Anyone familiar with Nissan Titans (2007)

Anyone familiar with Nissan titan 2007. Jatco RE5R05A auto trans. Swapping from Automatic to Manual.

Swapping in FS6R30A 6 spd manu transmission to the Nissan Titan VK56

Everyone has moved the VK56 engine to the FS6R30A / chassis, meaning the vehicle is already set for manual trans, so the swap has been done and successful. i.e. 350z, xterra, frontier... FS6R-30A, 31A

Hypothesis; with an Automatic as the platform. I believe i need to lock the gear selector to Neutral and leave it there so it can function with the donor 6 spd trans. I don't know if it's possible to remove the auto trans gear selector from the CAN-bus ECU, BCU, TCU integration.

Goal; To NOT use a stand-alone ECU. Want to use the stock ECU as I want to pass smog and keep license plate on the truck and not do a whole swap every time I need to smog cert. People do make adapters and spoke to a few but vehicle already has a manual transmission.

Physically, I already have;
1.) Donor 6 spd trans and transfer case. 2.) Spare RE5R05A bellhousing 3.) Clutch pedal housing from 95 nissan pathfinder mod. to fit 4.) OE clutch pedal 5.) Wilwood 260-11098 master cyl 6.) push type slave cyl 7.) spare OEM ECU with Uprev and immobile disabled 8.) OEM driveshaft and new driveshaft

Um, should I dare say... who like reading through 10 pages of nothing? please respond with useful info. Sry with a business and a family I only have a small windows of opportunity to perform these hobby projects. Like most of you guys on here, I have mill, lathe, welders, tube bender, water jet a mile down, CNC at a friends house.

Question

so in a nut shell what you need is a manual transmission ECU that has been flashed with your trucks ID (VIN/etc)
Find a willing shop and change the "defective" ECU

Or did I miss something and the above is that too simple to actually work?

I will see if I can get another ecu to work.

The transmission originally mates to v6 vq40 engine
My truck is a v8 vk56

The dealer that I've asked for help has done some stuff for nissan race trucks and worth asking if they can flash my vin to a vq40 ecu. I know where to get ecu's so that's not an issue.

My truck never had an option for manual transmission so when I talk to these people their gonna be lost.

Like always thanks for your insight

Entropy,

No, the ECU's are different for the automatic transmission truck and the manual transmission truck. The dealer doesn't want to try to see if the V8 vin ecu and flash over to a V6 ecu.

I spoke to someone in Florida. To get the V8 with Automatic to work with a Manual transmission;
They said all that is needed is to block the error code, i.e. U1000 from the can-bus TCU to ECU. Once you do that the ECU and donor manual transmission will work.

I will have to experiment on the automatic gear selector to see if I just need to keep it in (P)ark or (N)eutral. Or someone how remove the gear selector from the system, which is what I'm going to try and do both physically and software. This shouldn't be hard.

- I got the clutch assembly installed, master cylinder, pre-fit the trans, push-pull cable shifter, lines ran from master cylinder to slave cyl... slave cyl attaches to the bell housing.

- Waiting for the adapter.

Ya.... It dawned on me the V6 to V8 issue over the weekend.
It really sounds like your choices are:
Serious $$$$$ Aftermarket ECU
Flashing the Original
Stay with the Auto
All but the last one violate the emissions BS

When you get it sorted let me know what you did
