I have found a 6 speed from a 2012 hatchback will it mate to the engine? Is this posable ? I have a 2012 1.6 s

Are you talking transmission or shifter? If shifter then no, it is not that easy.

Shouldn't be hard. Might need a custom mount and 6spd tranny cables along with the shifter itself but shouldn't be harder than an auto-to-manual swap(did it in my old car). I'm actually glad you posted this because this is on my to-do list. Was it hard to find the tranny?

I have the 6 speed in my 2009 sedan. If you are looking for a 6th gear for overdrive this transmission will not give it to you. Compare the final ratio of both transmissions. Typical shifting is 1-2-4-6 and I wish my 6th gear was a REAL overdrive.

I have a 1.6 S in manual (5spd) too. I've been noticing a little more power when I turn OFF the traction control. Technically, is it making a difference?

I've got to say, for a small engine, it doesn't disappoint.

Have you ever driven a 6 speed versa? It's isn't any better than a 5 speed. There is no true overdrive with the 6 speed and I wouldn't be surprised if your mileage went down.

I've been thinking about this too! Glad you asked. Not to thread jack, but what do you guys think about swapping a 350z transmission to the Versa?

It's too much work to be done, don't even bother asking anymore. Just buy a 350z, much easier.

This is like asking somebody if a wooden ball can bounce on concrete.

Why are all the MAZDA owners on this NISSAN VERSA forums such hating downers?!?!
They just think it's too much work and money to even try. Plus a lot of time. But hey it's your car man. Do what you want! :)

I agree they shouldn't hate, but I mean I think they're just trying to warn you.

I don't own a Mazda but......you just asked if a direct drive REAR WHEEL DRIVE Z transmission would fit in a FRONT WHEEL DRIVE Versa, and you were serious.

Then you call people a hater? They are trying to help you.
