I know that there is a way to tell turbo and na cars via vin, but how about originality of 6spd? Thanks in advance!

Driver's door tag will say A340 for auto cars and V160 for six-speed cars.

Tranny cross member on a 6 speed won't work on a Auto so most auto to 6 speed swap will reuse the auto crossmember. I believe this is the only part thats specific to 6 speed cars.

On Japanese models,it will also be located on the "vin" Tag. Where it says Model, the top line, will read something like:

GF-JZA80-ALFQV

With GF being the country code, JZA80 meaning MKIV supra, A meaning supra again, L meaning lift back(hardtop), and F meaning 6 speed. Q in this case was the Trim level of RZ, and V was Twin Turbo GTE motor.

On JDM's the third letter could be either
F= 6 speed
M= 5 speed
P= 4 speed auto

Perhaps there is something similar for the US spec cars? Someone else can probably chime in or correct me.

I checked the vin decoder we use in our insurance software and didn't find anything on transmission in the first 10 digits for us spec vins. The remaining 7 are usually manufacturer specific and I'm certain the code is in there somewhere but I don't know which digit it is. I'll pull the full spec when I'm in the office Monday and reply if nobody has posted a definitive answer for us spec vins.

Not sure if this is correct. I used the 6spd crossmember that came with my V160 for my swapped car and it worked fine.

6 speed transmission cross member would work if you have an Auto TT car ... but not an Auto NA car

if your car was originally auto TT then it is same with the 6 speed that is why you were able to use it.


Came to know this in one of my first MKIVs where we did a swap from Auto to 6 speed.

The auto tt and 6 speed tt transmission cross member are the same.
The NA auto and NA 5 speed transmission cross member are the same.
The transmission mounts are all different though .
Got that info from Curt Aigner when the swap was being done.

Here are the part numbers :
12371-46090 Na 5 Speed Rubber Trans Mount
12371-46020 Na Auto Rubber Trans Mount
12371-46110 Tt 6 Speed Rubber Trans Mount
12371-46120 Tt Auto Rubber Trans Mount

57255-14231 Aluminum Crossmember Tt Auto And Tt 6 Speed
57255-24061 Aluminum Crossmember Na Auto And Na 5 Speed
