Supra 5 speed

Hi there,

this has probably been asked a million times before but i will ask again. I am wanting a 5 speed for my Xf ute so i can up the diff gears from 3.5/1 to 3.9/1. I was originaly thinking of using a 5 speed out of a later XF but am unsure how it will hold up. I HATE changing gearboxes although i have become quite good at it repacing the bw 4 speed too many times. So i would like something that will last.

Anyway back to point,

What i know so far is,
i will need,
Costom bellhousing (seen them secondhand somethimes)
Costom tail shaft
Supra 5 speed

What i dont know is,
What clutch would i use (very happy with the daikin i have now)
Is it a cable or hydrolic set up.
anything else i ahve missed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

Simon

Re: Supra 5 speed

A T5 would be easier. A Supra will use the existing clutch mechanism. I would not go any lower than 3.5 with a 4.1, they usually go better with a taller diff. Most are happy with a 3.23.

Re: Supra 5 speed

I'd be inclined to have your existing bellhousing modified.
I am currently putting a 253 into a Nissan ute, with a 6cyl Falcon T5 behind it I will be modifying the 253 bellhousing - shortening and changing bolt pattern for gearbox. As many gearboxes are roughly the same length you should find your old tailshaft will fit - provided the yoke fits the box!
In any case it's about $150 to have a tailshaft modified and roughly the same to do the bellhousing.

I would rather keep the 3.5 diff i have at the moment as i have already put it into the ute. I dont think the price difference between a t5 and a supra would be all that much different (maybe $400 ) with something stronger i wouldnt have to repace the box, which although is only a days work gives me the utter sh*ts

I think i will just look around for bits and pieces and if it takes me 6months to get everything together i think it will be worth the wait.

Yeah thanx for that, i might look around a few of the machine shops and see what they can do with the original bellhousing and tail shaft. Might save a bit of time and $$$ in the long run.

Thanks guys

Re: Supra 5 speed

they might be cheaper cause my brother inlaw was goin to fit a supra 5 speed to his 72 capri and it was goin to cost him about 2000 for the box where as i only paid 750 for my T5 which included everything for auto to manual conversion
