I am looking for the required parts to install the getrag 6seep found in the mk4 supra into the is300 chassis.

Questions include....

What cross member?

What drive shaft?

Flywheel & clutch?

How well does it mount up to the shifter hole?

Are there starter problems?

I am willing to go it alone and build the custom parts, but it would be allot easier to just get the info from those who know.

This thread is meant top be purely a educational source for the getrag 6 speed conversion.
I would prefer not to discuss other trans swaps in this thread in an attempt to keep it on topic and easy to understand.

Thanks for any info you may be able to contribute.

What do you mean by what cross member?

You have to get a custom driveshaft made.

MKIV Flywheel, clutch, pressure plate, slave cylinder.

You will have to shorten the shifter assembly 2" have a fabrication shop do it for you.

Tranny mounts up directly to engine, you will need to get a custom rear tranny mount made. starter works just fine.

You also have to have the Tranny Tunnel modified as Mo there has told me. I think he said that the IS tunnel is too small for a v160, so they have some cutting to do.


And please search next time, as this is one of the most popular subjects in this forum :)

Honestly I did search.
I came up with a bunch of threads that went off topic with in the first page.
They either ended up debating on why one would want to do the swap or how much it would cost. Or trying to talk others into using a different trans, ect...
None I read had any comprehensive factual information.
maybe it was just the key words I used?

I would be more than willing to read a previous thread with the information I am looking for.

About the drive shaft...

I assume you have to use the supra front section and the IS rear section?
Cut and welded just after the trans?

How tight is the clearance for the tunnel?
Can it be beaten into shape with a ball peen hammer, or must it be cut and re welded?

Tranny tunnel does not need to be modified, I do not recall ever mentioning that.

I think he is trying to deter people from trying this themselves. This is not a DIY project by any means. If you don't have the proper experience, you will not complete the project.

Do I owe you anything? (besides a warning for spouting off at the mouth and wasting bandwidth?)

How about this, you make me give you the info you think I should ...

--would you recommend any tranny tunnel hammering just to avoid the tranny from hitting when the motor is torque-ing around?


and would you recommend modifying our stock is300 shifter, or modify and MKIV one?

man, i hope someone can make a nice sticky on this, as this subject is brought up so many times and it seems as we still don't have definite answers to many of the same questions ask... ... :)

I never said you owe me anything, I just said basically this site is for helping one another and sharing information. But if you feel you must owe someone something before you give them something in return that’s your own selfish ways I guess...

I’m done now so if you really feel like giving me another warning for "spouting off at the mouth and wasting bandwidth" go head I just wanted to defend what I said in front of everyone and say I’m sorry to the thread starter for this!

you need to use the mkiv shifter. i ordered one for a '94, they changed lengths over the years. you need this one due to the lockout reverse.
go for the longest shifter possible. from my recollection it was the 93.5-94 that had the longest, but there is a note(a wiser note) that the 96-98 was the longest.... hmmm.

yes, buy corn flakes and sell the pork bellies.
