Something like 88-92 was the 3S-FE, I'm fairly sure it was mated to the S53 like the Celicas.

Yup.....read up on the today.

I am actually trying to determine what tranny I have. At this point I think it is an E56. Though I can't find any identifying marks on it. Anyone know where I can find an ID??? If it is actually an S54 where would I find the ID on that tranny model??? I hope someone speaks up.

ok I think I have it all figured out. I'm 99% positive that my tranny is an E56.

Where did you find the designation or identifier for it? :)

I didn't. I looked in my copy of RM380E which has all the possible trannys for the NA 6th gen worldwide. I just compared the physical features of my tranny to the illustrations in the manual for the S54 and E56. It's a lilttle difficult since the illustrations of the parts only detail the portion of the part they want you to focus on. But there were a few parts on the E56 that gave it away. For example, the electro-mechanical speed sensor on the E56 is mounted through the rear of the differential and has the harness plug attached at a 90 angle to the axis of the rotating gear. On the S54 the electro-mechanical speed sensor is mounted through the top of the differential and the harness plug is attached along the axis of the rotating gear at a 000 angle. That was just one of the ways I figured it out.

I'm pretty excited that I have the E56. First of all it is part of the "E" series of heavy duty trannys. Secondly, it has triple syncros on second gear and double syncros on third gear. I also has double syncros on reverse. The third reason I am excited is because the final drive is right between the S53 and the S54. I was concerned that, being a daily driver, the RPMs would be too high for the significant amount of highway action it would see. I also will be dumping 93 octane in it and I don't want to fill up all the time. Not that money is an issue, its not. But it would be a bitch, ya know?
