Ok, After looking all night long for help with a tranny swap I couldn't find what I wanted. I have a 98 Taco 2.7L Stock SR5 4X4 with the 5 speed MT. I found people looking for lower gear stuff. I'm not looking to crawl, I'm looking to race! Any help?


P.S. I would be happy, for a while, by just switching out that 5th gear, any ideas?

I don't know what you're asking exactly, does your current tranny not work? If you're just looking for a higher top speed change your gearing out in the rear. Explain a little more and you'll get a little more help.

www.marlincrawler.com has what you want. Your transmission is a W59, which is not modifiable. Marlin sells a 3RZ (your 2.7L engine) bellhousing that can be used to mount a R150 manual tranny (stronger transmission, 1st gear modifiable) to the 2.7L engine.

ok a little more explaining to do... I guess what I'm looking for is difrent gears. If i can find some thing like a "racing gear box" that would be cool. What i really want is to just get rid of that Fith gear. The "over drive" gear.

try customtacos.com

but...what you are looking for will most likely be a 1-off custom part that will cost major bucks...if it is even available so good luck. As Showstop pointed out...noone bothers to mod these trannys for racing...ain't worth the trouble.
