Default Several questions regarding GS400/GS430 from 98-05

Hi guys I am hoping you could assist me with the following:

1.) Are there any common manual transmission swaps for these cars?

2.) What do they dyno bone stock?

3.) Do these cars have posi traction?

4.) What do these cars weigh?

Thanks

1. Yes

2. 240-260 RWHP

3. No, but there is Torsen LSD (Limited Slip Diff) most people upgrade to this since it came off the Supra Automatic car, you can get the whole "pumpkin" replaced. Also, there is the TRD LSD which has to be installed into the rear end.

4. GS400 (1998's weigh 3690 lbs, 1999-2000 weigh 3693 lbs)
GS430 (2001-2005 weighs 3715 lbs)

Most of the searches I have seen are T56 LSX swaps.

I'd like to know if there are any direct cost effective swaps that work with the stock GS430 engine.

Thanks
