Fresh oil change.

I had a r154 left over from another project and decided to convert the GS to 5spd.

In the process of removing the lower dash to add a pedal, I found a button.

Waiting to see the outcome, I will most likely do one of my GS4's to manual as well.

welp, it seems that much more easier to go 5 speed on a 300 vs a 400, itll be around 2k for a 5 speed swap in a 400 :/

I actually like the wheel/suspension setup. With those coilovers you can go super low on the 17s. Gives the car an aggressive look that you just don't see on other 2GS's. Kudos.

Please post detailed pictures of your 5 speed conversion. I think it would really help out the 2GS community a lot. There's a lot of explanations of how to convert it but pictures are lacking.

Is there anything different about the SC300 clutch pedal assembly from Xcessive Manufacturing? It looks like the bracket is custom? I am curious as to how this will work out as far as pedal placement. The other swaps I have seen have the pedal way to the left or too close to the big bulky automatic brake pedal.

I have been thinking of using a clutch pedal set from Wilwood along with their Clutch Master Cylinder. It's small and would probably be easy to mount.

Keep us posted and good luck with the rest of the build!

Spec clutch

my flywheel has been resurfaced.

Another glamour shot. lol

Some stuff i've found for the 5spd conversion:
stock trans xmember will work without being drilled out if you use a jzx90 or jzx100 trans bushing.

XM's SC pedal placement is way off from where it needs to be, I am working with him on getting a good fitting pedal for the GS.

Any more pics of the car with those wheels? I am looking at going 17x9

And please do update us on the clutch pedal as I am getting closer to doing the 5spd in my GS4
