I didn't see any mention of power gains. Is there any info on that?

They should stop wasting time on this and figure out TCM tuning.

Couldn’t agree more with tcm. This car seriously needs 6 speed option along with dual clutch trans that went into GTR. It’s an excuse that luxury cars shouldn’t have sporty trans, ZF trans that goes into German lux cars shift 1000x better

What the factory should have built.
Just watch Nissan throw a closed deck engine into the Fairlady Z (Z35)... I know, wishful thinking.

That's what everyone is saying, yes
AMS themselves is saying it. Zoom in and you will see it at the bottom on the photo description "VR30DDTT 3.2L Closed Deck block"

I think this block is built more or less for the Nissan 400Z. The way everyone is trying to develop this engine, the 400Z will most likely be upgraded to over 1000whp as soon as it launches. Nobody will buy the Supra if the 400z is priced right.

I dont think they want to
This is geared towards the new 400z coming out (merc 9 speed and 6 speed manual)
The jatco 7at trans has pretty much reached its limit and with a level 10 trans and ecutek tune u can reduce ur shift times significantly
but honestly thats about it

I'm wondering if their will be a swap available. I would go for it if it meant a faster and stronger transmission.

Have you broken a trans? Very few failures due to performance on the 2016+ version. A few manufacturer defects.

I've broken the 6MT(not the whole tranny, but had to upgrade flywheel and flex plate) in the G35, but not this 7AT in my Q50. Need to get tuned first and then I'll see how it holds up.
