Default loc's automatic to manual conversion!!!!

Im about to start the process but i kinda want to do some more research on top of my other research. I have a couple more questions. could i bolt up the r-154(turbo) trans to the n/a engine? would i have to splice wires and shit or will the automatic wires work for the manual? if someone could explain how to put in the clucth in some easy to understand instructions? How do i take off the drive shaft? Thanks for the help and i will being taking detailed pics and notes and all that good stuff.

You'll need quite a bit to do this. Not just the R154. You'll need the pedals, both brake and clutch, as the brake on the auto is too big. Clutch master cylinder, all the lines and cables, I don't know all of it, but there's a list somewhere. Also the tach won't work without some soldering work.

Here's a link of the tach changes that need to be done. Where I got it from was from this link

He used to have auto to manual, but the link doesn't work anymore.

tachometer, tells you engine RPM, should have one to the left of your speedometer.

You should be able to get the PCB from the manual supra, the board I linked with all the resistors.

youll also need the r154 bellhousing, driveshaft, i think starter motor but im not sure, maybe not, clutch master/slave cylinders, a hydraulic line for the clutch, and a clutch kit with pressure plate. Then im still not sure cause i havent started the conversion yet.

It depends on if yu get new or used parts, and whatnot, I figured 1200 ish for mine, with used trans and other parts, and a brand new flywheel, clutch kit and aluminum driveshaft
