So do we need PNC 15660 to attach to our existing unit, or do we need the whole ball of wax?

Would also want to fab some AN to o-ring adapters for the OEM hose mounts on the housing. Nice they...

I'm not that far behind. 115k now. Due for some work for sure, but everything is still functional.

I have done nothing with my gearbox but send a sample to Blackstone.

If you are doing HPDEs they're a great choice. Predictable, wear like iron, and let you use what the F delivers at a not too bad price.

Only someone who knows nothing about tires would accept a warranty claim on tires used at the track. Track wear is painfully obvious - shoulder blocks are shredded, not smooth, all tread blocks have...

Not on the F. On the wife's tC. They work well in a broad range of temperatures, wear a little better than PSS, and are more readily available at tire shops than PSS.

The key is, don't take a bottom sample. Let it run a few seconds first. I've taken samples from the filter housing and from the drain plug (when I was changing the filter at 5k miles). There no...

Dead on the money. If these are the seed gearboxes for remanufacturing, and they are up for sale, what does that say about how many rebuilt transmissions they've sold? Pretty small number.

I'm with Larry. Your Discount Tire might try to warranty them, but Michelin will reject the claim. I had a sidewall bubble in a PSS rear and got it replaced under warranty (no track mileage on it)....

It has been this way since 1994 when I wanted to mod my first Supra. Has not changed since despite the plethora of vendors claiming they were able to make substantive changes. They have all failed.

Do you know Reg Reimer at RCTS? He was a great resource to the Supra community, and would easily be able to recommend something more suitable to your application.

Really? Explain again?

Non-standard instruction set at the microcode ROM level - full custom CPU with no documentation available to the public.

14 ECUs must communicate.

No JTAG to access....

it's only a matter of time to see digital printing put works of art like this in the dustbin. Truly sad to see craftsmanship like this knowing full well its days are numbered.

I have to disagree. I've always thought they were the ugliest ducklings ever put on the IS-F. But to be honest, if they were 9.5" front and 10.5" rear, I'd run them all day long and smile.

The 350 and 250 are significantly lighter, so the spring rates should be lighter as well. It would all depend on what the next owner is expecting.

They will mechanically fit, but they won't be valved for the lighter cars. 250/350 owners would complain the ride is too stiff.

Besides that, I don't pay anyone for labor. Gearbox installs are pretty easy. It's the TCU initialization that's a real PITA.
