    removed front mud flaps, weather-tech floor mats, viper keyless entry. Next is 5100s!!
    Is it possible and affordable to swap a 6 speed manual tranny into my 07 pre runner auto? i really wanted a standard but couldn't find one in the area so i got an auto. now im wondering if i can just swap the standard in, or if its been done

    ALLEGED problems.. ALLEGED! I'm sticken to it. I need to look into it more, The pics I've seen aren't making sense to me. Why would the throw-out be riding the output housing? what? I need more pics. Besides if you were swapping you could do the steel repair thing.

    Anyone know if the camaro or CTS has the a problem? Any other cars using that tranny? To they make a 4wd version of the t56?

    Throwout bearing problem can be negated with a sleeve during 6Spd install.
    URD I believe makes one. The FJ guys know ALL about that issue and the 6 speed.


    I went from AC 6-sp to DCLB 5sp (only option), man to auto. I miss the manual soooo bad.
