Default Sc400 manual , Who has one ?

I sold my sc300 and was thinking about a sc400 with a manual swap , I bet the v8 would be nice matched with a manual trans.

Does any one have one here and are you happy with the performance?

How much better is it from the stock sc300 manual ?

RedPhoenix has one and from the videos he's put out it looks quite good.

There are several threads about this conversion. Since you're in Cali you may want to avoid doing it to an OBD2 or at least a VVT-i.

Performance-wise I don't think you can go wrong with a manual 400 unless you're looking for the horsepower a GTE swap will give you.

How did you blow 2 trans in 2 months ? How much are the W58 compared to the R154 ?

You mean the manual transmission will put down more power to the wheels? The engine doesn't gain 50 ft lbs of tq from a tranny swap..

^^Took all of 5 minutes and I didnt even use half the keywords that came to mind, and I even learned how to do the swap and whats needed, who has already done it, found the best rear gear ratio, video's, pictures, and feedback of the exact question you asked in your first post.

Oh the amazing power of the large read "search" button...

I would like to know if a ka 240 transmission would fit? They make an adapter for the 240.

I was wanting some new info from a current date , I did search but i was actually searching for any new members that have performed the swap.

You should get a badge and tailor a new uniform that say's SEARCH POLICE on back.
