It may bolt on to your bellhousing but you need custom tranny mounts and other stuff so NO it is not a direct bolt on...But i know of someone who did a V160 swap in his garage...

GS 400/430 Rear end are used for the lower gearing (3.27?)...Its not a DIY project unless you have bad ass fabricator/welder skills like Jesse James...


Since you are asking these questions, I hope that you arnt planning to DIY, and are planning on hiring somebody with a reputation like SRT or PFS as most people who have these mods are done by them...You realize this aint gonna be cheap either...You probably could buy a used IS for around what its gonna cost to do a V160/GS 430 rear swap...lol

This has been covered, please search. To answer the original question....no, there is nothing "bolt on" with the v160 swap. It requires a lot of modifications.
