Has anyone switched to Standard from Auto. How much did it run you in parts, and if someone did it for you, how much was labor?

Lots of people have, just not many comment on the final conversion prices from what I've seen.

In my situation, to date I've paid... $424.09 for everything! Only remaing parts are a flywheel, clutch, and pressure plate. :) Which easily come to another $700... :( I've done (and do) all the work myself so no labor, so the $1,100.00+ obviously is for parts.

There's also a decision of wire harness changes... would could easily add another $150-200+ to the total.

I stuck with the Auto harness and am slowly getting shit wired... reverse is done, clutch sensor and curise yet to go.

HTH,
Patrick

After burning through the clutches on my second A340E, I took on the R154 conversion. These are all pretty close numbers, but it might help....


$400: Junk Yard Day 1
R154, spare rear end (not needed), brake/clutch pedals
and brackets, flywheel, clutch start switch, forward
half of drive shaft, master/slave cylinder

$380: New Master/Slave cylinders, flywheel/pressure plate
bolts, spring clip, missing release fork, throwout bearing,
pilot bearing, seals, missing bellhousing side cover,
new pedal covers, etc.

$20: Stainless braided line between body and slave cylinder

$35: Replace broken clutch start switch and buy
missed tranmission stiffening bracket on drivers side

$450: Performance Clutch

$15: Resurface flywheel

$0: Junk Yard Day 2 :rolleyes:
Find Bell housing bottom cover for R154

$15: Misc wire and split loom, etc to fix up electrical goodies

~$1320 Total

Assumes you have all the tools, shop manuals (inc good wiring info). You could do easily get away cheaper if you personally drop the transmission as there are a lot of "minor" parts that will get missed otherwise.

Patrick,

I'd hold on to the Auto harness and ECU if I were you. The Auto ECU timing curve is a plus when using piggy backs (SAFC, E-manage, VPC, etc).

mine ended up costing me about $1600 including a spec stage 3 clutch,new master/slave cylinders, and labor (even made me a custom short shifter with threads on it), i got lucky though because my friend had a parts car and gave me a deal on the parts and didnt charge me an arm and a leg for labor(i dont have anywhere to work on it, nor the tools), i still dont have reverse lights or cruise but im too lazy to go figure it out in the cold, guess itll wait till next summer;)

So those emails of the reverse wiring didn't help?

You could buy a supra with a blown engine thats a 5 spd for under a grand easy I bet. check ebay or autotrader. sometimes it could be a long drive though...If you want a performance clutch though, then yeah it might add up to alot, but then again, you'd have a whole parts car too

I know this thread is ancient... but since I'm doing a swap within 2 weeks and some others are soon, I thought I'd bring it back...

A performance clutch is an aftermarket part, and not included in "conversion" prices. You either reuse the clutch or buy a new factory one for it to be conversion material ;). I'm up to ~$670-690...

Transmission, pedals, brackets, master/slave cylinders, lines, clutch disk, clutch pp, flywheel, shift fork, shifter assembly, shift boot, engine braces (I believe the driver's side is different for 5 speed), misc bolts... maybe one other little thing ======= $600 (from bdekoning.. he may have other stuff up for sale. hurry, he needs money for his project ;) ).

Pilot bearing, throwout bearing, shifter bushing, shifter seal, flywheel bolts (6) ======= $41 (from elmhurst toyota... still waiting on confirmation/cc charge)

Flywheel resurfacing ======== $30-50? I heard that I can get it for 30 or less but have only been quoted $48. Not a big deal though.

(not included): $300-600 on aftermarket clutch that will hold ~400-450 rwhp
