That may be tricky. Thereís space but I canít see it not being tight.

I know the tcase is supposed to match up from the 2nd gen RAV4 too. Iím waiting to see pictures of the two bolted together.

Some updates

The car didnít fire.

I need to bump up the fuel pressure, swap pumps and ghetto rig some fans so I can try to see if it drives.

I purchase an MRP Performance MAF  tube because the spectre one was garbage

I ordered a filter.

Getting down to the last few things I need.

Trying to sort the AC too so I can have AC too.

Hereís the video of the first fire!

First picture is the shifter cables before modifying the shifter base.
The second picture is after modifying the shifter base.
The third picture is the shifter base mods-raised .5Ē shifted rearward~1-1.5Ē
Fourth picture is why you need the rack strap relocation part I made.

So I'd need to use a tcase from a 2nd gen rav4 to use the awd transmission? Can you post some pics of the RH side where my master cylinder would be, as in the pics you posted it looks really close to being in the way lol

Some updates

For mounting Frankenstein now offers the hard to find steel mount in aluminum. I believe this is the part needed to use a 1988-91 camry upper mount

https://frankensteinmotorworks.squarespace.com/shop/p/left-side-e-series-transmission-mount


Also they offer a steel rear mount, if that is the same as an Alltrac rear mount then ideally with my car side mount and Lou brooks bushing to make everything bolt in with purchasable parts.

Still working on the rear mount design but hopefully soon.
