Default 7mgte with a w58?

So my 1986 supra has been sitting in my garage with a blown motor for a while now and I am trying to figure out what to do with it. It died Halloween night and I have been without it since then. I have considered a 1jz swap but then I started pricing everything out... I found a turbo mk3 with an auto transmission in the classifieds and was wondering if my current w58 would work with the 7mgte if i swapped it over. Or if I could upgrade it enough to have it work. I know I'm going to put in a stronger clutch but wonder if it would even be worth it or just buy a r154. Money is kinda my main problem, minimum wage sucks...

A stronger pressure plate would be a good idea; A new OEM GE clutch plate and flywheel should serve fine (get the flywheel resurfaced, of course). The W58's rather nice with a conservative 7M-GTE as it's smoother shifting than the R154 and lighter... They'll hold 350 to 400RWHP pretty reliably as long as it's in good shape to begin with.
If something breaks or you need to contact a member of the administration please post HERE. Unless it's a private or administration matter please post it on the forum. It benefits no one else if car related questions aren't posted for future users and takes away from the time I'm able to spend helping on the rest of the forum.
