Maybe I just envision different usage, but for real reliability where you can reasonably trust the trans not to crap out, I think these figures are too high. I think the W55 is more like 300, the W58 ~400 (mine broke @ 450, not being abused), and the R154 ~550.

You need to read a lot. This site has your answers already. I would read before asking any more questions.

Unless he's captain spoon feed me in which case he can keep asking.

In short, this car is 18 years old....you are probably younger. Everything that can be done HAS been done already. It's just a matter of doing research. Carry on

It's fine, just search around. These things are more complicated than just buy this buy that and put it in the car. There's a lot of small details that are documented throughout other peoples builds in the forum. Look at the top right of the webpage and use the search function, read, and then come back with more specific Q's. Good luck man!

I’m going to get a 2jzgte from eBay as I can’t find any cheaper any where else the one I found on there was around 2400 that was the motor with the auto trans already attached and it comes with the ecu and maf as well I’m not exactly sure what else I need to make this work besides the tubing and intercooler but I did try to look I up and couldn’t find anything

450 WHP? What was the history of the trans? Original? I’m curious because I planned on using a w58 500whp planned build, maybe I will reconsider. I’m new here and I’m trying to read and research before posting too many questions. I’m starting to collect parts now, IS300 wagon manual swap if anyone can direct me to any existing posts? Good to be here, great info thanks all!
