Was there ever a 2WD 5speed transmission offered to work with the 3.4L V6? If so, what platform was it out of? I can find 4WD 5speed manuals all day long for cheap but can't find anything for a 5speed setup.

What about running an older pickup 3.0L V6 2WD transmission behind the 3.4L in a tacoma. Any down side to that? I think the slave cylinder for the clutch is on the wrong side but should be good to go other then that I'd think which isn't a big deal.

The R150 transmission is used with lots of drivetrain combos. R150 is the 2WD 5sp transmission used behind the 3.4L in a Tacoma. The R150F is used in the 4WD models. Same basic R150 transmission, just different output shafts and tail housings depending on the drivetrain behind it.

Thank you for the info! I looked quite a bit yesterday and it looked like the R150 is what I wanted as you said but all the R150's that I found were claimed to be 4WD yet didn't have the "F" designation at the end.

The one you just linked on ebay, that's out of a pretacoma pickup right? So the slave cylinder will be on the opposite side correct? I don't think this will be a big deal for what I've got going on but just want to verify. If I remember right and now wish I'd done more documentation of my swap... I put a 3.4L into my '89 that was OE with a 3.0, manual 2wd. The 3.4L mated right up to the 3.0 manual trans but I think I put a 3.4L clutch kit in it with the 3.0 throwout bearing.

So, my thought is on this '04 tacoma we're building I can put in an older pickup 5 speed manual combined with a 3.4L clutch but a 3.0 throwout bearing also. Then I just need to route the clutch line to the opposite side.

This might be a dumb question but what's the advantage of that? If it's just so that the slave cylinder is on the same side I don't think that's going to be much of an issue cause I've got to re-plumb the brake lines from inside the cab since I'm doing away with power brakes and ABS and also am converting from auto to manual at the same time so a line will need plumbed from the clutch master in the cab to the slave no matter what anyways. Factory type lines aren't going to work in this case.

bumping an older thread, but where is the best place to find R150 tranny's at?

Car-part dot com is a good place to search for parts local to your area. I have bought a few things using that site a locator tool.

95.5-04 tacoma 2wd x-cabs were available with a v6/2wd/5spd, also the 1st gen 4x2 v6 5spd tundra's had the same transmission.
The older trucks 88-95 was also available and the guys above posted the correct info. You need to use a 3vze throwout bearing...
