Hello,

I'm researching a transmission upgrade and wanted to know if the gear box and transfer case form a Patrol 260 2.8D will bolt on to a Nissan SD33T.

I currently have Borg Warner T19 4 speed with a Dana 300 Transfer case and this seems to be a good option due to the right side and centered drive lines for my vehicle.

The reason for the upgrade is speed is limited in the highway on the 4 speed, RPM are high for the speed.

I appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks,

Mike

The pictured gearbox will not work due to driveshaft angle to diff. However the 260 I would assume would work fine so long as you swap bellhousing to suit the sd, I can't imagine them changing the design that much for the 2.8

Rust is just natural weight reduction.

The RD and SD use different bellhousing bolt patterns, so to use a 260 transmission (from memory the same as a GQ/Y60 box) you'd need an adapter.
It may be worth looking into other Borg Warner/Tremec transmissions, there may be a 5 speed with a similar front bolt pattern so your existing bellhousing can be reused, and hopefully input shaft.
