We put a 1/8" washer in the pressure relief valve for the oil pump to raise the pressure.

Any new video of the beast? How are you liking the new ratios? Can you feel the added weight of the new gearbox?

This is a very cool trans swap I've been following the whole time. What did you end up doing for axles? Transmission just bolt on?

Not yet, I need a retune. I needed it before I broke the transmission. Its not a direct bolt on by no means. DSS did my axles with my measurements

Very basic run down of whats was done:

Transmission E153 (MR2 Turbo - comes LSD if specified, Camry V6 – no LSD)
Throwout bearing MR2 or Camry V6 (For E153)
Make custom shift cable bracket
Make custom rear transmission mount
Modify rear transmission mount bracket
Modify passenger CV axle mounting bracket
Need Camry V6 driver CV axle (only using tripod shell)
Modify driver CV axle (shorten shaft and install tripod shell)
Drill and tap transmission case
Make custom bracket for top of transmission to allow an additional two bolts for mounting
Freeze plugs
Shift linkage from original transmission needs modified

There are always more than one way to do something, I did it this way so all the factory shift cables would work, The Camry and MR2 uses different shift cables and the mount is different on the shift linkage, you could run the linkage that came with this transmission and fight to figure out which cables to run. This is all the info I am putting out. I will have prices soon for brackets and mounts. If you buy these I will take the time to do a write up of what exactly has to be done start to finish.

Swap cost me 2100. I had two gears that needed changed. Place I ordered the transmission from gave me the wrong vin and I wasted 220 on gears that I cant use and had to reorder the right gears.

I'm about to tear into this transmission, change the FD, locking differential, and put new bearings/syncros in. Any recommendations for locking differentials and where to get bearings/syncros from?
