He did say he had over 200+k miles on tranny. That's a lot of mileage, I think any transmisson is about due to failure with that much mileage. And then you put boost behind it. V160 might hang in there but a W58 or R154, will give up the ghost.

I remember seeing a thread on IPT on Supra Forums. It was started by a relatively well-known member there, Silver Orchid SP60.

I call IPT on Wednesday and ask about their Raybestos blue plate rebuild and it seems to do the job. I all ready have a stronger trans lined up, its just not ready yet. I just want to rebuild my current one to hold on the dyno so I can get a good tune. I let IPT know that I HAVE to have the parts overnight. Anything past Friday wouldn't work because I know John is leaving for Maui on Monday. He insures me that if I call him before 9:30am his time on Thursday he can get the kit together and have it out in time for overnight shipping. So I wake up at 2:30 am or so and make the call. I then call him later on that day to insure the kit went out and ask for tracking info. He assures me that the kit will arrive Friday. He didnt have a tracking number because the UPS track comes late and the shipping people are gone. So Friday I take off work to wait for the package. Doesn't come. I call IPT and the person tells me that the shipping people are gone for the day but he will go to their computer, get the info and call me back in 15 minutes. I wait an hour and no call back. I call him back but no one answers, gone for the day. I call back Monday and get a tracking number. Apparently there were 2 packages sent, one actually went out on Friday and not Thursday. I was still charged over night for the package that went out on Friday even though it wasnt to be delivered till Monday which was too late. I track the other package and find that it was rescheduled for delivery 2 times. IPT had put the wrong address for delivery. Not only was the name of the street spelled wrong, the zip was wrong and even the house number was wrong. So I have to take off again Monday to get delivery of the small package, just one steel that was probably forgotten. Then I had to go to UPS to pick up the large package so they wouldnt try to deliver it again on Tues. By this time I am fed up. John is gone to Maui and I cant tune. So, I call IPT and tell them I want to return the item. He tells me that I can't, and that his sales person told him that the address on there is what I TOLD HIM ON THE PHONE. So apparently I paid 114 dollars for overnight shipping and then told the sales person the wrong address. Not only are both shipping labels wrong, the receipt that they sent me clearly says in the AVS resp section that the "Neither address nor zip matches". Plus the customer information has the same wrong address. Hell, they even misspelled Honolulu as HONALULU but still stated that I basically dont know my own address. I have lived here 16 years and ship **** here constantly. I dont even pronounce my street name, I spell it. IPT still refuses to acknowledge there sales person made a mistake even with all the evidence I have to the contrary! Will never order from there again.
I sell jdm motors where i work and the w58 is a great tranny it shifts way smoother than r154. Its good for no more than 500 hp. i have several customers with these tranny's in there car with 300 to 500hp and they are super happy. If you add the lsd diff its game over you will have a good sold running car. if your look for more hp then that i would get the r154. but realistically cars with over 500hp as a daily driver aren’t that common.
