07-03-2007, 03:56 PM
i am in the process of putting a turbo in my 5sfe. but looking at the tranny i really dont think when im done that i will really like how it works because i want the car to be real fast off the line but then i would like it to top out real high to like 160mph. now could i put a 6 speed into my car or isnt it possible.
would i just be better off getting a v6 camry 5spd tranny.
thanks Dan

theres no fwd transmission that is a 6spd that will work with a 5sfe....

As far as the solara trans its geared really long the car really wont do anything as far as power goes... you rbest to stay with the s53 you have on your car as its made for low end / lower gearing.

oh ok another thing what about an lsd tranny like from an mr2 do they make that and would it work

Yes turbo MR2 transmissions can be mated up to the 5sfe and 3sgte. some things just have to be switched since it's setup for MR not FF.

I dunno why you want to change the transmission on a 5s it's not going to help you.

i was just looking for better options with the trannys if it would make it drive better if the gears would be higher or lower. things like that. and does anyone know what would need to be changed like the axles or something
thanks Dan

axles, hubs, shift linkage is on the opposing side of the tranny so it would need to be drilled and reversed.

Shorter gears would be better. S54 is your best bet.

Or, since you seem to have the money, is have your tranny rebuilt and have the shop re-gear the tranny with the gears you are requesting.
