I just converted my 88 supra to a 5 spd. I imagine it would be a similar process. You'll probably need the tranny, master and slave clutch cylinders, the clutch and brake pedal assemblies, clutch line, 6spd flywheel and clutch, possibly the cast iron bottom mounting brackets and the inspection plate covers. It took me a couple of days cause I was hunting down parts and it was my first time. You should be able to do it without pulling the motor.I did. You need to find out the differences, if any, between the bell housing bolt patterns, and make sure you have all the necessary parts. I think the auto diff. is lower geared so doing the conversion you should have better acceleration on bottom, but your top speed will suffer. Check your diff. gears to find what you want. Everything should just bolt right up.
One of the hardest parts is that the trans tunnels are different. Toyota sells the proper tunnels for both cars so you just need to cut out the old one and weld in the new. We just did a 6 spd to auto conversion.
What would be a rough estimate on labor for the swap from you guys....( Sound Performance)..oyea by the way if i did the swap your tranny and converter will definately be in my car. A friend of mine bought your stall and tranny and has nothing but good things to say about it.
I have searched and read for days and still cant make a decision
my setup as follows
stock bottom end
272 HKS cams adjustable cam gears
AEM v1 (subject to change to something newer) UPDATE new ECU ECUMaster
A1000 fuel pump
Pump + methanol injection...
I've been getting some PM's about this setup so I thought I'd post some pictures now and update it later with results.
I used ignition coils from an 04 Corolla which are "smart" coils with built in igniters. I ditched the stock igniter by soldering the wires together and wired in these coils...
Quick question for your guys. I am over in Ireland, we do not have E85 available here on pump. The fuel available in the pumps here is 95. I do not know if that is RON or Octane.
Any car I ever had was always just setup / mapped on pump fuel.
My question here is if I have a flex...
Got my car(SC300) tuned by Alpha during his trip up to Unit 12 Motoring back in August, figured I should post the results.

I've owned my Supra for 15 years and took it to the dyno for the first time and was kind of disappointed with the numbers.
Best I could do was 499.22HP on 19PSI. I know there are many different setups but I was expecting to get somewhere in the 550 range
Fuel pressure was starting to drop at...
