While this is a very cost prohibitive swap, I feel that it would be ideal for my chassis (96 sc300) and stock 2jzge.
The 4 speed automatic transmission is anemic at best and chokes the engine completely, stripping away all the fun it could provide.
I have a fairly low mileage (127k) chassis with everything original in very good shape.
I'd like to retain the vehicle and make it a bit more fun to drive.
I've been having fun on highway ramps for the past 2 years, but I feel the biggest shortcoming of this car is the automatic transmission.
I'm afraid that I might have to settle for a 5 speed swap instead, because the V160 and V161 swap in hardware only will cost more than the value of the vehicle itself.

Let's hear what the gear-heads on this forum have to say.

This looks like a great road to do some spirited driving on.
While you're on the 6 spd topic, if you could source out a reasonably priced 6 speed swap for my sc300 I would be indebted for life ;)
