Pretty sure the z6 is pretty sought after as one of the better (maybe the best?) d-series tranny's and if you got a new clutch and flywheel for it it'll make it that much better. Maybe wait for SSR on as he's the local tranny god, or Jason since he bought my z6 tranny off me last week lol.

I prefer the Y8 for its steel shift forks. I've never had one bend, but have broken a few aluminum forks in the 92-95 trans.

 

Y8/Z6 have almost identical gearing.

 

Still, both are far from good. Longer than an LS trans.

 

A transmission really is the best bang for the buck.
