    I’m doing an R154 swap and I need the measurement from the output shaft to the stock auto lsd differential. Does anyone happen to know this measurement. I’d rather not wait until I have the trans in and have to wait on the driveshaft.

    Hello all. I am currently running into this issue with my manual swapped 01 IS300. I am running an ATEMU without the resistors. The car runs amazing until it throws a P0500 code. Once it throws this code I lose a lot of throttle response and the car will hesitate for a second if I mash the...

    Yes I have searched this, but many of the threads I had found already have a w55 that they blew up before doing this swap, and just swap that rear onto the w58, and use the w55 driveshaft, which skips the scenario where you don’t have a w55 trans already. Hi all, I have been on this page for a...

    Does the W56 W57 and W58 fit the 2JZGE ? Which ones are relatively cheaper and can handle good hp and torque? Is J160 a good option for 400whp IS300 Are there any other alternatives, I heard a lot about R154 and V160. Thanks in advance.

    So I have a 2002 is300 it's auto and I recently bought two w59 transmissions. (killer deal) i4 have heard a 2jz/w58 bellhousing will bolt up and should be the same thing basically just different gear ratios. Also the shifter housing is in a different spot. Would anyone be able to help me out...

    So I am wanting to use a cube speed shifter with the 90 degree bend in it for my w58. I was wondering what rubber boot and shift boot i could use that would fit properly? Because I know i am going to have to cut a bit of the shifter tunnel out because the shifter housing will sit too close to...

    Theres a W58 from a sc300 with a remote shifter, so if I just change out the remote shifter with a correct tailhousing like one from xcessive manufacturing, would that work? And also be in the correct shifter position?

    So I plan to do a automatic to manual W58 swap, but ive been looking on peoples swaps and I notice that the shifter is not centered with the is300 shifter area, it looks too far forwards. Is there any way to prevent this? Does the stock manual is300 plastic center piece help? Let me know.

    So I was wondering if the parts for a W55 manual swap and W58 manual swap are the same. Besides the transmission obviously, but everything else would it be the same basically? Like the manual drivetrain, can one be used for both vis versa? Let me know thank you.

    Hi all, recently joined this forum and have some questions about the manual swap I'm currently piecing together for my RHD Australian delivered is300. We never got a RHD manual is300 here so there is no option for a manual ECU when I do my swap. My question is; would a LHD manual ECU possibly...

    Hey guys! New to the IS community and cars in general so go easy on me. Picking up my first project, a 2001 is300 that was recently swapped to a w58 MT. To my understanding, the car thinks it’s in park and makes the car run poorly with the swap. I picked up a 2jz-ge M/T ecu off facebook...
