I don't think an auto glass shop is considered an essential business.....



 :dunno:


That may be true in some states?

However, here in Arizona, I believe auto glass repair/replace is considered an essential business.  :dunno:

Transmission/Clutch / Re: 1998 T100 MANUAL to AUTOMATIC swap

I did the exact opposite of you, swapped a 5-speed into my '99 4runner.
I will tell you right now going from Auto to Manual is easy, going from Manual to Auto will be tough.

The manual transmission you have in your T100 is an R150F, the R151 only came on the 22RE Turbos. The A340F will bolt up no problem. The transfer cases don't need to be swapped, all 5VZ transfer cases are swappable.

The R150F is ~1.25" shorter than the A340F (depending on the year). If there is enough travel in your slip joint in your driveshaft you won't need to find another driveshaft.

Yes you absolutely need the computer from an Auto. This will be the hard part, finding the correct computer and wiring the Auto transmission properly. There are 4 or 5 electrical connectors that need to be hooked up. The easiest thing to do is to find a wiring harness and swap harnesses with your truck. Then you need to swap your radiator to run the transmission fluid cooler lines (or make a transmission fluid cooler of your own). You'll need to plug the hole where the clutch goes through the firewall, and you'll need to plug the hole in the center console (and I want to say the Autos in the T100s were column shift so you need all those parts, but I could be wrong). It'd be a lot of work.

...

Out of curiosity, why would you want to switch from Manual to Auto? Most guys (including myself) prefer a manual (hens why I did the swap). If you want an Auto T100 have you considered buying one and selling yours?

Transmission/Clutch / 1998 T100 MANUAL to AUTOMATIC swap

Hello all, I've been trolling the forum for awhile and just now registering. Lot's of good info, thanks for what y'all do.


Anyways, I've searched for this trans swap and I don't see anyone talking about the computer or drive shafts... or have completed projects

I have a 98 4x4 T with I believe the R151 and picked up an A340 from a 97 4x4 4runner. I'm in the middle of a move to Arizona and the A340 is in storage out of state so I cant put  eyes on it.

It appears the A340 will bolt up, but I may have to swap the T-case, does that sound right?

Do I need to get a computer from an auto truck? Will both Dshafts work (I know this is easily remedied if not)?

Thanks in advance

Like a 3sge? 185 hp. That's only 27hp melee than a 3rz. With his methods of madness he could easily turbo a 3rz and make 300hp.

Now a supercharged 1gr would be sweet in my book.

Look into the BEAMS engine out of the Toyota Altezza from Japan.  They are 4 cylinder and can be found with a 6 speed manual trans and have close to 200 hp.  Plus, they are pretty sexy looking for a 4cyl.

So, the rearview mirror won't stay in the slot.  Is there some type of clip or something I'm missing?  It looks like it was glued once upon a time.  If this is serviceable what are y'all doing for replacements/upgrades?  Thanks!

Drive to a local auto glass shop, they will know how to fix it.

Gnarls.
