I have a 1jz w/ r154 and i cant get the trans. out Ive unbolted the drive shaft and taken it off, undone the clutch slave cyld. and removed all the bell housing bolts. everything i can think of. but when i go to pull it out it hit the fire wall, so i thought if i unbolt the motor and lifted it a bit i thought i could pull it out. no such luck. Its so tight under there that i beleive the motor was dropped in w/ the motor or that the tran has never been removed. If anyone has any ideas about how to get it out, that would be great. I really dont want to pull the motor.
