Default Transmission swap question

So I’m well aware of people manual swapping their 7th gen maximas, but I was wondering if it were possible to swap out the transmission for an automatic? Maybe out of a 350 or 370z since they have pretty much the same engine. Asking in case my tranny goes out later. I get manual swapping it because...fun lol, but I have a lot of people (family and friends) that use my car and it would make my life a lot easier to do an automatic swap I stead of teaching everyone how to drive manual. Would it be possible?usps tracking showbox speed test

The Maxima is front wheel drive. I don't think you will have much success installing a rear wheel drive transmission in it.

Front wheel drive and rear wheel drive VQ35DE engines have different bolt patterns for the transmission bellhousing...along with the rear wheel drive transmission is twice as long as the front wheel drive trans.
