i have my boy mario that fried his v160 at 6XX hp so your point is????

and do you by any chance know the price tag of a v160???

smh, you are better off with a argument saying "whats the point of dropping a domestic tranny in a import"

#lets get this thread back on topic here now who has the answer to cashflo's question?

V160's have grenaded in bpu cars. So your point is?
A miss shift is all it takes to kill a manual tranny.

Have you heard of a t56 holding 800+ hp stock? Didn't think so.

And yes I do know that v160's go for 3k plus. But think about it, once you collect all the special parts to adapt the t56 to the jz you will be well over 4k. At that price point why go with the t56? Your argument makes no sense ( no offense ).

This thread is on track I am just letting the guys know that the v160 is far superior. Btw cashflo asked a very broad question, what kind of answer do you expect?

And lets not start with the import/domestic rhetoric. I am currently swapping an lsx 4l80e into my sc400. So therefor I am not bias at all. Just telling it how it is.

If the t56 was actually a wise swap, don't you think more jz guys would be running them?

This thread should have ended a long time ago.

If they made an adaptor to bolt the v160 to the ls1 I would be going 6 speed instead of auto.

If you can fabricate the necessary supporting modifications for the T56 it would actually be a great idea.

What most people fail to realize is that on well modified cars you will eventually go thru a transmission or two (or three).

The part where the T56 starts sounding like a good idea is how much it costs to replace the broken component (in this case, the transmission). Once you have the necessary fabbed parts, it is much easier to find a good T56 transmission for a bargain of a price then it is to find a V160.

Just my two cents.

lmao... 3k is the price tag of a used v160 that probably been beaten on and rebuilt..
do your self a favor and call Toyota for the real price tag... how you going to say the v160 is superior for cashflo? do you know his power goal... smh head for all we know a w58 would do fine for him...

plus if you can afford a v160 then the issue about getting a mounting plate for it should be a walk in a park!!

i'm done, i'm never one to steer up conflict so with that being said cashflo do what ever makes you happy becasue at the end of the day your the only one that knows your power goal and how deep your pockets are.

The point of this thread is to investigate the feasibility of mounting up a T56 to a JZ motor. It is not a T56 VS. V160/R154 thread. Regardless of the financial or robustability or complexity debate, it is innovation. All the T56 bashing is going to kill the desire of innovating. The **** swinging contest needs to end!

I do plan on doing an LSx swap one of these days. I have no qualms about using a T56. Heck, does anybody contemplate a T56 with an LSx swap?

FEASIBLE
- Capable? yes.
- Logical ? No
- Suitable ? (financially? No - Power handling capabilities? maybe - ease of swap? No) so end result No.

i think 2 no's beat the one yes.


is it a good idea to bother with this? no
is it going to cost more? yes
is it sometihng thats commonly done? no.
are there possibly more problems to occur that no onelse will have answers to? yes

thats what your FEASIBILITY is asking..
so it IS a debate on the two transmissions.. for reasons of financially equitable. and robustability.

ie.
im going to install an axel from some car, that may or may not be able to handle as much power.. because its cheaper.. but i have to modify alot of other things to get it working.. which will cost alot, and cause more problems.

who the heck does that.

How does this happen? lol

On topic: T56 isn't so bad. I'd rather have a T56 than an R154. I don't think it is a worthwhile option for the 2JZ though. For people who need adapters regardless, like myself and the 1UZ crowd, it would definitely be a feasible option.

This thread is titled "2JZ + Tremec T56 ?????".
Go start a new thread titled "V160 vs. Tremec T56". Go debate over there.

Let's get this thread back on track.

R154's aren't so easy to come by nowadays and V160 are even harder to find. Good thread.... any updates much appreciated

I think some online stores have adapter plates for the GM transmissions not sure about t56 specific but thats a good place to start.
