    Listed price from Coz is $1850 plus $120 shipping US, which at current exchange is about $2250 to you door. This is for the 98+ model with harder syncros than the earlier models.

    I would just like to see how many are interested at the moment because depending on numbers we can get them even cheaper. I will be getting one with or without the group buy, I just can risk a crappy re-build.

    I'm thinking order date in June so plenty of time to think and come up with money.:biggrin:

    such a tempting prospect,but

    well out of my budget unfortunately.....
    when you say different synchros whats the difference, the power levels didnt change in the cars so not sure why they would bother changing the box....

    I'm interested in a new gearbox as well ... but are you sure about the shipping cost?? :confused:

    I had a look at Coz's site - their USD$120 shipping is only for ground transport within the US.

    If we have enough interest, maybe we can organise a decent group freight price. I might have a few contacts that can help in this department.

    You wont get it through customs with out paying around an extra $1100 on it.
    I went down this path with Coz when I put one into my mrtt car a while back. I found it cheaper to buy it here for Nissan at trade

    I would have thought that at the worst you would be hit 10% GST and 22% duty. It's almost certain to get taxed as the only cost effective way to bring it in is on a slow boat from China and big things through the docks usually attract Mr Customs Agent. Would be looking at a minimum of $250 by sea. Should run this query by hot300zx since he brought in some rather large and expensive body parts.

    Probably 10% GST and 10% duty. But there can be a whole lot of related customs and clearance charges depending on shipment method - eg quarantine costs if it comes in on a non fumigated wooden pallet; port handling charges; delivery from port to you, etc etc. It's not clear from Cra-z-boy's post whether the $1100 also included the shipping costs.

    Two questions: Do these fit in a 1990 Jspec without any mods and are they brand new?:zlove:

    Ever heard of freight costs Chris

    Not just customs these things arnt light and come in a big box .So you need to add freight.
    It wont be cheap I went down this path but hey what would I know right.
    If I remember right it was over $500 freight and that was over 4 years ago

    Recent correspondence

    So far for five people it?s $2119 US each. +tax+customs+shipping to purchases door correspondence. So looking expensive as crazy said. I'm going to find out the Nissan price today.

    With fitments, as far as I know which is little:eek: they only changed the materials the internals are made of so should bolt straight up, so long as you match TT car with TT box and NA car with NA box. Anybody else know more?
