Fwd E series transmission swap (into a 92 GT)
« on: January 19, 2015, 12:47:23 AM »
A while back I swapped over to the stronger E series transmission.

I will post pictures of the ins and outs of changing to this transmission and what parts I've used to make it happen.


The advantages;
-Stronger axles
-Stronger internals
-larger clutch surface area
-oil cooler compatible
-less aggressive gearing


The negatives
-added weight
-less aggressive gearing
-more expensive internals



The car is a 92 GT hatchback. the transmission is from a 1991 Lexus ES250 and the trans code is E52. I had an S54 from a 6 gen celica before that with a fidanza flywheel and clutch master clutch
this setup I'm using a cheap ebay chromoly lightened flywheel (3sgte which bolted right up to my 5sfe with no modification) and a Southbend stage two clutch for a 3sgte.

the cables are stock ones for a 5sfe
the axles are from a 91 es250/camry v6
the clutch is 3sgte
the flywheel is 3sgte
the throwout is es250/camry v6
the driver side trans mount is es250/camry v6
the rear is st165 (tweaked a bit)
the rubber rear mount is custom from a 68-72 GM Abody rear control arm bushing
the front has no mount.
