This post is dedicated to our good friend and fellow car cnthusiast Chris Hernandez aka Chernmax. He was a true pioneer in the Nissan Maxima community and never hesitated to help a fellow member out. Chris was the first to turbo a 6thgen Nissan Maxima and inspired many others to push the 6thgen Maxima to the limit. You will be greatly missed Chris. This post is dedicated to you.

With Love – my4dsc.com and the Nissan Maxima Community!

There was a time where 6-speed swaps for the Nissan Maxima were only available for 4thgens, 5thgens and 6thgens. After 2006, Nissan no longer offered manual transmission options. All new Maxima’s now come with the CVT transmission. While the CVT provides a smoother ride and improved fuel economy, it definitely takes away from the 4DSC experience.

But don’t worry. Those times have certainly and FINALLY changed. The 6-speed swap is now officially available for the 7thgen Nissan Maxima (2009-2015). We consider the 7GM 6-speed the true meaning of a 4DSC. It has a balance of power, luxury and comfort.

Many thanks to Darren from NISformance for taking initial plunge and making this possible on Dan Evan’s 7GM. Lot’s of hours and dedication to create an OEM-feel swap. Darren is no stranger to the pioneering world of Nissan Maxima’s. He created the FWD HR Swap for use in older Maxima’s and  is also offering the  7GM 6-speed swap as service at his shop. Dan Evans is now a happy camper!

Many thanks to Platinum Auto Works  & Gerson/Sunday for also taking on the 7GM 6-speed swap. These types of projects are the ones that fuel the community into modding their Nissan Maxima’s. The Maxima world was quiet for a few years and thanks to these guys and shops, the Maxima community is back and better than ever! So who will be swap #5? Be sure to keep us posted.
