The size of the gears in the R154 dwarf those in the W58. The main weaknesses bothered me too, so when I bought mine I just had it upgraded and rebuilt before getting it installed. It's just that...

I replaced my master cylinder and booster with factory SC parts and upgraded to MKIV TT front calipers about six months later. Even with correct bleeding there was a little play in the pedal. After...

There is a *mountain* of great concise info in this thread and I doubt I'd have even considered the possibility of using a ZF/Getrag 5-speed gearbox in the future had I not read it and the challenge...

^^ Very nice! When you've got it in and have some seat time I'd love to hear your impressions of drivability. I'm sure others would too.

^^ Awesome! OBD1 is certainly easier. As for the W58 I wouldn't trust it for long even at 400whp even with granny shifting. Maybe if you tuned the car to 300whp max or so until you can get an R154...

That is very good news! It's awful that they crashed it but at least you have it back and from the sound of things it will be repairable. Here's hoping you can work out a repair plan and save your...

I'm inclined to agree with you there. Once the front bearing retainer, 1st gear thrust washer and all the shift forks are replaced you have covered all the known weak points of these boxes. Well...

The OS Giken or Exedy twin plate pull-to-push clutch kits are supposed to be the best. I might try one down the road but $1,500+ to start is steep. Do they last as long as an organic face clutch?

Ali, I wasn't aware that the AR5 had an aluminum center section. That would affect the ultimate power holding, wouldn't it?

SJC2467 -- If Toyota still has the MKIV TT Auto and NA (yes those had an optional Torsen) available it will indeed not be cheap and might actually be an insane price. I do think it is the entire...

I was happy this evening when a box arrived in the mail. I have finally located a used TT fuel ECU connector. It cost me a spare fuel ECU but it's done.

The biggest difference independent of the housing or tripod versions is that the tail housing of all JDM Soarer R154's from Soarers and Chasers can use an OEM SC/MKIV W58 transmission mount and...

I've had seat time in the 2.0L and 2.2L S2000's and yeah, that car in particular was meant to have a close ratio 6-speed.

Any 92-96 SC300 5-speed can be converted into 90% of what a 97 5-speed has going for it.

I also think you should get the 98+ SC400. It's just a great all-rounder and the transmission is indeed...
