A customer recently brought me his beautiful 40k mile 1997 MKIV supra automatic for a GR700 swap and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to document the manual swap process in a 1993-1998 supra. This is the first video in the series, and it will cover the removal of the stock automatic transmission, and install of the GR-Series swap kit.
The removal portion includes removal of the stock auto shifter assembly, removal of driveshaft, torque converter, transmission cooler lines, and flexplate.
The install portion includes modification of the tunnel to fit the 6-speed shifter, installation of my conversion tunnel cover, setting the proper gap for the hydraulic throw out bearing, installing the shifter, trimming the front case of the transmission, modifying the reverse solenoid, and crossmember install.
So, without further delay, here is part one!
