the same chassis as the S13) shifter chassis hole. There are no tricks, no weird movement, no odd feels - just honest to goodness hardcore engineering and precision manufacturing.

By following the provided step-by-step full colour printed instruction manual you literally unbolt parts from the RB25DET gearbox and bolt in the Alpha Omega Racing parts, no modifying required - it's that simple.

ABOUT THE ADAPTER PLATE

In all the years we've made gearbox adapters we have had exactly zero issues and zero complaints and zero problems: we got this down pat. It wasn't really all that difficult... just expensive; CNC machines are repeatable 24/7, the CMM is accurate to 0.001mm, and we didn't take shortcuts - it's one thick billet piece of alloy to ensure rigidity and reliability, keeps all 4 genuine OEM Nissan alignment dowels in their original locations and then added other little thoughtful features.

It uses 18 high tensile bolts to secure the gearbox onto the motor which is more than anything else out there. We are the only company that have done the following; we mapped out extra-but-blanked holes in the R33 gearbox, then we machined corresponding holes into our billet adapter, then give you instructions on exactly where and how to drill out those holes. A wonderful side benefit of the thick billet adapter and the most bolts used in any conversion kit available is that it gives you increased engine reliability! Autospeed states Nissan "...concentrated on the rigidity of the engine (and of the engine/trans combination, which used 10 connecting bolts) by using a main bearing girdle, the two-piece sump and the closed-deck block."

CNC Machining The Full Ring Thick Billet Alloy Engine-to-Gearbox Adapter

 

This product is engineered specifically for the S13 / S14 / 200sx / Silvia - no flywheel spacer is used, instead you machine the bellhousing down; the installation manual includes all machining instructions or we have a swap-and-go machined bellhousing available too.

The results are:

  1. Input shaft spline centrelines are perfectly aligned - this means all S13 / S14 flywheels and clutches will fit; single, twin, triple, quad
  2. Perfect engine/gearbox alignment by retaining all 4 OEM alignment dowels and positions
  3. Perfect starter motor alignment
  4. Easy starter motor servicing
  5. Increased engine rigidity and reliability

Features:

  1. CNC machined billet 1-piece alloy for accuracy, rigidity and reliability
  2. CMM accurate to 0.001mm
  3. 18 bolts to secure the gearbox onto the motor
  4. OEM genuine Nissan alignment dowels included
  5. Reliefs for dust and dirt where necessary
  6. Anodised Type II

ABOUT THE CROSSMEMBER

We heard it was overkill for the cross member to be CNC machined billet alloy, and we also heard complaints about sheet metal welded cross members not fitting properly on some raced, drifted, dragged, bent, crashed, repaired chassis'. We'd rather hear complaints about price rather than complaints about things not fitting or working properly so here's our solution: a 3-piece billet CNC machined cross member giving you adjustability in all directions.

CNC Machined 3-Piece Billet Alloy Cross Member, Multi-Adjustable and Raises The Skyline Gearbox To The Factory Silvia Angle

 

Because of the perfect shifter position it is now possible to raise the gearbox back to the normal angle without cutting, hammering or smashing anything - a first for any gearbox swap in any Silvia ever! You'll notice the up-swept angle of the cross-bar to achieve zero tilt on the drivetrain - zero tilt on the engine, zero tilt on the gearbox (obviously), and zero tilt on the tailshaft. No more vibrations, no more scraping gearboxes, and no more wearing out unijoints. You don't have to worry about your engine hitting your aftermarket carbon fibre hood or stretching out your wiring or hoses or do any intercooler or exhaust piping modifications either.

Features:

  1. 3-piece design; adjustable in all directions for an easy fit
  2. The gearbox angle is perfect - not lowered or raised from the factory angle
  3. Guaranteed perfect install
  4. Anodised Type II

OTHER TRICKS AND FEATURES

To get the input shaft splines aligned you machine the bellhousing down; the installation manual includes all machining instructions or we have a swap-and-go machined bellhousing available too.

 

FLYWHEEL / CLUTCHES:
No flywheel spacer is used here. Re-use your current S13 / S14 flywheel and clutch kit, or use any aftermarket S13 / S14 flywheel/clutch kit - all single and multiplate clutches are compatible with the Alpha Omega Racing design.

 

TILT:
Alpha Omega Racing raises the back of the gearbox to the original height without cutting or bashing metal. Using our R33GCK-Factory the gearbox is tilted 0º (zero degrees).

 

EVERYTHING INCLUDED:
All necessary bits and bobs are included for a quick install, you will not have to run out to the shop to buy anything else and you use your current gearknob too!

 

SMOOTH INSTALL:
Included is a printed copy of the step-by-step instruction manual with full colour pictures, surprisingly handy to have next to you during the install. Any licensed mechanic will be able to carry out the installation and no specialist tools are required.

 

SUMMARY

  • Factory like fitment and feel
  • Shifter is perfect in every way
  • No hammering or cutting or modifying of any metal or plastic in your chassis
  • Re-use your current flywheel and clutch kit, or any other aftermarket flywheel and clutch kit made for your S13 / S14
  • Made and engineered in Australia so you know it's done right

*NOTES ON THE VARIOUS RB25DET GEARBOXES

This product is engineered to work with the rear wheel drive Nissan Skyline R33 / R34 RB25DET 5 speed manual gearboxes code FS5W30A with 40mm input shaft spline length and the push-style clutch release mechanism.

The R34 model RB25DET Skyline gearbox is "pull-style" but you can use it here when you convert it over to the R33 "push-style". The good thing about the R34 gearbox is it's the last revision of these gearboxes with the least mileage. To do the pull-to-push conversion you need the following items:

  1. R33 gearbox front cover plate including the clutch pivot ball
  2. R33 clutch slave cylinder
    • The R34 bellhousing has provisions to mount the R33 slave cylinder but the holes are blind, you will simply drill and tap these blind holes. You re-use your Silvia's clutch fork, throw out carrier and bearing

One last thing you need is the R33 shifter bushing to fit onto your R34 shifter, or upgrade to the NISMO R33 Solid Shifter.
