300Z tranny in a J30

My 1995 Infiniti J30 transmission has been acting up recently at high speeds (overdrive clutch not locking, dropping into 3rd gear), so I took it in to a transmission shop that Sam Memolo reccommended here in Atlanta. It doesn't look good...they will probably have to rebuild the thing, and it will probably cost $2k or something. My other option is to get a tranny from Jasper or something and put it in myself. Now I know that these J30 transmissions are notoriously weak, so my question is, since my car has the same V6 210hp engine as the 300Z, is there a way to get a 300Z tranny on there without serious modification? Or maybe another tranny that is a little beefier than the J30? Thanks for any help.

from what i understand the J30 has the exact same drivetrain as an NA 300Z

it should swap right in, unless im completely wrong
which happens

okay, but is the 300z tranny any more robust/reliable than the j30?

My dad has a J30, they SHOULD be the exact same transmission, I dont know why they would use same everything else and different transmission. But if they are different internally I would put my money on the z32 to be better.
