Z33 Tranny swap

OK I am going to be buying an S14 and am going to do a tranny swap with the Z33 from a 350Z. I am pretty sure that it will swap fairly easily from what I've seen. So I have two questions. One, am I wrong about the Z33 working? Two, will it matter if I buy a car that is an auto or a manual if I am planning on swapping the tranny anyway? Thank you.

Your mating the Z33 6spd Trans to what motor? A stock KA? or are you doing a complete VQ swap?

It shouldn't matter if the car is auto, as long as the neccessary conversions are made to allow the manual trans to function.

Yes I am planning on doing the VQ swap. Is there very much extra I'll have to do with this swap if I start with an auto versus a manual? Reason I am asking is that I can get an auto much cheaper than a manual and if they both work about the same I would like the cheaper car = more money for the swap and other parts.

Auto cheaper than manual? WTF is this world coming to? If the cost in price isnt so drastic, I say spring for the 6 speed becuase the Auto would be pretty lame.

No what I'm saying is that I can find an S14 with the KA/auto cheaper than one with the manual, then do the swap. I am definitely going with the 6 speed with the swap.
