So much money invested in this swap, every single item is brand new. I laughed at how you had all those parts on your bright white carpet. There's never a time that you can lay a differential or transmission on white carpet and not ruin it!

Curious did you remove the collar off the shifter to get the boot over it? Or did you slip the boot over the collar with it on?

Great job man! I'm sure your intending on keeping your car forever but if you ever sold it you could ask MKIV TT Supra prices.

D,

I am glad you liked the trans! glad i was also able to help you .

The guys before me said it all !! there is nothing left ofr me to say.

Like you said you don't have to bang the trans tunnel, and the 6speed crossmember is what you need .

Shifter will hit the back of the shifter boot if you use the new style shifter , I used the 93-94 shifter on my old car and it worked and never hit the bezel.

I am going to get some part numbers from you in the next couple days. I need the part number for the heat insulator.

What's wrong with the black floormats?
