- F40 conversion kit
The kit comes with most of the parts needed to complete the swap. The only thing missing in my opinion is the clutch alignment tool, I think it should come with the kit or at least make it an option. If anyone is looking to replace a broken F35 or upgrade this is the way to go, highly recommend.
F40 swap kit
Kit comes with very poor instructions, luckily my buddy previously did a f40 swap on his base model he knew what to do without looking at them. All the parts come in nice little zzp bags etc... Kit is great and I imagine a lot of r&d went into it but for the price of $4k by the time it gets here to Canada you think there would be some sort of help to correct the speedo as its off going from f35 to f40 for obvious reasons. I reached out via email and asked for help to get the number to input into the hptuners, I was provided a number that inputted but the speedo was still off. I sent back an email saying it's still off I'm doing 'X' speed on the GPS my speedo is doing 'X'. The response back was "Those numbers are straight from Matt. So I'm not sure what to tell you man. Why don't you do some remote tuning with him and he can dial it in for you." Kinda unfortunate, ended up going to someone in the SS gang community and he helped me figure out the number, it's actually a pretty easy formula to figure out!
Good product but a little to expensive.
This kit its more expensive than what our car its worth it(little expensive),if you love your car or its a project one those are a good product but needs to have more information about installation. You have to figure out which bolt goes to where, and a very important one, (clutch wires). But a smart one will figure out before ZZP reach you with an answer.
F40 swap kit
Was shipped a defective half shaft with the reluctor wheel in the wrong location. No response from zzp customer service regarding this issue until I was advised to direct it to a person's email at zzp. The outcome of the part was some reimbursement which only covered half the cost to have the part fixed. The other outcome was to remove the part making the car non drivable for weeks to have them correct the part. No instructions included with the kit. Had to get these from another source. The instructions are outdated as the parts in the pictures aren't the same as sold in the kit. On several descriptions they use "use the hardware provided" but all hardware was put all in 1 bag for the whole kit. Ended up mocking up the kit on the bench and guessing the placement of the hardware. Other then that the kit is installed and is working. For the price this should be put togther better.
Everything is really smooth the kit is well put together and definitely worth the price only thing that isn’t included is a few bolts for the top transmission mount but those are easily found at a local hardware store. Kit bolted up pretty easy with very little modifications and if you are like me and have the ldk swap it makes installing the kit a little bit easier. Honestly I wish the lnf cobalts came with this transmission because of how much smoother and easier it is my car has every bolt on but 3 bar map sensors and it drives like a stock car. My car is pretty low and I used a trans mount spacer and I installed steering rack spacers and I can’t hear any creeks or binds that some people say they have experienced. I also have the upgraded mounts from zzp which make the transmission feel great ( I am used to poly mounts I don’t care about the added vibrations). If you are debating building an f35 trans or buying this kit without a doubt I would invest in this kit if you like your car and plan on keeping it long term. I haven’t installed it yet but I feel with the short shift mod the shifter will feel perfect it’s very smooth and has a pretty decent weight to it. Only recommendation is have time and patience when installing this kit and stay organized and it will go pretty smooth for the install.
