wow the work is takes might as well buy a 6spd unless i get a auto tt for under 15k
It's almost always better to buy what you want, in major items, than to try to buy and make major mods. Kinda like buying a 2 bedroom house when you need a 6 car garage.Luder said:wow the work is takes might as well buy a 6spd unless i get a auto tt for under 15k
First, if you think that the tranny has only one bad synchro, good luck. I know all about synchro replacement.cheshirechap said:First off Thanks for the words of encouragement! Second, auto to stock 6 speed you can still pick up a v160 with a bad synchro for around $1k-$1.5k and rebuild it for cheaper than the cost of a brand new one. The cost of JDM Auto to 6 speed(or even stock auto to 6 speed) will be different because you initially don't need the 6 speed ECU if you can live with the timing pull. Used synchros? wtf I was talking differential/transmission/etc all the big parts which you can get when people upgrade.
Warrantied parts... You're kidding right? You put a warrantied part in a modified car and toyota's going to laugh at you when you bring it in. Not to mention they laugh at you anyway for parts that could take abuse from "the way you drive." They tried to blame 3 clutch failures on me when it was their fault for putting in one with the wrong number of dampeners and this is on a stock car. I had to do a load of research and I finally got it out of my one of my father's friends who owns a dealership out in the boonies that toyota was putting the wrong clutches in this particular car.
