I have just fitted a SII Bluebird box in it and it is like driving a new car. The gear change is exact and feels and sound great.
Would recommend the change.
One thing though, just trying to make sure the speedo is accuarte. What revs should be at at 80kph?

The gear lever was a far better design, it spread the wearing surface and had some very hard nylon inserts, but alias, would not fit so I had to use my old lever with washers to fill the gaps.
To me it seems more than worn parts, the Bluebird box makes that notchy sound and the gears are all in specific locations, not generally over here and there.
The gearing feels a bit better to me, not much in the numbers. One thing I wanted was a longer 5th, but the 280ZX is the one with that!
Gearbox FS5W71B as fitted to the SI & SII Bluebird: -
This was cheap box, $140 off eBay which is a lot cheaper than want you would pay for a 260 box.
