so me and miamiIS300 are having a little arguement....he claims/and has shown me pictures of a boosted project IS completed in his buddys shop...instead of the usual V160...its running a g35 6 speed...miamiis300 claims its the new thing...and its the cheapest alternative to the V160 swap costing almost 3K$....i say no way...it cant be done..why would it be done...it only makes sense to fit toyota parts with toyota parts...why go thru all the extra work of fitting just to save a couple$$...well anyways im just asking have you ever heard of this b4 or have seen it in real life...is it really an alternative

Maybe it's me but if the tranny can hold the power reliably, custom parts aren't too expensive, and installation isn't too difficult then why not.

Your an idiot I never said nor have I shown you pictures your liar. I said it might be possible to stick a 6spd G35 tranny in a Is300 instead of doing the supra tranny. Get your story straight... You stated why should anyone try this since everyone and their mother just use the supra tranny. My thing was why not be different instead of following what everyone else does. hey if it work it's interesting to see if it will hold up and be a cheaper alternative to getting a supra tranny when you can get this one NEW for alot cheaper. This was my only point. I mean I hate to mess with your Holy grail of what you read except from what you actually experienced in life. But i have been in this a while and more interested in trying new things then being just another sheep. Like I said I might not go this route but it does interest me to find out more. I mean so far I seen a G35 tranny hold 600hp.

Yeah it's very interesting. I mean that was my whole point of the discussion. but it fell on deaf ears. If it hold and works without a problem why not have a cheaper alternative. Who cares if it don't says toyota on it. I mean who looks at your tranny anyways. Plus haven't people used Ford rear ends on chevys for a long time. If they can do why can't we. CAN'T WE JUST ALL GET ALONG... LOL

MiamiIs300, how about you chill out and quit the petty name calling. Maybe he misunderstood, seriously you just made yourself look pretty hot headed.
