Taco 6 speed onto 2F?
 
A CL ad for a used '07 Taco 6 speed manual transmission said that the seller was going to put it into an FJ40, but changed his plans.

Is it even close to possible to fit a new Toyota trans like that up against a 2F? Has anyone ever dummied up this combo to see if it's possible?

maybe that's why he's selling it...

:D

The current gen Tacoma uses one of two stick shifts, the R155 and the RA60.

The R155 is a 5-speed that continues the lineage of the R150 and R151, so I assume that existing bellhousings that adapt engine-to-tranny would work with it. But AFAIK this is only used on the 2TR-FE (4 cylinder) Tacoma. The first gen Taco used the W59 on the 3RZ, so Toyota is jumping back and forth it seems between the W and R series transmissions on the 4 cylinder. The earlier gens used the W56 with the exception of the R151F on the turbo 22R-TE. The V6 Hilux used the R150F.

The 6-speed is the RA60, which I know nothing much about. It obviously has the same bellhousing pattern as the A750 since they both bolt to the 1GR-FE. Not sure what else in the world might use this tranny, but surely it must be bolted to something else.

I think what most people are trying is the V160 or V161 6-speed from the Supra, since this has been around longer than the RA60 and RA61. That means there might be a bellhousing out there, either aftermarket or Toyota, that gets the right pattern. But that might be to mate it to something like a 1/2/3UZ-FE, which probably does not help get to a 2F. However if you want to put a 6-speed in a 100 series Cruiser, that's your ticket. The Supra V8 used the 2UZ I think.

Thanks Dave - good info.

Some folks are putting a 4.0 in the 40's. I know one person who is doing just that, maybe they decided to go with an auto tranny or ???

The 4.0 swap is starting to pop up more and more in older trucks, I know I would love one in my 4Runner.

I would love to do a 4.0 swap into my 3rd gen! the power difference is substantially noticeable!

Small correction. The Supra never had a V8 stock, always the straight 6. There are guys swapping them in which is what you'll find the adapters for.

The 1UZ came in the Lexus LS400 and SC400.

That's right, it was my mistake. The Supra that has the UZ 'stock' are the race-prepped GT500 ones and those use/used a 3UZ.
