I think the original trans Rajj got was the side mount. The new tail shaft is from the “correct for is300” transmission...is how I take it. I’d still like to see somebody make one of those newer transmission work in our cars. I’ve never had one in front of me, but it doesn’t look super hard.

Anyhow. Try www.hollanderparts.com for the piece you’re missing.

Correct. LKQ sent me an 06 trans but apparently some 06 transmissions have the side mount. Well that’s what I was told by them. Anyways, the tail housing did not come with that piece so now I’m stuck trying to find one. And I’m not sure the side mount will work due to clearances. Very tight in the tunnel but then again my trans might not have been at the correct height.

So the part that I’m looking for. Does anyone have a trans they could take measurements of the piece so I can make one?

Reverse is easy, there’s a plug on the AR5 that looks like a 1” nut filled with epoxy and has two wires potted in the epoxy. You just splice the IS300 reverse wires into them.

Cruise probably won’t work without a manual ecu. It requires all the throttle sensors - Apps1&2, tps1&2, and the dbw controls to function. Do you have any CEL’s? How about your VSS, is it working?

VSS is working surprisingly. Must be wired differently on these cars. Yea I figured reverse out. I’ve got a manual ECU but didn’t know if there was a way to do it with the auto ecu still in place. Yes I have CELs but I haven’t checked them yet. Trying to get everything cleaned up.
