View Full Version : Brak's Back?

Hey guys...
Been out of the Celica game for a while, but if things work out, i might be back.. (insert Michael Corleone quote here)

I'm looking at a 96 convertible, and since it would be my first non 5th gen, i have a question...

does the 6th gen use the same S54 manual trans as the 5th gen?

Car has bad motor, and i always swap to manual while the motor is out, so I want to know if this extra S54 I've been saving will work.

I am pretty sure that the 5th Gen used the S53. The 6th Gen used the S54. But yes, they are interchangeable.

Thanks for reminding me, it's all clear again...

They are interchangeable, the S54 had a better gear ratio, or stronger synchro's or something...
I acquired two, when i swapped my '93

Also explains why i felt the need to specify S54 in my signature, but that was 6 years ago :amuse:

They you are all caught up and good to go.

If you buy the Celica that is.

Although, I heard a secret that owning a Celica is not a requirement around here.

ha ha, Yeah...
but then again 219 posts in the 9 years i've been around, shows my lack of Off topic participation...

Although, i have continued to follow the exploits of a few members on Facebook.

To be fair, OT posts don't count for your post count.

S54 has better synchros and shorter gears compared to the S53.
