T56 Magnum 6-speed manual transmission swap for the MKV Supra

I think everyone knows me and the whole "not my supra" rants. You know I can not stand the fact that Toyota subcontracted out the iconic Supra name to be built based off a BMW Z4 chassis. Come on Toyota, do you really think a Z4 is the Supra equivalent!!??

Well, whatever! The deed is done, Toyota settled and now we have to settle (or move on - and I don't blame those that do!)... but it is too ironic that my wife actually loves these cars. I guess it is like they say "opposites attract"!

So... I figured what better way to make her happy and allow me to get closer to the enemy than buy one in the hopes of putting a man pedal in the car. The goal is to build a GR-Series 6-speed transmission kits for the car. Just like all the other chassis I offer swaps for the kit will be based on the Tremec T56 Magnum transmission, which is King of the street 6-speed boxes. Here's to hoping it is possible, as this is more difficult than most other cars, as the MKV is not offered from the factory as a manual transmission. So there is no bolt in clutch pedal option, no bellhousing option, and uncharted territory when it comes to the engine controls and electronics. It is a little bit daunting but I am hopeful this will come to fruition quickly!

Here is a video review from a MKIV aficionado and MKV pessimist.
