    Gf has a 09 Is250, i've driven many times, I live on a slope. Nothing crazy, I always knew that the trans has a slow time to catch 1st so always hold break and wait for it to catch.

    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.

    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.
