Where is the best place to find a automatic or manual transmission for a 2001 Lexus is300?

Pick n pull, they are pretty tough boxes behind a relatively weak power plant, I’d run a junkyard one with just a new filter and fresh fluid. If you’re manual swapping that’s another thing all together, and after much searching and research went with a Nissan cd009 from 2007, which is yet to be installed. The w55 and w58 and pretty weak, and the r154 is taxed out of being considerable . The junk yard w58s will probably have the wrong bellhousing unless it’s from an sc300 or mk4 Supra which you’re not gonna see in a salvage yard, and the bellhousing is very expensive.
