-72 240z 1UZ-FE/R154 conversion
Posted 11 January 2011 - 03:04 PM
It has been restored since 2005, and has been used on the street for a little more than a year with the original L24 inside. So, when the winter knocked on the door, the Z was put in the garage and the project started.

Had to back the car out of the garage to turn it after the snow came, and was barely able to get it back in:) -Very slippery!

...and the UZ were joined with the transmission and lifted into the car.
So then I have to spend some time to measure and align everything, before I start fabricate engine and transmission mounts....

Is this a W58 transmission? I have the R154 from a Supra mk3 turbo, but I don't got this shifter-extension on mine. I will need an extension to get the shifter 15-16cm further back...

In regards to the transmission that I have used, yes, it is a W58 transmission that came out of a JZA80 model non turbo supra. I think I remember seeing someone that said they modified the remote shifter to be used on a R154, although I can't be sure on this. If I do find the link I'll post it up.
If you don't already know about it take a look at the site toyodiy.com as there are full parts listings that you can use.

I was forgetting that you can already get a R154 box with a remote shifter from a soarer, and I found this in another thread
The JZA80 remote is only for the W58 or V160, not the R154.
The JZZ30 early model's R154 is very similar to the JZA70 but the shifter is about 20mm further back.
The late model JZZ30 has a full remote shifter.
The JZX90 has a full remote shifter, but I'm not sure if its identical to the JZZ30's
The JZX100 has a full remote shifter, but its not bolt on compatible with the early R154's.
You could probably use toyodiy.com to check the part numbers between an r154 remote shifter and w58 to see if they are the same (in case one might be easier than the other for you to get). If you search on Soarer Central or ALSC (Australian Lexus Soarer Club) there is quite a bit of information about manual conversions that those guys do, which might be useful.
