I am in Az so cannot go to Tx for Swap on my 99. I need to verify how to get it through emissions b4 paying local shop to do it. Can you please give us detailed info or contact info of guy who did swap on tricking the computer so no CEL? The last guy who did this swap on 98+ was SOL when a tranny code registered for emissions

Same here as well.
If I ever go to the W58 route instead of the R154, I will be using this thread to follow up on even if my Sc300 is a non VVT-i 2jzge

Also congratulations with your baby.

^^^^ it's been a long time lol !

Wiring wise it's the same scenario when you do an R154 or W58 on 98-2000 SC300 , pull the solenoid out of the Auto trans and just plug them on the trans harness!

Off the subject a little, is the VVTi 3.26 a standard 8" ring and pinion? I'm looking for a higher gear for my Cressida 5-speed swap. BTW I did the swap myself, it was a lot of work, cudos to those who have done it.

Please post pictures. I enjoy seeing the interior of a manual swapped car with the 5 speed shifter in place of the auto shifter.

Any update on this!? Or has anyone else tried the swap!? I've been re-inspired to do this since I've gotten my new '99!
