    hey im new to the forum, i was wondering how difficult it would be to swap from an auto to a 5 speed manual. is the 2.7 5 speed manual tranny different from the 3.4 5 speed? what would i need other then the transmission? how much do you think it would cost? help/ tips are appreciated, thanks.:D

    You would need a manny tranny ECU other wise you're going to get a shit ton of transmission codes. Yes the two trannies are different.

    You would need the clutch pedal, clutch cylinder, clutch pedal switch, wiring harness (could possibly be home fabbed), ECU for the manny tranny, transfer case (if 4x4), drive shaft (both front and rear possibly), and a lot of time. I probably missed some things in there.

    ARB bumper, warn 9.5 winch. carbon fiber hood. Leer top with thule racks and MOAB from thule. Electric fans, blue sea fuse block, Sony dvd Head unit, Xm tuner and HD tuner. New carpet and new racing seats. ( other half doesnt like them i think). Nwor springs and adjustable coil overs. Sky jacker rear shocks. Slot and drilled rotors. Engine Titanium ceramic coated headers, no cat, jba cat back. URD Rear Sensor Simulator. Leds all around and inside cab and HID H4 hi/lo beams.
    You would have to change out the fly wheel to a heavier one for a clutch. You would have to do all the Hydraulic work and lines.

    Ecm i was thinking about that. I did looked at the wiring diagram you have a few things you would have to disable also to make it work. You dont send power back to the manual ecm that power was not to be on that line.

    I cant remember off the top of my head but i think you have to change drive shafts also. Auto transmission i believe is longer than the manual one or vise versa cant remember.

    My brother and I did it to my 86 Turbo 4Runner, but that was before all the computer stuff. It wasn't all that bad. It took a full weekend to do it, once we got all the parts together. We used a tranny from a '92 V6 p/u.

    Parts list (partial):
    tranny
    ECU
    pedal assembly
    shifter(s) (4x4)

    This is all stuff you could get from a pick-n-pull...

    Get a V6 tranny if you choose to do it. At least back when I did mine, the 4cyls had fewer splines on the shaft than the V6's. mine was a turbo, so it had the same tranny as the v6's. Not sure about today's trannies, but I'd assume it's the same.

    Yes you will be able to clear 33s with the spacer lift. The lift in the link you posted is a good lift, it will be about 3" of lift and a lot of people run that setup. I have the Toytec Ultimate Lift Kit version of it and I really like it.
