ive got a 86.5 toyota supra N/A im swapping a jdm 7mgte into it. so i got the engine in. everything was going semi well with a few minor scuffles getting the engine mounts to line up. but anyways. i went to put the transmission cross member in and i got it bolted up to the car but the tranny mount on the transmission was too far over to the drivers side. the transmission seems like its in right spot and shouldnt have to move. i tried to move it and it doesnt have enough room to move. so i believe its in the right spot. when i turn the cross member around it fits perfect it even lines up on the car. but the bolt holes arent anywhere near close. so the cross member usually sits like this \==/ but the tranny doesnt line up. when its like this or turned around /==\ the tranny lines up but the bolt holes arent anywhere near close. it would work but the cross member would need to be moved toward the front of the car. i was told the 7mge w58 trans cross member would work on the 7mgte r154. so does anyone know if it will work and i just need to figure out why its not lining up or do i actually need the cross member from the r154 trans.

Had the same issue and when i went to the R154 crossmember it was still off by a little bit. I ended up just prying it until it fit. I also have a 86.5

from what i read 86.5 is more or less an 87 but the crossmembers are definitely diffrerent.
