I was told it was worthwhile to get the solenoid clips fitted but not bother with the stoppers, and that was from one one of the top GTR independants.

well when i got stage 4, i got circlips/stoppers/piston clips done at the same time, more for the circlips as i plan to track, and for more overall peace of mind, over the gearbox shitting itself. aka a just in case really. prevention better than cure and all that.

If you look at this pic, the fragments stuck up on the magnetic area of the shift piston are the gearstops knocked off the back of the gear by over travelling the selector sleeve. Seen very regularly to various extents at around the 25,000-30,000 mile mark. I would recommend them.
Auto part Engine Automotive engine part

And you can also see the 'shiny' areas of the peg in the centre of the piston showing the wear which allows the piston to rotate and lose the sensor pickup, hence the piston clips are needed at similar mileage upwards.

I was put off a little. I spoke to Sly from Kaizer motors and he said they don't fit them as they do more harm than good to the transmission.

I have never heard that before.

WHat are we actually talking about here? Solenoid cog stoppers? Is this solenoid caps (prevent swarf build up messing with the solenoid sensors) or cog stoppers (stopping over travel of the selection forks)?

Gear stoppers. Nylon discs that fit on the ends of the solenoids. There are 8 in total.

My 2009 car had a new box fitted in september 2011 would this later box have all the updates so you would not need the piston clips or stoppers ?

Who did the work mate?

I'm just going to go for circlips, uprated magnets, full sump off clean & Litchfield bell housing in the spring.
This will be on MY10 60 plate, with spirited use & Euro runs. No track use!

With this problem though, I really think you would be better off with one of the Indies, Sly at Kaizer and Litchfields to name just 2, both have a huge wealth of knowledge with this type of fault and are used to sorting these issues without having to try and get information from Nissan.

When mine plays up, as I'm sure it will one day, Litchfields will be my port of call for sure.

No disrespect to Middlehurst's as they are about the best NHPC, but I think the real in depth gearbox knowledge lies elsewhere.

JHMO of course
