This is a great alternative to replacing your 6-speed knob on your Nissan Maxima. The original knobs are discontinued and no longer available. If you do find them brand new, the pricing is usually over $200. The GTR R34 is the same and will work great. It’s only $30 bucks more than the original pricing of the 2002-2006 6-speed shift knob. You’ll also require an adapter to convert M12 thread to M10, which is available for under $10.00. Additionally, we suggest using Permatex 25210 High Strength Removable Threadlocker.

OEM Part Number: 32865-AA420
Original Price:

Last week, Nissan team members celebrated the last Maxima to roll off of the Smyrna assembly line!
Over the last 20 years, the Maxima has helped establish Nissan as a key player in the global auto industry, Smyrna as one of North America’s finest manufacturing plants, and our team members as some of the best technicians on the planet.

Virtually every Nissan Smyrna employee has played a role in creating the Maxima’s legacy. Since the start of Maxima production (all the way back in 2003!), there have been a total of over 1 million Maximas produced. But despite that large quantity, quality never slipped. In fact, throughout the course of its production, the Maxima won five different manufacturing-related J.D. Power awards, including being named the “Best Overall Model” in this year’s J.D. Power Initial Quality Study.

Smyrna is proud to have been the home of Maxima for 20 years. And as we roll forward, the legacy of the Maxima and the team members that built it will go on to inspire the bright future of Nissan Smyrna!


This post is dedicated to Mike. We met him at one of our ECM event where he drove his Maxima with freshly custom painted engine day. He was so excited and happy to show off this hard work. He truly loved modding his 4thgen Nissan Maxima. This is such a devasting and tragic loss for the Nissan Maxima community. You will be greatly missed Mike!

Mike passed of health related causes at only the age of 32. He had an infection in his brain caused by Listeria Rhombencephalitis, which can mimic stroke like symptoms. If you don’t know about Listeria anyone is susceptible. You can learn more on it here:


We send our deepest condolences to his friends and family. Gone but never forgotten!

  • Finally got my 2nd gen swap running on ECU master black emu. Had to cut the flywheel with more teeth for the crank sensor.
  • Found on FB for used cheap.
  • ECU master has the crank trigger decoded but for some reason it wasn’t working properly for me, so I made a better trigger pattern.
