the w58 can be found in supras from 82-98... i picked up my last one from a 99 sc300 and worked fine for about a year and a half... im looking to purchase a new transmission case from toyota however im wondering if the w58 from an older 82-85 celica/supra will be the same as a w58 from a 93-98 n/a mk4 supra....

anyone know?


i would assume there would be a price difference... i could be wrong... but going from lexus prices to toyota prices... there are huge differences...

no

mkiv W58's are bulkier internally than mk3 versions. Same goes for the old celicas. If you want a W58, try to find a mkiv

No you don't need a transmission case at all....thats not what failed, you 3rd gear sheared, which then subsequently took out all the internals of your tranny from the metal fragments...Your transmission case is likely just fine...

You can pick up a used early 90's W55 tranny(not to be confused with the WEAK W55's found in the IS300's) from the toyota 2wd 4 cylinder trucks for a 100.00(sometimes even free), unbolt the bellhousing from your W58 and the tailshaft cone and shifter assembly from your w58 and put it on the W55, you now have a w58 for virtually nothing....

I've been preaching this for years on the forum's, no one ever does it except me I guess...they keep buying used W58's for 250-500 when there are a ton of W55's out there for virtually nothing...

Hope that helps...
