Ask yourself if you really want tire chirping upshifts at 10% throttle and relatively soft shifts at full throttle- I sure don't. I sell parts with full tech support to swap these transmissions into Dodges and Fordcummins conversion trucks, so if you are interested read more about it. Many non-stock combinations are possible. There are fuse panels inside the engine bay and under the dash as well, that you will need to make this swap work. A not so related question - did Toyota shorten the final drive for 9th gen C59? Toyota is definitely harder - as far as wiring goes. I'm only most of the way across the country from you, but I know someone who might be moving this way soon who currently lives in Pennsylvania.
I'm sure I'll find more damaged parts once I get past this point. Even if that was better, the spacing is wider than other transmissions, so accelerating would still be more choppy and less efficient than it could be. Looks like I'll have to stay with it. I would have bought a few more tools to replace it myself, but family vehemently insists that I pay a shop for the job. To start off with engine, transaxle, ecm, and strands of wiring from the engine bay - even with the factory electrical service manual in hand, is a pretty convoluted process trying to match up the wiring to where you need it, and almost invariably, some important fuse block or junction will be missing. I think my manual tranny junkyard unit from a 2001 ground itself to death. The transfer case cost is based on an estimate of what it would cost to send in your Ford t-case to a custom shop and have a reman hybrid t-case built for you.
However, the aftermarket has kept pace, and restoration specialists can offer complete clutch linkage kits for swapping a stick where an automatic once lived. Urethane stiffness from soft for the street to solid for the track is available. Aftermarket solid versions are available, but it has been our experience that these pieces are best left to the drag race-only crowd. I recently realized that the motor in the Corolla, matrix, vibe, and prius? As those can be adapted to almost any use, many can be bought in different form factors, designs as well. I need to start collecting parts now if I am to make it to the track again this year. If you are building serious power under the hood of an older truck you should add more for a transfer case upgrade swap too.
Could be that my clutch is not disengaging fully when depressed. I'd want to get everything from the same car, rather than take my chances with an ebay harness which maybe won't match up. Because the basic vehicles were seen as anything from pedestrian econo-sedans to all-out racers, the availability of transmissions was prolific, to say the least. I would not recommend using either of those transmissions in stock form behind even a mildly turned up Cummins diesel. If I manage to pull this off I'll document and post up the swap here on 'Mud, I just need to get some of the general details worked out before I start buying parts. You can find more info on his site - He is also a member on this forum as well, but probably easier to ping on him from his site. Tweak and he says he can make me a custom harness, so that's a big relief! I'd double check before you get too far along on this project.
Oh, and be aware that the auto versions are much slower than the manuals. I'll want to look into this more. The result is often broken mount ears on four speed cases or completely fractured case assemblies on automatics. Most manual trans swaps are fairly straightforward, be very careful to do your homework. Gear ratios for this transmission.
Can my little 3 speed automatic take 200whp? Also, I see that a return-less in-tank fuel pump is used. Remember, the need for close ratio spacing in diesel trucks is the reason why most semi- trucks have 9-18 gears! If you have tall tires and high gearing you will be stuck starting out in first gear at every stop light, or slipping the clutch excessively in second- and that is a nightmare that is just as bad as living with poor automatic trans tuning. A not so related question - did Toyota shorten the final drive for 9th gen C59? I read about a that mentions going for a 98-02 C59 for the tall final drive. When considering swapping a manual trans in your truck to replace an automatic, or even putting a lift kit and tall tires on your manual trans truck, beware of gear ratio drawbacks. If the two ratios are similar, a higher axle ratio can be used to idealize the drivetrain efficiency.
The result is often broken mount ears on four speed cases or completely fractured case assemblies on automatics. Band adjustments are necessary to keep them from burning up, line pressure control is poor, and the filter to valve body connection was designed in the 1960's, depending on two or three tiny screws to hold it on. The 9th generation Corollas 2003-2008 turn over about 3000-3500 at the same speeds. If you get the tune wrong you might damage your engine. Gear ratios for this transmission. When adapted to a Cummins, it is often possible to bolt up a gas version 4R100 case to your existing adapter plate, however I definitely would not recommend replacing a 5R110 with a stock gas version 4R100.
A not so related question - did Toyota shorten the final drive for 9th gen C59? The Corolla's setup is basically all self-contained: fuel pump, regulator, fuel filter, pickup, float, etc. Mark At that engine speed, you are better served going after the 2003+ model years. Gear ratios for this transmission. Due to gearing, I'll be turning 3700 rpm at highway speed. Could make a sway that is exceptionally difficult to one that is quite doable. No custom work or fabrication is required since all of the critical swap parts are readily available.
I'll want to look into this more. If using a stock header and engine has air injection, header must have air injection. Allison ® 1000 Allison ® 5 speed Ratios 1st - 3. As the connections are all made to the gas tank itself and a major headache for anyone trying to mod this setup. Gear ratios for this transmission. One would expect to see a lower reverse ratio with the low 1st gear as well, but it is not as low as it should be.
