AWESOME, DUDE!! I am so happy to hear that you've finished it and are driving it around! Loooooooong time coming, lol. Pretty fun to drive this truck with a stick, huh? :D

Congrats, and welcome to the club!

Jeff

PS: I take it the ECU connections went OK, and you don't have any CELs?

First off, I want to say this is the most helpful thread.

Second, I have a question. I have a excab 2.7l I am swapping my auto transmission for a 5sp. Do I need a different transmission dust shield for the manual transmission(W59)?

Transmission dust shield? Do you mean the bell housing? Something else? If it's bell housing, yes, you'll need one for a manual trans. I'm blanking on what you mean by "dust shield," so maybe post a pic? Sorry.

IIRC, I was able to reuse that part when I did my conversion on my 3.4 V6. I don't think that part changes between AT and MT. Maybe someone with a 2.7 will weigh in?

x2 I also reused mine during my swap. If the bell housing bolts up the same I don't see why Toyota would make a different cover.

I have.. had... A 2.7. The cover is the same from the AT to the MT. Im now running (almost) a V shaped dual 4 cyl backed by a 3.4L trans and tcase

If you swap your ECU and put one in from a manual will that change your millage reading? Don't want to swap a ECU with High millage into a low mile truck.

That's a very reasonable question.

I didn't notice any mileage change following my ECU swap, but that didn't even occur to me until you asked this question. It's possible the ECU I swapped had similar mileage to my old one, but I think the memory for the odometer lives with the speedo/gauge cluster, not the ECU. It 's a good question.
