Cheaper to just order parts direct from Toyota.

What about the driveshaft? I'm assuming that the auto trans A340 driveshaft won't work, or will it? If it does, then awesome because I can save $300-400 on the swap I'm about to do

Cool. Now add the fixes for cruise control, power seat/tilt memory, O/D off light flashing, backup lights, and neutral safety bypass.

You need at least the front half of the 5spd driveshaft - at least for the W-58, dunno on the R-154.

I have been chasing the overheating, and doing body work, and fixing the POS Ford, so no interest in the other issues. I know how to fix the seat\tilt memory, but the cruise control still eludes me.

EDIT: Overheated not fixed, but has been compensated for with a 3 row Megan Racing radiator. Already had a new OEM radiator in there. What a waste to toss it...

Aren't a new differential and ECU also needed for the manual to auto swap?

My speedo stayed accurate - don't know why. ECU is not needed, but it's nice to not see the OD OFF light not flashing. An ECU is "needed" about as much as a 5 speed cluster.

The only reason to swap the differential would be for matching factory ratios. I still have my auto diff which I assume is original since my car was unmolested when I bought it.
