    need help mx72 cressida wagon 5speed swap

    So auto trans died and I'm going to be doing a 5speed swap but the one thing is the w58 I got is out of a mkll supra and not the mklll so how much do I need to cut or should I sell it and just find a mklll trans ?

    dont quote me, but i dont think theres much of a difference. hopefully someone knows. im swapping the W50 out of my MKI Supra with a supposed MKII W58, someone told me that MKI W50, MKII W58 and MKIII W58 are basically the same and interchange besides possibly having to change shifters and driveshafts

    difference is going to be in the shifter position. if you bolt it up and the shifter doesn't line up with your hole (can't be 100% on how an a60 w58 goes in an x7), you can just buy the shifter stuff from an a70 w58.

    any way you cut it, you're going to be playing with how it sits to make it work + - an inch or so.

    The MkII w5x shifter position is about 2in farther forward than the MKIII.

    Which is still not as good as not having to cut AT ALL...

    also think about shifter position, do you WANT to reach that far forward when shifting and possibly bash your knuckles on the console?

    i've had complete shifter assemblies from jyards for $15, sold some for $75 so there's your price range.

    If you are going to use the MKII and cut the sheetmetal a bit, then use the early truck shifter stick. It has a quick dogleg, quite low on the shaft, and will move the shifter back into a more pleasant area.
