I'm gonna guess you've either sold the car by now, or the W58 has long
since given out.

Celica wheel? Why?

Author marlboro bill ( ago)
I don;t remember him saying he was a performance driving expert. I'm sure
you were a pro straight from the womb, but those of us not born perfect
have to learn things. Why is it that anyone new to anything is now an idiot
who doesn;t deserve to breath? Everyone starts somewhere. Grow up.

Author Tyler Horstman ( ago)
How much did that cost you?

People may say the Japanese don't do V8's as well as the Americans, but
they sure do sound a lot better. 

Author cory newlon ( ago)

an adapter? im lookin into putting an r154 in my 98 but if w58 is bolt on
ill go that route.

Was this a difficult swap to perform? Did you do it yourself, or was it
done at a shop?!?! Absolutely gorgeous ride by the way!

Author accordv6er ( ago)
@BadBoyMike3 close mate. It was the sc300. The UZs (as stated) never had a
manual with them.

i bought a sc 400 because of this video

Author CockYaLegS ( ago)
Hey, first saw your car on SM a while back and fell in love. I am looking
at picking up an sc4 soon and would like to do a 5 spd swap. My only
concerns are that I am going for 98+ car, and didnt know if the swap would
require anything extra due to the vvti, etc? Also, I currently have an R154
from an a70. Obviously the speedo is driven manually by gear where as the
sc is electronic. Any advice?

Author Kyler Jensen ( ago)
why did you go with the W58 over the R154

Author Eric K ( ago)
sweet ride man...I use to have a 93 SC400, I miss it ;(

Author Jake Breyck ( ago)
@Ill06Taco Lol thanks ;-)

Author panzerfaust375 ( ago)
How long has she been manual for? The w58 is a fairly decent box but I
found for my driving it wasn't strong enough. I've heard there is steel
plate w58 which is more expensive but a bit stronger. Think that's the one
up against the 2jz n/a supra. I've heard of some going for years with w58
in applications that far surpass there stock applications. I've got a 1uz
now supercharged tied to an original auto (2nd 1uz). This time I have a
r154 waiting. Still in 2 minds about it though.

Author Jesse Lawton ( ago)
can i have your car? thanks .... ;p Nah oiy looks fuckin hot :)

Author Dan Short ( ago)
That car is sick. I was choosing between an s13, an sc, miata, and is300

Author Esko Lopez ( ago)
Does the ecu need to be changed because its auto - to manual? Can someone
clear it up Cheers Ive

Author HKMediaChicago ( ago)
props for great work. that SC is very clean, the conversion is definitely
unique in my opinion.

Author Derrick Cui ( ago)
hmm, what about swapping a 1uz into a OEM SC300 5-speed?

Author Jason Park ( ago)
@volleyballurrrr looks like an is300 steering wheel to me

Author powersliding ( ago)
suddenly the v8 doesnt sound lazy

Author velocity211 ( ago)
@volleyballurrrr it's a stock toyota celica/corolla/matrix steering wheel,
and yes it has an airbag.

Author Will R ( ago)
@Namord yeah but im saying that one looks like an aftermarket wheel

Author Will R ( ago)
