Hey dude I am kind of doing the same thing backwards - wanna put a 2UZ in a 1995 4Runner with the r150f manual trans. Did you have a lot of trouble doing this pairing or was it relatively simple? Iím wondering if Iíll need a different bell housing, if so which one, if you have any advice or tips for pairing the 2UZ with the r150 I could rlly use some help! Thanks. Hope youíre enjoying your build by the way!
Several ways of doing it.
If you want cheap easy and reliable, run the auto.
The average cost of a conversion kit is $2k
Akina Motor sports do a bell housing conversion that has a flywheel, throw out (Toyota Style) with fork and external slave to fit whichever transmission you have, make sure to check the input length.
XAT do a kit that adapts the UZ/A series bellhousing to the R series, again check your input length. Uses a concentric hydraulic slave.
very nicely machined but is equivalent money to the Akina.
Use an auto... bin the chain driven tcase. Torque converter is kinder to the trans and axle shafts and the auto negates the need for dual t cases if you want to crawl with it. Especially if you run the 5 speed A750E as fitted to the 100 series Land Turd and some Tundras, it will be lush on the street and good on fuel.
