By bracket do you mean the actual transmission mount? Look to purchase a solstice one or a more recent Polaris Slingshot one. As far as the crossmember you can PM member Curran.

Curran is your man. Brandon made a really nice product...unsure if he is still selling it now though. I got mine from him on eBay.

PM him. He makes them in batches and puts them up in ebay. I would not know about the automatic transmission crossmember.

The reverse light wires are in the auto-transmission harness connection I believe. You need to pull the wires from the connector and wire them to the reverse switch in the tranny.

I think I used the auto sensor but it's been a couple years. The sensor that came with the transmission will work too though the pulses off the AR-5 don't really match the pulses the auto puts out.

You kind of limit yourself to max HP of that amount -500- with the w58 setup. I use an ACT extreme PP and the highest rated full face clutch disc in mine. I think ACT said it would hold ~450tq. I’m running a BWs362sxe, ID1050x, and about 16psi, and I’ve never slipped the clutch. I did blow out my spark and had to go COP. I could probably turn the boost up, and slip the clutch but I am satisfied where it’s at. The only thing I want to do now is maybe a set of GSC S1 cams and springs, and I’ve got a flex fuel sensor I need to plumb in. I drive this thing daily, so 500hp is good for me.


TL;DR: If you ever plan on >500HP, I’d advise the r154 route, or a multiplate set up. Less than 500, W58 is sufficient.

Just finishing up my AR5 swap, but I have a question,

Did anyone else have their Driftmotion driveshaft flange contact the JZX110 shifter housing? 3 of the 4 corners clear, but the one corner makes contact on the housing. See attached picture. And yes that's tape keeping water out of my cabin.

Not a problem, I needed to pull the housing off to make more room for the flange adapter anyway.

Just curious as I don't think I read anywhere about the driveshaft making contact, only the flange adapter being close. My best guess is the flange barely passed QC and is just within the +/- size tolerance haha.

I didn't have that adapter but I had an issue with my adapter from DSS for my CV prop. It was just a generic GM adapter so it wasn't necessarily meant for this application unlike yours. I had it turned down by a shop.

I think I remember people on facebook complaining about the same type of interference though from the drift motion adapter.
