im in a middle of a swap on my celica st and noticed that my car has a gear driven speedo cable and the motor im putting in has a speed sensor do any other celicas have speed sensors in them or can anybody give me tips on how to swap the sensor out of the trans for a gear driven cable cause i have looked everywhere on the net to do it that would be great

What trans are you replacing it with?

You might be able to pull the gear assy from your trans and install it in the new one.

im not sure what trans it has it might be the e153 cause it says tranction control on the intake manifold.

Are you putting in a 2nd or 3rd gen 3sgte? 3rd gen came with electric speed sensor I believe and very late model jdm 2nd gens came with one as well. When I did my swap, my 2nd gen was a late 93, maybe early 94 and had an electric speedo sensor.

What are you doing for your tranny? Converting the awd, using the stock n/a tranny, or e153 from camry/solara/mr2?

Whichever tranny you get hopefully will come with the speedo cable. Otherwise you could pull one from a junkyard or go to the dealer.

thats what i think it is to cause i just got an mr2 clip which i regret doing cause of hard to find parts, but i think it has the e153 trans cause it said traction control on the intake manifold

Yup, got to get a cable from the junker or the dealer, as well as modifying the shift linkage. Bunch of stuff about it in the Forced Induction forum stickies.
